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

This stunning Series 1 3.8-Liter E-Type Coupe was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar works on February 24th of 1964. As a left-hand-drive model the car was sent to Jaguar Cars of New York, where it was sold to its first owner – R Alson. According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, the car was finished in the classic combination of Carmen Red over a black interior.

In 1989, the consignor bought the coupe from Tom Foreman of Stanton Station, NJ. Shortly after purchasing the car, the decision was made to fully restore the coupe to its former glory. The well-respected European car specialists at Exoticars USA were entrusted with the project. During the 10-year restoration, every single component of the car was gone through - all reusable fasteners were cleaned to bright bare metal, draw-filed and re-plated, as were the front suspension arms, latches, linkages, and many other components. The engine, suspension, baking system, electrical system, and fuel system were all rebuilt. The Moss gear-box had its bearings, seals and gaskets replaced. The body was brought down to the bare metal before receiving a concours level paint job using Sikkens Autocryl. The interior was totally redone to a very high standard using top shelf materials. During the build the car received an electronic fuel pump, a full stainless steel exhaust system, a set of Koni shocks, and the ignition points were replaced with an invisible electronic unit. The end result was an absolutely perfect car that was as reliable as it was beautiful. Invoices from the restoration are on file and available for review. It should be noted that at some point in the car's early life, the original block was replaced with an earlier 3.8-liter block from a Mark IX – the engine does however retain its original, numbers matching head.

Post restoration, the stunning Series 1 coupe was shown at multiple east coast events where it took home a number of prestigious awards. Aside from being taken to events and Exoticars USA for upkeep, where the fuel tank and the engine's harmonic balancer were recently replaced, the coupe has seen very little use. Today the car remains in outstanding condition and is right at home amongst the country's finest E-Types, a true testament to the quality restoration that was performed over a quarter century ago. Few cars can rival the Jaguar E-Type in performance, beauty, and desirability - this particular Coupe is a superb, fully sorted example, coming out of long term ownership, ready to be enjoyed by its next caretaker.
