Jaguar E Type 3.8 OTS LHD Outside Bonnet Lock
Date Of Registration: 1961

This rare French barn find is one of the first 500 E-Types produced by Jaguar and one of the very early left hand drive, outside bonnet lock cars.

Chassis No. 875256 was delivered new to the Belgium Motor Company dealership in Brussels in July 1961 and was subsequently sold to ‘Societe de Civel Immeubles en Afrique.’ It resurfaced in France in 2015 and we believe it was imported from Luxembourg in 1975.

The car is very complete, although in parts, and was bought by the previous owner to be restored. He gave it to French restorers who started work on the car, but shortly after took it away and kept it safe in his garage in Grigny in the southern suburbs of Paris, France.

CMC purchased Chassis No. 875256 from him and are now currently restoring the car back to its original specification.

This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a very early outside bonnet lock E-Type Roadster and have it restored by the world’s premier Jaguar restoration company.
