This outstanding Jaguar E type 3.8 Roadster is a very late production Series One model finished in Masons black with St James Red leather interior and was manufactured on 29th April 1964 as confirmed by documents on file from the Jaguar enthusiasts club

Manufactured for export to the United States, a letter on file indicates the car previously spent time in Lauderdale County, Alabama, before being imported to the UK c2015. By 2017 the Jaguar benefitted from a total concours standard restoration by respected Jaguar specialists ‘AG Classic Automobiles’ Essex

The comprehensive restoration included a full mechanical and cosmetic rebuild with the addition of various upgrades to enhance the usability of the E Type for modern driving conditions, a dyno sheet on file shows a healthy 276 lb/ft torque at 4000 rpm

The car also benefits from an upgraded 5 speed synchromesh gearbox which makes touring at motorway speeds significantly more pleasant and the beautifully trimmed Connolly leather front seats have been upgraded to give more comfort and support than the original narrow bucket seats  

Handling has been improved with the fitment of wider 15 inch wheels shod with Michelin XWX tires and Koni dampers. In car entertainment is supplied by an upgraded period radio with Bluetooth connectivity, JL Audio Amplifier and discreetly fitted loud speakers

Sold following its restoration in late September 2017 to a noted Kent based car collector for GBP 225,000, the vendor acquired the car from Jaguar Heritage directly in May 2020 and it has covered less than 500 miles since restoration

Without question one of the finest Roadsters we have ever seen with exceptional shut lines and body gaps, this E type really does drive as well as it looks and is ready for immediate summer touring
