The Jaguar E-Type

Jaguar would make a habit of shocking the automotive world. Sometimes the impact of its cars reached beyond the showrooms and exposition halls to rock popular culture, yet not even Jaguar's founder, Sir William Lyons, could have predicted the impact of the Jaguar E-Type.

When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the new Jaguar stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. Constructed using methods derived from the D-Type sports racing car, the E-Type was a technical marvel. The light and rigid monocoque chassis used the engine itself as a structural part of the car, with the long and sleek bonnet hinged at the front. The headlights were beautifully recessed in the fenders, and covered with contoured Perspex for a free flowing design and improved aerodynamics. The car featured 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes all around and a 4-speed manual transmission. The proven XK power plant was carried over from the XK150, and made sure the lithe Jaguar would exceed the 150mph mark.

Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed. With spare parts readily available, a number of marquee clubs to join and many driving and concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent collector car.


The Motorcar Offered

According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this Series 1 E-Type was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar works on January 4th, 1967. As one of the final Series 1 production cars built, this car featured the fully synchronized transmission and the 4.2-liter XK engine. The car was built with left hand drive and was painted in the beautiful light metallic color of Opalescent Silver Blue, set off by dark blue Connolly hides and a blue soft top. The new E-Type was dispatched from the factory on January 25, 1967, destined for the California sunshine and its first owner, a Mr. Robert Hensien of Sunnyvale, California.

The E-Type is believed to have remained in Hensien's ownership for decades, until relocating to the East Coast, where it joined the collection of Richard Reedy in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Reedy would use the car during the summer months, and supposedly had it shipped to the UK for several rallies in the 1990s. The car was purchased by Columbia, South Carolina accountant Denis Dabney in the late 1990's. Mr. Dabney, a long-time Jaguar enthusiast and JCNA member, showed the car at JCNA events, at one time scoring an impressive 995.9 points of 1000. The car re-located to California in the mid-2000s, where a thorough restoration was performed between 2005 and 2007. Photos from this period show the car completely disassembled for repaint in the original color, while the mechanical components were carefully refurbished. The car was purchased by Greg Johnson of Santa Ana in late 2007, remaining in his ownership until purchased by the consignor in 2011. The car has been serviced and maintained during his ownership, and most importantly, driven and exercised on a regular basis.

This beautiful E-Type is offered with an impressive history file, containing receipts, restoration photos and the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate documenting that the car appears just as it did when new, and retains its matching numbers engine. Complete with books, tools and a jack, here is a great example of the popular Jaguar E-Type.
