The values of Jaguar E-types have come a long way from the launch price of £2097 for a roadster on the 15th March 1961. The E-type was cheaper than a number of marques with similar performance cars such as Ferrari and Aston Martin. With the best examples of Series 1 Roadsters selling for well in excess of £200,000, there is no question that the combination of looks and performance continues to be as desirable now as it was then. Manufactured in March 1965, this original RHD example is one of just under 900 4.2 litre roadsters manufactured. This restoration project is currently in primer ready for paint, with the original colour combination of Carmen Red and Black trim, this E-type will be one of the most desirable on the market once complete. Coming complete with all numbers matching, this E-type is widely regarded as the E-type to have when it comes to usability and value. The 4 speed synchro gearbox compliments the 4.2 litre, 6 cylinder engine. Shipped back from the USA after spending much of its life in California, this RHD E-type provides the perfect opportunity to build a truly iconic British car to your own specification. With much of the body work done, there really isn’t much to hide within this project and can enter the build-up process immediately. The car is being sold at £100,000 for a painted shell, this can be painted to a requested colour for the buyer. Alternatively, this can be purchased as a fully restored E-type with the option to spec parts of the build for £245,000. This E-type is available for viewing now, we would be happy to discuss restoration options with any prospective buyers, please contact Marcus on 01732 852 762 alternatively email Marcus@etypeuk.com
