The 60-th anniversary of the Jaguar E-type has given this iconic sportscar lots of publicity and a serious boost in the interest among classic car enthusiasts. From the early 6-cilinder “Flat Floor” model in 1961 until the last 3-rd series in 1974 powered by the mighty V12 engine it is not so easy to choose the right model.
Over the years Marreyt Classics can rightly claim, after so many passed through our hands to restore or/and to sell to our international clientele, to be a Jaguar E-type specialist.
If you want our advice, we will answer that:
- we very much love the original design of the Series 1.
- we appreciate the technical and practical improvements available on the the 4.2
Also positive is the fact that this chassis number 1 E 11408 left the Jaguar factory on the 2-nd of September 1965 and was registered on the 15-th of the same month, which is excellent news, because for many classic car rallies and events the limit date is 1965.
According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate as with many E-types also this OTS E-type was initially sold new tot he USA (Texas) and found her way back to Europe (Belgium) later in life, where the sportscar benefitted from a thorough nut & bolt restoration by a well reputed Dutch classic Jaguar specialist, who respected rigorously the authenticity of the S1 model and selected the period correct and very attractive “Golden Sand” with beige upholstery colour combination.
This restoration has been described and documented in 2018 by a professional expertise and valuation, and, more important, very recently double checked and approved by our own very experienced classic car workshop.
The very nice “Indian Summer” we enjoy at the moment allowed us to take this Jaguar E-type out for testdriving and demonstration runs. The immediate WOW-feeling when driving this Jaguar confirms the car’s obvious excellent quality.
In conclusion: If you consider acquiring a Jaguar E-type, take advantage of our expertise and come and have a look at this very interesting Series 1 4.2 OTS Jaguar E-type.
