On its Geneva Show debut in March 1961 the Jaguar E Type caused a sensation, with all the promise of its looks confirmed by a 150mph top speed and 0-60 and 0-100mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively, fast indeed, and combined with superb road holding and remarkable docility. In October 1964 it was superseded by the 4.2 litre model, apart from the capacity increase from 3,781cc to 4,235cc and improved torque but the same power, it boasted a new all synchromesh gearbox, improved brake servo and seats, an alternator and the dashboard was now leather faced rather than aluminium dashboard.

This genuine right-hand drive Series 1 roadster rolled off the Jaguar production line on the 13th January 1966 and was delivered to Henlys of London on 20th January. In
