My husband purchased it in 1968 when he was working in CA. and drove it home. It was originally red and he painted it orange. He had stored it for at least the past 20 years. It was his first Jaguar. It has Weber Carbs. I believe it's a 4.2 engine.

For sale on eBay
JAGUAR E TYPE 3.8 SERIES 1 FHC 1962 LHD
A lovely old 'California' E Type. It is a totally rust free , undamaged and unrestored example that has just had a sympathetic rejuvenation. This consisted of a high quality 'bare metal' repaint in its original colour of Carmen red, reupholstered seats in black leather, new carpets, new clutch and a full mechanical inspection and rectification. It has a genuine mileage of 88,000 miles, two owners, drives superbly and is fitted with the later 4.2 full synchro gearbox. Matching numbers (apart from the gearbox) with Heritage Certificate, recently MOT'd with no advisories, NOVA certificate confirming all import duties have been paid and full UK registration.
Built in August 1962, it is the desirable 'aluminiun dash' model, with chrome wire wheels and Michelin XVS tyres. A competetively priced top 'driver quality' example, that is not absolutely perfect, but on the plus side, is not £150,000. A lot more fun than money in the bank (earning a pittance) and guaranteed to be an appreciating and enjoyable investment. Straightforward and inexpensive to convert to RHD if you are that way inclined.

Car to be at auction 10/17
ESTIMATE £80,000- £90,000
Auction The Spirit of Motoring, London October 2017
Lot Number 337
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 886665
This lovely example is a matching numbers LHD U.S car that was originally delivered to Jaguar Motors New York in August 1962, ready for its first owner. Although delivered to the east coast the car spent most of its life in the dry states of the US, and since arriving in the UK in 2016 has undergone sympathetic renovation work. Included in this work was a bare metal re-spray to the original carmen red as well as having a new clutch and reupholstered seats fitted. The interior is genuinely very presentable, the original aluminium dashboard shows very little sign of wear as does the headlining and carpets. Showing a mere 88,000 miles on the odometer the car is in all round good condition; the body is straight and rust free and the engine bay is very clean. The history file that is supplied with the car includes many bills of maintenance work as well as a Jaguar heritage certificate and MoT. An exceptional early example ready to be driven on the open road or perhaps a future entrant in the ever popular tourist trophy racing series.
