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 April 13th, 1967, this stunning Series I E-Type first roared to life in Jaguar's Coventry workshop. Fitted with the powerful 4.2-liter XK inline-six and fully synchronized transmission, this left-hand-drive, open two-seater was specified in maroon over a black leather interior with a matching black convertible top. On May 2nd of that same year, the E-Type Roadster began its voyage to the United States to be united with its first owner, a Mr. Everett Kendrick of Sault Ste. Marie, MI.

This sporting E-Type Roadster is believed to have been relocated to the Carolinas shortly thereafter. It would remain in singular ownership for decades, prior to being stored away. The odometer reading of less that 39,000 miles is in fact believed to be the Jaguar's original mileage.

More recently, this fine E-Type was restored to its original condition by renowned Charleston, South Carolina-based restorers, Amazing Grace Classic Cars. The comprehensive restoration included repainting the Jaguar to its factory-correct Opalescent Maroon paint and thoroughly sorting the mechanical systems, including a rebuild of the original engine, transmission, suspension and braking systems, and the installment of a new wiring harness. The interior was reupholstered in as-delivered black leather, and a new black soft top was fitted.

After its extensive restoration, this E-Type Roadster made its debut at the exclusive 2016 Santa Fe Concorso, where it received a Directors Award before completing the 750-mile Santa Fe 500 Road Tour. With the undeniable good looks of the legendary Series I E-Type compounded by the restored condition and striking color, this particular E-Type is really a lovely example of the iconic sports car. The car retains its original, matching numbers engine block and cylinder head, and is neatly equipped with a period radio. Ready for further concours outings or high-speed rallies such as the Copperstate 1000, this beautifully restored E-Type is offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.
