HISTORY OF THE CAR
OWNER ONE
 16th AUGUST 1968 TO 29th AUGUST 1968  ( 13 DAYS )
BUILT ON THE 8th JULY 1968, SOLD ON THE 16th AUGUST 1968 BY BLACK HORSE GARAGE TO A BRIAN CLEMENS WHO WROTE THE AVENGERS AND PROFFESIONALS TV SHOWS IN THE 60s AND 70s, IT HAD HIS PERSONAL NUMBER PLATE 140 MPH, HE WAS A E TYPE FAN, AND I HAVE PERSONALLY OWNED HIS PREVIOUS E TYPE FHC HE PURCHASED IN 1965, WHY HE ONLY KEPT IT FOR 13 DAYS, I AM NOT SURE?.
OWNER TWO
ALAN HERVEY BIRD, PURCHASED ON THE 29th AUGUST 1968, AND KEPT FOR 44 YEARS.
OWNER THREE
GEOFF WILSON, PURCHASED ON THE 24th NOVEMBER 2002, WHO DURING HIS OWNERSHIP RESTORED THE CAR OVER THE 20 YEARS OF OWNERSHIP, JUST NEEDING THE TRIM TO FINISH, HE DECIDED TO SELL IT TO ME, HE HAS TWO OTHER E TYPES, AND A COLLECTION OF OTHER CLASSICS, NOW IN HIS MID 70s, DECIDED TO SELL ON.
THIS IS BASICALLY A 2 OWNER UK SUPPLED E TYPE, THAT NEEDS VERY LITTLE TO FINISH, RUNS AND DRIVES VERY WELL.
WITH A FULL RESTORATION NOW COSTING IN EXCESS OF £120,000 AND EVEN ROUGH UK SERIES ONE CARS COSTING OVER £50,000, THIS IS GREAT VALUE, FOR ONE OF THE RAREST E TYPES BUILT.
