Jaguar E-type: Buying guide and review (1961-1974)

Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type
Nine out of ten cool cats who expressed a preference reckon the Jaguar E-type is the most glamorous, sensual car of all time. And is that any wonder? There aren’t enough superlatives in the dictionary to do the E-type justice; if grown men had car posters on their bedroom walls, this Jag would grace most of them. All those clichés about setting the world alight are true; this car really did rewrite the rulebook. 
 
With looks, pace, power, engineering and heritage, the Jag also offered an extra quality – relative affordability. While Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche et al had worthy rivals, they were much more costly. That price differential has remained; a superb E-type can now be valuable, but an equivalent DB4 or 250GT will cost rather more.
 
Which one to buy?
 
It’s easy to overlook the differences between the various iterations of E-type, but they’re highly significant. Buy the wrong car and you’ll wonder what all the fuss is about. Also, don’t get taken in by the glamour of the roadster when the coupé is more affordable and every bit as good to drive. 
 
Generally, the earlier the E-type, the more desirable and expensive it is. Later cars do offer something more of a relaxed GT experience, while the earlier cars are the more sporting and focused driving machines. Which one you go for really depends on how you intend on using your classic Jaguar. 
 
There’s also the question of originality. The E-type is one of the most receptive classic cars to upgrades, and most cars will have received a few modifications along the way. If you’re not too fussed about the car retaining every original detail, then there are many new parts that can improve reliability, performance and drivability. A few companies also offer cars ready built to more modern usable standards, such as Eagle. 
 
Original right-hand-drive cars are a lot rarer than you’d think. Around 85 per cent of production was exported, so many right-hand-drive cars have been converted from left-hand drive at some point. Just ensure the car you buy is what it claims to be. Check it has the correct engine and that it’s not a roadster, which left the factory as a coupé. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust is invaluable in providing details of the car’s original spec. 
 
If the car does need work there’s no need to fret about parts availability, because everything is available to revive an E-type, no matter how tired. With the right tools and enough time, a competent home mechanic can tackle just about any job that’s likely to crop up. 
 
Few cars at any price are as rewarding to own or drive as a well-restored E-type. And there’s the rub; it must be properly renovated if it is to give any pleasure – and there’s a huge amount of enjoyment to be gained from E-type ownership.

What about the Lightweight Jaguar E-type?
 
How did Jaguar make the E-type quick enough to keep up with (and even beat) the racebred GTO? Simple. It added lightness. Only two years after Jaguar launched the road car, it followed the precedent set by John Coombs’ racing prototype. When the 12 factory Lightweights appeared, they all employed a much lighter aluminium alloy main body tub, as well as 18-gauge aluminium bonnet, doors and bootlid. Result: the E-type shed around 120kg compared with the standard car – actually making it lighter than the 1078kg of the Ferrari.
 
More power followed too, thanks to Lucas fuel injection for the newly dry-sumped engine, which also featured an aluminium block in place of the heavy iron one of the standard car’s, while the race-bred D-type donated its cylinder head. The Manufacturers’ Championship rules changed from sports cars to GTs in 1963, opening the E-type up to a racing world dominated by the GTO, the Chevrolet Corvette and soon the Shelby Cobra. Don’t go looking for headline wins at Le Mans and Sebring in the Lightweight’s racing history. Instead, this car became a class-winning privateer’s dream, outpacing the Ferrari and the ’Vette over shorter distances.
 
Unfortunately, those alloy-block engines were prone to overheating, so the long-distance races of the Lightweight’s era remained the preserve of its rivals while Jaguar developed the stillborn mid-engined XJ13 racer.

Common problems
 
• The 1961-1971 E-type’s iconic XK unit is renowned for its durability as long as it’s looked after. Capable of giving 150,000 miles between rebuilds, the straight-six isn’t especially stressed unless regularly thrashed – and few owners drive hard.

• Get it up to temperature before testing; listen for any knocks or rattles. Check for oil leaks as well as exhaust smoke; expect a few wisps on start-up, but things should soon settle. Once fully warm, look for at least 40psi on the pressure gauge with the engine turning over at 3000rpm.

• Make sure the cooling fan cuts in on tickover. If the temperature gauge needle keeps climbing, the engine may well have overheated once: evidence of a blown head gasket is white ‘mayonnaise’ on the oil filler cap. If the motor is smoking badly or it’s very rattly, it’ll need total rebuild.

• The V12 that arrived in 1971 is an all-time great; properly kept it’ll do 200,000 miles. Poor maintenance leads to overheating, so idle the engine for a few minutes and watch the gauge. Harshness points to previous overheating having distorted the long block and heads. These are alloy, so anti-freeze must be maintained otherwise internal corrosion is guaranteed, leading to a less-efficient cooling system that ensures even worse overheating.

• Low oil pressure at idle isn’t a problem, but check for at least 45lb (preferably 55lb) at 2500rpm. Leaks are common at the rear crankshaft seal; once it’s failed, a full rebuild is needed. Cars that have been run infrequently are especially likely to suffer from this, as the seal dries out then wears more readily.

• The V12 has 20 rubber coolant hoses; the replacement of perished ones is very involved as the water rails and carbs have to be removed. They must also be to the correct reinforced spec; the coolant system runs at 15psi (earlier E-types are just 4 psi).

• The original rubber fuel lines will now be brittle, while the Zenith-Stromberg carbs go out of tune when their diaphragms perish. Rebuilt carbs are the best solution; there are four at £350 each. Incidentally, the V12 happily runs on unleaded, as hardened valve seats were factory fitted.

• E-type gearbox and driveline issues? There’s little to worry about here, but listen for clonks that signify worn universal joints or whining that betrays a dodgy diff. Fixing the former is straightforward; the latter is less easy and rather more costly. 

• Gearboxes are also strong, but the recalcitrance of the Moss unit on 3.8-litre cars is legendary. It’s noisier than the later one, too, so don’t expect a ‘box that’s especially easy or pleasant to use, particularly when selecting first or reverse. 

• Most V12s have a three-speed Borg Warner Model 12 auto, yet the Jaguar four-speed manual is more sought after. They’re both durable, but the latter can suffer from weak synchro on second and third; check for difficulty selecting gears when cold. 

• If ratio changes are jerky on the auto, or there’s any slipping, a service involves fresh fluid, filters and band adjustment. For an overhaul, budget £1100. Clutches, diffs and driveshafts are durable, but check for vibrations, clonks or whines.

• What about the suspension, steering and brakes? Jack up each wheel and rock it diagonally, feeling for wear in the bushes and bearings. If there is no play at the rear, the bearings have been set too tight and will probably overheat and fail. There are some in the hub as well as the lower fulcrum; a little play in each of these can lead to what feels like an alarming amount of movement at the wheel, but it should be no more than an eighth of an inch or so.

• Remove the rear wheels and look at the axle cage mountings, which can perish or break. If you’ve already driven the car by now and it feels rather lively at the back, it could be due to rear-wheel steering as a result of the wear. While you’re under there, ensure there’s no oil leaking from the diff onto the inboard rear brakes. 

• Any signs of trouble and it’s an axle-out job to sort. If there are creaks from the rear suspension, it’ll be because the lower hub pivots have corroded; if not greased regularly they wear rapidly or seize.

• At the front there shouldn’t be nearly as much play, but don’t be surprised if you can detect a small amount. If it’s bearing wear, that’s easy to sort, but it might be worn lower wishbone balljoints. These act directly on the wishbone, which can be shimmed only so much before replacements are needed at a little over £100 per side. 

• The rack-and-pinion steering is reliable, but wear in the column joints is normal; replacement is easy. The brakes should feel very strong, but imbalance is usually caused by that oil on the discs we mentioned. 

• The handbrake can also give problems; the self-adjusting mechanism often seizes through lack of greasing. Try to roll the car on a level surface and see if it quickly grinds to a halt; if it does, fixing is simply a case of freeing off and lubing.

• Although steel wheels were standard, chromed wires are now fitted to many V12s. The usual checks for damaged spokes and worn splines are essential; this is especially important with a V12 because of the torque generated.

Summary and prices
 
Crucially, there’s no such thing as a bargain E-type. It’s quite common for someone to buy an example that’s priced at £20,000 below what would be expected. Then the new owner starts delving and discovers that to get the model up to the standard they were expecting, it needs £50,000 spent on it.
 
Starting with the Series 1, top condition FHC models cost up to £165,000, although concours examples might go for more. Decent examples can be picked up for between £65,000-£110,000, while rusty projects can still be found for £40,000. The Roadsters are considerably more expensive, topping out at £225,000, while usable runners can be picked up for £100,000-£130,000. Budget around £60,000 for a restoration project. Later 4.2-litre cars are generally valued at around the same level. 
 
Moving on to the Series 1.5 and Series 2 cars, for around £100,000, you can get one of the best coupe examples, or pay £135,000 for a roadster. These models are easier to live with, and represent the most common models, making it a popular choice if you plan on using it regularly. Budget around £35,000-£55,000 for a decent running coupe, and £70,000-£100,000 for the average roadster. 
 
The 2+2 is generally the bargain of the E-type range, and while it does look a little awkward compared to the normal models, it is considerably roomier inside, and prices for good cars range from £30,000-£65,000. 
 
The final V12 models also represent good value, especially in coupe form. Pay anywhere from £18,000-£50,000 for one of these in running condition, with £75,000 being the upper limit for one of the best. Roadsters are actually valued much higher, and you will generally pay twice as much as the equivalent coupe.

    This beautifully presented Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 FHC was manufactured on the 24th August 1970 and left the factory in British Racing Green with manual transmission. The E-Type was dispatched on the 18th September through Personal Export Delivery and distributed by British Leyland, New York, USA. The E-Type was returned to the UK in 1989 and MOT tested in the October with a recorded mileage of 62915. From 1989 to 2012 the E-Type was dry stored and not used and during 2012 a two year programme of restoration was undertaken and today the E-Type presents in exceptional condition with some lovely, desirable upgrades enhancing the driving of the car. In 2012 a Gloucestershire based Restoration Company stripped the E-Type bodywork and carried out a complete full re-paint in British Racing Green. They contracted the interior work to a local specialists and a full re-trim was carried out in Sage Green. New wheels and tyres were fitted, chrome work was replaced and various new trims and rubbers supplied and fitted. In 2014 mechanical upgrades included a new T5 , 5 speed gearbox, new electronic power steering, a lightened and balanced flywheel and all new silicon coolant and heater hose

The car was extensively stripped and the bodywork taken back to bare metal.

    Interested in this vehicle? Please email us at info@auto-invest.co.uk or contact us directly by telephone on 01363 83909 One of the great benefits of having a comprehensive history file for a 44 year old classic car is that one can get a clear picture of what has occurred over that time. It is evident that this car has never had nor needed a complete restoration having obviously been well looked after by its various owners. A valuation report dated 1996 by K & R Motor Engineers in London states that some 24 years on from its manufacture the bodywork remained excellent and rust free and concludes overall condition to be excellent in all respects. It had a full engine overhaul at renowned Jaguar specialists VSE some years ago at 81,000 miles including a new clutch and has covered just 7,000 miles since then. Apart from some minor bodywork refreshment in the early 1980's, it would appear that the only major work needed was a full, back to bare metal respray carried out in 2001 at a huge cost in the context of the time of £4,500. The British Racing Green paintwork remains superb to this day and the car has never had a colour change. The interior was fully retrimmed in the original spec

  • 1971 Jaguar E-Type Series III 2+2

    POA POA

    By the mid-1960s, the Jaguar E-Type was appealing to the man with a young family but who were restricted by the size of the current Jaguar E-Type fixedhead coupé and its open topped sibling. This prompted Jaguar to offer a third option in the form of a 2+2 coupé. By adding nine inches to the wheelbase and two inches in height, it was then possible to fit a rear seat capable of seating two adults in tolerable comfort. Of course the rear seat was more suited to children or, as 'The Motor' put it at the time, the car could 'extend Dad's youth for another seven years'. Robert Bell in Motor was quoted as saying at the time that "all we expected to try was a new engine but what in fact we drove was a new car. Not a yowling, aggressive Ferrari-like machine with which, perhaps, most people associate a V12 engine but a very smooth, quiet and refined grand touring sports car". This is a matching numbers, genuine UK car originally registered on 5 th January 1972.

    Lindner Nocker Low Drag E-Type No. 3, 4 & 5 Lindner Nocker Low Drag E-Type No. 2 has been completed and delivered to its new owner in September 2014. WE ARE NOW TAKING ORDERS FOR CAR NO. 3, 4 AND 5. EACH CAR WILL TAKE 24 MONTHS TO COMPLETE FROM DATE OF ORDER. A stunning blueprint copy of the iconic Lindner Nocker Low Drag Lightweight E-Type, prepared by the same team of skilled craftsmen who restored the original car to great acclaim, resulting in it winning the Restoration of the Year at the International Historic Motoring Awards in 2011. The new body is totally accurate and was built by the world renowned R S Panels. Every aspect of the vehicle is as per the original specification, including the changes made in its life from an alloy engine block to the steel block, which was the most powerful XK engine Jaguar ever produced in house at 344bhp. Uniquely the VIN plate for this car is being manufactured using some of the off cuts of aluminum saved from the restoration of the original Lindner Nocker Low Drag Coupe. The new owner will be able to have final input into the car’s specification for either road or track. This car is destined to be a future classic that will not only reward its owner as a wise investment but will be a joy to drive. Each vehicle will be supplied with full FIA Historic Technical Passport to make it eligible to race in any classic/historic race series.

    POA POA

    This wonderful 1966 Series one E type Roadster was supplied new to a Gentleman from Oklahoma for his daughters graduation present. As she could not master the manual gear change, he took the car back and kept it as a holiday car until his passing 3 years ago. It is in remarkable original condition and has clearly been looked after well. It has the usual paint fade which he rectified by a not very high quality respray and the leather seat covers have been replaced by vinyl, another typical US trait. With very little work the car could be made to be roadworthy, or it would make a superb basis for a 100 point Concours restoration. Series One Roadsters are becoming very hard to find in this condition and I fear I wont find another this good to keep, but I already have a 3.8 OTS so sadly this must go to its next lucky owner. NOW SOLD THANK YOU
