THE JAGUAR E-TYPE

Introduced in 3.8-liter form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and a 150mph top speed. Nowadays it would be impossible for a single model to cause such a stir but here was a civilized production sports car that looked like a Le Mans prototype and could outperform just about anything else on the road.

The E-Type's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular space frame extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3.8-liter, triple-carburetor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed but whatever the installed horsepower, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb (227kg) less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motorcar.

The first significant up-grade occurred in October 1964 with the launch of the 4.2-liter version. Along with the bigger, torquier engine came a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear, and a superior Lockheed brake servo. From September 1968, Series II E-Types, incorporating safety upgrades previously fitted only in America, were released worldwide. In addition to revised lighting and switchgear, the front air intake was larger, and sat behind a full-width bumper. Power steering and air conditioning were now available as options.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This elegantly handsome, numbers matching, Series II coupe is a wonderfully original example that is believed to have covered fewer than 34,000 miles since being purchased by John T Johnson, on May 1st, 1969. In accordance with its original bill of sale, the car left the foreign car specialists at Sports Car Sales, Inc. of Idaho Falls, Idaho, wearing Jaguar's classic shade of Primrose yellow with a black leather interior.

Today, the car is believed to still flaunt the very same paint and leather that it was born with back in 1969, both of which are in remarkable unmolested condition. The car possesses a charming layer of patina throughout that can only be found in an original car that has been maintained to the highest of standards. In addition to the original jack, factory warranty book and data plate, the car will come with a log book documenting the the love that Mr. Johnson gave to this coupe. Furthermore, this wonderfully preserved E-type has been certified as an authentic matching numbers example by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. Their official Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the car. Since acquiring the car in 2008, the consignor - a prominent British car collector - has dutifully maintained the car to the same high standards that it has become accustom to over the years. The powerful 4.2 liter is noted as being one of the strongest and healthiest examples that the owner has come across. This car is said to be a most scintillating driving experience beckoning its new owner to get behind the wheel. The thrust from the series II power-plant ensures that a rush of adrenaline is never more than a drive away.

When considering this numbers matching Series II coupe's outstanding original condition, irreplaceable patina, chain of long term enthusiast ownership, and its documented history, the car is sure to offer its next caretaker the pride and satisfaction of owning a Series II Jaguar.
