Sellers description:
Jaguar E-type 3.8 Litre series 1 FHC (Fixed Head Coupe), year 1961. Colour Gun Metal grey with a dark red leather interior. This very early Jaguar E-type FHC is in superb (excellent+) original condition, near concourse!
'Flat floor' model featuring the most beautiful colour combination and the fantastic 3.8 Litre XK engine! Chassis number 885183 which means this is the 183rd ever built E-type.
In 1961 the car was sold new to Mr. Stewart in California, USA. He had the car in possession all his life, after that his son became the owner of this beautiful E-type. During all these years the automobile only drove only 14.210 miles!
Because the paint was deteriorated by years of polishing and the Californian sun it was decided to give the car new paint. To do this perfectly the outside of the bodywork was fully stripped of paint, up to the bare metal. The body proved to be fully free of dents and rust. The body was painted using a modern paint system with a clear coat top layer. The job was carried out by Jaguar make specialist Paulerspury Coachworks in Northamptonshire, England. This firm also restores original Jaguar C- and D-types.
With only the paint renewed this beautiful E-type in perfect original condition, even the interior and the bright work are in pristine condition!
The automobile was perfectly serviced and maintained over the years. This E-type drives, steers, brakes and shifts immaculate and the 3.8 Litre engine runs fantastic!
This Jaguar early Jaguar E-type is a unique car and will be of great importance to any serious Jaguar collector. This car is a potential concourse winner on beauty and originality.

Fahrzeugbeschreibung

Die wahrscheinlich letzte Chance einen 3.8 E-Type im Jahreswagen Zustand zu erwerben! Ausgeliefert wurde das Coupé am 02.Dezember 1961. Die Fahrgestell Nr. 885183 weist ihn als 183 gebauten Wagen aus. Das Fahrzeug blieb von 1961 bis 1998 im ersten Familienbesitz. Bis Heute hat der Wagen lediglich eine Gesamtlaufleistung von 14.870 Meilen zurückgelegt. Die originalen California "Black Plates", mit denen der Wagen 1961 zugelassen wurde, sind ebenso vorhanden, wie das Bordwerkzeug, die Zulassungspapiere und verschiedene historische Dokumente.Der zweite Eigentümer erwarb den Wagen 1998 vom Sohn des Erstbesitzers.Da für ihn die größtmögliche Erhaltung der Originalsubstanz Priorität hatte,ließ er lediglich die Lackierung und einige Gummidichtungen von einem renomierten Jaguar C und D Type Restaurationsbetrieb in Großbritanien erneuern.Die Arbeiten wurden auf höchstem Niveau durchgeführt und lassen den Wagen ausehen als wären die letzten 48 Jahre spurlos an ihm vorübergegangen. Die Motorhaube ist sichtbar mit der originalen Nummerierung versehen. Das Fahrzeug ist komplett ungeschweißt und durchgehend nummerngleich.Farbkombination, Motor und Getriebenummer, Hauben und Türen etc. sind original wie bei Fahrzeug Auslieferung. Uns liegt ein aktuelles Jaguar Heritage Certificate vor, welches den Auslieferungszustand bestätigt. Der Wagen verfügt über eine Reihe interessanter Details, die Im Verlauf der späteren Produktion geändert wurden. Dieses E-Type Coupé vereint alle nur wünschenswerten Eckdaten und macht es zu einem absoluten Highlight für Kenner und Liebhaber der britischen Sportwagen Ikone. Dieser Fahrzeugzustand läßt sich auch durch eine aufwändigst durchgeführte Restauration nicht erreichen. Überzeugen Sie sich bei einer Besichtigung vom excellenten Zustand des Wagens. Bei Fragen stehen wir Ihnen jederzeit gerne zur Verfügung.

I saw the car last year at the Nachtigal Showroom. Fantastic overall condition!
Mr.Nachtigal told me the very interesting history.
A real time machine.. This car looks like it is one or two years old!
