    Auction description:
    Lot 53
    1963 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES I 3.8 ROADSTER
    Sold for US$ 132,000 inc. premium
    Quail Lodge Auction
    11:00 PDT
    Carmel, Quail Lodge & Golf Club
    Chassis no. 879628
    Engine no. RA2459-9

    Although the early history of this stellar Series I Roadster remains unknown, it is clear that in last twenty years this car has been under excellent care After the photo-documented, nut-and-bolt restoration was completed by a Jaguar specialist in the late 1990s, this E-type has been used only sparingly.

    In order to make this timeless designed E-Type even more drivable than the factory had made it, it was decided that the car would be given tasteful performance enhancing elements. Finished in a period correct red over tan interior with a matching convertible top, the sleek Roadster was given an update to its seats, incorporating the more comfortable, late Series I Type. Combined with the classic Moto Lita steering wheel, this E-Type is a good mix of sport and comfort.

    Not only has the interior been upgraded, but the mechanical system also received refurbishments with sporty driving in mind. The engine was removed and rebuilt with high compression pistons and connecting rods, camshafts, and the cylinder heads were ported and polished, while the standard carburetors were exchanged for a triple Weber set up. The ignition system was upgraded to an electronic type and the original radiator was replaced with a performance aluminum type with auxiliary electric cooling fan. It was converted to an alternator and finally the gearbox was swapped with a 5-speed unit. Furthermore, the full clutch assembly was replaced.

    In order to utilize the extra power from the upgraded engine, it was decided that the wire wheels and brakes also needed refreshing. New and wider wire wheels were fitted to the E-type to accept tubeless tires and thereby increase grip and road handling. The braking system was upgraded to a Wilwood system, and all brake lines were replaced with stainless steel lines.

    Good acceleration and a crisp, racing like sound from the Weber carburetors makes this driver's E-Type a truly unique example of this British favorite, and it would surely be a fun and enjoyable contender for any vintage rally. The car is accompanied by an owner's manual, restored factory jack, a new knockoff hammer and a tool kit.
