This incredible, numbers matching, first-generation E-type outside bonnet latch roadster has undergone a restoration to a high standard of show-level correctness. Number 157 in early E-type production history this Jaguar was originally purchased from Jaguar Cars in New York on September 22, 1961 by F.P. Thorsen. The previous two owners were collectors, who kept it well maintained and cared for, until it was purchased by Classic Showcase. Included in the restoration process, the vehicle had been dissembled, the interior removed and all items were documented and inspected for the restoration process, the vehicle body was worked, the metal finished, fitted, and leaded as needed, and all body parts and chrome were fitted to the car. It was primed, sealed, base coat applied, clear coated, and then was color sanded and buffed to a beautiful finish. All systems were gone through and were restored, or replaced as necessary. The transmission, clutch, and hydraulic systems were all fully restored, and the car received all new rubber, grommets and seals. In addition, the britework was re-plated to Show level quality. The car benefited from all new upholstery that was fitted in all the correct materials. The roadster's parts and components were restored in the proper colors and finishes, and NOS parts were used wherever possible. Extreme attention to detail was given because of the importance of this early, highly original E-type. Photos from the restoration process, along with a Heritage Certificate of authenticity will accompany the vehicle upon purchase. Also included are receipts, paperwork, and the owner's manual. This first generation XKE is truly an amazingly preserved time capsule, and is meant for the discerning Jaguar collector who demands the best!

The car offered here, chassis 875157, is reportedly the 157th export roadster produced. According to a copy of its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, it was completed on June 30, 1961, and sold new to F.P. Thorson by Jaguar Cars of New York City on September 22, 1961. This car appears to have spent much of its life between two collectors in California before being restored by marque specialist Classic Showcase Inc. of Oceanside, California.

The restoration utilized NOS parts wherever possible, and all the work was photographed and documented. A restored hardtop and a correctly fitted soft top were included, and proper Dunlop tires were mounted on highly polished wire wheels. For improved driveability, a five-speed synchromesh gearbox was fitted, and the original gearbox is included. Show-quality accessories such as a tool roll, an original owner’s manual, and a period-correct bottle jack complete the concours presentation.

Kept in exemplary condition, the car appeared at the prestigious Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance in 2016, where it won Best of Class. Visually striking in lustrous black with red interior and showing low mileage since its restoration, this gorgeous outside-latch example captures the elegance and excitement that make the Jaguar E-Type Roadster one of the world’s most beautiful cars.
