This Jaguar E-Type Coupe Series 1 3.8L came out of the chains on September 16, 1963. It was then cream and had a red interior. It was delivered by the Jaguar dealership in New York on October 21, 1963, already equipped with a webasto sunroof perfectly laid. In 1985, the Jaguar E was repainted in British racing green and the cabin was redone in beige. Always stored in a garage, the car was then refitted in 1989. It was recently restarted in the state of the art with an overhaul of the car. Its bodywork was very good, like its cockpit, the whole did not require any work and its presentation is excellent, including adjustments. Today, the car has matching numbers between its box, engine, chassis and body, all confirmed by Jaguar Heritage. It displays 60,000 miles on the clock and its engine works very well, something confirmed by very good compression rates. This is a very nice copy of the most beautiful coupé in the world, having had only two owners and a history without a hitch, but above all, it is the 3.8L version, in other words, the most sought after, especially for its bucket seats so special!
