1961 Jaguar 3.8 E-type Roadster "Flat Floor"
* Chassis #: 875898
Itroduced in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and a 140 mph-plus top speed. The newcomer's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure, while a tubular spaceframe extended forward to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-liter unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150, and the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500 pounds (227kg) less than the XKl50; and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Tall drivers, though, could find the interior somewhat lacking in space, a criticism addressed by the introduction of footwells (and other, more minor modifications) early in 1962. But of all the versions of Jaguar's long-lived and much-loved sports car, it is the very early 'flat floor' 3.8-liter cars built prior to February 1962 which, for many enthusiasts, remain the most desirable of all.

This restored 3.8-liter 'flat floor' is fully deserving of the description of 'concours.' It is finished in Old English White with a black interior, and is accompanied by sundry invoices.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
