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. The civilized production sports car 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 a bigger engine, came an upgraded gearbox and servo brakes. From September 1968, Series II E-Types—incorporating safety upgrades previously fitted only in America—were released worldwide.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This lovely Jaguar was completed on October 30, 1968, as a left-hand drive American market version of the Series II E-Type and was dispatched three weeks later to Jaguar Cars of New York. Other than the first owner, Richard Bennett, initial provenance is not well-documented. Although, we do know that in February 2015, the consignor discovered the aging, yet preserved car, and purchased it with the intent to orchestrate a full rotisserie restoration.

Over a three-year period, the car was completely stripped back to bare metal, the frame rails were powder-coated, while the body was finished in Jaguar Dark Blue (JA 013). The engine underwent a rebuild, including carburetors, distributor, alternator and starter, and the radiator was re-cored. The E-Type received all new rubber components, and the chrome spoke wheels were dressed in new period-style red-line radial tires. The suspension, transmission, brakes and rear end were rebuilt as well. Chrome surfaces and trims were refinished or replaced, and the instruments rebuilt and recalibrated to concours standard by the renowned Nisonger Instruments. The delightful Dark Blue Series II was then graced with a complete interior, crafted by award winning Baron Upholstery and finished with superb new red leather seats. A prime example in every respect, and fresh from a show-standard restoration, this XKE Series II 4.2-liter Jaguar is ideal for events and rallies and is bound to delight, with its eager performance and eye-candy appeal.
