From its launch in 1961 to the end of its production in 1975, the Jaguar E-Type went from design revelation to motoring icon in a generation. Based on Jaguar’s three time Le Mans winning D-Type and known internationally for its beautiful sleek lines and a top speed of 150mph, this revolutionary car had three significant series changes during its fourteen-year build span. Each model enjoyed subtle changes which included chassis length, headlight style and switchgear but all retained the famous Jaguar DNA instilled by the company’s founder Sir William Lyons.

This lovely example was originally supplied by Henlys of London on 6th June 1969 as a Fixedhead Coupé and at some point, in its history, a correct Roadster body was fitted retaining all other parts which are original. This Jaguar has had much spent on it over the years, with the current owner spending circa £8,000 recently (details of work carried out in history file). Its red leather interior is in good condition as is the matching red hood and headlining. It also comes with its rare factory hardtop, Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate and numerous invoices outlining work carried out over the years.
