1965 CONCOURS STANDARD S1 ETYPE For Sale

"The most beautiful car ever made" - Enzo Ferrari was quoted as saying on the release of the Jaguar E-Type Series 1 in March 1961. Still to this day it receives the accolades recently being ranked first in The Daily Telegraph online list of the world's "100 most beautiful cars" of all time.

The earliest E-Types were produced from 1961-1964 using a 3.8L engine which was later upgraded to a 4.2L. The series 1 4.2L has become the most desirable version of the famous E-Type due to the increased power and usability while retaining the same outward appearance of the first cars.

Our breathtaking example is a 1965 Jaguar Series 1 4.2L RHD which has been professionally restored one piece at a time by C L Classics to it’s original stunning colour combination of "opalescent silver blue" with dark blue interior. A true “barn find” that has undergone a full nut & bolt restoration over a 3 year period and only recently unveiled for the first time at the London Classic Car Show at ExCel in March.

It now sits as perfect as the day it left the factory on the 31st of August 1965 and what's particularly interesting about this specific car's heritage is that it was fitted with a slave engine, the newer 4.2L made for the 2+2 model which was due to be realeased just a few days later and it remains in the vehicle today. Jaguar Heritage has provided a record trace on the vehicle history confirming this with a certification of authenticity. It is only speculation as to why but it's believed this car may have been used to test Jaguar's new engine, however, it's also quit possible that they simply ran out of the old engines on the production line so fitted a new one.

This represents a truly rare opportunity to acquire a concours standard example of one of the most beautiful cars ever produced lovingly restored to the original factory build with only the exception of a modernised radiator fan assembly which is a must. No expense has been spared with the reassembly which included the engine, gearbox, rear differential and suspension units all being completely rebuilt. The body was taken back to bear metal & painstakingly reassembled re-frabricating new panels where required, new engine frames, picture frame & the bonnet hanger replaced. It didn't stop there with new wiring looms, petrol tank, stainless steel exhaust system, a completely refurbished dash panel with a new steering wheel & radio tuner.
