Sellers description:
Car Condition: Original
This matching numbers 1965 Jaguar E-type has been in a private collection since new. A doctor purchased it in England for his wife new in 1965. He then transported the vehicle to Miami and four years later in 1969 the Jaguar found its home in Southern California. It was well kept and serviced as needed by the Doctor. This is an original Jaguar that has not been molested or abused. It has the original California blue plates and comes with a Heritage Certificate of authenticity. This vehicle never had a radio installed and it still has the original factory radio blanking plate. This original vehicle would be an excellent candidate for restoring or driving as is.

Nice car, my fav. colour combo, BUT this is not totally original and unmolested, as the door panel trim and sides of the centre console have been trimmed in a dark green material, which is NOT original. Also the black leather shifter stick gaiter and small chrome trim should not be there, only the black rubber grommet. Otherwise seems very correct. Cheers!

Seller's description:

We are pleased to present this gorgeous example of Jaguar’s most iconic sports car, offered here in its most desirable Series 1 4.2-litre Open Two-Seater specification. The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate on file shows the first owner originally ordered this car as a ‘Personal Export Delivery’ meaning, they collected the car at Jaguar’s Browns Lane works, drove it in the UK for a period (with the registration number DWK 827 C) before shipping it home to the US. It rolled from the factory gates finished in Opalescent Dark Green over a Suede Green interior, equipped with the 4.2-litre engine and manual gearbox. The car’s history is not fully known; however, photos of it in 2011 show it in California still wearing its original color scheme, and while looking a bit tired, it appeared complete and drivable.

This Jaguar was subsequently treated to a photo-documented, nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration by marque specialists Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California. It was sold to a private collector in 2018 and has remained in their care through 2022. Now finished in a beautiful shade of British Racing Green, the E-Type is well-sorted and ready for driving enjoyment. The paint and bodywork are excellent, displaying consistent panel fit and a smooth glossy finish. Sparkling chrome wire wheels set off the dark green color, and the car rolls on period-style Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. The interior is trimmed in beautiful dark tan leather, matching carpets, and proper factory-style vinyl on the sills and door cards. Authentic touches include the polished wood-rim steering wheel and a period-correct Blaupunkt radio.

Powered comes from a 4.2-litre XK inline-six, with both the engine block and cylinder head stampings matching factory production records. Lifting the clamshell bonnet reveals a beautifully detailed engine bay with plenty of polished alloy and authentic details and finishes. The undercarriage is authentically detailed, and while it shows signs of regular use, it is tidy and clean, with updates including a stainless steel exhaust. Records on file show the owners fastidiously maintained the car via a respected restoration shop, and it is now very well-sorted for the road.

The popularity of the E-Type is nearly universal, with great examples found in world-class collections and occupying space in the average enthusiast’s dream garage. This beautifully finished example is the ideal pick for the collector seeking a fastidiously, expertly restored E-Type to show with pride and enjoy to the fullest on rallies, tours, and weekend motoring adventures.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
