Built on New Year’s Eve 1965 and dispatched from Browns Lane 18 days later, this Jaguar E-Type was destined for a life in the USA. For its fortunate new owner this E-Type would have represented the very best way to start 1966.

A matching numbers example of the later 4.2-litre Series 1 E-Type, this car featured a number of desirable revisions over the earlier 3.8-litre offering. An all-synchro gearbox significantly improved the driving experience, especially with more torque available from the larger engine, while the bench-style seats provided greater comfort.

With a full and professional restoration having just been completed to factory specifications, and only road testing miles driven since, this eye catching Black Coupe is now ready for concours lawns and enjoying straight away.

As a sister company of Eagle E-Types, Historic Classics is able to offer the next owner the exclusive opportunity to incorporate some subtle reliability upgrades and ensure that you can drive to shows & events with confidence and in enviable style. In that instance, we feel that this Coupe would truly offer the perfect combination of purity and enhanced usability.
