The car has not yet been painted, so the color is open to the desire of the purchaser. All systems will be gone through and the engine will be rebuilt back to factory specifications.

This Jaguar has had limited ownership and comes with two California black plates, and a nerf bar. Previous owner has had the car since the early 1970’s. A DVD of the restoration process will accompany the vehicle. Upon completion of the restoration this Jaguar will be a great example to drive, enjoy and compete in shows.


This Series I 4.2 E-type is the most desirable of all the series with a fully synchronized 4 speed transmission, covered headlights, toggle switches on the dash, comfortable bucket seats, center console, and arm rest. This makes the best driver and the most collectable for an investment grade vehicle. The Jaguar on offer is finished in red with black interior and is fitted with the uncommon removable hardtop. The classic lines on this car are respected throughout the automotive world; the design is iconic. The convertible is well-presented and powered by a 258-cid, 265-hp six-cylinder twin-camshaft engine with three carburetors and backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes. Currently has a AM/FM Craig radio.
