1961 Jaguar E Type

This vehicle is now sold, thank you.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very special, super-early production E Type coupe that is midway through a total restoration in the Team CJ Works. 885036 was the 36th left hand drive coupe manufactured and was supplied new in the stunning livery of Indigo Blue with Beige Connolly hide interior. The first owner was Eugene Bundick of the University of California at Berkeley. Mr. Bundick must have cut quite the dash on campus in the summer of ’61!

We first purchased 885036 back in 2002, eventually selling it to a repeat restoration client who commissioned a total Team CJ restoration. Unfortunately, life got in the way for that particular gentleman, and the project was put on hold indefinitely. Eventually we bought the car back and it has been waiting patiently in the wings for the restoration to be completed.

Before the project was put on hold, we had already completed the body restoration and fully rebuilt the original, matching numbers engine. All of the removed components have been carefully stored since the inception of the project, and it is now time to complete the restoration.

885036 may be purchased “as is” for completion elsewhere, although we would also be happy to discuss completion of the restoration in the Team CJ Works..

This vehicle is now sold, thank you.
