About this Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster

According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate that accompanies this E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster it was delivered by Jaguar Cars New York on 18 May 1962 as a Left Hand Drive car and then made its home in California where, it is believed, the car spent the next fifty or so years. In 2014 it was acquired from the USA for repatriation and we have on file the United Kingdom HM Revenue and Customs letter showing that on 27th August 2014 the Imported Vehicle clearance checks had been satisfied. We understand that very soon after repatriation the process of restoring this car began. On file are a very large number of documents and invoices that relate to this work. Once complete the expenditure had exceeded £50,000. The schedules of work undertaken would suggest that the base structure of the car was good. In summary, work included a full strip down and deep clean of the car, bare metal repaint, re-trim, new wire wheels. Electromechanical works included, suspension and brake rebuild, engine strip down and overhaul and much more work that it is all very well documented, to the extent that all hours spent have been accounted for. In August 2016 we attended to the right hand drive conversion and some minor shake down works for the first private keeper in the UK. This beautiful E-Type is finished in superb metallic silver, with a black leather interior and black mohair hood. In our opinion a combination that suits the E-Type very well and this car looks fabulous from every angle. The rarity and drivability of all 3.8 Litre Series 1 E-Types mean they that remain the most desirable for enthusiasts of the marque. This splendid example, will give a lot of joy to its next proud keeper and if the historic climb in values have been a reliable indicator it should also be a sound investment.
