1964 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Fixed Head Coupe
Chassis no. 889896
Body no. V 2400
Complete restoration by marque specialists
Gorgeous authentic color combination of blue metallic over grey

This Series 1 3.8-Litre Fixed Head Coupe is an outstanding example of the car that electrified the automotive world. The E-Type was purchased new in Mansfield, Ohio, in 1964 and after a few years of limited use, the original owners sold the car to its current caretaker in 2003. The coupe was enjoyed for several more years and then entrusted to Jaguar expert Pierre Gusman for a complete body-off restoration. According to the owner, the car proved to be rust-free and a sound candidate for refurbishment. Further, a meticulous inspection of the coupe, including its hydraulic and electrical systems, drivetrain, and suspension resulted in components being reconstructed, refinished, or replaced with new parts as necessary. The engine was rebuilt; the four-speed manual transmission was upgraded to a five-speed manual synchromesh unit; and the factory disc brakes were exchanged for Wilwood disc brakes. Should the next owner prefer the original four-speed transmission, it is included with the car.
The E-Type's exterior received scrupulous attention. The factory-correct light blue metallic finish was beautifully brought to life. Tires show light wear, and the original wire wheels and knock-off hubcaps shine. The Jaguar-proper color scheme continues with grey leather hides covering the bucket seats and color-coordinated carpeting. Service and restoration documents accompany the car, as do the original jack, spare tire, and tool kit.
This coupe's next owner will be able to take pride in a renowned British car that combines advanced performance from its racing and touring heritage with high styling that rivals any sports car of its day.
