Sellers description:
Few cars can boast being an Amelia Island example - either on the field or across the sales lanes. Offered by RM at Amelia in 2007 says volumes about this 1966 Jaguar Series 1's superior quality. Since then this car has been parked alongside Lambos in private New York collection. Just thoroughly refreshed by us - and spectacular in every detail - we proudly present this matching numbers, original colors, concours example of the one the world's most sought after classics for your investment consideration.

The Ivory paint seems so creamy smooth and deep that you could overlook the car's equally perfect red leather interior. Every spec of chrome and detail is virtually flawless The glass is perfect. The top and its frame are perfect and fit perfectly to windshield frame - no windage or leaks! (That's unique!)

Underneath, every fitting is correct and authentic. Each mechanical component is the right color and has right detail, fit and function. The pans are painted; not coated.

Note the engine bay and front suspension; from perfect ceramic heads to the washer bottle, every wire, strap, clamp and part is as new.

Yes, this is a truly concours JCNA Heritage Trust certified, matching numbers, original color Series 1.

Several Series 1's changed collections during Amelia Island, Monterey and other premier venues this year. None were superior to this just-finished example. Several sold for over $160,000 making this one a real bargain!

Auction description:
Lot S152 Monterey 2016 Aug 18-20
Color White
Interior Maroon
VIN/Serial 1E12880
Estimate $175,000 - $200,000

Comprehensive restoration
Believed to be 46,134 miles
4.2L 6-cylinder engine
Triple side-draft carburetors
4-speed manual transmission
4-wheel disc brakes
Desirable White with Maroon leather interior
Wood steering wheel
Chrome wire wheels

This 1966 Jaguar E-Type Roadster underwent a comprehensive restoration for a return to its mid-Sixties status and shows a believed to be accurate 46,134 miles on the odometer. The 4.2L 6-cylinder DOHC engine was factory rated for 265 horsepower at 5,400 RPM and 245 lb-ft of torque further down in the engine speed range of 3,000 RPM. Triple SU side-draft carburetors and Lucas ignition supplied fuel and spark. The engine is backed by a 4-speed all-synchromesh manual transmission driving the rear wheels. The fully independent suspension starts with a multi-tube front with coil springs double a-arms and chassis mounted rear differential working with quad coil springs and lower wishbones for assured road tracking. Front disc brakes join inboard rear discs for confident braking from 150 MPH top speed. Finished in a desirable white exterior with maroon leather interior the E-type roadster is an outstanding example of English performance innovation and traditional hand-built craftsmanship. Gossamer thin bumpers and lightweight engineering shaved off hundreds of pounds over the preceding Jaguar models. The well-appointed interior is centered by a pair of restored deep-cushioned leather low-back bucket seats over plush carpeting. The three spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel is mounted on a height and reach adjustable steering column. A chrome finish upswept rear center exit dual exhaust is a fitting complement to the chrome wire wheels with Jaguar logo winged knock-offs.
