The Jaguar E Type was the direct successor to the legendary D Type and replaced the XK120, XK140 and XK150 line in March 1961. Initially, the futuristic-looking E Type S1 monocoque had the 265bhp 3781cc 6-cylinder motor underbonnet, as used in the final XK150s in fact, with independent suspension and disc brakes all round. Open 2-seater roadster or fixed head coupe versions were offered, first with headlamps faired into the nose, but later set into the wings behind flat glasses as on the S2. Those early E Type owners could enjoy 150mph performance for less than ú2100 - by comparison, the DB4 from rival Aston Martin cost a thumping ú3755!
The Manchester owner tells us that he has owned his 1967-built E Type for 25 years and that the S1 1/2 4.2 roadster has always been garaged during that time. The 75,141 miles displayed on the odometer when entered for this sale is claimed to be the genuine total driven since this right-hand drive UK market car with manual transmission left Jaguar's Coventry factory.
The clutch has been renewed, he says, the chrome wire wheels original and the hardtop factory-supplied. The bodywork is said to be both original and good, the white paint fair and black interior reportedly good, too, and the 4.2-litre 6-cylinder XK engine and 4-speed gearbox in good order. The vendor also informs us that it comes with an immobiliser and the original Radiomobile eight track with tapes. E Types are great value and so good looking.

I was the purchaser of this car at the above mentioned auction and still own it today. She is currently undergoing a ground up restoration and will hopefully be a concourse example by mid 2013. The shell is amazingly solid and a credit to the previous owner who had it for 25 years and thanks to many litres of cavity wax etc there were no real "nightmare " shocks when we dismantled it just evidence of poor quality welding in a few minor areas which have now been totally rebuilt with new panels.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
