A rare opportunity to own an original original floor, complete numbers, straight traction, fixed head cups.
Complete restoration to the highest standard,
Engine, gearbox (manual) and differential reconstruction by a prestigious Jaguar specialist.
Finished in the original color modes; Imperial brown paint over dark red Vaolol leather.
The highly sought-after floor was the oldest variation of the Jaguar E-Type 3.8-liter Coupé. Its top speed of 150 mph and impressive looks made it an instant classic among motor enthusiasts. Enzo Ferrari has described the famous Jaguar E-Type as the most beautiful car in the world. . Its 3.8-liter engine is capable of 265 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Weighing in at about 500lb (227kg) smaller than its predecessor XK150, the E-type is quick to point out and not just a pretty face.
The date of manufacture was December 18, 1961, and the first delivery was January 10, 1962. It was rarely used in its period and is believed to have been kept simply for its appearance.
The engine was stripped, along with the original Moss differential and gearbox, before being rebuilt by a Jaguar specialist. Following the soda blast, all corrosive sections were removed and all required panels replaced. This process saw that over 500 hours of work were put into the body casing alone. Much of the original metalwork on the Jaguar has been preserved using traditional techniques, including being loaded and folded. The car was painted in its original color (imperial brown). A lightweight black finish structure was applied to the underside of the housing to be complete. As a result, the car had a complete mechanical rebuild at the bottom, suspension, brakes, axle / differential and engine bay.
The interior has been refurbished using the Connolly Vaumol VM893 Luxan leather (maroon) with vinyl (vinyl) mounted on all other panels. The correct wool rugs and a traditional head liner were cut manually before being fitted. The original bucket seats were repaired and painted before the lining was completed. Together with the original polka dot center console, it is easily restored to carry the skid. To finish this amazing and iconic interior, the original direction was fitted.
