Barrett-Jackson auction, Scottsdale, AZ, 1/17/2002, lot #728. Sports Car Market report:

A car that an auctioneer could honestly claim was "one of the best in the world." A flawless example, better than factory-new.

Sellers description:
This stunning 1962 Jaguar E-Type "Flat Floor" OTS is one of the finest examples we've had the pleasure to offer. A highly desirable early production car, it was first dispatched from Coventry on November 22nd 1961, bound for Jaguar North America. The car was titled as a 1962 upon its sale to its first owner, listed on the Heritage Certificate as J.L. Rein of Santa Monica, California. Beginning in 2002, it was treated to a full, concours-quality restoration by the Jaguar specialists at Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California. Exquisitely presented in stunning colors and specification, this strikingly beautiful car has scored numerous 99 and 100-point finishes in JCNA concours competition, won Best in Show at the 2016 International Jaguar Festival, scored a class win at the 2015 Arizona Concours, was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2015 and won its class at the 2016 Streets of Carmel show.

As expected of a world-class restoration, the body is impeccably prepared, straight, and correctly aligned. As this is a late 1961 production model, it is fitted with the correct inside bonnet locks in combination with the early-style weld-in louvers. The color is resplendent, and the quality of the paintwork is truly outstanding. Under bonnet and underbody surfaces are equally impressive, with the finish work done to better-than-new standards. Chrome bumpers and body fittings are excellent and the car rides on a set of sparkling chrome wire wheels with correct knockoffs and period correct Dunlop SP radial tires. No detail has been left untouched and the presentation is gorgeous.

The 3.8 liter XK engine is of course correctly finished to the minutest detail. The matching-numbers engine is topped with the original cylinder head. This is one of the last cars to feature the pumpkin orange-paint on the head, which was only used on engines built prior to November of 1961. Every aspect of the engine bay has been scrutinized and found to be absolutely correct according to JCNA standards. Showing only 400 miles since the restoration was completed, it remains in impeccable cosmetic and mechanical order.

The same level of care has been applied to the interior, which is beautifully restored in tan leather, carpet, and Hardura. The quality is stunning, and with limited mileage since being completed, it remains in beautifully fresh condition. Details include an original radio blank plate, correct early-style shift knob and the signature alloy instrument panel and console inserts. The Fawn soft top is taut and in excellent order, and is covered by a matching fawn canvas top boot when covered. Additional items include a correct original tool kit and jack, hinged front plate bracket, hammer, owner's manual, maintenance chart and even the original California black plates.

Since the restoration was completed, this car has been part of a significant collection of Jaguar sports cars, where it has been methodically maintained and brought to the highest level of detail. It remains in truly outstanding mechanical and cosmetic condition, and is ready for enjoyment on the road or on the lawns of the world's finest concours events.

Manufactured 6 November 1961 and dispatched to Jaguar Cars of New York on 22 November 1961, this car was reportedly sold new to an owner in Santa Monica, California. As an early production car, it features flat floor pans, welded bonnet louvers, and high-back seats with an aluminum dash and console. In the early 2000s, the car is said to have been fully restored by Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California. Originally finished in Opalescent Bronze, the car is now strikingly presented in gold over brown leather upholstery with a fawn fabric convertible soft top and matching fawn fabric top boot.

As confirmed by an accompanying copy of its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, the car retains its numbers-matching 3.8-liter engine, cylinder head, and body. Furthering the car’s detailed restoration, the spark plug valley is correctly painted Pumpkin Orange, a finish carried over from the XK150 and unique to early Series 1 E-Type engines. Since its restoration, the car has won Best in Show at the 2016 International Jaguar Festival in Scottsdale, Arizona as well as multiple 100-point evaluations at Jaguar Clubs of North America concours events.

A stunning Series 1 E-Type is a hallmark of any serious collection and this early, open-two-seat example, with its numbers-matching engine and cylinder head and striking gilded livery, presents an enticing opportunity.
