In the early 1960s, soon after their three consecutive Le Mans
wins, Jaguar set out to build a road going production variant of
the famed D-Type race car. In March of 1961, the E-Type (XKE) was
released in two styles, the Fixed Head Coup (FHD) and the Open Two
Seater (OTS). Upon it's unveiling, Enzo Ferrari called it ''the
most beautiful car ever made''. Finished in its original
combination of Carmen Red over a luscious black leather interior,
this series 1 E-Type has done only 44,291 miles since new. Having
been limited to three owners, the car has been meticulously cared
for and has received a mechanical and cosmetic restoration. Due to
a leg injury, the standard manual transmission was swapped by the
third owner for a factory Jaguar automatic gearbox. This beautiful
example of the British icon, is ready to be enjoyed and driven for
many more miles. For more information, please contact Walt Grace
