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. Achingly beautiful yet viciously quick. br/>the E-type remains for many the ultimate production Jaguar.

This lefthand drive 1961 Series I. 'Flat Floor'. E-type roadster
was supplied new in November 1961 to a Mr. E. M. Crissly of Atlanta
Georgia via the New York Jaguar Dealership. Mr. Crissly sold the
car after less than a year in 1962 to John Alexander. a resident in
San Antonio. From this point onwards the car would remain in
the warm climate of Texas until being repatriated to the UK in
2013. Mr Alexander kept the car for 20 years and the third owner. br/>Robert Carter of Houston. had the car for 31 years from 1982 to
2013. This history is validated by a Texas title document and the
Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Since arriving back in the UK. the car
has been treated to a ground up restoration by the Jaguar
Specialists. Fullbridge Restorations in Essex which included a bare
metal repaint in the car's original colour of Carmen red and all
new black trim. This Series I E-Type is supplied with a V5C
registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires in May
2016 and copies of the Heritage Certificate and Texas title. This
is an opportunity to purchase not only the most sought after E-type
model - the 3. 8 litre. 'flat floor' - but one which has been
beautifully restored to the original
specification.
