It's original owner, the late William C Kennedy founder of Redex Industries, named his company after the great Redex trials-the around Australia Reliability trials in the 1950's.

Whilst visiting his uncle in 1953, Henry Dighton, the driver of car #54 in the race around Australia, William was fascinated. He was in awe as he watched his uncle push his car to the limits in the name of reliability.

These brave men endured the extreme conditions of the Australian outback, with it's monsoonal rains, challenged by deadly creatures the elements... not to win, but all in the name of reliability!
The harsh conditions inspired William to 16 years custom ordered his Etype to include every factory option on offer at the time including air con. :)

Almost 2 decades after the Redex trials in 1969, William honored his uncle and named his company Redex, after the great race that shook the Australian nation.

After the company grossed millons on its popular Moo Goo product, sold around the world including in Australia, he insisted on ordering the car in a deep dark sable brown with beige interior to resemble the Australian bush and mud tracks he witnessed that day.

The car his uncle drove was a Jaguar 3 1/2, a precursor to the 3.8L engine that would be found 8 years later in the first etype.

Turning the automotive industry on its head upon its introduction in 1961, Jaguars E-Type was nothing short of the most spectacular car the world had seen in the post-war era. Even Enzo Ferrari declared the E-type the most beautiful car in the world as Jaguar proved yet again that it was one of the worlds top manufacturers of sports cars. What was perhaps more impressive was the E-Types performance. It boasted a 060 mph time of 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph.

Built on the 24th of October 1969 as one of the first etypes to offer power steering, and 3 speed auto transmission chassis no. 42943 The car was delivered just a month later after order new to via Jaguar Cars in New York to William in Ohio, on 21st of November 1969 as per its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.
It remained there, barely seeing the outside if his garage as it was used only on the road when the Kennedy family took it to their summer holiday to their house in the Hamptons. Clocking less than 60,000 original miles.

The E-Type remained off the road for roughly the next three decades before it was purchased by its current owner as a restoration project and imported to Australia. Said to be a rust-free example when purchased by the consignor, it was the perfect candidate for a restoration. The project took just under 16 months and utilised original parts wherever possible, impressively documented with pictures and accompanied by invoices/receipts accounting for the work done all completed in Australia by Australians. The car presents wonderfully throughout as a very original example of Jaguars most iconic car.

Beautifully restored, rare production spec, and a fantastic tribute to Australia automotive racing history, this is an E-Type not to be missed.
