Chassis no. 877154

Offered here is an incredibly well-preserved, time capsule Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster. Presented in a rarely seen color combination from new, this car was completed in black over red leather interior. Well kept under long term ownership, the red leather interior has stood the test of time and proudly wears nearly 60 years of patina, as does the exterior paint which is mostly original to the car, making the car a great candidate for preservation class. All chrome and interior accessories show very little wear or oxidation, consistent with claims of secure storage its entire life.

Having covered fewer than 23,000 miles from new, this E-Type is numbers matching, as confirmed in the Jaguar heritage certificate, but also seen on the date plate with matching chassis and engine numbers. Mechanically, the car is in very original condition, being maintained in running order. Under the bonnet you'll also see signs of 60 years of meticulous maintenance, giving this car personality that can't be seen in a restored example. In the rear of the car, the tan carpeting is a lovely contrast to the black body and the car retains a spare tire.

This open two-seater roadster, being an early first-generation E Type with covered headlights and dainty tail lights, is considered by many to be the definitive example of the model. In order to keep torsional rigidity in the roadster, design elements needed to be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Details like this can be seen in areas like the boot lid, which is a gently curved panel with edges turned over a cruciform pressing, which leave the car with a pleasant, and stiff external structure.

Tasteful chrome touches iconic to the E-Type are seen in beautifully preserved condition, running across the bae of the windscreen, top of the doors, door handles, tail light trim rings, three-piece chrome beading around the top and sides of the tonneau panel edge and in the number plate area, a Jaguar chrome plated script on the boot lid.

This beautifully preserved Series I E-Type is fit for the finest collection of Jaguars or enthusiast looking for exquisite preservation examples of the marque. This example offers originality without cosmetic condition being compromised, showing very little signs of use in its 60 years of life, available now for use in vintage rallying or as a cornerstone to any fine collection.

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?
