We have a 1964 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 series 1. In 1964 it was supplied from new in the USA, later to be sold on to a Norwegian E-Type enthusiast. He commissioned a full mechanical overhaul and restoration by a Swedish Jaguar specialist. We can see the restoration was carried out to a very thorough and professional standard.

Both the bodywork and chassis were taken back to bare metal. With the hood down the detailed fashion of the work immediately becomes clear. The resprayed chassis has been colour-coded with the supporting struts left blanc as it should. After the groundwork was done the car was resprayed in wonderful “Old English White”. The external finish contrasts beautifully with the red leather trim. Both bodywork and paintwork are still in great condition. The wire wheels have been re-chromed and also look great.

The interior was fully reupholstered. Before the car was reupholstered, Dynamat soundproofing was laid down. These matts not only reduce cabin noise but also shield against engine and exhaust heat. Furthermore the are well fitting red carpets and red leather seating as well as a completely refurbished boot space. The dashboard was also refurbished and presents fabulously. All instruments and controls are in very good working order.

We still have the original engine in situ, making this a matching numbers example. During the restoration the 3.8 litre straight-six was fully rebuilt and is in peak condition. The engine is attached to the manual 4-speed gearbox. The engine runs smoothly and the gear change is precise. With braking and suspension up to scratch to a high degree, contributing to the Jaguar’s pleasant road handling on offer.

A photo album is included with the car’s itinerary. This is not just a pretty Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Fixed Head Coupé but a total joy to drive.
