The 4.2 litre Jaguar E-type was the natural evolution of the 3.8 Series 1 Jaguar E-type, with a larger engine and more luxurious interior, the 4.2 litre E-type was regarded at its time as the more refined model. Bringing with it the all new synchromesh 4-speed gearbox, a gearbox which today is still regarded by many to be the gearbox of choice for the ultimate E-type driving experience. This 1966 matching numbers Jaguar E-type is presented beautifully in its original Heritage certificate colours of Pale Primrose exterior, contrasting black hide interior and black mohair hood. Retaining the original seats which were new to the 4.2 Jaguar E-type, replacing the ‘bucket’ style seats of the 3.8 model, this trim has been finished to a very high standard and is true to the spirit of the 4.2-litre Jaguar E-type. Having undergone a full restoration since being imported back into the UK, with the work being undertaken by some of the best in the business and having been finished off and fully inspected by E-Type UK. This E-type represents the perfect opportunity to invest in a classic car which is continuing to go up in value and an E-type which has been built to withstand modern driving conditions, fitted with silicone hoses and uprated electronic fan. This is an E-type which is not to be missed and is available for immediate inspection at our Kent showrooms, to arrange a viewing please contact Marcus on 01732 852 762 or Marcus@etypeuk.com.
Launched in March 1961, the 3.8L Jaguar E-type was initially for export only, it wasn’t until the combination of looks, performance and pricing captured the British public’s imagination that the car launches domestically in July 1961. The earliest E-types had a number of defining features that were later removed including, external bonnet catches, louvered bonnet and flat floors, although this was not the only telling featured they are often the most recognisable. Having recently completed a total nut and bolt restoration, this E-type is truly a fantastic example of an early E-type. Retaining a number of period features including the highly desirable and limited available louvered bonnet and flat floors. This 3.8L E-type was delivered new to Jaguar Cars, New York, U.S.A and resided in California. Finished in heritage certificate black with a black soft top, this car really does glisten and glean on a summers day. Containing suede green interior and the original gear knob, this E-type has had an original Jaguar synchro gearbox fitted but retains the highly desirable but more agricultural MOSS box with the E-type. The E-type has not had any expense spared throughout the restoration and in the years following the restoration. Meticulously kept receipts for all work undertaken and a digital copy of the restoration as this highly desirable 3.8L E-type was restored only further enhances the desirability of this particular E-type. This louvered bonnet, flat floor Series 1 E-type is a joy to drive and with the soft top down is the perfect companion to a summer jaunt. With a number of compassionate upgrades including air filter, gearbox, fast road engine, aluminium radiator, this E-type represents the perfect opportunity to not only have a fantastic car but a highly lucrative investment. Available for immediate inspection at our Kent showrooms, we would welcome all interested to call Marcus on 01732 852 762 or email Marcus@etypeuk.com to view the E-type.
