1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 FHC RHD For Sale

A highly desirable, original UK delivered, early Series 1 3.8 fixed head coupe Jaguar E-Type. Just one of only 150 flat floor examples built in right-hand drive and the 80th Series 1 off the production line in 1961. Built December 1961 and delivered to Hatfields Jaguar, finished in Opalescent Silver Grey with Red interior, later registered in January 1962. The car is accompanied by an extensive history file with countless servicing, parts and work invoice alongside MOT certificates dated as far back as 1970. Included with this early example is the original log book, highlighting the first recorded owner as a Mr D Alan, Sevenoaks in 1975. After a brief ownership until July 1976, a Mr and Mrs Hammerman, Essex purchased the car and continued to love and maintain the classic Jaguar for the following 5 years. It was in 1981 that the E-Type entered its longest period of ownership under a Mr Peter Fox, where the car remained well looked after and closely maintained for little over a decade. During this time the Series 1’s entered its first major nut and bolt restoration, finishing the car in Red with a Beige interior. The car's restoration was heavily documented in numerous full photo albums. Well known Jaguar Club Enthusiasts and the cars biggest history folder contributor, Raymond and Barbara Guiver acquired the E-Type in 1993. Members of the JEC Southampton Region and Jaguar perfectionists, the Guiver’s immediately set out to restore the car to its original 1961 factory glory. The husband and wife team set out on the E-Type’s second restoration early 1994 with a very hands-on approach, completing a large majority of manual jobs themselves. The completed job included: -Bare metal respray -New boot floor, door skins and inner sills -Bonnet re-fitted -Front Cooper craft brakes fitted -Kenlow fan fitted -Interior restored to factory Red -Exterior finished in factory Opalescent Silver Grey. The Guiver’s documented every step in a photographic archive which highlights a thorough and extensive restoration. Alongside completing this high-quality restoration, the Guiver’s also toured “Elsa the leaping cat”, nicknamed by the couple, to countless events across the country. This beautifully restored E-Type attracted constant attention and within the following 8 years the car attended 22 major events & was invited as a special guest to prestigious venues some that include: The Jaguar Tour of America 1998. Gardian RAC Classic Rally1998 Jaguar S-Type Goodwood Launch 1999. Victory Rally Portsmouth 1999 Le Mans 24hr 2000 The history file documents several other event participation, newspaper articles, features and photographs from the E-Types travels, a terrific read for any Jaguar enthusiast. When it came to sell the E-Type, it landed in the hands of a Mr P. Horridge of Cheshire, who held the same originality values and love for the car as its previous owner. Mr Horridge upheld the cars high level of maintenance for this stunning example and the Jaguar remained in Horridge’s ownership for the following 10 years. After Mr Horridge the Series 1 only had two other owners which includes the current owner, having purchased the car in January 2015 and commissioned a full engine, gearbox and rear axle overhaul. This well toured and loved E-Type now sits finished in factory Opalescent Grey with retrimmed red interior and runs seamlessly. With its countless restorations, this early Series 1 is shown in excellent condition throughout. Having been returned to its factory finish and presented with full matching numbers, this is a rare and desirable example with great usability and ready to be cherished. The restored red interior offers a classic and genuine E-Type feel, boasting a spotless black dash with clean gauges and dials. While hidden under the bonnet is a well-kept and a smooth-running rebuilt Jaguar 3.8 engine. The E-Type has been fitted with a hand full of modern upgrades that make offer an exciting but reliable drive.
