Richards of England are looking for someone to purchase this 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 litre as a project, with the view of having it restored to concours level at our state-of-the-art workshops.

Once complete, you will become the proud custodian of an original and full numbers matching Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8.

Bespoke colour and specification options are available should you wish not to return 887475 to its original rare specification of black paint over red trim.


The Car

- Full numbers matching (engine, gearbox, differential & body) LHD car.

- Original black over red trim car (rare and desirable colour combination).

- Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirming the specification.

- Chassis No: 887475.

- Original bucket seats.

- Polka dot alloy dash car.


The Restoration

Our philosophy revolves around using traditional techniques (such as lead loading), restoring original parts where possible and only using the highest quality replacements where not. This attention to detail has led to our previous work winning multiple concours competitions.

The restoration process can be discussed in more detail with Paul (Richards of England owner) at a time that suits you.

Similarly, you can visit our website to view photo albums documenting some of our previous restorations, including a Jaguar E-Type Series 1 flat floor.


A ‘Coffee table’ leather bound restoration photo book will also be provided on following the E-Types completion. The leather cover being hand crafted from the same Connolly hide as used on your vehicle.
