Completed at Jaguar's Browns Lane works on January 10, 1964, this lovely Series I 3.8-Liter Roadster was configured in Carmine Red over Black leather with left-hand drive steering and destined for the North American market. The new Jaguar was dispatched from the works on February 3, 1964, and headed to Jaguar Cars New York, which is listed as the selling dealer on the Jaguar issued Heritage Trust Certificate.
The earliest history of this Jag is yet unknown at the time of cataloging, but it was restored in the mid-1990s to a very high level—at which time the interior and top were changed from black to tan—and the restoration has stood the test of time. Moving out east, the penultimate owner, a gentleman from the Philadelphia area, acquired the car in the early aughts. Happy with the cosmetics but feeling the motor not quite up to the quality of the looks, he sent the car to Cloverleaf Services in Malvern, Pennsylvania to bring things up to snuff. Cloverleaf rebuilt the motor to a slightly higher spec, including balancing and blueprinting it—invoices on record detail the work completed. The current owner, who has had the car for a few years now, redid the steering rack last winter and has made sure that the fluid services have been completed.
Most importantly, the original engine and cylinder head have remained with the car since leaving the factory—the transmission has been swapped with a fully synchronized unit from a later 4.2 model but the original transmission is included. Described by the seller as a silky smooth, rocket ship fast car, it will be accompanied by service records and its Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate. Expertly restored E-Types, like the one presented here, are highly sought after by collectors all around the world. With the vehicle on offer being in such fine condition, there is no better opportunity to put yourself behind the wheel of one of the most iconic sports cars of the 20th Century.
