Auction description:
Monaco
10 May 2014
Lot 154
1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Roadster
To be auctioned on Saturday, May 10, 2014
€200.000 - €250.000

Chassis no. 875139
Engine no. R1177-9
Body no. R1227
Gearbox no. EB284JS

Matching numbers with desirable black hardtop
Early flat-floor example with external bonnet locks

According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, which accompanies the car, this E-Type was built on 23 June 1961, and it was sold new to a W.R. Samson, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 31 July 1961. As an early-production example, it features the unique and desirable external bonnet locks, as well as welded louvers. Eventually, the car was acquired by Lawrence M. Kaynes, who restored it in the 1990s. During this time, the engine was completely rebuilt, and in the process, a new cylinder head was also installed. Mr Kaynes maintained his E-Type at his property in the Hamptons, New York, and would only drive it occasionally during visits.

In 2013, the car was acquired by the current owner, who refinished it in its original colour of Carmen Red. It was then imported to Europe, where it underwent a substantial restoration of its interior and engine bay. The intent of the restoration was to maintain the car's originality, including the patina of the original beautiful black leather seats. The odometer currently shows approximately 90,000 miles, which are believed to be original.

As Jaguar's most iconic sports car, ownership of an E-Type Roadster should be a requisite for any collector or enthusiast. This rare outside bonnet lock example, in its factory-original red over black with black hardtop, is in spectacular mechanical and cosmetic condition, and it is certainly worthy of close inspection.
