(SOLD) This incredible, first-generation XKE outside bonnet latch roadster is currently under restoration to the highest standards of show-level correctness! It's not every day that a first generation E-Type with such a high degree of patina, originality, and sought-after features like flat floors and welded louvers comes along, but Classic Showcase has found such a car, and are very excited about restoring such a rare and unique piece of Jaguar history. This 1961 XKE roadster is number 331 in early E-type production history, and has a mere 10K original driving miles; Having benefited from being stored in a warehouse for 40 years, the E-Type has kept virtually all of it's originality intact, with the minor exception of a coat of red paint applied during the early course of its driving life.

Included in the restoration process, the vehicle has been dissembled, and the interio
