A celebrated design with race-derived engineering, this rare “flat floor” Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8-Litre Roadster was built on January 1, 1962, and purchased new by J.N. Angeleri of New Jersey. This E-Type possesses a well-documented provenance and has benefited from an expert restoration.

Between 2008 and 2015, this E-Type was entrusted to specialist Bassett’s of Rhode Island for restoration. During this process, a new convertible top was installed, the interior was reupholstered, and mechanical work was carried out, including a rebuild of the engine, rear axle, brakes, and suspension systems, as well as the fitting of a full synchromesh later-type Jaguar gearbox.

Following restoration, the E-Type was proven over several thousand miles and maintained at Bassett’s until acquisition in late 2015 by the Colorado-based consignor. Three JCNA concours showings culminated with a First in Class award at the 2018 Pikes Peak Concours; additionally, the E-Type participated in both the Copperstate 1000 (2016 and 2019) and Sports Car Market 1000 (2018) classic rallies. Accompanying items include correspondence and concours judging sheets, a JDHT Certificate, provenance report, an original roadside jack, a full concours tool roll with nearly all items original, owner’s and service manuals, spare parts for touring, a car cover, and the original gearbox. While certainly concours-worthy, this fabulous “flat floor” E-Type is capable of fast, enjoyable touring as Sir William Lyons intended, requiring only an enthusiastic new owner.
