1964 Jaguar E-TypeCall for Price

  • DESCRIPTION1964 Jaguar E-Type Custom Roadster Chassis no. 860402 The car was originally presented at the London Motor Fair (Show) at Earls Court in 1983. For a sum of ?50,000, a price in those days roughly equivalent to three or more original cars, the Bouillot Helsel E Type boasted 5 speed Jaguar synchromesh gearbox, beefed up suspension and an aesthetic makeover which was not only very striking, but far more luxurious than the original. This included matching luggage, a plush leather interior with burled walnut dashboard fascia and its own style of knock-off hubs. Boldly, the company used their own cream and burgundy throughout and a 'BH' insignia can be found across the headlining and on the luggage, while a chrome 'Boillot Helsel' signature can be found on the lower hood edge. It is not known how successful the venture was and consultation with knowledgeable Jaguar historians such as Philip Porter in the UK suggests that this may well be the sole example although the 'model' is referred to in Chris Harvey's 'E Type. End of an Era' and features on page 245 of this book. Today the car records just a couple of thousand miles on its odometer. The engine compartment is clean and detailed in a matching color scheme. The vendor reports the car runs well, and is a pleasure to drive. It is a one-of-a-kind automobile and very striking in appearance, a car that everyone will notice.
