Registration no. RFU 979G
Chassis no. 1R20001
Engine no. 7R10109
Conceived and developed as an open sportscar, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in Coupé form. Aerodynamically, the Coupé was superior to the Roadster and a more accomplished Grand Routier, enjoying as it did a marginally higher top speed and the considerable convenience of a generously sized luggage platform accessed via the side-hinged rear door. In October 1964 an improved, 4.2-litre version arrived boasting a more user-friendly, all-synchromesh gearbox and superior Lockheed brake servo as part of the specification together with the bigger, torquier engine. Top speed remained unchanged at 150mph, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved acceleration. The first right-hand drive Series II Coupé produced, chassis number ‘1R20001’ benefits from a recent (April 2006) comprehensive cosmetic refurbishment that involved a total bodywork strip down, re-spray in original pale blue and rebuild with new rubber seals throughout. Reported as driving superbly on a recently completed lengthy outing, the car is offered compete with tool kit, restoration invoices, current road fund licence, Swansea V5 document, fresh MoT and Heritage Certificate confirming all matching numbers.
