  • 1 of just 1,070 RHD examples made
  • Current ownership since 1981 and stored in the same garage for around forty years
  • 38,668 recorded and credible miles (having been off the road since at least 1981)
  • Requiring full restoration or suitable for parts

Triumphantly unveiled at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Type created a furore thanks to its supercar performance, stunning looks and modest price tag. Early racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others helped cement the newcomer's reputation. Built as a monocoque with an engine cradling front sub-frame, the E-Type's combination of all-around independent suspension and disc brakes allied to rack-and-pinion steering resulted in excellent road-holding and handling capabilities. The indomitable straight-six XK twin-cam engine supplied abundant power. A continual programme of E-Type development that saw the model metamorphose through three Series. Introduced in 1968, the Series II cars were distinguishable by their revised bumper and light arrangements. Less noticeable was the increased size of the front air intake that in conjunction with dual cooling fans made the Series II better behaved in hot weather and heavy traffic. With its 4235cc engine developing a quoted 265bhp and 283lbft of torque, it was reputedly capable of nearly 150mph and 0-60mph in 7.5 seconds.

Manufactured in 1970, this E-Type fixed-head-coupe was supplied new to the United Kingdom in right-hand-drive configuration and was registered new in the same year. Fitted with the 4.2-litre straight-six engine allied with the four-speed manual transmission, the E-Type was originally finished in Green before being changed to the White that the car is presented in today. The Jaguar entered into its current ownership in 1981 as a project, being stored in the same garage for the subsequent forty years awaiting a restoration that never materialised. Offered with a recorded mileage of a mere 38,668 miles, the mileage is thought credible having been off the road since at least 1981. Requiring either a comprehensive restoration or suitable for part supply, the Jaguar is accompanied by a blue V5 document, although is not showing with the DVLA on HPI, and thus the new keeper will have to apply with the DVLA for a new V5C document.
