Lot 059

Scottsdale 2020

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8-Litre Roadster

Estimate: $275,000 - $350,000

Chassis: 875180

Engine: R1270-9

Very Early Example Complete with Outside Bonnet Latches, Flat Floors, and Welded Louvers

Retains Matching-Numbers Engine per JDHT Certificate

One of Only 385 LHD Outside-Latch Roadsters Built

Documented Concours-Standard Restoration by Marque Specialist Classic Showcase

Stunning Presentation Throughout in Quintessential Color Combination

This superb and ultimately collectible Jaguar, chassis 875180, was sold by Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California, to collector Nicholas Colonna of Palos Verdes in 2007, with the agreement that Classic Showcase restore the car to concours standards. The classic combination of British Racing Green with a tan leather interior was chosen and, over a period of two years, the E-Type underwent a stringent frame-off restoration at a reported cost of $135,000. In the decade since, the Jaguar has been maintained and coddled with the care and vigilance worthy of an automotive icon. A DVD documenting the restoration process accompanies the car, as does a handbook and correct tool roll.

With D-Type DNA plus the pedigree established by its ancestors, the E-Type has arguably garnered more affection and recognition than any other British sports car. This example, with all of the earliest hallmarks and its spectacular presentation, deserves to be the center of attention at any automotive gathering.

Car now back at Classic Showcase

classicshowcase.com/index.php/inventory/detail/660

1961 Jaguar-XKE Series 1 3.8 OTS

Outside Bonnet Latch

Stock: J61-180 Current condition: SHOW-DRIVER Performance: 3.8 Liter, 6 cylinder, 265 HP, 3 SU carbs Transmission: 4-Speed manual Suspension: Independent Front with Torsion bars Color exterior: British Racing Green Color interior: Tan Wheels: Chrome Wire Wheels Brakes: Dunlop Disc Brakes Vin #: 875180 Engine #: R1270-9 Gearbox #: LB376JS

This spectacular numbers-matching BRG over Tan first-generation XKE outside bonnet latch roadster has been fully restored by Classic Showcase, and is available to collectors worldwide. These first generation E-Types offer some of the most sought-after features like flat floors and welded louvers.

This particular roadster is number 180 in early E-type production history, is a Southern California car, and presents simply wonderful today. We performed a comprehensive rotisserie restoration to this rare XKE to that of a show-driver level, and included: a complete, documented vehicle disassembly, with the vehicle body fully worked, metal finished, fitted, and leaded as needed, with all body parts and chrome fitted to the car; It was primed, sealed, and had a base coat applied, along with receiving a clear coat, and finally color sanding and buffing to the beautiful finish you see today. All systems have been gone through and were restored and replaced as necessary. The engine, transmission, clutch, and hydraulic systems were fully restored, and the car received all new rubber, grommets and seals. The upholstery was restored by our master trimmers throughout. The roadster's parts and components have also been restored in the proper colors and finishes as well, using NOS parts wherever possible.

As with all of our early E-Type show and show-driver level restorations, strict attention to detail was being given because of the importance of this early, highly original car. An MP4 video of the restoration process, along with a Heritage Certificate of authenticity will accompany the sale of the vehicle. This first generation XKE is a sharp looking Cat that is sure to bring joy to those looking to compete, or simply to collect as a Blue Chip investment. Own the best, drive the best, and experience the excitement that only a first generation E-Type can deliver!

Auction description:

Lot 34

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 'External Bonnet-Latch' Roadster

Chassis no. 875180

Engine no. R1270-9 3,781cc DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder Engine

3 SU Carburetors

265bhp at 5,500rpm

4-Speed Manual Transmission

4-Wheel Independent Suspension

4-Wheel Disc Brakes

*The early, first-generation E-Type

*Amongst the most desirable variant of E-Types

*Exquisite restoration by marque experts

*Original, numbers matching engine

*Certified by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust

This extremely early, very desirable, and hard to find external bonnet-latch, flat-floor E-Type Roadster was manufactured on July 6th, 1961. This E-Type was originally finished in Cream exterior over a red leather Interior with a black convertible soft top. This left-hand drive example was dispatched from the factory on July 17th, 1961 and exported to Jaguar Cars in New York. Chassis No. 875180 is the 180th E-Type Roadster constructed out of a total of 385 'External Bonnet-Latch' Roadsters built for the North American market. The Jaguar Heritage Certificate does not have a record of the original dealership who sold the car; eventually it did end up making its way to the warm climate of Southern California.

In 2007, this early E-Type Roadster was the recipient of a documented full rotisserie restoration performed at the hands of Jaguar experts Classic Showcase in Southern California. Very strict attention to detail was given for this restoration due to the significance of being such and early and original example. This first generation XKE' restoration brought the car to show level going through all of the correct steps on a body off reconditioning. Prior to paint, the body was completely gone through and sanded down to bare metal, the metal was prepared and smoothed while all the body parts and chrome pieces were mounted to the car ensuring the best fit and panel gaps were achieved. The body was chosen to receive a fresh color change to British Racing Green, arguably one of the finest shades to adorn these beautiful vehicles. The Roadster was carefully disassembled and documented, then received primer, sealer, base coat, clear coat and finally, color sanding and buffing to result in the stunning finish seen today. New rubber and seals were installed, while a new Tan leather interior, panels, new carpets and black convertible top were custom made, fitted and installed by the talented team at Classic Showcase.

The magnificent 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I External Bonnet-Latch Roadster featured here is finished in classic and highly desirable British Racing Green over a tan leather interior and complemented by a black folding convertible top. A no-expense-spared show-level rotisserie restoration was performed by Marquis experts and driven just 1,500 test miles since completion. Fully documented with its Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, receipts, and a complete DVD of the full restoration process. This exquisite example still retains its original numbers-matching engine and is one of the finest in existence.  This extremely early, very desirable, and hard-to-find external bonnet-latch, flat-floor E-Type Roadster was manufactured on July 6th, 1961 and was the 180th E-Type Roadster constructed out of a total of 385 'External Bonnet-Latch' Roadsters built for the North American market. Featuring the initial, purest iteration of the famed E-Type styling, this Roadster contains the prized features unique to the earliest examples produced (of which this is), including the exterior bonnet-latches, welded louvers, and flat floors. All of these features were later abandoned in the name of practicality and production costs, and make this a particularly notable, rare example of one of the world's most iconic sports cars. Seldom do early external bonnet examples like this come to market especially restored to this level! I personally believe the investment potential of this extremely rare Jaguar E-Type Series I External Bonnet-Latch will grow beyond your imagination!
