Description

Most people will agree if we say that the Coupé (or FHC) version of the E-Type Series 1 is one of the most beautiful automotive designs ever made. It is unbelievable that the design of this iconic car was conceived in two weeks, and that sir William Lyons was not very sure that it would appeal to the typical Jaguar customer. It's 55 years later now, and the E-Type is a styling icon and exposed in several important museums as a piece of art.

This example is finished in the great colour combination of Opalescent Silver Grey with black hide interior. This colour suits an E-Type very well, and shows the stunning lines perfectly. This E-Type was delivered new in sunny California, and sold 4 years ago to England as a rustfree and extremely sound restoration project. The car was then completely restored in the UK, and supplied to the actual owner by JD Classics. The quality of the restoration is from a very high level, and this E-Type runs as well as it looks. The powerful 4,2 Litre straight six engine produces a glorious sound, and the full synchronized gearbox is a pleasure to use. It's a car perfectly suited for a trip to the South of France, where you will arrive in style and with a big smile on your face.

So if you are dreaming of a great Series 1 E-Type, we can only advise to book a fascinating test drive with this very nice Jaguar : you won't be disappointed.
