THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at Jaguar's Browns Lane works on May 21st, 1964, this lovely Series I 3.8-Liter Roadster was originally finished in black, with matching black soft top, and an elegantly contrasting red leather interior - just as it appears today. As noted on the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, the factory left hand drive configured E-Type Roadster was dispatched from the Jaguar facilities on June 1st, 1964 destined for the booming North American sportscar market, where Ms. Julia Hacken of Beverly Hills, California became the first owner. Little known history exists for the subsequent two score of years, but during that time the car was restored – likely in the 1980s – in a burgundy over black leather color scheme and was in California in the early 2000s before the current owner acquired it from Missouri in August of 2006.

A British car enthusiast with a garage that included stable mates from Aston Martin and MG, the Jag was in good company next to the award winning '69 Series II E-Type already in one of the bays. Originally intending to make the Series I a fine driver, as the project started it became clear that it was either go-big-or-go-home and the decision was made to go for gold and restore the Roadster to concours and Jaguar club winning standards. Having done this once before with the Series II, the exciting new project presented new challenges but not insurmountable ones.

Restoration work on the car was farmed out to the best of the best. Greg Bonanni's Classic Car Restoration, the shop that had restored the owner's Series II to show winning standards, was entrusted with body work and paint. The engine was sent to Coventry West in Lithonia, Georgia for a full rebuild while the transmission went to Point Transmission in St. Clair Shores, Michigan for its own full refurbishment. Finally, the interior was completed by Original Specification Jaguar Interiors (OSJI) in Muncie, Indiana. Any other minor work was sent to the necessary specialty shops. A 'build book' with before and after photos, documentation, and receipts details the work carried out.

The completed car, returned to its original specifications, was finished in the fall of 2007 and debuted at the September 8, 2007 Jaguar Affiliates of Michigan Concours where it placed second in class with a score of 9.984 out of 10. While second place is good, it means of all the losers, you've come in first, so the car was tweaked to perfection under the supervision of Jaguar specialist and Jaguar Club of North America Series I National Championship Builder, Matt Nold, in preparation for the 2008 concours season. Campaigned throughout the JCNA regions, the Roadster achieved the 2008 National Championship for class DO2 with a score of 9.99 out of 10. Additionally, the car found favor outside the Jaguar clique winning the coveted Ruscilli Trophy at the 2008 Columbus Ohio Car Show and later an invitation to be displayed at the prestigious Concours of Americas at St. John in 2011. Having proved itself sufficiently, the car was shown sparingly for the next three years before being garaged from 2014 onward.

Coming out of retirement briefly in 2017 to be shown at a JCNA Florida event, it handily swept the competition and won its classes with its then decade old restoration. Since then, the car has been sparingly driven and carefully maintained by its doting owner who has endeavored to make the car run as well as it looks with the inclusion of a distributor and points improvement to an electronic system and an upgraded in-tank fuel pump.

Presented today in lovely condition with a beautifully maintained restoration, the car will be accompanied by a Series I workshop manual, Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, and a Build Book including restoration photos and receipts, JCNA scoring sheets, JCNA trophies, and photos from various concours. Expertly restored E-Types, like the one presented here, are highly sought after by collectors all around the world. With the vehicle on offer being in such fine condition, there is no better opportunity to put yourself behind the wheel of one of the most iconic sports cars of the 20th Century.
