VIN 889124

Estepona, Spain

This Jaguar E-Type Series 1 FHC is a race-focused example of the iconic classic British sports coupe, with a rich competition history.  

Under the bonnet now sits upgraded naturally aspirated 4.2-litre straight-six with triple Weber carburettors and a dry sump, which sends its power to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. 

Having been converted to racing specification in the early 1980s, it was piloted by renowned American driver and former president of the Jaguar restoration specialist ‘XKs Unlimited’, Jason Len, in numerous competitions between 1985 and 1988. 

It later competed in the 1992 Classic Cup at the Nürburgring, and the ADMV Classic Cup at EuroSpeedway Lausitzring in 2010 and 2012. 

The car underwent meticulous preparation for both GT-1 and GT-2 class racing, and has also benefitted from an engine overhaul carried out through 2022 and 2023.  

It has recently been imported to France from Tennessee, USA, and then moved to Spain.  

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES  

This 1963 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 FHC is finished in red, with white racing stripes, ‘26’ numbering on the bonnet and doors, American flags on the front wings and rear hatch, and the driver name ‘Jason Len’.  

It features ‘Coast Classics’, ‘XKs Unlimited’, ‘GT-1’, and ‘Jean Marc Lazzari’ lettering, as well as decals and stickers from Snap-on, Tilton, OMP, Castrol, and the SCAA. 

Equipment includes flared wheel arches, black door mirrors, a modified side-exit exhaust, a front lip spoiler, a battery cut-off switch, acrylic side and rear windows, a racing fuel tank, a modified undercarriage, and 15-inch eight-spoke wheels with Hoosier tyres.   

The cabin features Allstar Performance window nets, a three-spoke Moto-Lita steering wheel, a single bucket seat, an OMP four-point harness, a roll cage, and a fire extinguisher.  

Accompanying the vehicle will be its State of Tennessee certificate of title and registration plate, as well as a collection of photographs.  

SERVICE HISTORY  

The engine oil was last replaced in 2022.
