According to its accompanying JDHT Certificate, this stunning E-Type Series I Roadster was built on June 18, 1964, and originally finished in Opalescent Maroon over a maroon interior and fitted with a black soft top. On August 29th of that year, it was dispatched to North American distributor Jaguar Cars in New York.

While the Jaguar’s earlier history is not known, a substantial file of photos and parts receipts document a thorough restoration completed while in previous ownership by noted Jaguar specialist Images Auto Body in Campbell, California. Finished in 2016, the work included stripping of the bodywork to bare metal, replacing or refinishing all fasteners and trim, and reupholstering the interior in black leather. In 2019, the consignor hired Seattle-based Randall Fehr Restorations to service the E-Type, and sort numerous small issues, noted on invoices on file. Accompanied by tool and jack kits, the Roadster has been enjoyed by the consignor for the exhilarating driving experience that these cars are so renowned for.

Retaining its original engine and presenting as a top-level example, this E-Type Roadster grabs your attention with its tasteful and correct presentation, including bias-ply whitewall tires on classic chrome wire wheels. Whether a Jaguar aficionado or casual admirer, the next owner of this exquisite E-Type is sure to be beguiled by its many charms.
