From its electrifying March 1961 Geneva launch, Jaguar’s E-Type redefined the term “sports car” at one stroke. Careful development brought improved comfort; and during 1964, the DOHC “XK” engine was enlarged to 4.2 liters and matched to a full-synchromesh gearbox for heightened drivability. Iconic styling cues including beautifully covered headlamps were retained, making these late-Series I E-Types enduring objects of desire today.

This outstanding four-owner, late-Series I Roadster is an original left-handdrive Personal Export Delivery example sold new to a San Francisco resident. Subsequent known owners included Harley Cluxton III of Scottsdale and Michael Kelly of Chicago, and the consignor acquired the original and unrestored vehicle from Mr. Kelly’s estate in 1998. From 2005 through 2007, a complete restoration by the noted restorers at The Creative Workshop of Dania Beach, Florida, was performed using NOS parts as much as possible with select upgrades that included improved brakes, shock absorbers, and an aluminum radiator.

Confirming its excellence, the E-Type earned Best of Show at the November 2009 Festivals of Speed event in Miami. Maintained post-restoration by The Creative Workshop, this fabulous E-Type has accumulated only an additional 1,000 miles since work was completed. Complete with tools and a hood cover, this fabulous E-Type is stunning in its factory-specified livery and is the ideal choice to complete any mid-century collection.
