    Original Cotswold Blue paint is evident (behind the dash panel, for instance.) The car will be restored to the original color scheme.

    Additional description from above auction:
    During the first year of production, numerous running changes were made to the blueprint, and this early-production model, which left the factory line on August 29, 1961, exhibits many of the earliest features. Add to this the body, chassis number, engine, and transmission, all stamped with the numbers listed on its JDHT Heritage Certificate and number plate, and this Jaguar is the ultimate collectible.

    The consignor purchased this early E-Type in 2001 then showing just under 55,000 miles with its restoration already underway. The engine had been freshly rebuilt and was inspected to verify the quality of the work. Over a period of years, the work progressed, component by component.

    The respected Sherm's Custom Plating of Sacramento provided the show-quality brightwork, Sufolk & Turley in the UK provided the leather interior, and Classic Jaguar of Austin rebuilt the Jaguar's inboard-brake rear-axle assembly. Dave Ferguson's Images Auto Body of Campbell, California, prepared the bodywork and returned it to its original and elegant Cotswold Blue and oversaw the roadster's final assembly.

    At every stage, special care was taken to complete the restoration as authentically as possible. NOS fasteners were sourced and installed while proper plating and coatings were applied throughout the car. The result is truly spectacular. Finished in its original color combination, the E-Type is a crowd favorite any time it is shown.

    A showstopper on the field, this lovely Cotswold Blue E-Type was given pride of place at the entrance of The Quail Motorsports Gathering in August 2014, and presented as an ambassador for its model in October, 2014 at the Niello Concours at Serrano in El Dorado Hills, California.
