Jaguar E-Type

car description

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 4.2 Litre Series 1 FHC was built on 1st June 1966 and dispatched to Jaguar of Eastern Canada where its first owner, Arnold F Urech, resided. It was originally finished in the beautiful colour combination of Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior, the car still retains its original 4.2 XK engine and 4-speed synchro gearbox meaning it is fully matching numbers.

This Canadian-supplied FHC E-Type is available for purchase as a restoration project finished to your exact specification, all work carried out by E-Type UK. The car is currently a sand-blasted shell, awaiting metalwork. To view other customer cars restored by us please visit the “Restoration” page on our website.
