THE JAGUAR E-TYPE

If Les Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans has been responsible for the new E-Type Jaguar, then that Homeric contest on the Sarthe circuit will have been abundantly justified. Here we have one of the quietest and most flexible cars on the market, capable of whispering along in top gear at 10mph or leaping into its 150mph stride on the brief depression of a pedal. A practical touring car, this, with its wide doors and capacious luggage space, yet it has a sheer beauty of line which easily beats the Italians at their own particular game.

There have been few better summaries of the E-Type's manifest virtues than the forgoing, penned by the inimitable John Bolster for Autosport shortly after the car's debut. Conceived and developed as an open sportscar, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in Coupé form. The car caused a sensation - spontaneous applause breaking out at the unveiling - with its instantly classic lines and a 140mph-plus top speed. The design owed much to that of the racing D-Type, a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3.8-liter, triple-carburetor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. Aerodynamically, the Coupé was superior to the Roadster and the better Grand Tourer, enjoying as it did a marginally higher top speed and the considerable convenience of a generously sized luggage platform accessed via the side-hinged rear door.

Its engine aside, only in terms of its transmission did the E-Type represent no significant advance over the XK150, whose durable four-speed Moss gearbox it retained. The latter was replaced when the 4.2-liter engine was introduced on the Series 1 in October 1964, a more user-friendly all-synchromesh gearbox and superior Lockheed brake servo forming part of the improved specification together with the bigger, torquier engine. Apart from '4.2' badging, the car's external appearance was unchanged, but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements, chiefly to the electrical and cooling systems, and to the seating arrangements. Top speed remained unchanged at around 150mph, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved flexibility.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed in the springtime 17th May 1966, this lovely Series 1 4.2 Liter Roadster was originally finished with a Cream exterior, Black top, and a Black leather interior. As noted on the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, Mr. G. Thornton, the original owner, decided to forego the typical ordering process and instead organized to pick up the vehicle at the factory for a personal export delivery. Presumably, this was done so Mr. Thornton could enjoy bumbling around the scenic lanes of the car's homeland before shipping the Jaguar to its new home in the United States.

Unfortunately, the grander history of this beautiful Series 1 is not known. Based on the current condition of the vehicle however, one can infer that it has received a restoration at some point, including a color change and that this has now aged somewhat. The bright Signal Red paint shows in good condition and the body appears straight with good shut lines. In addition, the interior presents well with fresh looking black leather adorning the seats. Most importantly, the original engine has remained with the car from the beginning with only the head being replaced by Jaguar sometime early in the roadster's life. Lastly, the car will be accompanied by its tire changing kit, tools, and the aforementioned JHTC.

A good driver quality Jaguar E type, ready for the summer months ahead.
