This very early E-Type Roadster, with flat floors, external bonnet latches, and welded bonnet louvers, was the 138th built and the first E-Type sold in Pennsylvania. In the early 1990s, with 41,700 miles showing on its odometer, it was restored from its complete original condition by Ray's Jaguar Restorations in Limerick, Pennsylvania, the shop run by the late Jaguar authority Reggie Ray. Fresh from its restoration, it was shown at three Jaguar Club North America concours, scoring 100 points at each and ultimately winning the Challenge Cup. Since then, it has covered exceedingly few road miles, with fewer than 42,000 showing on its odometer, and it has been stored properly for preservation in a temperature-controlled environment, where it has been elevated on jack stands and lubricated with regularity.

This car is gorgeous in its Carmen Red paint, Biscuit leather interior, and tan canvas top, and it looks as good today as it did in 1960 and again after its restoration in the 1990s. Its chrome wire wheels, with the authentic early-style knock-offs, are nicely complemented by wide whitewall tires, which were very popular in the United States at the time. It has recently been serviced by F40 Motorsports in Connecticut, and it is worthy and ready for another round of the concours circuit. The car is accompanied by a set of photographs of the restoration, invoices, and the proverbial "boxful" of trophies. This represents an unusual opportunity to acquire a rare and period-correct example of Jaguar's most iconic car, one in its original and purest form.
