One of only 108 Series 1 3.8s registered by Jaguar bearing the Coventry registration, 4857 WK, this extraordinarily preserved example was UK supplied new on 22nd May 1963 to Mr Robert Kelly for personal export. Mr Kelly worked for American Express and was on assignment in the UK clearly intending to ship the E Type on completion of his tenure in1964. 4857 WK was sold by Mr Kelly in 1971. Very much enjoying the car for the next 44 years, Mr Hughes the second owner kept a detailed hand written log detailing this E Types maintenance and history. More important though, today, not only does the car drive beautifully, it retains all its original panels matching numbers and is totally rust free. Originally supplied in Cream (code ICI - 5619, PPG - 8157, GIP and A&W - 18442, PJ J863) We understand the car was top coated by the first owner in his favourite Green to sit amongst his small collection of British sports cars from a similar era and in the same livery. Thankfully, the decision was made that this coat of paint would be limited to the exterior panel work only and clearly, it was applied without the car being dismantled other than exterior brightwork. Therefore everything but remains in the original factory paint finish including the floor pan bulkhead and the engine frame. Even the factory production crayon marks are just visible on the bulkhead and across the radiator fan mounting bracket. 4857 WK also has its original tool kit and spare keys, and importantly a fantastic continuous history file. It is without a doubt one of the very few untouched Es anywhere today. Currently being very carefully stripped to allow for a quality glass out bare metal repaint to the outer shell with new rubbers. As part of this careful light restoration, the engine and gearbox will be fully overhauled along with other mechanical parts, with every event of this process being photo recorded and original components set aside. A rare opportunity to acquire one of these early cars, but to be able to have a say in the finish in making it ready for its continued journey into the next half century.
