Sellers comment:
Series 1 Jaguar E-type Fixed Head Coupe, MANUAL TRANSMISSION. It is taxed and MOT'd until August 2004, although the tax in the UK is free. I bought the car last summer but have found I am not using it so after much expense, it is now for sale. This is a genuine British RHD car with matching numbers and a valuable number plate which is also original. In the last few months I have replaced the Head Gasket, Exhaust, Staarter Motor, Alternator, Radiator, Cooling Fan, Battery, Brake discs and pads, Clutch components etc. Bodily the car is excellent although you will notice from the photos that the rear lights have been changed at some point to be replaced with those off of a V12 e-type. I don't know why this was done and can offer no explanation. Oil pressure is excellent and the car does not overheat even in intense traffic. The fan I had fitted is of a Kenlowe type and it is wired to operate from a switch on the dash rather than a thermostat. The interior is okay but the drivers seat has some stitching coming undone on one of the seams and the underneath is a bit tatty with foam exposed. The interior light does not work nor does the cigar lighter.

I had the chance to buy this car from Bob Johnson (dealer) for £9,000 before the current owner but decided against it when I put my thumb through the bodywork whilst getting out.

Car to be at auction 10/17
www.coys.co.uk/cars/1965-jaguar-e-type-series-1

Auction description:
Lot 326 - 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1
To Semi-Lightweight Roadster Specification
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number IE20883
Year 1965
Make Jaguar
Model E-Type Series 1

This beautiful matching numbers UK- delivered example had been subject to a "nut and bolt" rebuild to Semi-Lightweight specification, which was completed to a very high standard. The body was rebuilt and finished by Brian Wilkinson of Zealia Engineering, very well known and highly regarded for his accurate recreations of the factory Lightweight cars.

During the build the doors, boot, bonnet and roof were replaced with lightweight aluminium items, and both side and rear windows replaced with Perspex screens. As in period, the correct air vents were added to the roof and boot, and the wheel-arches extended with correct extensions as per Le Mans regulations. Finally, aluminium buckets seats, clad in period-correct blue leather, were fitted to the interior, whilst a set of magnesium knock-off wheels complete the exterior of the car.

Mechanically the E-Type enjoyed many race-orientated upgrades. Notably the original 4.2 litre motor was fully rebuilt and mated to triple Weber carburettors, breathing through a stainless steel free-flowing manifold and full stainless exhaust. Twin fuel pumps were fitted, in addition to an oil cooler, breather tank and aluminium radiator to improve engine cooling. The braking system was also upgraded and the suspension was also improved with a new adjustable setup.

This wonderful E-Type has been completed to an exceptionally high standard, is licenced for the road and presented in truly outstanding condition. So much so that the car won "Best In Class" at the Warren Concours in 2016, and was invited to be displayed at the Hampton Court Concours in September 2017.

With c.5,000 miles recorded since completion, this is an extremely fast, well balanced car with upgrades that inspire confidence to drive the car at ten tenths. A mouthwatering prospect for the E-Type enthusiast and an amazing road car for any keen driver. Chassis IE20883 will be offered with a current UK MoT certificate, UK V5 document and Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
