1963 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES I 3.8 COUPE
Sold for US$ 112,750 inc. premium
Quail Lodge Auction
11:00 PDT
Carmel, Quail Lodge & Golf Club

According to its Jaguar Cars Heritage Certificate, this sleek E-Type Coupe first emerged from Jaguar's Coventry workshop on May 15, 1963 sporting cream paint over a tan leather interior. Shortly thereafter, on June 23, it was dispatched to the New York based Jaguar distributor to be united with its first owner, L.C. Berghagen. The new E-Type was completed with a left hand drive steering arrangement, and equipped for the US market. It remains unknown for exactly how long the Jaguar remained in L.C. Berghagen's ownership, but by the early 1980s the car is known to have been owned by a Mr. Peterson of Sun Valley, Idaho, before migrating to California sometime around 1984, where the Montgomery family owned the Jaguar for the next two and a half decades.

Today, this stunning E-Type is fresh from an extensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration carried out by noted Jaguar restorer David Ferguson and his company Images Auto Body in Campbell, California. Completely disassembled and mounted on a rotisserie, this elegant Coupe was stripped and repainted in the period correct Jaguar color of Sherwood Green and trimmed in Biscuit hides, a timeless combination that undeniably suits this elegant E-Type. All the bright work has been re-plated and polished, accenting the mirror-like paint beautifully. Cosmetically the E-Type looks exceptional, with outstanding finish and detail throughout.

The original, matching numbers engine has been rebuilt, and fitted with a lightened flywheel and sport clutch for added performance and driver enjoyment. The complex independent suspension system and braking system has been restored as well, giving this slinky sports car performance and handling characteristics to match its handsome cosmetic state.

Accompanying this fine E-Type Coupe is a tool kit, jack, and owner's manual. Additionally, there are service and restoration documents from two previous owners going back to 1984, including service and maintenance receipts. Also included is a CD documenting its recent nut-and-bolt restoration, as well as the Jaguar-issued Heritage Trust Certificate. Few cars can rival the Jaguar E-Type in performance, beauty, and desirability and this particular Coupe is a superb example of one of the most iconic cars of the '60s.
