    THE JAGUAR E-TYPE

    When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, Jaguar's E-Type stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. The newcomer's design owed much of that to the racing D-Type. Indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor.

    Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure of the E-Type while a tubular spaceframe extended forward to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-liter, triple-carbureted, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance furthered the standards set by the preceding XK models; firstly, because it weighed around 500lbs less than the XK150, and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used the experience he gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car.

    Developed from that of the original XK120 sports car and refined in the racing D-Type, the double wishbone, independent front suspension was mounted on the forward sub frame. At the rear the E-Type's suspension broke new ground for a large-capacity sports car, being independent at a time when most of its major rivals relied on the traditional live-rear axle. Dunlop disc brakes were fitted to all four wheels, those at the rear being mounted inboard alongside the differential to reduce un-sprung weight.

    Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed.

    THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

    This remarkable Series 1 3.8-Liter E-Type was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar Works on April 8, 1964, and shipped to Jaguar Cars of New York on May 4th of that same year. According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, the car was finished in the stunning combination of black over a red leather interior with a black top.

    A copy of the Importer's and Manufacturer's Statement of Origin dated May 26, 1964 shows that 881399 moved swiftly from New York to Roosevelt Auto Company, Inc. of Washington D.C. before finding its way down to Al Smith Buick of Raleigh, North Carolina. The copy of the first title indicates the original owner as Samuel Todd Bailey of Wendell, North Carolina, who paid a sum of $4,828 for the car on October 21, 1964. Bailey would keep the Jag for about four years before selling it to Kidd Brewer of Raleigh on August 19, 1968. A copy of Brewer's title is also on file, which shows that he kept the car only briefly, transferring it less than a month later on September 10th to his wife, Olivia Linney Brewer.

    Following the Brewers' ownership, possession of 881399 passed into the hands of a custodian based out of Washington, DC, then over to a Wisconsin resident before being acquired by the current, Florida-based consignor in the early 2000s. When acquired, the car was largely original but repainted white. A nearly decade-long restoration (which was documented by photos that remain on file), was begun in 2005, during which the car was brought to concours condition. The work was completed in 2012, and a copy of the Jaguar Club of North America judging sheet, dated April 21, 2012, shows that the car scored a total of 998.1 out of 1000. The Jag would later take an AACA Senior National First Prize in early 2013.

    Carefully kept and sparingly driven since the completion of its restoration, this sleek roadster looks much like it must have appeared when Mr. Bailey picked it up brand new from Al Smith's showroom in the fall of '64. Complete with copies of its paperwork when new, including its MSO and first two South Carolina titles, its JCNA judging sheets, a JDHT Certificate, photos of the restoration, a tool roll and the original owner's manual, this multiple award winner is sure to bring plenty more joy to its next owner.
