We are proud to present. what is quite possibly. the best
example of a Series I Jaguar E-Type Open Top Sports (OTS).
According to the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate. the E-Type was
manufactured on 9th September 1965 and dispatched to the USA on
17th September 1965 to be distributed by Jaguar Cars. New York. The
first owner is recorded as a Lawrence Powers. Being manufactured in
1965. this Jaguar has the advantage over the earlier Series One
cars in that it sports the modified floors (rather than the earlier
flat floor) thus allowing more space for the occupants and in
particular. taller people. a larger 4. 2 litre engine and an all
synchromesh gearbox. The later Series One E-Types are
considered a better drive and overall package by the Jaguar

In the late 1990's. the Jaguar was discovered and purchased without
the engine and gearbox; it subsequently underwent complete and
extensive works to restore it to the 1965 specification. This
included a completely rebuilt body shell. 4. 2 litre engine and all
synchromesh 4 speed gearbox. A new owner took possession of
the OTS in 2002 whereafter full detailing works were undertaken.
The E-Type was entered into the Chicago. Jaguar Clubs of North
America. Concours where it took first place. The 'Official Concours
d'Elegance Score Sheet' for the event dated 9th August 2003 marked
the car with a score of 99. 3%; a supreme result in a hard contested
event. Three major deductions recorded over the two events were a
non-original radio. non-original hose clamps and no front licence
plate. Such was the determination of the owner. that those
three items were all upgraded with original parts and further
detailing work carried out to address the other minor deductions
noted by the judges.

Further works and improvements have also been carried out since. In
2012 the Jaguar was fitted with a new coolant header tank. hoses. br/>fan belt and thermostat and in 2013. new wire wheels with stainless
steel spokes. a stainless steel exhaust system. new clutch
hydraulics and brake master system were added. The car is
driven on the road with ceramic coated exhaust manifolds (headers)
fitted. as they deal with heat and moisture better than porcelain
manifolds; however. a second set of show quality exhaust manifolds
in black porcelain stored within a bespoke wooden box are included
and were only fitted for display purposes.

We are advised that since the restoration. this example has been
kept within a heated and dehumidified garage and has not been
driven in any inclement weather. This certainly is apparent from
viewing the undersides which are as exemplary as the topsides. The
quality of the sundry items match the car perfectly; these include
a full original tool kit. wheel spinner copper/hide hammer. jack
and manual. The detail finishes of each of these items are a
sight to behold.

The Carmen red coachwork. sitting on wire wheels. is resplendent
and complemented by the beautiful Biscuit Connolly leather with
Hartz cloth. Imported into the United Kingdom in 2013. this Open
Top Sport E-Type has the import duties paid. an MoT test
certificate valid until 13th January 2015 and is fully UK
registered. This very special Jaguar really does have to be
seen to be appreciated as in our opinion. the photographs can never
do her the justice she deserves. With Series I open top E-Types
fetching stratospheric prices. this exemplary example must
represent excellent value given the estimate; surely an opportunity
not to be missed for the serious collector.
