WPCS 2.1.0
 

The most recognisable classic sports car of all time and what many believe is the best of the breed, offered here is arguably one of the finest 1967 Series 1 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 litre Roadster’s in the country.

Offering cutting edge four-wheel independent suspension that was so well conceived it would be used by Jaguar for the next 30 years, and a timeless design declared the “most beautiful ever made” by Enzo Ferrari, on its launch the E-Type delivered one of those rare instances where an end product actually out-gunned marketing hype.

Constantly evolving, in 1965 the E-Type’s gearbox became fully synchronised while the seat backs became adjustable.
 
A new brake booster was also adopted, and the engine was enlarged to 4.2 litres giving the car more usable torque and improved tractability. Importantly, the car retained its “pure” form, with no external changes being made but it was now more comfortable and more engaging on the road.

Subject to meticulous and sympathetic restoration by Concours Sportscar Restorations, Sydney that spanned 4 years between 2013-2017 this car is an original Series 1 4.2 litre Jaguar E-Type manual Roadster.

Originally ordered in Opalescent Golden Sand over Black leather with contrasting Black soft-top, corresponding with its Heritage Certificate this exquisite car was sold new by Jaguar Cars, New York in March of 1967 to a Doctor based in Sacramento, California.

What would have to be one of the finest, most exacting restorations CTS has seen, this car is in remarkable and truly authentic condition.

Importantly, this cars exterior still features its original chrome bumpers, TripleX headlight covers incredibly with the original Lucas headlights still fitted inside, the correct wire wheels are fitted with new Pirelli Cinturato tyres and the electronically matched to original specification paintwork is flawless. So too is the panel fit and finish.

Under the bonnet, finer details like the original plastic wiring clips have been painstakingly re-fitted, every original spot-weld is still visible, the correct rubber hoses, riveted rubber stoppers, “Made In England” badges and ceramic coated headers all present with a spotless factory finish. Small details that underscore just how well this car has been restored, even the factory original jack was carefully refurbished, a level of detail rarely seen.

Inside the spitfire-esque cockpit, the original vinyl lined crush pile carpets have been artfully fitted, the hand stitched leather seat trims are supple, the original Smiths instrumentation is crystal clear with the “Important!” decal still stuck to the speedometer. The toggle switch gear is rifle like in action, the original Blaupunkt stereo has been restored and refitted, the door card trims, centre console and dash fit is near perfect with a matte finish and the general feeling inside is like sitting in a brand new E-Type on a Bryson’s showroom floor back in 1967.

This time capsule classic is also accompanied by an original Periodic Maintenance Booklet, Operating and Service Handbook as well as the original jack, tool-kit and copper/hyde hammer wrapped in their separate vinyl holdalls and the original keys.

An absolute credit to its last custodian and an undeniable asset to the next this incredibly collectable and peerless Series 1 4.2 litre E-Type carries international appeal.

A stunning colour combination and in excellent running and driving condition, with E-Type demand and values on the up and up around the world, this rare and very original find would make a welcomed addition to any garage or established collection and would suit the most discerning enthusiast.
