The Jaguar E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975 to
create a combination of good looks. high performance and
competitive pricing. Established as an icon of 1960's motoring and
a great success for Jaguar. more than 70. 00 E-Types were sold
during its lifespan. The Series I was introduced. initially for
export only. in March 1961. with the domestic market launch coming
four months later. in July of that year. The cars at this time used
the triple SU carburetted. 3. 8-Litre six cylinder XK engine from
the XK150's. The first 300 cars built had flat floors and external
bonnet latches and are considered to be rare and more valuable.
After that. the floors were dished to provide more leg room and the
bonnet latches moved inside the car. whilst underneath the hood. br/>the engine size increased to 4. 2-Litres in October 1964.

It is not often we have the opportunity to auction true survivor
cars with the current way of thinking to restore and retro fit our
most beautiful classics. but in this instance. we have an example
of a truly original Series I. 3. 8 Roadster. Still showing the
original body tags in the boot. axle diff. gearbox casing. gearbox
top cover and engine block and even the original crayon marks on
the bulkhead. this fully matching numbers example. with wiper motor
date coded. is a real collector's item. Offered in Opalescent
Golden Sand with upgraded biscuit leather. the car was first
purchased by prominent businessman. Mr. E. D. Benedetti in February
1964 from Jaguar Cars. New York. Mr Benedetti owned the car until
1987 when it was purchased by Mr F. Diangelis Jr. of New Jersey.
The vehicle resided with Mr. Diangelis until 2010. when it was
imported in to the UK by its enthusiastic current owner. When the
vendor had spotted the car in the summer of 2009. it was clear it
had been virtually unused for. we believe. 25 years and frankly
unloved. despite having been held in the same collection for some
13 years. The clutch had completely ceased. which looking at the
mileage would make mechanical sense for that time as at 50. 00 -
60. 00kms. they are due to be replaced and the car appeared to have
been parked up since that time. Thankfully. he seized the
opportunity and decided to repatriate the E-type by undertaking a
re-commissioning. allowing him to own. revive and enjoy the car

The changes involved in the re-commissioning were reasonably
extensive and included front and rear brakes. a new clutch. a head
gasket- completed just 500 miles ago. extensive rebuild of the
original SU carburettors and new exhaust. All of these works are
supported by numerous bills housed within a comprehensive history
file which also includes a very rare. original E-Type Operating. br/>Maintenance and Service Handbook. original jack. hammer and hood
bag. The current owner has always resisted the temptation to
restore this roadster and. instead. enjoys receiving far more
attention at Goodwood meets than 'run-of-the-mill' E-Types. The
owner's hope is that it will remain an original car but with the
current values achieved for restored examples. what would you do
with this great example of a true driver's car?
