1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Litre Roadster For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 16 - 17 January 2020. Estimate:$225,000 - $275,000 Recent comprehensive refurbishment by an E-Type restoration specialistMatching-numbers example as confirmed by JDHT certificateRetains its original chassis, engine, gearbox, and bodyOwned for many years by a marque collector based in AtlantaTastefully upgraded for improved reliability and performance Please note that this lot is titled as a 1967. This beautifully presented matching-numbers Jaguar benefits from years of ownership by a marque enthusiast followed by a premium restoration by one of the nation’s foremost E-Type experts. According to its Jaguar Heritage certificate, chassis no. 1E 13321 completed assembly in early August 1966 finished in Opalescent Silver Blue and trimmed with a dark blue leather interior with a blue top. Later that month the roadster was dispatched to the American distributorship Jaguar Cars New York, and it was eventually acquired by an Atlanta-based marque collector who enjoyed long-term ownership.The matching-numbers Jaguar was more recently sold to the consignor, a specialist in E-Type refurbishments. The engine was then rebuilt with new pistons, bearings, and crankshaft, and the cylinders were bored to a “plus 20” specification for improved power. The gearbox was rebuilt with new synchros and bearings, and the differential was rebuilt with a taller final-drive ratio of 3.07:1. Numerous components were replaced with brand-new facsimiles of the originals, including the clutch, fuel pump, and gas tank. The braking system was replaced with all-new lines, and the suspension was replaced with new shock absorbers and bushings. Several tasteful upgrades were undertaken for more reliable performance and reliability, including an improved cooling system with a modern alloy radiator (with a 16-inch fan that is six times more powerful than the original), a stainless-steel exhaust system, and electronic ignition and distributor. The steering wheel was replaced with a 15-inch reproduction component one inch narrower than the original, offering superior legroom.The wire wheels were replaced with new six-inch-wide original-style units (one inch wider than stock) mounted with Michelin 205/70 tires, better filling the wheel wells and providing the car with a more athletic stance. Cosmetically, the glass and chrome were replaced with all-new components, and the matching-numbers body was refinished in a deep coat of opalescent dark blue paint, while the interior was reupholstered in correct British-sourced red leather and vinyl, and a dark blue soft top was installed, combining for a particularly handsome color scheme.Dialed in for precise panel fit and outstanding running condition, this roadster is an exquisitely presented example of Jaguar’s 4.2-litre Series 1 E-Type that is ideal for any marque enthusiast. It would make a perfect candidate for display at local concours d’elegance as well as enjoyed on the open road for its well-prepared aesthetics and performance.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at
