  • It’s unlikely that many people booked a one-way ticket from Stockholm to Coventry in 1966, but that is exactly what one father and son did.

    Waiting for them upon their arrival was no tourist coach however, instead their onward journey would be made in a gleaming pair of brand new Jaguars. On the 15th July 1966, Elgestad Senior and Junior arrived at Browns Lane to collect their respective new motorcars; a black Mark X for the father and this Opalescent Dark Green E-Type for his son.

    The drive back home to Stockholm must certainly have left an enduring impression, as the 29 year old Pekka Elgestad would go on to keep his E-Type until his recent passing.

    In Mr Elgestad’s ownership the E-Type has never been damaged, dismantled or restored and remains in unbelievable original condition.

  • A complete recommission of the front and rear suspension systems was completed in 2005 and the bodywork has been continually rust protected from new. 

    Presented today in quite astounding original condition, and now re-registered on its original 1966 Coventry number plate, this really is an opportunity like no other.

    Whether your desire is silverware in the burgeoning preservation classes at Concours d’Elegance, that authentic E-Type driving experience or indeed subtle improvements while retaining the original look then this is the perfect E-Type Coupe.
