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 Moss-type 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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This striking 3.8-Liter E-Type was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar works on August 19, 1963. A left-hand-drive model destined for the United States, this E-Type was finished in Sand over a light tan interior with a black top. According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, it was delivered to Jaguar Cars in New York. The first owner was one Milano Andersen of Midland, Texas.

The intervening history of the car is not known at the time of cataloging, but the current owner, who acquired the car from a New Jersey enthusiast about 17 years ago, has worked to ensure that the car provides an enjoyable and thrilling motoring experience. Restored several years ago, the Jag was subject to a bare metal respray in Primrose Yellow over a freshly retrimmed red leather interior. The numbers matching engine was rebuilt and the original transmission—which had been replaced with an all-synchromesh 4-speed gearbox from a later, '65 E-Type—was serviced. Breathing through a two inch stainless steel exhaust system, the straight six is further abetted by an upgrading cooling system with an aluminum radiator and high velocity electric fan. With going well taken care of, stopping was also attended to with four-piston front brake calipers replacing the original units (although those come with the car). In the midst of this, the rest of the brake system was also rebuilt, along with the suspension—which was additionally fitted with an adjustable torsion bar, and a new wiring harness was installed.

This Jag would find a bit of movie fame as well with some important screen time at the beginning of the 2013 Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street as Jordan Belfort's (Leonardo DiCaprio title character) first big purchase to mark his initial success as a starting stockbroker. The yellow Jag, parked in front of a diner, would prompt Donnie Azoff (played by Jonah Hill) to approach Belfort and start the conversation that would set the pair of them on big scam that would play out over the course of the film.

Complete with its all-important Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate documenting that the car retains its matching numbers engine and a Picture Cars East letter to prove its film provenance, it has been recently detailed to a high degree. This droptop Jag is ready for summer drives and evening fun.
