A project car that is a great core E-Type for restoration, mostly apart and in boxes. The engine is out and the numbers match. There is a small amount of rust on the floor and some damage to the front bonnet but all is fixable.

Car now being offered at RM auctions:
1962 Jaguar Series I E-Type Roadster
Undoubtedly One of the Finest Examples in Existence
The original matching numbers E-Type Roadster offered here is an example of superb craftsmanship. Every component has been rebuilt or replaced by a marque specialist firm whose goal was perfection in their no-expense-spared restoration. Much of the chassis and many other parts, including top bows and seat frames, were powder coated and finished to perfection. All mechanics were completely rebuilt to factory standards including the 3.8 liter matching numbers engine that was calibrated with new pistons, bearings, valves, guides, seals and timing chain. In addition, the head, transmission and rear end were also completely rebuilt, as were the carburetors, clutch, undercarriage and fuel pump. All new suspension, exhaust, wiring harness and brakes were installed. The drive shaft was balanced, the shocks and the gas tank were restored and epoxy sealed. All electrical components, gauges, knobs, switches were rebuilt, rescreened or replaced and a new triplex windshield was installed.
The body was stripped to the bare metal with all the appropriate work done, while the doors, bonnets and boot were refitted to the attractive coachwork, upgrading the E-Type to better than new condition. All panels were then epoxy sealed, painted, color sanded and buffed to an incomparable high gloss. All brightwork and trim were replaced or replated, in addition to all new rubber, seals, grommets and gaskets. Finished in silver with a completely new dark blue interior, and fitted with a tan Stayfast top, this car comes complete with five matching chrome wire wheels and new tires. This car has been done to concours show quality with lots of time spent on detail and quality throughout the restoration process. The new owner will receive a CD detailing the extensive restoration this car has undergone.
Undoubtedly this is one of the finest examples of an E-Type Roadster for sale today, as we understand the Jaguar has less than 100 testing miles since restoration. Additionally, it is rare that we have the pleasure of offering an E-Type finished in this attractive color scheme – its overall look and presentation make it an impressive sight to behold. We encourage close examination of this Jaguar as more than likely this example will be wearing a JCNA ribbon following its next outing.
Addendum & Errata:
Please note that this car is a Flat Floor E-Type. Also note that in this car's first showing a couple of weeks ago, it took first place in it's class at the La Jolla Concours.
