Jaguar E Type Series 1 Coupe


Jaguar E Type Series 1 Coupe, 1964 3.8, Carmen red with full black leather interior. AWA 69B

remained with it's first owner and his daughter for over fifty years, it then was placed in the Heritage Museum at Gaydon after the passing of the owner by his daughter. Six years ago I purchased the car and carried out some interior work including re-trimming the seats and fitting new wheels and various other bits and pieces. After a coupe of years I sold it to a friend of mine who asked me to strip it from the bulkhead forward and carry out a rebuild of the engine and fit a five speed gearbox. We stripped the bulkhead and frames down to bare metal and repainted them in the original Carmen red. All other components were stripped and rebuilt, everything was either re-plated or powder coated and some items were replaced. The original gearbox comes with the car and it has a full stainless steel exhaust including manifolds. There is a history file containing all the expenditure in the las six years, many old mot's, Heritage certificate, old log books, photos of the car with the first owner, orignal owners manual and servicing charts and various other bills etc.This car is in fantastic condition throughout and represents excellent value for such an original and correct car. There is an article in the file from E Type magazine when it was featured on our premises when we undertook the front end restoration.
