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. Its design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular space frame extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, ‘S’ unit first offered as an option on the XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed, but whatever the installed horsepower, the E-Type’s performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 227kg less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car.

The Jaguar 3.8 fixed head coupe is probably one of the most desirable ‘E’ types, unquestionably the most beautiful, and this superb example has one of the best specifications one could wish for.
Finished in Opalescent sand with black leather interior, this superb example underwent an extensive restoration in 1991 and a further nut and bolt restoration between 2015 and 2016, which as you would expect included an engine rebuild. Still retaining its original colour combination, the car has however had the very important and appropriate changes to its rear-axle ratio. The restoration has been well-documented and included in the history file is a pdf of the full restoration by RS Classics.
Having travelled a mere 11,200 miles since completion of its nut and bolt restoration, the car can be described as nicely ‘driven in’ and drives beautifully. Offered at a fraction of the price such a restoration would cost, this car is not to be missed. Complete with Heritage certificate, Heritage Trust history folder, an original Service Manual and an Owners Handbook.
It has upgraded rear diff, brakes, radiator, fans, thermo fan controller switch and has Aldon electronic ignition and a Dynator installed instead of the Dynamo. It's recently had a full fluid swap and is regularly maintained by Willow Triumph a local classic specialist. Last serviced on 21st January along with a fresh MOT with no advisories. All servicing and upgrade etc. are in the history folder.

PLEASE COULD I ASK, IF YOU'RE NOT ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN BUYING THE CAR STOP CONTACTING ME. I WILL NOT GIVE OUT INFO ON THE CAR, WANT TO SELL ON YOUR WEBSITE OR AUCTION AND WONT ANSWER ANY EMAIL THAT DOESN'T SHOW SIGNS OF GENUINE INTEREST.
