This is a superb driving, ultra-usable and very genuine UK supplied, matching numbers Jaguar E-Type Roadster that's still in its original factory colours of Willow Green with Black leather upholstery. OOV 996G was manufactured on the 28th October 1968 and supplied new by Birmingham dealer P J Evans and comes with an impressive history dating back to the mid 1970's. The Jaguar was in the hands of a Sutton Coldfield based antiques dealer during the early 1970's and in 1975 sold to a Staffordshire based owner who kept the E-Type for 19 years. In 1994, the E-Type was sold by the E-Type Centre to a Jaguar enthusiast in Wakefield and after 22 years of ownership the car was sold to the most recent owner, a retired motor engineer who lived just a few streets away. This very genuine original car has had just three owners in 44 years and has been driven over to us faultlessly from West Yorkshire. When the E-Type was purchased by its Staffordshire based owner in 1975, the E-Type had covered 63,000 miles injust seven years. In 1979 the car was subject of substantial restoration work to include a new bonnet, new underbody floor pans, new sills, a complete re-paint in the cars original colour (invoice from 1979 on file), re-trim as per original, renewed chrome work and during the early 1980's was treated to an engine rebuild with the mileage at 80,000 by this point. A large file of Martin Robey invoices are on file throughout the 1980's and the engine rebuild was completed by Autosprint Racing Engines in Birmingham. The engine was treated to new pistons, main and big end bearings, re-ground crankshaft, performance camshaft, cam bearings, cam followers, new valve guides, lightened flywheel, new oil pump and timing chain. Remarkably, whilst maintaining regular but very low usage, the E-Type has only covered 8000 miles since its mid 1980's engine rebuild, all verified in the vehicle history file. From 1994 to 2016 with its next owner, the E-Type covered 5000 miles with MOT's and tax discs on file showingthe car was in annual use. Over this period the car was subject of regular expenditure with invoices on file for upkeep and maintenance. In 1994 the E-Type was treated to further bodywork, wheel arches were taken back to bare metal and treated to repairs and paintwork as necessary. Invoices throughout the 1990's detail various mechanical work to the braking, suspension, steering, electric and fuel system and in 2008 The Hutson Motor Company rebuilt the carburettors, fitted new steering rack mountings, fitted a new fuel pump and replaced the bonnet struts. In 2015 shortly before selling the car after 22 years of ownership, over 2000 was spent on new engine mountings, new fulcrum shaft bearings, new rear hub inner seals, various new ignition items, new filters, new choke and speedo cables. In 2016 the most recent owner purchased the E-Type and has covered around 1000 faultless miles in the car. As a retired motor engineer with ramp facilities at home, the car was treated to a thorough going over toinclude removal of the rear subframe cage which was subsequently rebuilt with new brakes and suspension springs. OOV 996G has driven over 60 miles to us and performed faultlessly. The engine is incredibly strong and fit, it holds excellent oil pressure, is very impressive under load offering brilliant performance and cooling remains correct. The E-Type sat for sometime in York traffic on route to us and remained at correct temperature. The E-Type holds the road superbly, braking is sharp and efficient, and the car offers a fabulous driving experience. OOV 996G presents very well and as an honest original car. Paintwork is now over 30 years old and has a lovely deep shine and patina. The bodywork is of a very good standard and the various blemishes and imperfections really highlight what an honest, older restoration this really is. The bonnet is structurally outstanding and the 1994 waxoyl is still in place, still doing its job. This is a really solid, straight and usable car and is a great basisfor improvement but also ideal for putting into immediate regular use or long distance touring. The hood is excellent, the chrome work and chrome wire wheels are superb and the interior having been last trimmed in the 1970's looks nicely aged, honest and naturally has a true patina. All the gauges work, the car appears very correct and it most certainly will not disappoint if looking for a usable, genuine UK E-Type. This really is a great buy; its in a superb rare period colour, it drives beautifully, it comes with excellent provenance, history, matching numbers and is offered onto the market a very sensible price.

1968 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 (W109) 48,461 milesBlue Coachwork with Blue Leather InteriorLong before the AMG badge appeared on production cars, 4 years before BMW founded the M Division and more than 10 years before Audi Sport came into existence, Mercedes-Benz produced the fastest ever 4 door production saloon car. The rest, as we say, is history.Erich Waxenberger was an engineer at Mercedes-Benz. The story goes that Waxenberger was told by a particular motoring journalist that he was making 'granny' cars He responded by squeezing a mighty 6.3 litre V8 into a car normally powered by an engine half that size.Chief Mercedes-Benz engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut (the very same man who ran the 1955 300SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe as his company car) was invited to test the prototype, and legend has it that at the first set of traffic lights he jumped out and opened the bonnet to find out how the mighty engine and running gear had been squeezed inside the engine bay.We have a lot to thank that journalist for.The 300SEL 6.3 was a masterstroke; a car capable of carrying 5 occupants in great comfort at more than 120mph, an incredible feat for the 1960s. It was praised by the press at the time as 'the greatest saloon car in the world', praise indeed when luxury saloon car competition came from Rolls Royce and Cadillac.To further prove the concept, Waxenberger took the 300 SEL 6.3 to Macau, entering in the 6 hour endurance race to prove it could cope with hour after hour of demanding driving. In the testing that followed, Waxenburger met up with a Mr Hans Werner-Aufrecht, one of the founding fathers of the company we would affectionally know as AMG.These two pioneers then began experimenting with increased air flow and bore, resulting in the famous Red Pig - a 6.8 litre race prepared version of the 300 SEL, a car that would take second place in the 1971 24 hours of Spa race.The 300 SEL 6.3 proved to the world not only that an unassuming car could pack a significant punch, but that such a car would be hugelypopular and commercially viable, carving a path for many great cars of the 1970s, 80s, 90s and 00s.If it wasn't for Waxenberger's creative (and genius) response to the journalist's comments, we may never have gotten iconic super saloons such as the Mercedes E55 AMG, BMW M5, Audi RS6 and even the Lotus Carlton and all of the other fast four doors that we know and love!In short, the 300SEL 6.3 is the founding father of the sports saloon movement, making it a hugely important car to enthusiasts, collectors and investors alike.Whether you use it for a run to Goodwood, stretch the legs on a continental trip or just admire it in your collection, this car will not disappoint.This particular 300SEL 6.3 is the highly prized property of SL Shop director Sam Bailey. Sam acquired the car from the President of the Mercedes-Benz club, who had cherished this vehicle for more than 10 years.Accompanying this car is an impressive document file detailing many years of careful stewardship.In the last 12 months andunder Sam's ownership this car has had over 10,000 lavished on it, addressing all of the areas that could be classed as 'lurking investments', or areas that would be cause for future concern. The engine, suspension, bushes and mechanicals have been dealt with by a renowned 6.3 specialist, who was given carte blanche to make this car drive as well as a 300SEL 6.3 can.The 300SEL 6.3 features advanced air suspension, the system for which can be complicated to set up and difficult to get right. This car has recently undergone significant work to the air suspension with the UKs premier 6.3 specialist, the same specialist who has cared for this car for the previous 10 years.During Sam's ownership it was noted that the car would 'settle' overnight, indicating an issue with the air suspension. The entire system was inspected, and a very small leak was discovered in the centre of one of the passenger air bellows, causing the problem. An issue was found with where the bellow (or air bag) meets the mountingface of the pump housing. To rectify the issue, the bellow was replaced, rust proofed, treated and painted. All the fittings and bolts were cleaned, with all new seals used before the tank was fitted back to the subframe. A new passenger front air suspension switch was fitted, along with new pipe seals. All of the linkage was then checked and the entire system adjusted to millimetre perfect measurements.After all of this work, the documentation even states that 'measurements (of the suspension height) were taken at 4 points and suspension hasn't moved a millimetre'.The very same specialist also spent time getting the timing and ignition set up just right, including the addition of hand made HT leads.This is a small snapshot of the sort of calibre of maintenance this car has enjoyed, both under Sam's ownership and with previous owners.A 300SEL 6.3 is rare in it's own right, however this car is a Right Hand Drive model - we know of only 4 of these in existence. This car is also a 'non sunroof' model,which makes it all the more intriguing. As many 300SEL 6.3s were specified with all the options ticked, finding one without a sunroof points to a first owner who very carefully considered the options list before placing the order (if you know any different, please do get in touch so we can update our records).Although Sam adores this car, he simply does not have the time to use and enjoy it as much as he would like, and has made the difficult decision to part ways with this iconic saloon. 1968 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 (W109) 48,461 milesBlue Coachwork with Blue Leather InteriorLong before the AMG badge appeared on production cars, 4 years before BMW founded the M Division and more than 10 years before Audi Sport came into existence, Mercedes-Benz produced the fastest ever 4 door production saloon car.
