Introduced in 3. 8 litre form in 1961. the Jaguar E-Type caused a
sensation when it appeared with instantly classic lines and 150mph
top speed. While. inevitably. the car's stupendous straight-line
performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines. there was a
lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The newcomer's design owed
much to that of the racing D-Type and. indeed. the E-Type would be
one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a
successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type. a monocoque
tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a tubular
spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was
the same 3. 8-litre. triple-carburettor. 'S' unit first offered as
an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on
tap. the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly. because
it weighed around 500lb less than the XK150. and secondly because
aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type
to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to
grace a motor car.

This lefthand drive Series I was imported to the UK from Ottawa
at the beginning of 2014 when it was stripped down ready for
re-painting. At the same time. the engine and gearbox were removed
and when the rebuild started. the opportunity was taken to replace
the clutch assembly. replace the gearbox seals and fit a new clutch
slave cylinder. The car still has its original 3. 8 litre cylinder
block but has been fitted with a later 4. 2 litre cylinder head.
Before refitting to the E-Type. a number of other items were
checked and restored. This included rebuilding the braking system. br/>supplying and fitting a 'spin-on' oil filter. overhauling the
prop-shaft and fitting a new exhaust system. Finished in Signal Red
with black interior. this exceptional example is supplied with the
paperwork for registration in the UK including an MoT test
certificate which expires in January 2016 and the Ottawa
registration document. Also with the car is a file of invoices
which show the works carried out in the UK during 2014. This icon
from the 1960s is regarded as one of the most beautiful cars ever
built and is one of the most useable investments in the world; not
only as part of a car collection. but for use at rallies and
special events.
