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, 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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

According to this E-Type's Heritage Trust Certificate, it was built at the Browns Lane Jaguar Works on September 11, 1969. Denoted as a left hand drive Series II Fixed Head Coupe, the E-Type was finished in Signal Red over black interior trim, and fitted with a manual transmission. A US market example, the E-Type made its way to the British Leyland distributor in New York, where it would be sold to its first owner.

Although the Jaguar's early history remains unknown, the car is confirmed to have been in singular ownership from the 1980s until purchased by the consignor. A comprehensive restoration was carried out in 2010, where the cars factory-correct Signal Red exterior was professionally redone, and the car's mechanical systems were refurbished. It should be noted that at some point in time, presumably before the 1980s, the cars engine was replaced with a correct, 4.2-liter unit.

This striking E-Type is offered with books and tools, and the odometer reading of just over 83,000 miles is believed to be the car's actual mileage since new. In beautiful condition inside and out, this Jaguar presents as an excellent example of the late 6-cylinder E-Type Coupe, a model that looks like a great bargain today compared to its Series I predecessors.
