A beautiful UK RHD Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 FHC with matching numbers.

Steel body of monocoque construction, triple blade two-speed windscreen wipers, sealed beam asymmetric headlights, single reversing light, 160mph speedometer, revolution counter, ammeter, water and oil pressure gauge, fuel light, electronic clock, map reading lamp, panel light switch, starter switch, heated rear window, hinged rear quarter windows, cigar lighter, brake fluid/handbrake warning light, air and temperature control, recessed choke, adjustable steering wheel, padded screen rail. Options: Radiomobile with twin speakers.

Costing more than the Open Two-Seater when new, the Series One Jaguar E-Type Coupe is stunning from any angle especially when finished in Opalescent Silver Blue as this example. The amazing chrome has a mirror finish and low drag characteristics are helped by desirable Series One features such as glass headlight covers, quarter bumpers and small front air mouth. Favoured by Jaguar enthusiasts worldwide, the tail lights above the bumper and the badge on the boot proclaiming "Jaguar 4.2 Litre E-Type” are key attributes. Restored in 1993 from Golden Sand this example maintains an attractive appearance thanks to a pampered, no expense spared mentality to the upkeep and storage with only one tiny mark to the rear barely worthy of a mention. The underside and wheel apertures are free from excess underseal and help reveal the excellent structural integrity of this machine. As Enzo Anselmo Ferrari called it, "the most beautiful car ever made"

Superlative qualities will be enjoyed from the cockpit of this luxurious and iconic sports car. Thickly padded bucket seats upholstered in finest quality Dark Blue Vaumol leather over deep Dunlopillo cushions only found on grand marques and deep pile carpeting over thick underlay are beautiful Jaguar traits. The carpets have been protected by Jaguar rubber floor mats. The Labelled toggled switches found on the early Series One cars are preferred by most rather than the black plastic rocker switches and all function. All Smiths gauges give healthy readings and purists will enjoy original features such as the chrome Lucas rear view mirror three-spoke lightweight alloy steering wheel with wood rim proudly displaying the growler badge. Incredibly special, opulent and a real automotive indulgence.

This is a matching numbers vehicle with the factory supplied engine still fitted. The six cylinder 4.2 litre XK engine with twin overhead camshafts and three S.U carburetters produces 265bhp and performs impeccably with silky smooth power delivery thanks to expert maintenance and care. The engine bay is very clean and the chassis number can still be seen stamped in the correct location. Some modern additions such as a high torque starter, spin on oil filter kit, Kenlowe fan and full electronic ignition while still retaining the original distributor are fitted. The four speed manual gearbox with synchromesh on all gears is light and a joy to use.

Stunning 15inch wire spoke wheels with centre lock hubs are immaculate and shod in period design expensive Blockley 185/R15 tyres with ample tread. Servo assisted disc brakes all round with independent hydraulic circuits front and rear stop the car safely.

A Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate numbered 29164 confirms this vehicle as being a genuine Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 Litre fixed head coupe right hand drive with matching numbers. It was manufactured on the 23rd November 1965 and dispatched on the 7th December 1965. The original distributor was Henlys Limited, Manchester who sold the car to a Mr Arnold Flintshire. Restored in 1993 and enthusiast owned since with the current devoted custodian, Mr Peter Charles Taylor a retired RAF Wing Commander having owned the car since March 2008. A comprehensive history file since the restoration includes all invoices by trusted Jaguar specialists, photos of works carried out and even a Driver Log detailing all works carried out on what date and at what mileage. Two A4 folders of history are included along with an operating maintenance and service handbook and two keys.

This example is a true spectacle with unrivalled looks and a Great British classic icon.

MOT February 2019, HPI Clear.
