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-Man’s 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 20975) offered here at Autostorico is finished in its original colour scheme of Opalescent Silver Blue with Dark Blue leather interior. This original UK RHD example was supplied by Andover Garages Ltd to its first owner Mr M Thompson Coon of Towcester Northamptonshire on 10th November 1965. Remaining in long term ownership until October 2010, when the car was purchased by Raymond Carr a Jaguar enthusiast. Mr Carr then undertook a no expense spared restoration which included removing the engine and gearbox and stripping the whole body, before a bare metal respray was undertaken by marque specialist Colin Ginny. The car was also subject to a full mechanical overhaul including engine, gearbox, and suspension rebuild. Other notable works included overhauling the braking system including Cooper craft brakes, re-wire and Interior re-trim. This excellent example passed to its current owner in 2017 who has used the car sparingly. Under his ownership the car has benefitted from a service and recent head gasket replacement and an Alloy header tank fitted.

This beautiful, E-Type presents very well with nice panel gaps and is a joy to drive.

Offered for sale with a current V5 registration document, Original Jaguar documentation including Owners Service Policy, Periodic Maintenance Vouchers, Owner’s manual and Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
