Car listed at:
www.fantasyjunction.com/cars/1596-Jaguar-E-Type%20Roadster-3.8%20Litre%20Inline% ...

1961 Jaguar E-Type Roadster
s/n 876381, engine no. R3245-9
Black with Black Leather Interior


This particular example has welded hood louvers instead of ones that were integral to the hood, distinguishing this as an early production car. A matching numbers example, this car was comprehensively restored to high standards and is presented in black with black interior and top. The current and long-term owner is a seasoned Jaguar restoration veteran, and since completion, showed the car at The Quail, a Motorsport Gathering in Carmel Valley in 2014. The restoration included every major system and aspect of the automobile, and the result is exceptional.

Details of the restoration work includes:
Body:
Comprehensive rotisserie restoration of original flat floor car with original welded louver bonnet

Cosmetically, the car is excellent and is suitable to be shown. The body is straight and displays excellent fit and gaps. The quality of the paintwork itself is excellent as well. The chrome is equally nice as are the glass and lights. The car has correct Lucas tribar headlamps fitted. The wheels are chromed and wear white wall tires with the appropriate aspect ratio to give the car an evocative period appearance and correct stance. The top and boot are also fresh and show high caliber workmanship.

The interior was completely restored to the same high standards as the exterior with fresh leather and carpets. The correct materials, patterns, and treatments were used throughout, from the vinyl behind the seats to the aluminum console and dash trim that was present on early 3.8 liter E-Types. The dashboard was comprehensively restored as well, and all switches and instruments are in excellent condition. The steering wheel is freshly restored and sparkles.

The engine compartment is clean, detailed, and was correctly restored to high standards. The cylinder head has the correct gold finish, and the vulnerable finish on the exhaust manifolds is like new. The engine, accessories, and front subframe are all clean and freshly restored in appearance. The correct glass windscreen washer bottle is present (later ones were plastic). The cylinder head and block number stamps both match the chassis plate stamp. The trunk was also restored to high standards with excellent structure beneath the plywood trunk floor, and correct tan upholstery (E-Type roadster trunks were trimmed in tan regardless of interior color).

This is a superbly restored early production E-Type roadster that presents correctly but incorporates many subtle upgrades that enhance the usability and performance of the car without significantly detracting from the authentic appearance of its presentation. Additionally, as such an early production example, it includes many features unique to early production E-Types. Included with the sale is the jack, tool kit, matching spare wheel, and significant documentation supporting the restoration work performed.
