Opalescent Blue with Dark Blue Leather and Grey Piping

This particular example is believed to have just 23,108 mile and has a truly remarkable background. Collected at the factory in 1962 by its first owner Stanly Coolidge from North Hollywood, this wonderful car has had a remarkable 16,000 mile odyssey across Europe on UK registration 3246 WK prior to exportation to California where a 43 year-long slumber began, never to be road registered in the US during that time.

Fast forward to 2007, a comprehensive restoration was carried out to exacting standards and details. Northern California based Jaguar expert Jim Groom was entrusted with the rebuilt of the engine, rear suspension, and sundries, and Jaguar Heritage technician (and in house Jaguar C-Type and D-Type expert) Richard Mason was flown to California- complete with Jaguar's factory tooling!- to perform the completion and reassembly. The resulting car is, finished to the marvelous specifications it was originally delivered, is truly breathtaking.

In the course of reconditioning, just four thoughtful changes were made: CopperCraft brakes were substituted and the originals retained, an electric fan was fitted, the "swoopier" Mk. I Jaguar script was added to the rear of the car, and period left and right mirrors were fitted.

After the restoration was complete, the lovely E-Type was invited for display and The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering. Following that, but prior to its participation at the 50th Anniversary of the E-Type in Geneva, it was shipped to the Jaguar Prototype Shop, where it received considerable detail preparation by factory technicians prior to being enjoyed on the E-Type tour by the present enthusiast owners.

This wonderful E-Type and its fascinating story has been featured in Jaguar World's June 2010 issue, is accompanied by wonderful historic documentation including the ruffled maps and hotel brochures from Mr. Stanley Coolidge's European odyssey, as well as a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirming it to be matching numbers throughout and in its original delivery colors inside and out. Also included is a very smart booklet outlining the unique history this car has enjoyed.

Wearing the specialty plates "E92", this example shares a special place in history, not so very far away from the E-Type which wowed the motoring world at the Geneva Motor Show, some 51 years ago!

This E-Type, believed to have covered just 23,108 miles from new, and in irreproachable fully restored condition, will surely catch the eye of the discerning Jaguar enthusiast favoring low mileage cars with unique history. It is "One of the few cars to have retained its association with the factory"- Richard Mason, Jaguar Heritage Vehicle Engineer, Browns Lane.

1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Coupe For Sale

3,781cc DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder Engine
3 SU Carburetors
265bhp at 5,500rpm
4-Speed Manual Transmission
4-Wheel Independent Suspension

*Low mileage, exquisitely restored Series 1 E-Type with exciting history
*Toured over the continent by the first owner after factory delivery
*Matching numbers example in factory correct appearance
*Participant in the 50th Anniversary run from Coventry to Geneva
*Accompanied by extensive history file and Heritage Trust Certificate

Completed in September of 1962, this sensational left-hand-drive Series 1 E-Type Coupe was finished then just like it appears today, with the exterior painted in Opalescent Silver Blue, neatly complemented by a dark blue interior trimmed with light blue piping. The new E-Type had been ordered by Jaguar Cars of New York, but as noted on the car's Heritage Trust Certificate, it was slated for Personal Export Delivery at the factory. Fitted with UK registration number '3246 WK', it was dispatched from the works to the first owner, Mr. Stanley Coolidge, on September 28, 1962.

Mr. Coolidge, a resident of North Hollywood, California, USA, would set out for quite a journey in his new Jaguar on that September day in 1962. Starting out from the Cumberland Hotel in London, he embarked on a continental tour of northern and southern Europe, ending up in Portugal where the car received its first service. From there Mr. Coolidge would ship the Jaguar back to his home in California.

It remains unclear for exactly how long Mr. Coolidge kept the car, but it is believed to have remained in California for many years. In 2005, the E-Type was discovered in a San Joaquin County, California barn by well-known enthusiast Dick McClure, who subsequently purchased it. Although in need of a restoration, the old Jaguar showed less than 17,000 miles on the odometer, and was largely original and complete, still with the old factory installed UK plates present. In fact, it's believed that the car had never been registered for road use in the US up to this point in time. McClure was initially intending to restore the car for himself, but instead sold it to his old Mille Miglia companion Charles Cross.

Mr. Cross soon embarked on a restoration to bring the car back to its factory delivered appearance. A group of Berkeley-area specialists were appointed for the job. Alan George did the paintwork, Jim Groom the mechanicals, and retired Jaguar factory technician, Richard Mason, came over to help with final assembly. Upon completion, the stunning Jaguar was shown at the 2007 edition of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, and was the following year displayed under Jaguar North America's banner at the Los Angeles Auto Show. In 2010, Jaguar World featured the E-Type in an extensive article, describing the car's exciting history.

As noted on the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, the E-Type took part in the 50th Anniversary run from Coventry to Geneva in March 2011. Before the rally, it was prepared in Jaguar's factory workshops there at Browns Lane where it was built half a century earlier.

Today, this exceptional early E-Type Coupe presents beautifully in and out, shows less than 24,000 miles on the odometer, and has recently been serviced at Symbolic Motorcars. The car's extensive history file includes its Heritage Trust Certificate, a booklet and binder documenting the car with pre-restoration photos, restoration photos and the magazine article. An early iteration of the most pure and attractive E-Type Series 1 Coupe such as this will always receive attention, deservedly, and this car's exciting history and early UK registration set it apart from the rest.

Superbly restored by marque specialists

Completed the 50th Anniversary run from Coventry to Geneva

Well documented, including Jaguar Heritage Certificate

This Jaguar is the crème de la crème of the E-Type – an all-matching-numbers example with an extraordinary history, superb restoration, and presenting in exquisite Opalescent Silver Blue. Ordered by Jaguar Cars of New York, this first-series fixed head coupe was received directly from the UK factory by its first owner, Stanley Coolidge of North Hollywood, California, on 28 September 1962. Embarking upon a European odyssey, Mr. Coolidge toured the continent, clocking some 16,000 miles.

Ultimately, the E-Type was shipped to California, where it remained in storage for over 40 years. Finally discovered in California’s San Joaquin Valley, the car was purchased in 2005 by Jaguar enthusiast Dick McClure, who then passed it to his Mille Miglia partner Charles Cross. Mr. Cross assigned the car to marque specialists for an exhaustive restoration, overseen by Richard Mason, retired Jaguar Heritage engineer.

The car emerged in 2007 and was shown at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, followed by the Los Angeles Auto Show and featured extensively in Jaguar World magazine. Following a full service at the Jaguar factory in Browns Lane, England, chassis 886871 participated in the 50th Anniversary run from Coventry to Geneva in 2011. Four years later the car was acquired by its current owner and in 2018 was invited to represent Jaguar at the grand opening of Jaguar Land Rover’s new U.S. headquarters at Mahwah, New Jersey.

Other than the upgraded exhaust manifold and an aluminum radiator, this E-Type is factory correct and currently in excellent condition with 24,000 miles (believed original), a documented history, restoration records, touring scrapbooks, and Jaguar Heritage Certificate. There can be no greater standard-bearer for the iconic Jaguar E-Type than this exceptional example for its extraordinary history, prestigious celebrity, and stunning beauty.
