An interesting and not well-known aspect of the Qvale LWE story. This lot comprises high-grade colour copies of four documents recording the first UK registration of the Qvale LWE as 5113 WK in 1999.

Sold Price: £120

They are – Certificate of registration (V379) dated 17 February 1999. MOT Test Certificate dated 6 March 2000. 02/01 Registration Disc dated 16 March 2000. Vehicle registration Document (V5). Plus, the original 01/02 Registration Disc dated 29 January 2001. The car was the first of a batch of four LWE, initially ordered by Briggs Cunningham, but it was separated from the other three and despatched to Kjell Qvale in San Francisco, still wearing its Cunningham livery. The Cunningham cars were duly registered in UK as 5514 WK, 5115 WK and 5116 WK. Had the Qvale car been registered at the same time, it would have been 5113 WK. After the Qvale car was bought at auction in 1998 and returned to UK for Lynx to recommission, John contacted DVLA to see if it would be possible to register the car as 5113 WK and succeeded – no mean feat given the DVLA culture at the time! An intriguing footnote to the Qvale LWE story. Fine.

A/31

A very impressive Javan Smith model of the Cunningham LWE 5114 WK (S850664), in his signature 1:8 scale.

Sold Price: £1,650

For comparison, the Peter Lindner Low Drag LWE model alongside is 1:24 scale (see Lot 68). The photograph does not do justice to the “presence” of Javan’s model. It is an imposing piece nearly two feet long and the level of detail is especially evident at this scale. Mounted on a wooden base, it is protected by a Perspex case. 5114 WK was the first of the three “Lightweights” that Briggs Cunningham entered Le Mans in 1963. Javan’s LWE models are among the rarest of his Jaguar creations as he has majored on the C-types and D-types There is a nice story attached to this model. John and Javan were chatting one day in late June 2001 about the Le Mans Legends race. Javan had seen the results and congratulated John on finishing 7th overall in 5114 WK. John explained that the car had performed faultlessly, and although the race itself was only about 45 minutes, the key to finishing was to be kind to the car. It was after all, nearly 40 years since it had last competed at Le Mans and was never designed to return, let alone after such a long time. Javan then offered to build a model of the car as a memento. John was greatly flattered and some weeks later Javan duly presented the model to John. Neat! Fine
