1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster SOLD by Auction

For sale by auction on Saturday 21st September 2019 with Historics auctions.

Registration 595 DXR
Chassis Number 860226
Odometer reading 76825
Estimate £55000-£75000

Introduced in 3.8 litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The newcomer's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type and, indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a 'picture-frame' extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8 litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. This car was originally registered in March 1962, it is a desirable righthand drive, 3.8 litre, manual coupé example and was originally sold in red but now presents in British Racing Green. Comprehensively restored by the deceased, Mr. Jillings, in 1987, the work appears to have been to a very high standard and we are informed this was considered a 'nut and bolt' restoration by the current vendor and second owner, who is an engineer by trade. Mr. Jillings had decided to convert this car from a coupé to a roadster and considering this is an older restoration, upon inspection, much of the car appears very close to the standard that would have been seen post restoration. A sticker on the odometer indicates that the car may have covered just 3,000 miles since the restoration. The current odometer reading of 76,825 is also thought to be correct. Recently fully recommissioned since having been stored inside, this car is now in fabulous order. The interior presents as new and the underneath of the car is also in outstanding condition. The history file supplied with the car is comprehensive surrounding the dates of the restoration with many invoices and receipts coupled to previous MoT test certificates, a handbook and service manual. This is a very desirable conversion, carried out to a very high standard, by a talented engineer with provenance to match and thus will surely be a very attractive proposition to a potential 3.8 litre, Series I, E-type owner.
