1968 Jaguar E-Type Roadster
‘The one to have’. We have owned many many E Types and this is the one to own. Series 1 4.2 litre is the perfect blend of usability and original early model style.
This car is a rare original right hand drive car retaining its correct chassis and original registration. It is probably not the original engine but it is the correct type.
The car was restored around the millennium in the style of a period E type race car. If the E Type is as agreed the most beautiful and sleek car ever made then this is the naked interpretation of that stunning shape. The chrome bumpers where removed and seams skilfully removed too. The effect is a very sleek and quite stunning shape denuded of glitz, glitter and jewellery in favour of a pure stunning ‘naked’ shape. We have pictured the car next to our ex Tony Shaw racer and the cars complement each other perfectly.
The restoration in this form would have been a very expensive affair. The quality is confirmed after all these years the car presents without fault. The bodywork is blemish free and the panel fit perfect.
Mechanically the engine holds excellent oil pressure and there are numerous upgrades to improve braking, cooling and general reliability. The car sits well on C Type peg wheels and Pirelli Cinturato tyres.
The trim has that well used favourite pair of shoes feel. Some may refurbish the interior. Others would love it just the way it is.
Supplied with the car is a JDHT confirming the cars status as an original RHD car carrying its original number plate. The colour was changed during the last restoration. The original colour was white with red trim.
There are MOT’s back to the 1980’s and a huge file of bills supporting the restoration and maintenance of this car.
Coming to the market for the first time in 15 years and sold with a fresh MOT and 12month warranty this series 1 4.2 E Type looks beautiful and engages the driver in a quite intoxicating way that only the E Type can.
We love it.
