This first series Jaguar E-Type was built on April 1965 and delivered on September 1965 by
the American Jaguar distributor in New York. As originally produced, this roadster is in old english white, the interior
is black matching the roof. In addition, it is matching numbers, engine and body.
A complete restoration have been made during these last 10 years.
The Series 1 was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961. The domestic market launch came four months later in July 1961.
The cars at this time used the triple SU-carburetted 3.8-litre six-cylinder XK6 engine from the XK150S which was capable
of 150mph at a time when the typical family saloon could barely manage half that speed.
Earlier built cars utilised external bonnet latches which required a tool to open and had a flat floor design.
These cars are rare and more valuable. After that, the floors were dished to provide more leg room and the
twin bonnet latches moved to inside the car. The 3.8-litre engine was increased to 4.2 litres (4,235 cc) in October 1964.
The Jaguar E-type turned heads, broke records and created a legend all of its own. Even today the E-Type is considered
to be one of the most beautiful cars ever built.
