Fresh restoration by a marque specialist in striking colors
Original numbers-matching engine and gearbox
Numerous subtle upgrades to improve drivability and reliability
The current owner, a knowledgeable marque specialist, acquired this Series 1 E-Type from the daughter of its longtime owner in the Midwest. Born in January 1966, it has undergone an extensive professional restoration, using all of the original numbers-matching components that match the original serial number tag.
As part of this work, the body received a show-quality repaint in silver with a beautiful burgundy interior and black top, as well as new window glass. The engine was completely rebuilt and bored out, with new pistons, resized rods, a reground crankshaft, new timing chains and tensioner, and a dynamically balanced rotating assembly, for smooth and quiet running. The gearbox was dismantled and fitted with new bearings, synchromesh rings, a new layshaft, and new gaskets and seals. The differential was also dismantled and rebuilt with new bearings, seals, and a new 3.07:1 gearset, allowing the renowned Jaguar torque to pull a taller ratio while decreasing the revs during acceleration and cruising.
An alloy radiator was fitted with a 16-in. electric fan, to keep the car running at an optimum temperature, as well as a completely new fuel system, a new fuel pump, and even a new set of SU carburetors. Six-in. wire wheels fitted with Michelin 205 tires provide a smooth ride.
Freshly completed and in spectacular overall condition, this is an ideal E-Type for any connoisseur.

Restored to a magnificent standard
Viewing is highly recommended
This superlative 1966 lefthand drive E-Type was purchased by the vendor when he lived in Arizona and formed part of an impressive collection of British manufactured motor cars. The car was repatriated to the UK in November 2018 and put into storage. The term ‘nut and bolt restoration’ is often over-used, however in respect to this Jaguar, it most certainly applies. The silver coachwork is exemplary with panel gaps that look like they could have been set with a Vernier gauge, such is the uniformity. The interior has been trimmed to the highest standard and is totally unmarked. Open the bonnet and the quality of this E-Type is plainly evident, the engine with its polished cam covers glistens and the underside of the bonnet is painted to a finish commensurate of such a splendid example. Underneath this Jaguar is unmarked and mechanically she is faultless with the six cylinder engine sounding superb; we are advised she drives impeccably. Rarely do we see cars of such outstanding quality with unmarked coachwork, virtually new interior and hood together with impeccable brightwork. This really is one of the best Jaguar E-Types we have seen.
