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.

1966 gained an additional 2+2 coupé variant on a 9" longer wheelbase. Intended to extend the E-Type's appeal beyond the traditional sports car-buying market, the new 'family orientated' 2+2 came with improved visibility thanks to an increased glass area, more headroom, improved heating and ventilation, additional luggage space and optional Borg-Warner automatic transmission.

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

This One owner example was sold by Keys Auto Exchange of Albany, New York on September 27, 1966. The car remained a beloved family member for all that time. The owner kept fastidious records and took great care of his pride and joy. With the exception of a respray in the original color this E-Type remains in factory original condition. The interior is beautifully preserved and unmodified. The black leather seats are nicely patinated but free of rips and tears. The Becker radio and wing seat belts, both listed on the invoice, are still present and no modifications appear to have be made.

Mechanically the car has been well maintained and sparingly used so it runs and drives like the highly original car it is. The only limitation on spirited driving are the period Michelin X tires – fitted in 1968 (receipts included). Under the hood the engine bay is indeed stock, proper and reflective of a very original well maintained car.

A look in the trunk shows all the original tools in the correct wraps and pouches - even an original fan belt is present. The paperwork with the car is superb. The original bill of sale, warranty card, service book, correspondence with the Jaguar Company and of course the usual handbooks and documents compliment 1E76006. The service books of tremendous detail illustrate a passionate and careful owner.

Series 1 E-Types have become very valuable in the last decade. This highly original, documented, one-owner E-Type Coupe represents one of the last accessible price points for one of the most highly sought-after machines around.
