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

In November of 1970 Jaguar delivered this E-Type to their U.S. counterpart British Leyland, New York guised in Silver paint and with a black interior and a black top, as verified by its Heritage certificate. Little is known at present about the interim history of the car, but in 2014-15 it was subject to an extensive restoration by Werke Classic Center in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. During the restoration, the Jag was finished in its current color scheme of black over red leather. The thorough work completed is documented in both receipts and photos on file included with the car.

Acquired by the current owner in 2018, it has been sparingly used, driven only about 200 miles in the last three years, and kept in a climate controlled garage. The car is presented with the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, owner's manual, jack, and aforementioned restoration records. With good looks and preparation this is an eminently usable XKE ideal for your next tour.
