*Please note that this vehicle is titled 1966.
The 1965 Series I E-Type Roadster was significantly upgraded over the original 1961 design. The engine was increased to 4.2 litres for more torque, an all-synchromesh gearbox introduced, and brakes and electrics improved. This car’s Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate shows it as sold by Jaguar Cars of New York on July 6, 1965, to an owner in Ogden, Utah. After a spell in Michigan, it was sold in 2009 to a third owner, who was seeking a sound original car to restore. The owner first sent the E-Type to Harwood Enterprise in Victor, New York and then to Coventry Classics in Orlando, Florida, where longtime Jaguar Clubs of North America judge Tom Curren completed a spectacular two-year restoration costing approximately $250,000. The current owner, an avid collector who owns multiple show-winners, acquired the car in 2012.
Chassis 1E11193 has a strong competition record. It earned 99.96 points at the JCNA meet in Orlando, Florida, in May 2011, and won Best in Show. After taking 99.5 points at the JCNA Challenge Championship in Dublin, Ohio, in July 2011, it went on to earn a perfect 100 points in St. Augustine, Florida, winning Best in Show, the Jaguar Dealership and People’s Choice awards. It also scored 100 points and won Best in Class in November 2011 at the Winter Park Concours d’Elegance in Florida.
When not being shown, it has been stored in a climate-controlled garage and carefully driven and maintained as needed. This is a truly stunning E-Type.
