For sale by auction on Saturday 30 August 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. 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 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 Moss gearbox. it
reputedly enabled the E-Type to sprint from 0-60mph in 6. 9 seconds
and on to 150mph. Achingly beautiful yet viciously quick. the
E-type remains for many the ultimate production Jaguar.

This 4. 2 litre. Series I. lefthand drive fixed coupé was
manufactured in 1968 and we are lead to believe spent the vast
majority of its life in California before being moved to New York
prior to a return to the UK. The Primrose yellow coachwork is
in very good order having been re-sprayed at an earlier date as is
the black interior. which we believe to be original. and the chrome
work.
The vendor informs us that he has recently dropped the rear sub
frame in order to recondition the rear brakes and that the floor
pans all appear to be totally original even showing signs of the
original factory yellow paint. he believes any inspection will
confirm the quality of this lovely original Jaguar and having been
driven through the East Sussex countryside upon consignment. we are
sure the new owner would not be disappointed.
Supplied with a V5 registration document. import documentation. br/>valid road fund license and a MoT test certificate valid until
April 2015 and offered at an attractive estimate could this be an
ideal route into fabulous E-Type ownership. especially with ever
climbing values rendering Series I E-types an appreciating
asset.
