Excellent project for sale. Has been a project for owners for many years, Achilles heel was probably plenty of rust in floor and rocker panels. That rust is now fixed and the body is nice and straight. This is an excellent shell, very straight, factory-like panel gaps around doors, not in crash, one of the few really straight ...

Jaguar E-Type History

Introduced in 1961, the Jaguar E-type showed the world what a sports car could really be. It was fast with a top speed of 150mph from its 4.2 straight-six engine (though it was available with a 3.8 straight-six, too), its D-Type derived chassis was a work of art, it was comfortable, and it was affordable – the Series 1 E-type, for example, could be bought for £2, 097 in 1961, which is £47, 513 in today’s money. For a big, luxury sports car, it was something of a bargain.

Of course, Jaguar naughtily tipped the scales in its favour. The original Series 1 test cars given to the press were rumoured to have been ‘breathed on’ ever so slightly, with engine balancing, gas-flowed cylinder heads and Dunlop Racing tyres – they had a larger rolling radius that resulted in that 150mph top speed! Cheeky, but it set the magazines on fire with interest.

The Jaguar E-type Series 2 came along in 1968. This model E-type featured headlights without the sleek glass covers, wrap-around rear bumper, larger front indicators and a bigger ‘mouth’ to aid cooling of the 4.2 litre straight-six engine.

In 1971 we were presented with Series 3 E-type. This model was more of an acquired taste, with a taller roof in coupe form, and a more pronounced face. However, to make up for the less than pleasing looks, it was fitted with a 5.3 litre V12 engine, which was originally developed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Any E-type is a wonderful thing to behold, though the ultimate in our mind would be a matching numbers (original engine in original chassis) Series 1, as these are arguably the most beautiful of all the E-type models. But no matter what you choose, you’re getting a true British classic.
