We are proud to offer this immaculate 3.8 Series 1 E-Type. It has recently been subjected
to a complete restoration that left no part untouched and no fastener unturned. The
utmost care was put in to ensuring that the vehicle looks and performs better than new.
The paint finish and panel fitment is exact and the Suffolk & Turley interior is
exquisite. The suspension and driveline perform flawlessly. Sporting a complete tool
kit and original owners manual, this car is ready to show!
This car has come to us from Indiana, where at some point, the engine was treated to
upgrades from the legendary Gran Turismo Jaguar dealership. Upon disassembly of the
motor, it was discovered that the intakes and cylinder head have been ported and the cam
shafts are custom ground. It also revealed high compression Venolia pistons, a
GTJ high flow oil pump, a thicker vibration dampener, and a GTJ aluminum flywheel. Behind
the flywheel is a fully synchronized 4 speed transmission. All of these period upgrades
from such a well renowned shop make this car truly unique.
An aluminum radiator and thermostatic activated electric fan have been added to ensure
the engine remains at a comfortable temperature whether cruising or in traffic. The
distributor is electronic to provide reliability along with the in tank fuel pump.
The original generator has been removed in favor of a Lucas alternator
The suspension has all been rebuilt with new bushings, bearings and seals. The
control arms, brackets and fasteners have all been re-plated using the correct clear
cadmium or black oxide finish for an authentic appearance. The brakes have been upgraded
to the later 4.2 style for improved performance using stainless steel brakes lines. The
center laced spoke wheels give the car a much improved stance.
The interior has been professionally recovered in using the finest materials from
Suffolk & Turley. From the original steering wheel to the correct barrel shaped seats and
aluminum “Dot” trim, this cabin a work of art. The floor pans and bulkhead were
covered with modern sound deadener to give this car the feel of quality it deserves.
The body has been gapped and massaged to better than new fitment. The basecoat/clearcoat
finish shines deep and rich. The original corner lights and trim were re-chromed to
ensure an exacting fit. The bumpers have been upgraded with stainless steel copies,
meaning there will never be a problem with bubbling or pitting. The underbody and wheel
wells have been covered in stone guard so that the car may be enjoyed without fear of
