1965 Jaguar E

Story and History

1965 Jaguar E Type 4.2 series 1 FHC

A genuine UK RHD example from new, as denoted in the Jaguar Heritage Certificate although the lack of earlier history tells us nothing of this cars possible exciting life story

Anyway the restoration has been completed in the most glorious gunmetal metallic with soft cream hide interior and period correct grey webbing seat belts with chrome fixings

A set of triple side draft Weber carburettors sit aside the block, spitting and crackling as you spin the engine through the rev range, adding a decent dose of extra pep to the already excellent acceleration

The more spirited performance is also enhanced with better handling care of the new competition, triple laced chromed 6" wire wheels with new Avon Turbo Steel 205 / 70 tyres - over £2.500 for these alone

Adhesion is simply terrific and this super looking E Type goes just as well as she looks

Completely restored from the ground up, with a full photographic record as well as a nice hard backed booklet of the same, this car is as close to brand new and run in example, as you can find

Moreover for those in the know it is often considered the best E Type to go for - synchromesh gear box, more torquey engine with a smoother power delivery, extra space in the cockpit, much more comfortable seats and just as fast as the early 3.8 versions

Just 2.000 careful miles have been traveled since the overhaul was completed, on slave wheels to protect the new wires & tyres now fitted, so no bug bears left and all the next owner has to do is plan that trip up the Stelveo Pass, to the Le Mans Classic or even the local pub for a nice Sunday lunch
