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 top speed of 150mph. 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 first significant upgrade occurred in October 1964 with the launch of the 4.2-liter version. Along with the bigger engine came a user-friendlier gearbox and servo brakes. From September 1968 Series II E-Types were released worldwide. In addition to revised lighting and switchgear, the front air intake was larger and sat behind a full-width bumper.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This striking E-Type Coupe was produced at the Browns Lane famous Jaguar plant during the winter of 1969/1970. The new Jaguar was completed much as it appears today; a LHD Coupe for the US market, finished in Pale Primrose Yellow over a black leather interior. Once the new E-Type landed on US shores, the first owner was found in Great Falls Montana, where it was purchased from Midway Motors. The yellow E-Type would stay in this ownership for nearly 35 years.
Due to the extended period of single ownership, this E Type retains many of its original finished, and is presented in semi-survivor condition. The splendid Primrose yellow paint is believed to be roughly half original to the car, with necessary touch-ups occurring in areas. The bright work and chrome appears original throughout, and continues to shine very well to this day. Inside, the story remains the same; the original leather and trim shows a lovely patina, gauges are clear, and the switchgear has not been battered. Looking out, even the glass is original from the factory. A spare tire, factory tool kit, jack, books and Heritage Trust Certificate come included with the sale of this very original E-Type.

Like a well-worn baseball mitt, this Jaguar has the comfortable patina one would expect from such a long stint with one family, and is ready for many more years of service.
