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

This beautiful example of the classic Series 1 E-Type Roadster was completed in the final year of the original, covered-headlight production run, thereby benefitting from the enlarged 4.2-Liter engine and fully synchronized transmission. Sold to its second owner in the late 1970s, this E-Type enjoyed long-term ownership with a family in Minnesota for more than 30 years. Restored during this ownership, this E-type went through a bare-metal repaint and all areas and items were completely gone through and addressed as needed. The exterior was finished in the period-correct Carmen Red color, while the interior was trimmed in black. A factory optional hard top was fitted as well, painted black to neatly contrast the red exterior. The work was done per original Jaguar specifications, however a few upgrades were carried out, including a stereo system with a new radio and speakers, as well as an upgraded cooling fan. This E-Type has had very limited mileage since the restoration as it was only driven as a pleasure vehicle in the summer, but always well cared for and maintained regardless of use.

This E-type was sold to its 3rd owner in 2009 and has been kept in lovely condition throughout. Fitted with air conditioning, this Jag is comfortable and dialed in for around-town cruising. One of the most iconic sports cars of all time, this E-type Roadster retains its original engine. Included with the sale of the car is an owner's manual, a period Jaguar routine maintenance poster, a Jaguar E-Type service manual and the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, as well as the desirable and rare, optional factory hard top.
