This is an incredible, matching numbers car, first generation and very early production car. According to Factory Records and as listed on the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, this Series 1 Left Hand Drive 3.8l Fixed Head Coupe was delivered to a Mr Hankey of Newport Beach California. It was the 38th left hand drive coupe built, and with the late start in the first year of production, just 398 rolled off the line at Coventry in 1961. After its early life in California, this E type found its way to Fox Island Washington in the 70's, and has remained in that area since. The last owner, an elderly British gentleman, acquired the car in 2000 and enjoyed it for several years before embarking on a painstaking and total restoration that was completed in the spring of 2014. The car was completely disassembled and taken to bare metal. All of the original body panels retained and restored and professionally refinished in Opalescent Dark Green. The chrome trim, bright work, and correct wire wheels are all new or replated and the interior is totally new, including top grade Cinnamon leather upholstery, restored original wood rim steering wheel, new carpets, new door panels, new headliner and new correct alloy dash/console fascias unique to the early Series 1 cars, tough the complete original instruments were retained. Likewise all mechanical systems including the suspension, brakes and the correct 3.8 l engine were totally rebuilt, with a few choice upgrades made for driving enjoyment, notably a manifolds-back stainless steel exhaust system, alternator and high capacity aluminum radiator. Included with purchase is an organized notebook with before, during and after restoration photographs, receipts. Also the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate and photos of the factory's hand-written production log books showing this car's build data. The very earliest Series 1 cars in the lineage of the iconic XKE are highly desirable, and this, the 38th LHD coupe built, is a premium example in every regard.
