Description

The Jaguar E-Type has become a total British automobile legend. It was manufactured between 1961 and 1975 and over 70,000 of them were produced worldwide. The success of the E-Type was due in no small part to its stunning looks, high performance and competitive pricing – the equivalent Ferrari of the day was costing three times more and delivering less horsepower!

With Jaguar’s racing pedigree from the 1950s still fresh in the memory, it’s no wonder the E-Type captured the hearts and minds of all who were at the launch, and if all E-Types aged as gracefully as the car offered here, then it’s easy to understand why that affection continues today. Built in 1966, this Series I car is fitted with the 4.2-litre power plant, often considered the best E-Type engine. For the 4.2, Jaguar introduced their own all-synchromesh gearbox along with improved seating and brakes. The new gearbox allowed faster changes and was well received in the motoring press at the time, offering an exhilarating driving experience for both pilot and passenger.

This particular matching numbers, series I, RHD example was acquired by the previous owner in late 2009. The car had some restoration in the late 80’s and pictures of this work can be seen in the history file. The car recently had £4500 spent on re-commissioning, carburettors rebuilt, new bell stainless steel exhaust, new rear callipers, diff oil seal, front callipers rebuilt, inlet-exhaust gaskets, replaced new master cylinder, new front and rear pads. New tyres and headlining are also on the car. The car comes with a Jaguar-Daimler heritage certificate, comprehensive service and MOT history.
