1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 Coupe

The Amelia Auction 2024 | Estimate: $120,000 - $150,000

Chassis No. 1E30493

Engine No. 7E2304-9

According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate on file, this beautiful Series 1 E-Type was completed on 11 January 1965, configured as a left-hand drive Coupe originally finished in Dark Blue over Blue Connolly leather, and dispatched to Jaguar of Eastern Canada on 28 January. Although the first owner is not recorded on the Heritage Trust Certificate, the E-Type is reported to originally have been owned by motorcycle racer Bob Leppan, the co-owner of Detroit Triumph during the 1960s. Leppan, who remains famous today as the rider of the Alex Tremulus-designed “Gyronaut X1” Bonneville streamliner, set the US motorcycle speed record at an amazing 245.667 mph in 1966.

The history of the E-Type picks up in the 2000s, when it was acquired by a previous owner, at which time the car is said to have been in remarkably original, rust-free condition with just 16,650 original miles. The car was expertly repainted during this time in the period-correct E-Type color of subtle Metallic Golden Sand, with the engine and front sub frame removed from the car, while a new oxblood red leather interior and carpets was meticulously fitted, with all work performed to the highest possible standards.

Upon close inspection today, the E-Type Coupe still shows very well. Importantly, the engine block and cylinder head match the factory records and deemed to be original to the car. Factory correct finishes are present inside and out, and appropriate Michelin XWX tires are fitted on clean chrome wire wheels. The panel gaps are consistent, and the beautiful paint lays nice and flat on the Coupe bodywork, while chrome and brightwork shows just light signs of age. Inside, the red leather cabin welcomes you, and a lovely period Blaupunkt AM/FM radio adorns the dash. Lifting the lid to the spare wheel well equally shows the high level of restoration, and houses a matching Michelin XWX spare tire, original toolkit in great condition, jack, and hammer. The E-Type was acquired by the current owner in 2011, a New England based enthusiast with other fine British Sports cars in his garage, and the son of the late, renowned restorer David Steinman, who's exceptional restoration work was cherished at concours events such as Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Few classic sports cars offer the tremendous blend of gorgeous looks and effortless drivability below the million-dollar mark as the Jaguar E-Type. Offered with operating and maintenance books, chassis lubrication chart and the Jaguar Heritage Trust issued Certificate, this spectacular matching-numbers E-Type looks as good today – or perhaps even better – than it did 59 years ago.
