A very striking classic, that would describe E-type nicely. Elegant, sporty, and with plenty of class. Regarded by many as the most beautiful car ever built, and although we find that to be a bold statement, we understand only too well that some people are of that opinion. The Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Series 1 Coupe we see here is the first series, built in April 1962, delivered to Texas in 1963. It is a very original specimen, still retaining 80% of its original paint and fully “matching” numbered.
This is a highly original early and previously unknown to the market E-Type, which comes with all the necessary documentation, a car wallet with all the booklets and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.
The word ‘original’, mentioned earlier, also applies to the interior. Beautiful and completely original. Stunning to look at and in great working order. The wonderful original leather seats have developed a very fine patina, and other parts, such as the fabric of its carpets and headliner, are all in splendid condition.
The well-maintained dashboard is original and fits in nicely with the overall appearance of the interior. The bodywork is in good condition with clean sheet metal and correct alignment. This warm red colour is also the car’s original finish. The car’s brightwork is by and large original and in very good condition, naturally showing an expected amount of age-related wear. The same applies to the chrome wire wheels.
The main mechanical feature is a 3.8-liter straight-six engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The engine produces 265 hp and is equipped with three carburettors. It is an incredibly impressive engine that not only sounds beautiful but also runs smoothly through the rev range. In addition, the car has double wishbones at the front and independent rear suspension. The driving characteristic of the E-type can only be described as being very good. In short, this very original E-type is a timeless beauty in delightful condition and a true survivor!
