Car now offered at:

www.hemmings.com/auction/1963-jaguar-e-type-baywood-park-ca-951360

Seller's description:

Vehicle Location Los Osos, California, previously Morro Bay, California

VIN 879207

Odometer 54,196

Engine 3.8-liter DOHC inline-six

Transmission Manual

Exterior Color British Racing Green

Seller Private

Auction Type Reserve

This 1963 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Open Two-Seater (OTS) was purchased by the California seller about 20 years ago, from a collector in Santa Monica. Judging from the photos and description provided, it appears that this E-type has been thoroughly maintained and preserved. A bare metal refinish, new Connolly leather seat covers, Wilton carpet, brakes and suspension service have all been completed in recent years. During the seller's ownership, this Jaguar has won first in class at the Dana Point Concours d'Elegance (then held at the Strawberry Farm Golf Club in Irvine, California), and second in class at the Los Angeles Concours d'Elegance. It is being offered now because he is downsizing.

The seller states that the engine is original to this E-type. The engine was rebuilt “about 7,000 miles ago and starts from cold on the first try.” He adds that a synchronized first gear was installed at some time in the E-type’s life, and that the gearbox “shifts smoothly.” He also identifies that an auxiliary radiator cooling fan has been installed to supplement the original expansion/header tank unique to early Series 1 cars.

The appearance of the engine, accessories, and engine compartment present to a very high standard. The mileage on the powertrain is shown as 54,196, which may be original. According to the seller, recent service records will be provided with the sale.

The extensive photos provided by the seller show the car in detail. The seller relates that in October 2022 the exterior was taken down to bare metal with “no rust,” and refinished with a single-stage British Racing Green. He describes the exterior as “perfect.” The images appear to show a highly polished finish. The paint on the underside of the forward-tilting bonnet and the exposed front subframe also appears to present to a high standard. 

“The glass is in excellent condition, and the bright work has been re-plated,” writes the seller. The body and glass seals “are all new” and no water leaks are reported. The tan fabric soft top and boot are also described as “new” by the seller. A rare factory hardtop is included, finished in British Racing Green and shown installed in one photo. All lights—including correct vintage style Lucas PL Tripod headlamps—are said to be in good condition and operational. No exterior modifications have been made from new, according to the seller.

The tan interior also appears to present in early Series 1 configuration, with no observed modifications or blemishes. The seller points out that the original seats have been “reupholstered in Connolly leather and all gliding adjustments work properly,” adding that “new Wilton carpet piped in leather was installed in January 2023.” The black leather covered dashboard displays a complete set of white on black instruments and controls, which the seller states are “all operational.” Unmarred early ‘Dot’ pattern Series 1 aluminum trim graces the gauge panel, radio panel, shifter surround, and center console. A Blaupunkt AM/FM pushbutton radio is identified by the seller as original to the car.

The wood-rim steering wheel with drilled alloy spokes and an adjustable steering column also appear as original. All interior trim is described to be complete. Jaguar covered the door cards and high sill panels in vinyl for both durability and cost, as in this example. The rear bulkhead is trimmed in textured Hardura material. The headliner of the soft top is said to be in “new condition.” The window lifts and door locks are mechanical. The heater is reported to work. There is no air conditioning, as new.

The unassisted rack-and-pinion steering is described as “very straight.” The seller identifies that suspension service was completed “about five years ago,” and the brakes were new at the same time. The bushings and shocks are all reported in “very good condition.” Polished 72-spoke wire wheels with knock-off hubs were original to E-types. Those on this example are described by the seller as having “no blemishes and no vibrations when driving.” The 185R15 Avon radial tires display a degree of tread wear.

DOCUMENTATION

The seller states that this vehicle will be sold on a clean Montana title in the name of his company. This 1963 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Open Two-Seater has captured awards at two California concours d'elegance events and is now in search of its next steward. A pending move precipitates the sale.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
