£0Back to Stocklist
NOW SOLD Jaguar E Type 3.8 Roadster, red with black leather interior, 1961 chassis no 62! UK matching engine numbers flat floor car, originally supplied with outside bonnet catches. Showing 29,000 miles with heritage certificate and service file going back for many years. This is an incredibly important piece of Jaguar history and we feel very fortunate to own it and to able to offer it for sale. It has spent all of its life in Scotland and was originally a demonstrator for the Jaguar main dealer in Edinburgh. In the early seventies the bonnet was replaced with the standard inside lock and pressed louvered type, if only the owner back then realised how rare this car was! However it was probably only worth at the time the price of an expensive meal today. The car is in superb condition bodily, the paintwork is perfect and the interior is in lovely condition. The engine bay is presentable but would benefit from some improvement. Mechanically the car performs perfectly and the engine and gearbox are faultless. This is an opportunity to acquire the rarest model E type in existence at a realistic price. UK Home Market supplied matching numbers cars with outside latches can fetch in excess of four hundred thousand pounds after full restoration.
