1961 JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER
Crème with Red leather interior and Tan convertible top. This particular E-Type is one of the earliest cars manufactured. It was produced during the E-Types first two months of production. This being the 100th left hand drive example of the first 383 E-Types produced, it thus features flat floors, welded bonnet louvers and external T-handle bonnet latches. Chassis # 875100 had only one previous owner prior to restoration. The extensive and proper frame off/rotisserie restoration was completed in October of 2000 by Jaguar specialist, Dave Ferguson of Campbell, California. The body and chassis were bead blasted, straightened and resprayed. The engine and drivetrain were completed rebuilt and repainted to original factory specifications. Final assembly was completed with painstaking attention to detail. Original new old stock components unique to this early series have been sourced from around the world. This matching numbers E-Type (Chassis: 875100, Engine: R1143-0, Body: R1082, Gearbox: EB243JS) has been restored exceptionally and correctly in every way down to the complete factory tool kit and jack. Since restoration this Jaguar has been part of an extensive collection. It is currently offered with Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate to confirm its first sale to San Francisco, California as well as its matching numbers. Absolutely exceptional in every way, this E-Type must be considered one of the best if not the best early flat floor examples in the world.

The Champion Spark Plugs ad just posted to this page does not show 875100. The very early roadster in the Sept. 1961 ad is believed to be the cream-coloured New York Show car 875002, which was still retained by Jaguar Cars NY for publicity purposes at the time this ad would have been produced.
