1965 Jaguar E-Type
Call for Price
Engine Size: 4.2
Ext Color: Black
Int Color: Black
1965 Jaguar 4.2 E-Type OTS
44,000 Original Miles,
Two Owners from New
As confirmed by the Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Certificate, this car was manufactured on February 25, 1965, and still retains all original drivetrain and powertrain components. Supplied new to Jaguar Cars New York, the car was purchased by an Edwin E. Riley On April 4, 1965; Mr. Riley remained the owner of this car until his passing in 1985. The original sales invoice and title accompany the vehicle today, and confirm the original engine and gearbox number, as well as the original options of a hardtop, radio, bumper guards, and racing mirror.
The most recent owner purchased this car directly from the estate of the original owner, making this a true two-owner vehicle. After acquiring the car, the new custodian of 1E10698 undertook a complete restoration of the car, performing a bare metal repaint in his preferred triple-black color scheme. The car has been dutifully maintained ever since, and still looks and performs like a freshly sorted car today.
The car is in exemplary mechanical condition, with mirror-like single stage black paint that still looks fresh today. The cars he indicated 44,000 miles are documented to be original. The original hardtop accompanies the car, along with a workshop manual, and original owners manual with pouch. The 1965 model year was the first year to offer many of the most desirable E-Type design refinements. This included larger more comfortable two-piece seats, a fully synchronized gearbox, and of course the larger and more powerful 4.2 liter motor. Those looking for the ultimate E-Type driving experience would be well served to consider this car at the top of their list.

For sale at RM Auction, 8 december 2018, Los Angeles :
Auction description :
1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Litre Roadster
RM | Sotheby's - THE PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM AUCTION 2018
Desirable Series 1 example with larger 4.2-liter engine
Upgraded Wilwood front disc brakes
Original purchase documentation and Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) Certificate
Includes soft top and hardtop
This Jaguar E-Type 1 4.2-Litre Roadster was dispatched on 15 March 1965 and delivered to Jaguar Cars in New York. Originally presented in Opalescent Maroon with a black interior and top, the car was sold through Kingsfield Motors Inc. of Englewood, New Jersey, on 19 April 1965. Kingsfield Motors’ salesman P. Marshall sold the car to Edwin Riley of North Bergen. Options listed on the invoice included a hardtop, radio, bumper guards, and a racing mirror. Out the door, Mr. Riley acquired this fine Jaguar for $6,165.50.
The car is believed to have remained in Riley family ownership into the 1980s. At some point in the car’s life, it was repainted to the current shade of black it is presented in today. Exterior features still include the factory hardtop, black soft top, driver’s side Talbot-style mirror, and bumper guards. The car rides on Firestone FR710 thin whitewall radial tires mounted on chrome knock-off wire wheels. Four-wheel disc brakes bring the car to a safe stop, with the front discs having been upgraded to a Wilwood configuration for improved stopping power. The interior is presented in black leather featuring an adjustable wood-rimmed steering wheel, Smiths instruments, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio.
Accompanying the car is the original invoice from Kingsfield Motors, Inc., original State of New Jersey Certificate of Ownership, 4.2 E-Type operating, maintenance, and service book, as well as Periodic Maintenance Voucher booklet, pamphlet of Jaguar sales and service centers in the U.S. and Canada, and the Manufacturer’s Warranty pamphlet.
The E-Type is arguably the most iconic road car produced by Jaguar, with Series 1 examples being the most desirable, and especially those powered by the improved 4.2-liter engine.
