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.

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.

The Series 3 E-Type was introduced in 1971. To ensure the E-Type continued to appeal to the US-market (Jaguar’s biggest buyer), the wheelbase was lengthened, power steering was added as well as Jaguar’s brand new roadgoing V12 engine. These changes made the E-Type a much more comfortable and capable grand tourer. To keep the E-Type in tune with 1970s design, flared wheel arches were added and a redesigned enclosed grille as well as other, more subtle changes. This 1974 Series 3 OTS is a US-market car and it lived there (predominantly in California before moving to Michigan in 2003) until late 2015, when it was imported to Germany. About a year later we decided to purchase the car and bring it back to its country of origin; we have now decided to list it for sale. Originally this car would have had the large, ugly US-spec over-riders but it has since been converted back to small ones on the front and none on the rear, revealing the beautiful lines of the car once again. Finished in its fantastic original combination of Old English White with Russet Red interior, this matching numbers E-Type has clearly been cared for and maintained well throughout its lifetime. The car has never been modified or messed with and therefore is in highly original condition throughout. Being a Californian car, the E-Type is also completely rot-free and luckily this one does not have a typical Californian interior! Series 3 E-Types are currently one of the best investments money can buy, they are becoming increasingly appreciated by classic car collectors as brilliant and stylish Grand-Tourers. We believe they are still very well valued compared to Series 1 E-Types as well as other classics in the GT class.

This E-type was exported to the U.S for Mr. J. W. Deeming and was shipped as a ‘Personal Export Delivery’ E-type. With extensive history dating back to December 1968, the first recorded mileage of 10,910 can be found a receipt dating from 1969 from a RAYMONF IMPROTED MOTORS of Cincinnati, Ohio at which time the E-type was owned by a Mr. Larry Heil with receipts present for his ownership going through to 1987. By 2008, the E-type was beng looked after by a Sports and Vintage Race Car company based in Georgia and owned by Mr. Richard Snyder. The first record of Mr. Snyder’s ownership dates from 1989 in Carmel, Indiana and receipts also from South Carolina under the same ownership. Eventually in 2010, the E-type was exported back to the UK, supplied with original Georgian title, the E-type remained in Mr. Snyder’s ownership until this time. Upon being importing back to the E-type was stripped and as such begun the restoration.

This highly original UK-Supplied 1974 V12 OTS has had only 2 previous owners with a very large history file including the original Jaguar handbooks supplied in the original tan wallet. The current owner has owned and enjoyed the car for more than 9 years, during which he has commissioned a large amount of both mechanical and cosmetic work including bodywork and respray, and a full engine rebuild. Both coming to a total of more than 24,000 Euros, this was when the car was residing in France with the current owner. Finished in its original colour of Old English White with a totally original Black interior including fantastic patinated leather seats, original carpets and radio. The car is fully matching numbers and we believe the showing mileage of 63,000 to be correct due to the condition of the untouched interior and other parts as well as the large history file. The soft-top goes up and down with ease and is in perfect condition, as is the soft rear window. Delivered new to Beck Kindergarten Ltd, Beckenham, Kent, the car was owned by them for just a year before being sold to Russell Byron Tant of Luton who owned the car from 1975 all the way to 2008 when it was purchased by the current owner in a non-running state. The car then moved to France in order for the owner to work there for a number years, all recommissioning work was carried out in France including bodywork, full engine rebuild and mechanical check over with replacement of any worn parts. Since then the car has been maintained accordingly with all necessary work being carried out. Therefore today the car is presented in fantastic mechanical order with a beautiful original interior and bodywork. In a world of fully restored classic cars, a factory original E-Type is a rarity and should definitely be appreciated. The car has a great amount of torque, the 3-speed automatic gearbox shifts well and is the perfect partner for the silky-smooth V12.

This 1967 4.2 OTS was imported by us from the dry climate of South California very recently, and is now awaiting its first UK-owner. Manufactured on 17th May 1967 and exported to New York, USA on 7th June, the car was then sent to a dealer believed to be in Tennessee where its first owner, William G. Tally, took delivery. This E-Type was lightly restored to a high standard in the US, where the original colour of Opalescent Golden Sand with Light Tan interior was changed for British Racing Green with Biscuit interior. The original 4.2 engine and synchro gearbox were retained meaning the car is fully matching numbers. Aside from modern electronic ignition to improve reliability, this OTS example was finished to completely original mechanical specification, often praised as the purest E-Type driving experience. The car comes complete with its original handbook, heritage certificate and other original maintenance documents. It is evident that the car has been cared for and maintained very well since its rebuild, this beautiful BRG 4.2 OTS represents both a great investment and a classic to enjoy for many years to come.

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.

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.
