Chassis No. 1E13274

Engine No. 7E9292-9

Jaguar's E-Type dominated automotive news when it was revealed at the 1961 Geneva Auto Show. The new, sleek form was derived from the racing D-Type and its 265 hp, double-overhead camshaft 3.8-liter engine, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes completed a package that rivaled the world's very best sports cars marques.

For 1965, the E-Type's engine was enlarged to 4.2-liters, an all-synchro gearbox was fitted, with many detail changes, including more comfortable bucket seats, and updates to the electrical system, switching from positive to negative ground and the addition of a Lucas generator. The horsepower rating remained 265 hp, but torque crept up to 284 foot-pounds. The 0-60 time was virtually unchanged at a blisteringly-fast time for its era of seven seconds, with a top speed of up to 153 mph.

According to the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, this beautiful open E-Type seater was shipped from Jaguar's Browns Lane factory destined for Jaguar Cars of New York on 11 August 1966. A left-hand drive model, it was finished in Cream with a black soft-top and black Connolly leather interior.

This E-Type Roadster shows just over 30,000 miles, which are believed to be original to the car. At 29,865 miles, marque experts Jaguar Connection of Allentown, Pennsylvania commenced a partial restoration with the initial evaluation revealing, "an extremely solid, straight body with excellent fit." Jaguar Connection then proceeded to disassemble most of the engine bay and cleaned, polished, and painted all the assemblies to a very high standard. In addition most of the auxiliary components of the engine were rebuilt including the carburetors, distributor, water pump, and fuel pump with new fluids and filters. According to the summary of work, extensive time was spent tuning once reassembled. The Pennsylvania company is also understood to have resprayed the rare, optional hardtop, rebuilding it with new seals.

With only a few hundred miles on the odometer since this sympathetic restoration, and with a recent service, the consignor delights in describing this superb E-Type as remaining in "superb condition, aesthetically and mechanically." Finished in its original colors of Cream over black leather it still looks extremely period-correct with its working Blaupunkt radio, matching body color factory hardtop, and whitewall tires. Series 1 E-Types are noted as being among most collectable and enjoyable to drive - especially with the fully synchronized four-speed transmission. It is now time for someone to enjoy this highly-original and well-equipped roadster top on or off. It includes a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, owner's manual, spare tire, knock-off hammer, jack, and a boot cover.
