(SOLD) This wonderful E type has undergone a comprehensive, documented restoration by Classic Showcase. With only 850 test miles driven since the restoration, this E type is ready for showing and driving. No expense was spared in this correct and proper restoration. The craftsmanship is superb as well as the fit and finish. Perfection was our goal in restoring this original numbers matching E-Type Roadster. Included in the restoration process the vehicle was evaluated, inspected, and photographed. Then disassembled, stripped to bare metal, placed on a rotisserie, metal finished, leaded, all body parts fitted to the car as well as the chrome, prepared for primer, sealer, paint, base and clear coat, color sanded and buffed to a fabulous finish. It received a new windshield and door glass. All mechanical systems and components were rebuilt, serviced, restored or replaced as needed. The engine and transmission were rebuilt back to factory specifications as well as the rear end and suspension. All other systems such as the electrical system, hydraulic system, cooling system and fuel system were restored or replaced and the car received all new wire harness, new rubber, and grommets.

This vehicle sits on 6 inch tires and has a one inch smaller steering wheel for better handling. It has a Sony AM/FM CD stereo system in the radio console. The top bows and seat frames were restored. The car received a complete new custom tailored and fit interior in the correct materials by our upholstery department. This is a spectacular color combo, a wonderful car that is for the discerning Jaguar collector. A DVD of the restoration process accompanies the vehicle.
All E-Types featured independent coil spring rear suspension, and with torsion bar front ends, and four wheel disc brakes, in-board at the rear, all were power-assisted. The Series 1 can be recognized by glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), small "mouth" opening at the front, signal lights and tail-lights above bumpers and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear. The 3.8 liter cars have leather-upholstered bucket seats, and an aluminum-trimmed centre instrument panel. This Jaguar is the early Series I E-type 3.8 Roadster. It has a 4 speed transmission, covered headlights, toggle switches on the dash, and the early-style bucket seats. It was a great candidate for restoration before we restored it.
