A good example of the desirable Jaguar E-type Series 1 3,8 Litre is increasingly difficult to find. This model is the most sought after version, due to its pure design with the beautiful aluminium dashboard panels and good looking bucket seats.
This example was sold new in France in 1963, and remained with the first owner until 2008. This Parisian medicine covered a mere 71.600 kilometres with the car from new. He had it repainted in white in 1971, and the car was mechanically restored in 2003. The actual owner bought the car in an auction in 2008, and had the car completely restored. It was then repainted in its original colour Opalescent Silver Grey, and the interior as retrimmed in tan hide. The engine was overhauled again, and suspension and brakes were rebuilt. It sits now on slightly wider 6x15 wheels with Avon CR6ZZ road tyres, and it looks absolutely fantastic. It is of course a matching nrs european specification E-Type, which makes it very desireable. The car has now only 72.170 km on the clocks, which is quite remarkable for a 53 years old Jaguar.
The Jaguar E-Type in its purest form is a gorgeous sportscar, and even Enzo Ferrari called it the most beautiful car in the w
