Jaguar E-type buying guide (1961-1974)

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.



Jaguar historian Philip Porter runs the E-type Club. He owns several examples himself, and says: ‘There’s a huge spread of values from £5000 up to £200,000 – or £1million for a genuine Lightweight. At one extreme you can buy a 2+2 project and at the other a superbly restored, heavily upgraded Series 1 roadster. 



Jaguar E-type engines



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 – but don’t panic. You can rebuild one at home for around £2000, or pay double this to get it done professionally. If you go DIY, the XK engine is the easier to revive of the pair.



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. A specialist charges £4000+, or you could do it yourself for £600 – if you’re skilled. 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 15lb psi (earlier E-types are just 4lb psi). A full set is £143.50.
 
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 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 with a replacement diff costing £750. 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. Expect to pay £900 for a rebuilt transmission, whether it’s a Moss unit or a later one.



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. Expect to pay £400 for an exchange unit.



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 at just £65 for the pair. 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.

Should you buy a Jaguar E-type? 



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. 



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. Philip Porter’s book Original Jaguar E-type (details in books listing), will highlight any inconsistencies in the specification.



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. 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.

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.

  • Jaguar increased the E-Type's engine capacity to 4.2-litres in October 1964 and, with the change, came a sweeter all-synchromesh gearbox, better brakes and electrical systems, and more comfortable seats. The suspension was independent all round with wishbones and torsion bars at the front and wishbones, radius arms and twin coil springs at the rear. Braking was by servo-assisted Dunlop discs all round; inboard at the rear. The steering was a rack and pinion system by Alford and Alder. Though the 4.2-litre engine had more torque than its predecessor, an increase in both gearing and bodyweight meant the performance of these later S1 cars was very similar to the 3.8-litre versions. Production figures vary slightly depending on the source, but approximately 7,770 4.2-litre Fixed Head Coupes were built between 1964 and 1968, only some 1,957 of which were right-hand drive. According to its accompanying Heritage certificate this original RHD car was despatched on March 12 1965 and supplied to Victor ltd, Belfast, Northern Ireland. At the time it was finished in opalescent dark green with suede green interior trim. In the 1990s, when the car was restored, this was changed to Carmine Red wi

  • We have again an excellent and desirable E-Type in stock. This matching nrs E-Type 3.8 OTS with chassisnr 875545 is an early "flat floor" car, manufactured on 15.09.1961 and delivered new in Belgium, so an original european version with compression ratio 8:1. The car stayed in the same family ownership until 1981, when a world famous belgian cartoonist purchased the car and had it completely nut-and-bolt restored by Phoenix Restorations. This restoration took almost three years, and is detailed with a huge file of invoices. The car was sold again in 1991 to its third owner, who kept the car in his summer residence in the South of France, where the car was dry stored and meticulously maintained. Today this car still looks absolutely stunning, and it is hard to believe it was restored more then 30 years ago. It is one of the very best E-types we ever had in stock. The engine runs very smooth, and is very powerful, the original Moss gearbox works great and suspension and brakes feel like on a new car. The body of the car is incredibly well restored, as we have never seen another E-Type with the same perfect shutlines. The interior is also completely retrimmed in the eighties, and has

  • With the original factory competition cars rare, tremendously difficult to source and just as challenging to finance, this is one of a handful of E-Types accepted by the discerning racing community as the next best thing. As such this car is accompanied by an MSA Historical Technical Passport – both certification of the car’s faithful specification and indeed a permit to compete in the greatest historic race meetings around the globe. Based on an original 1962 Series 1 3.8 Coupe, this competition E-Type was completed at great expense to a thoroughly competitive and yet faithful Competition Low Drag specification. RS Panels – the Competition E-Type authority – completed the all-aluminium Low Drag body to the original Malcolm Sayer design in 2010, with the no expense spared race preparation by MRM Engineering Services Ltd. As you’d expect the comprehensive specification includes a fully race prepared 3.8-litre engine, E-Type close-ratio gearbox with straight cut gears, limited-slip differential with cooler, full roll cage and long range fuel tank.

  • Built in November 1973, supplied new to Saville Motors in the following February and bought through an H.R. Owen this Jaguar E-Type found its first home with a most exacting customer. An account of his ownership present in the thoroughly comprehensive history file details the ‘horror’ at finding that 40 miles had been added to the odometer during the first service road test at Jaguar, and that someone other than himself had washed the car. Such fastidious care and attention for over 20 years meant that, when Mr. Taylor eventually parted with the V12 in 1995, approximately 6,000 warranted miles were on the odometer. A handful of equally attentive subsequent owners had preserved this car unbelievably when the car came to us for the first time some 5 years ago. As part of our bespoke upgrades service we supplied the car to its 5th and last owner with circa £20,000’s worth of our upgrades, which have brought the E-Type in line with our reliability-focused Classic specification. Many further options make the package wonderfully complete.

  • Built in May 1974, just a month before production ended, this handsome Series III Roadster was among the last Jaguar E-Types built. Originally destined for a life in the USA far from Browns Lane, this Roadster was repatriated in 1990 and bought by the Jaguar Chairman William Hayden. It seemed only fitting that Jaguar’s top brass should own the very best example the marque’s most famous model and Mr Hayden had the car re-commissioned by the specialists at Vicarage. An important part of the comprehensive and documented work included establishing the authenticity of the odometer, which at that stage read just 6,000 miles. After a forensically detailed inspection, it was proven to be ‘without a shadow of doubt true and correct.’ Thoroughly gone through and superbly refinished in the original white paintwork, complemented charmingly by the dark blue leather interior, the E-Type stands today in still remarkable condition having accumulated just 5,000 more miles under Mr Hayden’s ownership.

  • As one-half of a matching pair commissioned for an important international car collection, this Eagle SuperSport Roadster has experienced only the very highest standards of care since we completed it a number of years ago. Our brief for Eagle 25 was to fulfil every one of our upgrade packages, checking every box, and ultimately arriving at our SuperSport specification. The extensive list of upgrades, which includes our fuel injected 4.7-litre engine conversion, 5-speed gearbox and sports suspension geometry, can be seen here . An Eagle E-Type can only be defined as such once it has been fully restored to better than brand new and fitted with our bespoke upgrades. One obvious but important decision in this unique commissioning process is the colour. For this Eagle the classic hue of Opalescent Silver Blue was chosen to match the Biscuit leather interior and sports seats. The spectacular image is capped by a Navy mohair hood and accompanying hood bag. While a significant part of the previous owner’s collection, his intercontinental lifestyle left time to enjoy this fabulous car to a minimum.

  • This beautiful original UK matching numbers E Type has an interesting history. The first owner took the car off the road in the early 80s and sent it to be restored in the 90s. The restorer stripped the car down completely but failed to do any further work. The parts were then given to a second company in December 1999, who took stock of all the parts but found there were items missing. They also found that the bonnet and engine frames were damaged and required replacement. The bodywork restoration was completed to primer stage by October 2001.There are a series of photographs showing the various stages of the bodywork restoration along with invoices for all the new panels, bonnet and frames. Unfortunately after many delays the restoration company went into liquidation and work was unfinished. The second owner bought the car in its dismembered state and transported it to his workshop in Spain, where the work was completed to a high standard. The work was carried out over a two year period and is fully documented, with a full photographic record. The car travelled only a further 250 miles of road testing during this period, before the third owner purchased it in 2013. Enhanced by Co
