Like blue-chip stocks or early Picassos. certain cars remain constant in the face of fickle markets and changing collector tastes. And while Ferraris command the high six-. seven-. and even eight-figure market. Jaguar E-Types rule the more earthbound segment. Few cars of its period—from 1961 to 1975—are as gratifying to drive. and certainly none are more beautiful. For any devotee who enjoys the view from the driver’s seat—looking down the mile-long hood—or appreciates its curvaceous profile on a concours lawn. the E-Type remains a watershed design in the history of the sports car. As classic as a blue blazer. it will never go out of style.   - See more at: http://robbreport. com/paid-issue/stray-cats#sthash. Gal9Ubm4. dpuf

Welcome to Crave Luxury Auto. one of the nation's premier marketers of high-line and luxury automobile dealers.   The winner of this auction will have the opportunity to own this beautiful 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Convertible.  The paint is in excellent condition. The interior is virtually flawless. 45. 71 miles. You can't go wrong with this fabulous vehicle and blue -chip investment!  

265 bhp. 4. 35 cc DOHC inline six-cylinder engine with triple SU carburetors. four-speed manual transmission with full synchromesh. independent front suspension with transverse wishbones. torsion bars. telescopic shocks. and an anti-roll bar. independent rear suspension with lower transverse tubular links and twin coil springs. and four-wheel Dunlop twin-circuit hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 96 in.

Jaguar had enjoyed great success with its XK series of sports cars. but the E-Type was not. as might have been expected. a continuation of the XK150. Instead. the XKE (as it was dubbed in the U. S. ) was based largely upon a pair of prototype racing cars. E1A and E2A. which themselves borrowed heavily from the very successful monocoque-bodied D-Type racing chassis. In fact. E2A was the intended replacement for the D. Following earlier precedent. there would be two versions of the new E-Type. an open two-seater. or roadster. and a fixed head coupe. both with sleek and curvaceous bodies designed by Malcolm Sayer. a pioneer in automotive aerodynamics.

Under the E-Type’s broad front-hinged bonnet was essentially the same 3. 8-liter twin-cam inline six as in its predecessors. producing 265 brake horsepower. The gearbox was a four-speed manual without synchronization on the first gear (known as the “Moss” box). Suspension. though. was thoroughly modern—independent all around. There were powerful four-wheel disc brakes. inboard at the rear to reduce un-sprung weight. Performance was astonishing. especially for its price. The E-Type had real 150-mph capability. The first examples did have some minor “flaws. rdquo; many of which were rectified in 1964 with a larger and more robust engine of 4. 2 liters. Though it still offered the same 265 brake horsepower. it came with greatly increased mid-range torque: 283 foot-pounds versus the 3. 8’s 240 foot-pounds. More importantly. though. was the introduction of a new. fully synchronized transmission with a new Laycock diaphragm clutch. Engine cooling was also revised. and there was a new alternator to replace the generator. The brakes were improved. with better power-assist. and the seatbacks were now adjustable.

The Jaguar offered here is a magnificent example of one of the most sought-after versions of the E-Type. the Series 1 4. 2-Litre from 1965. It is presented in its original colors of Carmen Red over a tan leather interior. and of course. it sports chrome wire wheels. This E-Type offers the above-mentioned mechanical improvements but retains the original design’s most appealing stylistic features. such as covered headlights. a small grille opening. turn signal lights and taillights above the delicate horizontal blade bumpers. and exhaust tips that protrude under the number plate in the rear.

The consignor notes that Lance Pittack purchased this car from Raymond Ray. owner of Concours Jaguar Restoration in Gilbertsville. Pennsylvania. about 17 years ago in restored condition. Mr. Pittack. a well-known collector in Omaha. Nebraska. enjoyed the car for several years but decided to further enhance it to true show-condition in the early 2000s. His restoration specialists installed a new bonnet. rectified a few remaining small issues in the body. and ultimately repainted the car as it is finished today. The interior was left as-is. as it did not need any work at the time.
