Background

In early 1961, on a misty Belgian motorway between Antwerp and Herenthal, a young motoring journalist called Peter Riviere strapped himself into a prototype sports car and hurtled down the motorway in front of assembled journalists. His average speed for the run was 150.4 mph and the car was a hand built forerunner of the Jaguar E type and when it was launched to the public later in the year, no other car could come close to matching its performance or price. So the legend of the E type began.

Launched with a 3.8 litre engine driving through a 4 speed gearbox, the monocoque stressed steel body was supported by a front suspension of independent wishbones and torsion bars with Girling gas cell dampers. At the rear, independent lower wishbones and fixed length drive shafts and longitudinal radius arms combined with twin coil spring and Girling gas cell telescopic dampers at each side. Steering was Alford and Alder rack and pinion.

Recognised even by the great Enzo Ferrari as one of the most beautiful cars ever built, the Jaguar E Type developed over the years with increasing engine sizes and different models.

The Series II cars were introduced in 1968 driven by demands from the important US market – larger seats, wrap around rear bumpers, different carburation, different indicators and gone forever, the distinctive cowled headlamps.

Summary:

As the magazines say, there is no shortage of E-Types on the market – what there is a shortage of are exceptional and original cars.

With its Jaguar Heritage Certificate backed up by a clear provenance and history, this is an exceptional car – circumstance has meant that in 40 years of existence, it has only really had a little over 20 years of use and it is presented in outstanding condition. One to buy!

Vehicle History

Historic export sales mean that the market sees far more left-hand drive versions of these E types on the market – either converted or still left-hand drive. The history folder for this car includes a copy of the original folding log book and this notes the car’s first registration in the city of Sheffield to a Mr Dennis Greaves on the 7th November 1968.

That same document notes that the car was originally Beige but that is crossed out on the document and the single word Red replaces it. That is because the second registered keeper, Malcolm Roberts, also of Sheffield had the car repainted in Rolls Royce Regal Red.

The car remained in the Sheffield area until 1989 when it was purchased from a Mr Neil Gavins by a friend from Surrey, Cobham based Bob Room. Taking delivery of the car, Bob put it in his garage………..and there it stayed for a long time. Taking up a year long assignment in Australia, the E type was put on stands under a purpose made cover. A house move, business commitments, not one but two hip replacements and a heart attack all contrived to keep Bob away from the car until February 2013 when, even knowing that he would not be able to properly get in the car, let alone drive and enjoy it, he undertook a recommissioning project with a mechanic friend.

The car was then acquired in September 2016 by the current owner, another Surrey based enthusiast, whose garage already had an Aston Martin V8 Volante and a Jaguar XK140 for the E-Type to share space with.
