|Odometer reading||21,607 miles|
|Estimate||£64,000 - £70,000|
The Jaguar E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975 and its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960's motoring. The Series I was introduced, initially for export only in March 1961, the cars at this time used the triple SU carburetted, 3.8 litre six cylinder XK engine from the XK150S. The 3.8 litre engine was increased to 4.2 litres in October 1964, although there was never a fixed specification for this unofficial model, the Series I½, can be recognised by glass covered headlights, small 'mouth' opening at the front, signal and tail lights above the bumpers and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear. The 4.2 litre engine offered increased power and usability whilst retaining the same outward appearance as the earlier cars.
This rare Jaguar is one of 974 right hand drive Series I 2+2 coupés ever made. This beauty from Coventry had a full body refurbishment with Andy Marshall of Mansfield in 2015 and presents stunningly in red. The original interior is in good order and shows a lovely patina. We are informed by the vendor that this E-Type runs well and sounds wonderful. This car benefits from uprated Fossway brakes with vented discs. This attractive car is presented to auction with a V5C registration certificate.
