(SOLD) According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, this highly desirable Series I 4.2-liter E-type roadster was completed by Jaguar on 24 April 1967. On 11 May, it was dispatched to the Belgian Motor Co. of Brussels, Belgium, and its first recorded owner was one CHA Wright, a resident of Brussels at the time. Most recently, the E-Type was restored by the marque specialists, Classic Showcase located in Oceanside, California. Included in the restoration process was a complete body fit and repaint in a base coat, clear coat finish, which was color sanded and buffed; the bright work was rechromed as necessary, and all mechanical systems serviced and restored as needed. The newly fitted Grey interior is highlighted by matching leather seat upholstery and a radio blanking plate. Under the bonnet, the powerful 4.2-liter DOHC XKE ‘six’ is fitted with triple SU carburetors, mated to a fully-synchronized gearbox, and enhanced by a new aluminum radiator with auxiliary fan and a new header tank. A black cloth top and matching boot, fresh Pirelli P4000 radial tires, and 6 x 15 chrome wire wheels provide the final touches for increased driving pleasure. Consistently well-serviced and maintained by Jaguar professionals, this freshly restored and highly desirable late Series I roadster is ready for any discerning Jaguar collector or enthusiast to admire, drive and enjoy. Handsomely presented and ready to go in excellent running and driving order, it is accompanied at auction by a DVD documenting the restoration process and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.
From introduction in 1961, Jaguar’s E-Type was an instant legend. In particular, the later Series I cars are particularly desirable with significant updates including a larger 4.2-liter engine, fully-synchronized four-speed gearbox and adjustable bucket seats, combined with sleek early-style covered headlights and aircraft-inspired toggle switchgear. With their performance and style unencumbered by the tightening emissions and safety regulations of the late-1960s, E-Types such as the one offered here, remain an undisputed collector favorite today.
