    Car to be at auction 6/14
    www.bonhams.com/auctions/21916/lot/369/

    Auction description:
    Lot 369¤
    1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Liter Roadster
    Chassis no.
    1E12683 Engine no. 7E12022-9

    Without reserve
    US$ 100,000 - 125,000
    £59,000 - 74,000

    This beautiful blue over grey E-Type Roadster is an excellent example of how great a vintage car can be with a few modern touches. Previously the subject of a $100,000 restoration in the early 1990s, it had suffered some accident damage when it was acquired by its penultimate owner, an experienced Jaguar restorer, in 2004. Looking to turn the car into more of an enjoyable driver rather than an out-and-out show car, the decision was made to restore the car with modern-day technology to alleviate the features most often negatively associated in the E-Type.

    The body was carefully gone through with any damaged sections replaced with brand new Martin Robey sheet metal and professionally welded to ensure tight fit and factory quality alignment. The finished body was stripped, professionally finished with two dual stage primer coats, four layers of PPG basecoat in brilliant blue, another four layers of PPG clearcoat, and finally wet sanded, polished and buffed. Inside, the interior was professionally finished and installed in grey hides, the steering wheel was replaced with a new Motolita 15" unit, and stereo was discretely fitted with an iPod jack. On top of it all, a new Stayfast canvas convertible top in navy with a matching black convertible boot cover was fitted.

    The engine, from a later Series II car but mechanically very similar to the 4.2 liter six that was originally fitted in the car, was professionally rebuilt and fitted with a new solid state SU fuel pump, distributor with electronic contacts, ceramic coated headers, and an ANSA exhaust system. Ahead of the motor was installed a modern, aluminum radiator built especially for E-Types which the rear differential was completely rebuilt with new bearings and gaskets and the shell powder coated. Between that and the engine, a 5-speed manual transmission from a Toyota Supra was fitted for crisp, fast shifting action and an extra gear for cruising.

    The drivetrain wasn't the only thing to receive attention, however. All six shocks were replaced with adjustable gas-filled pipes made just for the E-Type, Wilwood brake calipers gripped new pads and rotors, and new tires shod the freshly chromed rims.

    The work was completed in March of 2012, at which point the car was purchased by the vendor. Driven only 1,975 miles since the completion of the restoration, it is replete with its tools and owner's manual. The perfect car to hop in and enjoy, it is ready to provide open road pleasure to its next owner.
