Introduced in 3.8-litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a major sensation when it first appeared, with classic smooth lines, great looks and an amazing, at the time, top speed of 150 MPH. With 265 bhp and a huge weight saving of over 500lbs on its immediate predecessor (the XK 150), William Lyons had created one of the all-time most beautiful cars ever to be produced by Jaguar. The first evolution was the introduction of the 4.2-litre engine, fully synchronised gearbox, and greater legroom to accommodate six foot plus drivers. This is often regarded as the ultimate driving E-type, and even now a well-sorted example is a sensational driving experience with a sense of occasion that's hard to replicate at any price in a classic car.Originally built for the American market in left-hand drive, this Series 1 4.2-litre Roadster was supplied to Jaguar Cars in New York in 1966 before finding its first owner in Ohio. It was much admired in the US of A for many years before returning to the UK afew years ago and was then subject to a complete restoration, with the engine rebuilt by Swallow Engineering, and accurately converted to right-hand drive at that time. The full details of the restoration and engine build are contained in two large A4 folders along with the Jaguar Heritage Certificate.The car finally returned to the road in 2010 but, as far as its condition is concerned, it could have been ten minutes ago. Finished in a classic Jaguar Dark Blue with a fabulous Red interior this is a really impressive E-Type with even shut-lines and paintwork that looks so deep you feel you could dive into it. E-type engine bays tend to be well kept because access is comparatively easy, but this one looks like an operating theatre. Even the boot carpet looks brand spanking. The car looks like it has hardly been used since the restoration, but it must have been, as last month the ball joints, rear radius bushes, and some other mechanical items were renewed at a cost of £3,007.Apart from its historyfile the Jaguar is accompanied by the owner's handbook, service manual, spares catalogue, jack, and wheel nut spanner. It will have a fresh MOT for the sale and its registration number (24 FPO) is fully transferable.Series 1, 4.2, Dark Blue, Red interior, chrome wires, and well restored - most of the boxes ticked I think.
