This car was originally built for the USA market having been supplied to Jaguar Cars in New York in 1965 and then returned to the UK in 1990. It is a matching numbers car, presented in its original black livery exterior as authenticated by Jaguar Heritage. The light blue/grey interior colour complements the exterior well having been amended during the restoration undertaken by Ivydene Garage in the 1990’s. Once the restoration was complete the car was then first registered in the UK in 2001. During the period of restoration, the car was converted to right hand drive for a fastidious UK purchaser and has remained in its current excellent condition ever since. There is a service history file for the car showing regular maintenance by its present owner who is a member of the JDC, confirming that during his ownership the car has always been kept in dry storage and much enjoyed over the summer months only. This fine example displays superb panel fit and the car drove beautifully on a recent outing. This car is available to view in our showroom at our new location in Beaulieu, Hampshire. We would recommend you contact us by calling 01590 610929 to arrange a convenient time to view this car.
A fine example of an original UK supplied, matching numbers Series 1 E-type coupe, finished in its original factory colours, Opalescent Dark Green with a Suede Green interior with all the correct period features present. A full nut and bolt restoration carried out by New Forest Classic Cars with our Fast Road specification makes this car the ideal E-type for today's roads. The new owner will be able to enjoy driving this car and benefit from the subtle, sympathetic enhancements our Fast Road specification offers including a 5 speed gearbox and handling upgrades. This beautiful E-type is set-up for the discerning driver who appreciates the difference in quality. The original 4 speed Moss-box has been retained and available with the car. We would strongly recommend a visit to our new showroom in Beaulieu to view this car. *Please note that the car is photographed with powder-coated wire wheels. The car currently features chrome wire wheels whilst on display but either finish is available. The car is also photographed with our bespoke handcrafted coupe luggage which is available at an additional cost.
