Triumphantly launched at the March 1961 Geneva Salon, Jaguar’s ‘150mph’ E-Type was the sports car that (a) put the swinging into the ‘swinging sixties’, (b) no lesser a man than Enzo Ferrari dubbed ‘the most beautiful car in the world’, and (c) transported a galaxy of stars from Brigitte Bardot to George Best, Tony Curtis to Donald Campbell and Roy Orbison to Steve McQueen. Though not designed as a racer, the E-Type was nevertheless a direct descendent of the all-conquering D-Type and thus had motorsport embedded in its DNA. Equipped with all-round independent suspension, rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes, its handling and roadholding proved more than a match for most rivals. Just one month from launch Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori drove the Equipe Endeavour E-Type (‘ECD 400’) to victory at Oulton Park and some fifty-six years later the model remains a force to be reckoned with in historic racing. Updated during August 1964, the Jaguar gained a larger 4235cc XK DOHC straight-six engine and more user-friendly manual gearbox with synchromesh on each of its four forward speeds. Thankfully, the Big Cat’s beautiful styling remained unaltered until the introduction of the so-called Series 1.5 cars during September 1967 by which time just 1,583 RHD E-Type 4.2 Fixed Head Coupes were made.

One of just 1 of 1,583 right-hand drive 4.2 Fixed Head Coupes, ‘DXJ’ had previously been cherished in a 31 year long-term ownership from 1988 until September, 2019 and was the owners ‘pride and joy’, which included lots of shows and rallies with press articles about the car included in the history file.

Presenting in British Racing Green and displaying some 123,450 credible miles from new, the E-Type is said to present with an excellent body and engine. Indeed, at an undetermined date, ‘DXJ’ benefitted from a restoration with photographs included in the history file evidencing the restoration that took place. Other work included the servicing of the carburettors in 2015. In current ownership ‘DXJ 513C’ has received a repaint and new set of wire wheels.

Documentation includes a workshop manual, many invoices, a collection of invoices specifically from SNG Barrett and a collection of old MOT related paperwork in some instances dating back to 1987, evidencing an odometer reading of 99,090 miles in 1994 plus current V5c document.
