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 July 11, 1966. 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 delivered new in cream livery, with a black interior and top, and was shipped to the U.S. market to be sold through Jaguar Cars New York to its first owner John M. Flynn III.

It isn't known how long Mr. Flynn kept the car, but it is thought to have remained on the East Coast for much of its life, surfacing in Pennsylvania in the mid 2000s. By this time it is stated by its seller to have covered a little under 30,000 miles, but was in need of sympathetic refurbishment. It was sent to notable marque specialists Jag Connection of Allentown and received considerable attention. This included a repaint to the white livery it wears today, and a refurbishment of its interior. At the same time the car was gone through mechanically and also refurbished, rebuilding, replacing or refurbishing the technical aspect to return it to the road and to be reliable.

A little later the car migrated to the West Coast and in the last few years has been further improved preserving its integrity and originality but enhancing its cosmetic condition generally. Today, it is showing extremely well and is reported by its owner to be running driving equally well.

As it stands today, complete with a factory hardtop, this really is the iconic guise of the model, as these cars continue to be appreciated and appreciate.
