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 marque clubs to join and many driving and Concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent, widely admired collector car.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Presented in its original color scheme of Silver Blue over Dark Blue hides, this is a fine example of an early XKE with matching numbers and offered from long term ownership.

Originally, the car was built at the Coventry works on November 5th, 1963 and dispatched for the USA nine days later. Arriving on these shores, it was delivered new through Jaguar Cars of New York to its first owner, Mr. Steven Heltzer of Lawrence, New York, in the Long Beach area of Long Island. Its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Certificate confirms all of these details and denotes that a matched dark blue interior and blue top completed its first guise.

We understand that the car has remained in the US all of its life, with over two decades spent with an owner in Texas. In the late 1990s the car received a complete restoration by the owner of an acknowledged expert restorer of British cars, Harry Warren, appropriately of Buckingham Palace in Dallas, Texas. On its completion, the car would reward the then owner with a handful of Jaguar Club North America awards including 1st in Class 16 and People's Choice, and was judged to 99.96 points. Shortly after this the car passed into its present hands.

As offered today, this XKE has seen limited use in recent times but remains in very clean order throughout. An early, 3.8-liter, covered headlight Roadster with the desired early dash layout, presented in its original and attractive colors, this car offers a great way to experience the E-Type legend.
