1963 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 liter cabriolet

The convertible E Type 4.2 litre that we offer was purchased in 2009 by previous owner, to a professional who specializes in cars of this category in the region of Bordeaux. The meter then showed 34,707 miles, or 55,854km. The car came from California, where it must have seen cast happy days in a very suitable climate, before receiving a complete restoration that has given the car mechanical reliability. Its owner says that its recent consumption of oil did not exceed even one liter per 2,500km, of which at least 1,500km was on mountain roads. For four years, the car received detailed improvements such as the replacement of the rubber seals (for the headlights, the doors, the bumper) and boot struts. Bills are there to attest to all this. The car has its kit tools, spare wheel with chrome spokes and the counter currently displays 36,315 miles or 58,442km. In a very elegant light blue, the car is equipped with navy blue upholstery complemented by a dark blue hood. It is also equipped with a removable hard-top in ivory shade, perfect for the winter months. In beautiful condition this is a very desirable Series 1.
