The US was Jaguar’s leading market for the E-Type; therefore when the US introduced certain safety legislations for 1969, Jaguar were forced to redesign specific parts of the E-Type and the Series 2 was born. Open headlights, redesigned rear end and a larger grille were just some of the new features, the Series 2 began production in late 1968. This Series 2 is a later example, manufactured on 12th February 1970 and dispatched to British Leyland, New York on 23rd February. The car was imported back to the UK in mid-2012 and entered its 2nd UK-owner’s hands in early-2017. Originally finished in Willow Green with Cinnamon hide and Black hood, this OTS retains its original 4.2 XK engine and 4-speed synchro gearbox meaning it is a fully matching numbers example. Once imported back to the UK, the owner set about having the car fully restored by an independent Jaguar specialist. It was stripped back to a bare metal shell and rebuilt over a period of three years from 2013-2016. This means today the car is presented in stunning condition; especially after having completed only a few hundred miles since restoration. The owner chose his favourite combination of Carmen Red with Black hide and hood to complete this E-Type to. We think this was a very good choice as you no longer see many E-Types finished to a high-standard in Carmen Red. The car comes with two very large files, one includes photos of the whole restoration process; whereas the other contains hundreds of parts and labour invoices from the restoration, as well as the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. This E-Type was not only restored, but converted to UK-specification, meaning it now has much more powerful triple SU carburettors with no smog equipment and is of course, right hand drive. This iconic classic is brilliant to drive as the original UK-specification cars usually are, and is a sure-fire investment for the future. This E-Type must be seen in person to be fully appreciated, if you would like to arrange a viewing please get into contact with us.

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 to make it more suitable for the American market, the 4.2 litre E-type was regarded at its time as the more refined model due to the introduction of synchro gearbox, servo brakes and a more luxurious interior including larger seats. This Series 1 4.2 Roadster was manufactured for delivery in USA in September 1966, Chassis No 1E 13560 and Engine No. 7E 10372-9 (supported by a Jaguar Heritage Certificate) and is finished in Carmen red with an immaculate black interior with a black mohair hood and hood cover (all original colours). The car underwent an extensive restoration in the USA in 2004 and comes with a large photographic record of restoration and comprehensive history file. Restoration covered every aspect to extraordinary detail across bodywork and mechanics including: • Full engine, gearbox, carburettors and independent rear suspension rebuild; • Upgraded cooling system with more efficient water pump; heavy duty radiator and Kenlow fan with 40 amp fuse; • Upgraded high performance leads, electronic ignition and modern starter motor; • Beautifully detailed engine bay and rear boot floor and sump; • Discreet I-phone wire to sound system; Since being shipped to the UK in September 2014, the car has benefited from a bare metal re-spray along with engine bay detailing, professional RHD conversation and some upgrading mechanical work: • Modern fan • Stainless steel exhaust • Electronic ignition This is a beautiful car with excellent shut lines and has an exceptionally detailed engine bay, rear boot compartment and independent rear suspension. With its well-kept original black interior, this car has been tuned to perfection with exhilarating responsiveness on both the throttle and brake that provides the most exciting and stable drive. With a perfectly tight quick synchro gearbox and no squeaks or rattles, this Series 1 E-type is a joy to drive. MOT till May 2018 and all UK documentations, as well as the original handbook and heritage certificate are present with the car.

Released in 1961, the E-type helped cement Jaguar as one of the most popular automotive exporters to the U.S market. The popularity of the E-type was further enhanced by the release in late 1964 of the Jaguar 4.2 litre engine, built to compete with the larger V8 engines used in US sports cars at the time. Providing more torque, the 4.2 litre engine launch coincided with the release of the much more advanced 4-speed synchro gearbox, hugely improving both the usability and driving experience of the E-Type. This Series 1 (1/2) 4.2 OTS was built on 7th November 1967 and shipped out to New York, USA on 22nd November. It currently retains its original colour combination of British Racing Green with Beige interior and Fawn hood, the first owner Richard J Neilam took delivery of the car from his local Jaguar dealer which we believe was situated in California, where the car would have spent the majority of its life. The car was imported back into the UK in mid-2011 by E-Type UK before being bought by the current owner who requested us to carry out a substantial amount of conversion and upgrade work in order to get the car to his desired specification. The car was completely converted to UK Series 1 specification; the main parts of this included a RHD conversion, triple SU carb upgrade, headlight closing, and S1 dash conversion. The car was also upgraded with a five-speed gearbox, aluminium radiator and header tank, electronic ignition, and wider triple-lace wheels. Since this work was carried out, we have serviced the car every 2 years as well as adding a few more usability-orientated upgrades along the way. This amounts to a fantastic E-Type with the ability to both keep up with modern traffic and to perform on par with modern sports cars. Due to regular check-overs and professional maintenance, the car is mechanically perfect and drives excellently. We have just fully serviced the car and carried out all work needed for an advisory-free MOT. All UK documentations as well as the original handbook and heritage certificate are present with the car.

This 4.2 Litre Series 1 FHC was built on 1st June 1966 and dispatched to Jaguar of Eastern Canada where its first owner, Arnold F Urech, resided. It was originally finished in the beautiful colour combination of Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior, the car still retains its original 4.2 XK engine and 4-speed synchro gearbox meaning it is fully matching numbers. This Canadian-supplied FHC E-Type is available for purchase as a restoration project finished to your exact specification, all work carried out by E-Type UK. The car is currently a sand-blasted shell, awaiting metalwork. To view other customer cars restored by us please visit the “Restoration” page on our website.

The 2+2 E-Type was introduced in March 1966 for the man who loved his family as much as he loved sports cars. To accommodate for the extra two people, the wheelbase was lengthened by 9 inches, the roof heightened by 2.5 inches, and two more seats were integrated into the back. This resulted in a fantastic E-Type experience for both adults and children alike. This 1968 Series 1½ 2+2 is a rarer and much preferred manual example. Subject to a full restoration in the late 1990s, this E-Type is in lovely condition and mechanically perfect. A recent trip to the Outer Hebrides without a single fault, and a recent MOT with no advisories show this to be the truth. With 5 previous owners, the car has been very well maintained since restoration with hundreds of receipts, twelve MOTs, and a Jaguar handbook present. This UK-supplied E-Type is a joy to drive, helped further by the short-shift overdrive 4-speed gearbox. To improve the aesthetics of the car, the original Series 1½ open headlights and ribbed cam covers have been swapped for their Series 1 counterparts; while the original black interior has been adorned with red piping to match the red exterior. Aside from these differences, the E-Type has been finished to original specification, often believed to be the purest E-Type driving experience there can be. This Carmen Red E-Type is ready to be enjoyed and will no doubt provide trouble-free classic motoring for whenever the time suits. A fantastic opportunity, we advise you to arrange a viewing in order to fully appreciate this car.

This matching numbers Series 1 4.2 OTS was built on 14th September 1966 and dispatched to New York, USA on 3rd October 1966. The first owner Barbara Devonne of Northern California purchased the car from her local dealer and allegedly owned the car all the way up to 2002 when it was sold and subsequently parked up for the next 9 years with only 47,000 miles on the odometer. Having had only 2 US owners the car was then sold to E-Type UK who imported it back to the UK, and registered and MOT’d the car. E-Type UK sold the car to its current owner who commissioned a full nut and bolt restoration by an independent, experienced specialist. During this 2013 restoration, the E-Type was converted to RHD as well as upgraded with electronic ignition and uprated electric cooling fan to ensure the car performs well in modern traffic. Once the restoration was complete, a full check over was completed by E-Type UK to ensure everything on the car was correct. Finished in its original colour combination of Pale Primrose Yellow with Black interior and Black hood, it is retained in fantastic cosmetic and mechanical condition. Due to being built to original mechanical specification too, this E-Type is a joy to drive. A brilliant investment that is ready to be both used and admired, if you are interested in this lovely 3-owner example please email Marcus or call us on 01732 852762.
