This wonderfully restored example of the classic Series 1 E-Type retains its original matching numbers engine and is presented in striking Opalescent Maroon over Biscuit interior, and comes with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, restoration file, books and tools. This striking roadster was part of Classic Motorcars' founder's personal collection for several years before being purchased by a friend and collector in 2018. Over $6,000 was recently spent rebuilding the carburetors and on other mechanical refreshing. As the current owner is selling off some of his collection due to a relocation, we now offer this beautiful, well sorted Jaguar on his behalf.

On August 23rd, 1966, this elegant E-Type Roadster rolled off the Coventry assembly line, finished in Opalescent Dark Green paint over a Suede Green interior with a French Grey convertible top. The desirable left hand drive, covered-headlight Series 1 E-Type Roadster was fitted with Jaguar's 4.2-liter inline-six and the fully synchronized 4-speed manual transmission. Shortly after production, the new E-type was shipped to the United States, where it was sold through Jaguar Cars of New York to a Mr. Frank Spivey. It remains unclear for how long Mr. Spivey owned the E-Type, but it is believed that the car has had just three subsequent owners up until today.

In 2005 the Roadster received a comprehensive restoration by noted Jaguar specialist Lloyd Gillespie of Jacksonville, Florida. Utilizing genuine Jaguar parts wherever possible, the E-Type was treated to a rotisserie refurbishment of the bodywork, during which time the color combination was changed to the charming Opalescent Maroon over a Biscuit interior. Delicate modern enhancements were made to increase reliability, including installation of maintenance free electronic ignition, additional cooling fans, and a stainless steel exhaust system, new wiring harness, rebuilt motor and upgraded suspension. . In 2014 the Jaguar benefitted from another mechanical freshening by the specialists at Predator Performance in Tampa, Florida.

In very fine condition throughout, the E-Type's brightwork and paint has a brilliant shine and the supple interior leather reflects a wonderful, lightly used look as this Jaguar has covered only about 3,000 miles since its restoration. This classic Series 1 E-Type still retains its original, numbers-matching engine block and cylinder head, as confirmed by the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate accompanying the car. Furthermore, a tool set and owner's manuals, as well as a comprehensive file documenting the car's restoration and service work accompany the sale. This very attractive 4.2-liter Series 1 E-Type Roadster would be a great candidate to show at JCNA events, or simply to enjoy on Sunday drives.
