For sale by auction on Saturday 07 June 2014 with Historics at Brooklands. Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. Weybridge. Surrey. Call 01753 639170
Launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show. the Jaguar E-Type was
nothing short of a revelation. With its heady blend of supercar
performance. breathtaking styling and low price tag. the newcomer
left rivals reeling and customers clamouring. While early sportscar
racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori
amongst others helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque
with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine. the model's
combination of all-round independent suspension (torsion-bar
front/coil-sprung rear) rack and pinion steering and four-wheel
disc brakes gave it excellent road holding and handling
capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a
'straight port' DOHC cylinder head. its indomitable 3781cc
straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and
260lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed gearbox. it reputedly
enabled the E-type to sprint from 0-60mph in 6. 9 seconds and onto
150mph. Achingly beautiful yet viciously quick. the E-type remains
for many the ultimate production Jaguar.

Manufactured on 31st January 1962 and despatched to Henlys of
London on 16th February 1962. this 3. 8 litre E-Type is a project
with a difference. The vendor is a classic car enthusiast but. br/>unfortunately has run out of time and space. making it difficult to
complete this restoration project. The car has been completely
stripped. bodywork attended to and repainted in the original colour
of opalescent dark green. The bare shell is on a stand and able to
be manoeuvred with care.
The rear subframe. engine. gearbox. interior trim. wiring loom. br/>glass etc are all removed from the car. although everything is
supplied and thought to be present. Obviously. if a purchaser chose
to take the opportunity to rebuild the car mechanically. this would
be the easiest and most cost effective way to do so. Jaguar E-Type
Series I roadsters are in huge demand of late and this early
example offers the purchaser the opportunity to complete the car to
his/her own standard. This Jaguar is also supplied with a V5
registration document and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
