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

Jaguar E-type: Buying guide and review (1961-1974) Classic and Performance Car
Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type Jaguar E-type
More column inches of purple prose must have been devoted to the Jaguar E-type than any other car. So let’s not try. Let’s take it as a given that the E-type is as beloved as the late Queen Mum and just as much a symbol of everything that put the Great into Britain. Let’s ask, instead – why has this car, which was a long way from perfect even when it was brand new in 1961, achieved a near-mythical status? And why has Jaguar yet to come up with anything more memorable?
The E-type is certainly one of a mere handful of British vehicles that are instantly recognisable to people who have absolutely no interest in motoring. It’s become a mobile cliché of the Swinging Sixties; Mike Myers’ ‘Shaguar’ E-type in the Austin Powers movies was supposedly inspired by ’60s heart-throb Simon Dee driving away with the blonde in the E-type at the end of his TV chat show, Dee Time. 
Real-life celebrity owners such as footballer George Best (‘I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered...’) gave the E-type a louche, caddish image that was probably the last thing Sir William Lyons intended and yet was ironically in keeping with Jaguar’s well-established reputation as ‘the Bentley of Wardour Street’ – a thoroughfare in the heart of London’s Soho that in the 1950s was a synonym for sleaze and vulgarity.
Which brings us to the crux of the matter, the E-type’s looks. Men and women are shallow creatures when it comes to judging by appearances, and the E-type has that kind of immediately accessible sex appeal that will never go out of fashion. Even the Italians were impressed: Enzo Ferrari reputedly called it ‘the most beautiful car ever made’ – though one suspects that, like most great quotes, this one may not be entirely reliable. 
Great looks, fab engine; shame about the brakes, seats and gearbox. OK, that’s being slightly harsh, but the E-type was  awed even by the standards of 1961. The brakes were discs all round – good – but they weren’t up to keeping a hard-driven 140mph-plus E-type in check – bad. The simple bucket seats were not terribly comfortable and there wasn’t enough room for taller drivers, while the Moss gearbox was as slow and obstructive as it had always been in previous XKs. Rumour has it that it was designed for a pre-war truck.
On the other hand, the independent rear suspension was a genuine innovation (take that, Ferrari, with your beam rear axles – pah!) that gave the E-type a comfortable ride and superb roadholding. And that was a key reason why E-types could be raced, and win, straight out of the box, as drivers such as Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and many more immediately proved. Jaguar’s reputation for building cars that really shifted without rattling the occupants’  llings started with the E-type.
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 E-type 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.
As the most affordable, the Series 3 is worth consideration. By the time it was launched in 1971, the E-type had been in production for a full ten years and, while the Series 2 was an upgrade of the Series 1, the Series 3 was an entirely different animal.
The venerable XK twin-cam straight-six was replaced by a mighty V12 of 5.3 litres, in the process of which the sporty E-type grew up to become a civilised grand tourer with more space and comfort. Yet some Jaguar enthusiasts were dismayed. ‘Soft’ and ‘fat’ were words sometimes used to describe the Series 3 and, yes, it is longer, wider and heavier than previous E-types. But the magnificent V12 engine is a gem that stumps out a useful 276bhp and 304lb ft of torque – leading figures of the day, and much more than the equivalent Mercedes-Benz SL or BMW 3.0 CS could muster.
As the V12 is constructed of aluminium, the Series 3 weighs only about 100kg more than the Series 2 and the independent suspension is much the same, so suggestions that it had become fat and soft are erroneous: it’s actually more powerful and faster than previous E-type iterations. Of course, the S3 has power steering as standard and most have automatic transmission too, but find a rare manual, fit some uprated dampers, check the cooling system is up to muster and that the tyres are up to pressure – then blow the doors off  earlier E-types with easy disdain.

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.

    Chassis No. 875256 Original matching numbers Open two seater Left hand drive Outside bonnet lock Available for sale only as a restoration project with CMC This rare French barn find is one of the first 500 E-Types produced by Jaguar and one of the very early left hand drive, outside bonnet lock cars with all matching numbers. Chassis No. 875256 was delivered new to the Belgium Motor Company dealership in Brussels in July 1961 and was subsequently sold to ‘Societe de Civel Immeubles en Afrique.’ It resurfaced in France in 2015 and we believe it was imported from Luxembourg in 1975. It was owned by a professor, who is still alive and the previous owner has had contact with him. The car is very complete, although in parts, and was bought by the previous owner to be restored. He gave it to French restorers who started work on the car, but shortly after took it away and kept it safe in his garage in Grigny in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. CMC purchased Chassis No. 875256 from him and is now offering it as a restoration project. They are currently delving through the car’s history files to find out more about its life, and will be updating this page with new information. In the meantime, Chassis No. 875256 is now in the company’s world-class facility in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, waiting for a new owner to give it the quality restoration it deserves. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a very early E-Type and have it restored by the world’s premier Jaguar restoration company, and would certainly prove to be a very wise investment. Please contact us if you are interested in Chassis No. 875256 and would like to view it or discuss further details about costs and spec of the restoration.

    NB : OTS = Open Seat Tourer The Jaguar E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of good looks, high performance, and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring. A great success for Jaguar, over seventy thousand E-Types were sold during its lifespan. After the company's success at the LeMans 24 hours through the 1950s, Jaguar's defunct racing department was given the brief to use D-Type style construction to build a road going sports car, replacing the XK150. It is suspected that the first prototype (E1A) was given the code based on: (E): The proposed production name E-Type (1): First Prototype (A): Aluminium construction (Production models used steel bodies) The car featured a monocoque design, Jaguar's fully independent rear suspension and the well proved "XK" engine. The car was used solely for factory testings and was never formally released to the public. The car was eventually scrapped by the factory. The Series 1 was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961. The domestic market launch came four months later in July 1961. The cars at this time used the triple SU carburetted 3.8 liter engine fr the XK 150. The first

The now iconic E-Type set new standards in automotive design and performance when it was launched in 1961. Its influence is still apparent in Jaguar’s modern range: cars that offe

    Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Just arrived – E-Type 4.2 FHC 1966 LHD This fascinating E-Type is a very original one-owner matching number car that was delivered new to Geneva before being imported to the UK and subsequently dry-stored for almost 30 years. Constructed as a LHD Coupe with the new 4.2 Litre engine this E-type was delivered new to a Mr Moustafa Ammar, a diplomat living in Geneva and working for the Swiss Embassy. According to the original Bill of Sale that comes with the car, Mr Ammar took delivery of the Jaguar on June 14th 1966. It came with an optional Becker radio and key operated aerial and was finished in Opalescent Dark Green with Light Tan interior. During his time in Switzerland Mr Ammar used the car comprehensively, driving around Europe and even on occasion taking the long journey back to Egypt, as confirmed by Petrol receipts found in the car. Both Ammar and the E-type remained in Switzerland until 1970 when he was posted to the Egyptian Embassy in London. Naturally he brought the car with him, registering it in August of 1970, which explains the J registration number it carries to this day. Over the next 19 years the car was similarly well-us
