Jaguar would make a habit of shocking the automotive world. Sometimes the impact of its cars reached beyond the showrooms and exposition halls to rock popular culture, yet not even Jaguar’s founder, Sir William Lyons, could have predicted the impact of the Jaguar E-Type.
When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the new Jaguar stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. Constructed using methods derived from the D-Type sports racing car, the E-Type was a technical marvel. The light and rigid monocoque chassis used the engine itself as a structural part of the car, with the long and sleek bonnet hinged at the front. The headlights were beautifully recessed in the fenders, and covered with contoured Perspex for a free-flowing design and improved aerodynamics.
Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed. With spare parts readily available, a number of marque clubs to join and many driving and concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent, widely admired collector car.
DD Classics is proud to offer this truly spectacular Series 1, 4.2 Litre E-Type Roadster, finished in its original colour scheme of Opalescent Silver Blue with a lovely Dark Blue hide which remains in wonderful condition.
This example was the subject of a nut & bolt restoration over the course of 6 years which was completed in 1996 and has only travelled a mere 5,000 miles in the intervening years. The car has some sensible upgrades including; electric fan, Coopercraft brake calipers, adjustable shock absorbers, electric ignition, stainless steel exhaust and tubular manifold, 5 speed gearbox and a stylish Dark Blue Mohair hood our E-Type still presents superbly and would be an eye-catching addition to any collection.
It is clear this car has been fastidiously maintained throughout its life and is probably one of the finest used E-Type Roadsters offered for sale anywhere today. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive history file which includes a vast number of invoices detailing works carried out, multiple past MOT certificates and an old style registration log-book from 1974. Our car still retains its original registration number “404 EAN”.
The cars chassis number indicates it was only the 25th RHD 4.2 litre OTS produced.
