Jaguar E-type SI 3.8 Convertible 1962 LHD I have the pleasure to present to all the Jaguar E-type enthusiasts this amazingly original, one owner-driver, low mileage SI E-type. Chassis 878354 was initially sold by Peter Lindner, the famous Jaguar dealer in Frankfurt - Germany. All documentation + condition of this E-type confirm that this is a one-owner-driver car! Mr. Haselwood from Ohio - USA purchased the Jaguar directly in Germany in 1962. When he died the Jaguar was transferred into his wifes name Mary Haselwood. It seems that from that moment the Jaguar was never driven anymore. When Mrs Haselwood died in 1997 this E-type was inherited by a niece who 12 years later in 2009 passed the Jaguar on to a classic car enthusiast from Alabama who repaired what needed attention (detailed list is available), started the Jaguar up again and finally sold this Jaguar E-type to me early 2012. The speedo indicates 45.773 miles which could very well be the original mileage! Even the Michelin XAS tyres, which are absolutely not worn, are very old and date back to 1970... The exterior body is very sound but shows her age, which with the nicely patinated Opalescent Silver Grey paint is, in my opinion, a rather attractive look. Superb are the original red leather seats which are still incredibly nice for a 50 year old sportscar. Some other trim items however, such as door panels and floor mats, had to be replaced. The 3.8 engine (cilinderhead and engine block are both matching numbers with chassis number!) runs beautifully smooth with almost no mechanical noises. The six cilinder produces, partly thanks to a full new stainless steel exhaust, a pleasing, slightly sporty, typical XK sound. The original Moss gearbox shifts neatly, the servo assited brakes work properly. In conclusion: this Jaguar E-type shows clearly her unmosted, totally original, low mileage condition and drives accordingly well!
