Some 50 years after its debut, Jaguar’s E-Type continues to captivate virtually all enthusiasts today. While all are prized, none is more so than a well-preserved and highly original Series I roadster that is epitomized by this example. According to the accompanying JDHT Certificate, this wonderful Series I 3.8-Litre Roadster was purchased new by F. Stanley of New York City. In February 1965, it was sold via The Momo Corporation in New York to Jorn-Olaf C. Weber, an IBM engineer who in 1999 left the E-Type to his daughters, who then retained the vehicle until October 2009, when the current owner acquired it. At the time of purchase, the E-Type was understood to have never been repainted, with indicated mileage believed to be correct.

Offered with less than 30,000 miles recorded, the E-Type benefits from a complete service, plus clutch and fuel-system work during the present ownership. The upholstery and convertible top were replaced during the 1990s and, more recently, a stainless-steel exhaust system including headers was installed by the consignor.

Displaying a beautiful patina, the E-Type includes the original hardtop and ceramic-coated exhaust manifold, tool kit, jack, a new Thor hammer, numerous spare parts, and a car cover. Comprehensive documents including the 1965 Bill of Sale, JDHT Certificate of Authenticity, owner’s manual, articles, receipts, and photographs make this an E-Type worthy of careful consideration.
