Footnotes

  • Ever since its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1961, the Jaguar E-Type has made headlines around the world for not just its sheer beauty, but also its effortless performance. Its design has been described as perfect from every angle, and it harks back to an era long before safety regulation had an impact on car design. Its faired-in headlights, centred twin exhausts, independent rear suspension and all-round disc brakes were thought to be revolutionary features for a sports car at the time. With a price tag of just £2,250 (approximately £42,000 in today's money), the E-Type was also astonishingly good value, and as a result it was a great success for Jaguar.

    Presented is a rare opportunity to acquire an early 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I Fixed Head Coupe. Sold as a project, the car has been in storage for approximately 15-20 years and will require a full restoration. The mileage is remarkably low as a result, and the odometer shows just 13,816 miles. It's also reported to be moveable, and there is air in the tyres (the brakes are not seized). Sadly there is little history with the car bar its original buff logbook, however it comes from single ownership since 1971. It was originally finished in Gunmetal grey but was resprayed in the 1960s prior to the present vendors ownership to the current purple colour that you see today. Structurally the car is in good condition and is remarkably solid, however there is some rust appearing in places, such as on the NSR wheel arche and rear window surround. This is a matching numbers vehicle.
