1967 E-Type OTS (Roadster)
Chassis 1 E 15082 Engine 7 E 12726-9 Gearbox EJ 13826 Body 4E 6829
Opalescent silver green with 'New' Tan leather interior. Car is one owner from new with less than 58,000 miles. Have original sales documents. Bought from Hempstead Auto in Hempstead, NY, July 28, 1967, by Howard Sargent who was a pilot in the Air Force. The car spent most of its life in the California desert as its owner was stationed at Edwards Air Force Base. The car has had 1 very good exterior repaint at some time. Paint is in very good condition - looks like a few small drops of brake fluid dripped on louvers on left, causing a few small blemishes (only noticeable with close inspection).
The seats were redone in correct leather from BAS, the Jaguar interior supplier in 1997. I have the original seat covers that actually are in very good condition, other than a crack in the drivers seat. The armrests were recovered and new carpet floor mats installed. (I have the original passenger floor carpet and it is in good condition). The rest of the interior is original and other than 2 cracks in the top dash and a crack in the gearshift boot, it is very nice with the original radio. The top and hood envelope are in very good condition and it comes with a tonneau cover. The car also comes with a period fiberglass hardtop in black vinyl.
The car comes with all its books and records, full original tool roll, jack in bag and Thor hammer. Wire wheels are in good condition with good tires. Chrome is original and all in good condition. There is no rust in the car and no evidence of any damage ever. All the fits of doors, bonnet and boot lid are excellent. The underneath of the car is in great condition as well.
Mechanically the car is very tight feeling. The engine starts easily from cold, idles well. Feels very strong on acceleration and holds very good oil pressure. Gauges, lights, wipers, turn signal, heater, radio all work well. The washer switch is hooked up to turn on the radiator fan, but the washer bottle is there and should work. There are straight pipes in the rear of the exhaust system without the chrome resonators.
The car just overall runs, drives and feels the way it should. This is one of those rare unmolested car’s that is just the way the factory intended it to be. The new owner should derive many years of pleasure from the automobile.

Car to be at auction 8/14
1967 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES 1 4.2-LITER ROADSTER
Chassis no. 1E15082
Engine no. 7E12726-9
US$ 100,000 - 130,000
£59,000 - 76,000
According to this E-Type's Heritage Trust Certificate, it was dispatched from the Browns Lane Jaguar works in March of 1967. Denoted as a left hand drive Series 1 Roadster, this car is one of the last Series 1 cars built, and one of the very first to receive the transitional Series 1 ½ headlight treatment, dubbing it a Series 1 ¼ among Jaguar aficionados. The E-Type was finished in British Racing Green over a tan Connolly interior, fitted with a black soft top, and destined for Jaguar Cars of New York, where Mr. Howard F. Sargent of Goldsbow, North Carolina became the car's first owner in July 1967.
Howard Sargent, an Air Force pilot, is believed to have kept the Jaguar for decades in California while stationed at Edwards Air Force Base. The car later migrated to Salt Lake City, Utah, where its second owner offered it for sale in 2004. Dr. Matthew Sell of Boise, Idaho found the highly original, 58,000 mile E-Type, and soon added it to his growing collection of European sports cars of the highest quality, where it has remained since.
Dr. Sell entered the car in the 2004 Portland, Oregon Concours d'Elegance, where second place honors were bestowed upon the green 'survivor' E-Type, and he also drove it on the 2005 Going to the Sun Rally in Montana, where the fast Jaguar could stretch its legs. The E-Type was toured again in 2008, this time on the Red Rock Rally in Utah.
With fewer than 64,000 miles from new today, this extraordinarily well-kept and highly original E-Type impresses even the most discerning collectors. With the exception of one exterior repaint and replacement of the seat covers and carpets, the Jaguar remains original throughout. The factory-applied paint can still be found in compartments and jams, and door panels, dash, gauges, chrome and bright work all have a wonderful light patina. Fitted with a period Motorola radio, the E-Type is accompanied by the original seat covers and carpets (still in great shape), the original weather equipment, books and original warranty card, tools and Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate. A more original and better-preserved E-Type will be difficult to find anywhere.
