1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe For Sale

The E-Type Jaguar debuted at the 1961 Geneva Motorshow as a replacement for the hugely successful Jaguar XK150. The new E-Type was nothing short of a revelation, with its heady blend of supercar performance, breath-taking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left its rivals reeling and customers desperate to own one. Designed by William Lyons and Malcolm Sayer, the E-Type was launched in 1961 in both fixed head coupe and roadster form with design inspiration taken from the Le-Mans winning D-Type sports racer. Built around a steel monocoque chassis with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, all-round independent suspension using coil springs and dampers to the rear with torsion bars and wishbones to the front. Brakes were Dunlop discs all round, mounted inboard to the rear alongside the differential to reduce un-sprung weight. Powered by Jaguar’s XK 4.2 litre twin-cam straight six engine, the E-Type offered breathtaking performance to rival both Ferrari and Aston Martin

The Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe (chassis number 1E 20580) offered here at Autostorico is finished in British Racing Green with Black leather interior with White piping. This original UK example was supplied by Henlys of London to its first owner Mr B Best on 6th November 1965. The car passed to its third owner, Mr Schofield of Rochdale, in 1985 who kept the car until 2009 when it was purchased by its fourth owner Mr Penson of Eastleigh. Mr Penson then undertook a no expense spared restoration which included removing the engine and gearbox and stripping the whole body, at this point new sills and floors were fitted before a bare metal respray was undertaken. The car was also subject to a full mechanical overhaul including engine, gearbox, and suspension rebuild. Other notable works included overhauling the braking system, re-wire, new MWS chrome wire wheels with Blockley tyres, Interior re-trim and bright work. This excellent example passed to it’s current owner in 2017 who has used the car sparingly. Under his ownership the car has benefitted from a service and differential re-build by E-Type specialists Automo Ltd. This beautiful, matching numbers, E-Type presents very well with nice panel gaps and is a joy to drive.

Offered for sale with a current V5 registration document, a history file containing numerous invoices, previous MOTs and Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
