1966 Jaguar E Type Roadster Series 1

This Series 1 4.2-litre Roadster was originally built for the American market and was supplied to Jaguar Cars in New York in 1966 before finding its first owner in Ohio.

The car remained in the US for the vast majority of its life before returning to the UK a few years ago (Circa Est 2005) and was then subject to a complete restoration, with the engine rebuilt by Swallow Engineering, and also accurately converted to right-hand drive. The full details of the restoration and engine build are contained in two large A4 folders along with the Jaguar Heritage Certificate.

The car finally returned to the road in 2010. Finished in a classic Jaguar Dark Blue with a fabulous Red interior. E-type engine bays tend to be well kept because access is comparatively easy, but this one looks exceptionally well. The car looks like it has hardly been used since the restoration, but it must have been. Recent replacement ball joints, rear radius bushes, and some other mechanical items were renewed at a cost of £3,007. Apart from its history file the Jaguar is accompanied by the owner's handbook, service manual, spares catalogue, jack, and wheel nut spanner.

The registration number appears to be transferable.

The vehicle last changed hands @ over £81,500 in 2017 and arguably E-Types have not decreased in value…. Probably the opposite!

Now back on the market due to lack of use.
