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

On October 24th, 1967, this stunning Series I E-Type first roared to life in Jaguar's Coventry workshops. Fitted with the powerful 4.2-liter XK inline-six and fully synchronized transmission, this left-hand-drive, open two-seater was finished in Willow Green. On November 8th of that same year, the E-Type Roadster began its voyage to the United States to be united with its first owner, through the East Coast Jaguar importer at the time; Jaguar Cars - New York.

The new sporting E-Type Roadster was first titled in Virginia on December 12th, 1971, to what is believed to be the cars first owner; a Dentist by the name of Dr. John E. Murdock, Jr. of Chester, VA. The Jaguar would remain in Dr. Murdock's ownership until his passing in 1998, at which point the consignor acquired the car from the estate.

Soon after his purchase of the one-owner Jaguar, the consignor embarked on a comprehensive, nut-and-bolt restoration. The spectacular job performed was not completed until 2014, and included all aspects of the car. The bodywork and sub-frame were stripped to bare metal, professionally sealed, primed, and repainted in classic and correct for the year British Racing Green, a color just a little darker than the Willow Green color applied to the car when new. The original, matching numbers engine was rebuilt with new pistons, bearings and seals, while the crankshaft was balanced and hardened valve seats was installed. The original fully-synchronized transmission was professionally rebuilt as well, as was the steering rack, braking system and suspension system, electrical system and gauges. New leather trim and carpets were fitted, along with a new convertible top and tonneau cover. The cars chrome and brightwork were refurbished or replaced as needed, and a new set of original specification 72-spoke chrome wire wheels were installed. The restoration is documented by many receipts and digital photos.

Immediately after its extensive restoration, this breathtaking E-Type Roadster made its debut at a JCNA sanctioned Concours d'Elegance, and deservedly won Best in Class. While the consignor has driven the E-Type just 1,000 miles since the extensive restoration was completed, he has shown the car with great success at JCNA events, and the cars pedigree includes no less than nine 1st Place Awards at International JCNA concours events, as well as two 2nd Place Awards.

With the undeniable good looks of the legendary Series I E-Type compounded by this cars immaculately restored condition and classic color, this particular E-Type is really a top example of the iconic sports car. The car retains its original, matching numbers engine block, cylinder head and transmission, and is offered with the original tool roll, a jack and knock-off hammer, service manual, restoration receipts and photos, and its Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate. Ready for further concours outings or high-speed rallies such as the Copperstate 1000, this beautifully restored E-Type deserves serious consideration.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note that as a very late production Series 1 E-Type, this car would be more commonly referred to as a Series 1 1/2, and it has been restored with a new bonnet. Furthermore, the chassis number stamped in the front sub frame does not match the number under which the car is identified by the chassis plate--which appears to be from a 1962 Jaguar E-Type Coupe. Additionally, there is no engine number stamped on the cylinder head.
