1964 Jaguar E-type Series I 3. 8 Roadster Please  Read All

Motorcartrader. com. LLC is pleased to offer another nice Jaguar E-type.   This 1964 Jaguar E-type Series I 3. 8 Roadster was originally manufactured on November 12. 1963. This Jaguar was originally dispatched on November 27. of 1963 and the original owner was S. Benatooch of New York USA. The car presented was originally painted black with beige interior. This is a very rare color combination as only 164 cars Jaguar Series I 3. 8 e-types (Fixed Head Coupes and Roadsters) were produced in this color combination according to Mr. Clausager with Jaguar Archives and author of “Factory Original Jaguar E-type. "  The original color combination black with beige interior is one of the more desirable color combinations   and in our opinion the best looking color on a Jaguar E-type. This car was sitting for a while. but it does run and has 50 pounds of oil pressure at idle. As we can tell the brake system needs to be gone through with new brake calipers to get it driving. Also. a new clutch slave may have to be installed.   In addition. cosmetically it will need some body work at some point and paint of course (eventually)  as there are a few rust holes in the rockers (pictured below). but other than that. the body is solid with little evidence of any body filler.   The floors and underside of this car appear to be very solid as well.   Again. this car does not drive and the extent of the restoration required is certainly up to the next owner. This is a nice car to begin with and not your typical "old. rusty. tired and neglected" project car. All matching numbers car as per the Jaguar Heritage Certificate form Jaguar Archives (Numbers on block. head. body tag. transmission and front frame rail). Chassis Number: 880550 Engine Number: RA4270-9 Body Number: R7343 Gear Box Number: EB 12397 JS  

The interior looks all Original with Original radio (As of LHD OTS#879803 the console was changed from aluminum to leather).   The interior door handles and window crank handles  are not original. Strong engine which does run and has excellent compression of 150psi to 165psi on all cylinders. The car does run (does not drive) and has 50 pounds of oil pressure. A new gas tank has been installed. Original wiring and fuse panel looks new. Original floors are solid and in excellent condition. All switches and all lights are operational. Original tool kit included (partial. not full tool kit). Only 51. 09 miles which we believe is original.

Overall this is a good restorable or “smaller” project car. but how far the next owner intends to take this is completely up to them. It does not drive right now as it will need some addition work to do so. As we saw the brake system will need to be gone through and a new  slave may have to be installed. It may not be limited to just this. but what we saw as initially needing to be done. We buy and sell several Jaguar E-types. European and American Sports cars. so we do know the market well and know that the Jaguar Series I Roadster is among the most desirable of all Jaguars and classic sports cars. This is a great car to start with to bring it back to its former glory or to get driving to enjoy for a while. and/or eventually restore. If this does not sell. we are going to invest a little to make this a  driver as it is almost there. Once the car is a driver. the price will increase.
