THE JAGUAR E-TYPE
Jaguar would make a habit of shocking the automotive world. Sometimes the impact of its cars reached beyond the showrooms and exposition halls to rock popular culture, yet not even Jaguar's founder, Sir William Lyons, could have predicted the impact of the Jaguar E-Type.
When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the new Jaguar stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. Constructed using methods derived from the D-Type sports racing car, the E-Type was a technical marvel. The light and rigid monocoque chassis used the engine itself as a structural part of the car, with the long and sleek bonnet hinged at the front. The headlights were beautifully recessed in the fenders, and covered with contoured Perspex for a free-flowing design and improved aerodynamics. The car featured 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes all-around and a 4-speed manual transmission.
Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed. With spare parts readily available, a number of marque clubs to join and many driving and concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent, widely admired collector car.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
Produced on the August 26th, 1965, this particular E-Type Coupe was sent to America and sold through Jaguar Cars in New York. The car's Heritage Certificate shows that it was ordered with an Opalescent Maroon exterior over a black interior. Although the first owner, Mr. Fred Honig, took delivery of the car, it has been reported that he did not hold onto it for long. Honig sold the car fairly quickly to Mr. Earl Fuller of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who enjoyed the wonderful Jaguar for a number of years prior to treating the car to a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration in 2007.
The Jaguar experts at XK Unlimited in San Luis Obispo, California were chosen to perform the restoration and the goal for the project was clear: Mr. Fuller wanted his E-Type to be as good as new. As a result, for the following two years the E-Type was subjected to a no-expense-spared restoration; the car was updated to have the convenience of a more modern car while still carrying the looks of the model Enzo Ferrari supposedly named "the most beautiful car ever produced". The 4-speed gearbox was replaced with a more modern 5-speed for better drivability, and an aluminum radiator was installed to supply the powerful 4.2 liter, straight 6-cylinder engine with plenty of cold air. During the process the hood was also changed (due to some damage earlier in the car's life). All told, the thorough restoration cost $164,000. After completion of the photo-documented, nut-and-bolt restoration, the car was used only sparingly by Mr. Fuller prior to being sold in 2014 to the E-Type's current custodian.
Still retaining its matching numbers engine block, the Coupe presented here is finished in a period correct Opalescent Silver over a black interior. Accompanied by the owner's manual, restored factory jack, new knockoff hammer and a tool kit, this E-Type would be a fun and enjoyable contender for any vintage rally.
Please note car is titled 1966
