The iconic Jaguar E-Type has a long history, with three series of the car produced over a period of 15 years. The British sports car was reputedly named the “most beautiful car in the world” by none other than Enzo Ferrari and is often considered to be one of, if not the most beautiful sports car of all time.
This extremely handsome example began life as a left-hand drive US model that was manufactured on October 24th 1963 and despatched to Jaguar Cars New York on November 11th. Having returned to the uk in the late 1990s, it was purchased by the noted St Helens-based Jaguar restorer Laurence Dyas, who proceeded to extensively restore the E-Type. The thorough refurbishment included the replacement of many panels, and a photographic record of the all the work carried out is available for inspection.
The completed car returned to the road in September 1997, since when the run of MOT certificates would suggest it has covered just 186 miles, winning several concours competitions in the process. A Jaguar Heritage certificate confirms the retention of the original engine and gearbox; also the original colour combination of Red bodywork and Tan leather upholstery.
This lovingly refurbished motorcar is now for sale with ourselves and can only be described as excellent. The bodywork, paintwork and interior trim are as good as you could imagine and the 3.8 litre six-cylinder XK engine with four-speed manual gearbox performs faultlessly.
A truly wonderful car. By far one of the nicest we have seen and above all else, a series one that is as useable as it is beautiful.
