£62,000 - 83,000

This remarkable Series 1 3.8-Liter E-Type was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar works on October 18th of 1963. As a left-hand-drive model the car was sent to Jaguar Cars of New York, where it was sold to its owner of 53 years - Mr. Robert Bushnell of Wilder, Idaho. According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, the car was finished in the stunning combination of Opalescent Silver Grey over a red interior with a black top.

As an enthusiastic owner, Mr. Bushnell drove the car sparingly during the summer months and took great pride in maintaining the vehicle until 1990, when he placed it into long term storage. The car has sat untouched for the past 26 years, until very recently being removed from its long term resting place and brought back to life. The car was properly stored in a dry environment - as a result, it has held up extremely well and is in fantastic original condition. To ensure that the 3.8 liter would run without any issues, the following work was performed - the fuel system was restored, the SU carburetors were restored, new plugs/wires/cap/rotor/condenser were installed, and the engine received fresh oil and filters. As a result, the original - numbers matching engine fires right up and runs beautifully.

Showing just over 40,000 believed-to-be-original miles, the car has been fantastically preserved. With the exception of one repaint prior to being stored, everything else on the car is believed to be original. The vibrant red interior still pops with color and only shows minor wear. The original black soft top adds a very charming layer of patina to the car's outward appearance. Remarkably the car's correct redline tires are still in fantastic shape and free of any dry rot. The originality continues both under the bonnet and in the trunk, where things present just as you would hope to see - honest and original, with just the right amount of patina.

Accompanying the roadster is a copy of the build records, Mr. Bushnell's original Idaho title which was issued on September 2nd of 1966, a tool roll, and spare. It is not often that we see such an original example in such fantastic shape. This well preserved numbers matching Series 1 E-Type presents an opportunity to acquire one of the world's best loved roadsters.
