Lot 119: Jaguar E-Type S1 FHC
From it's launch in 1961 to it's demise in 1975, the E-Type maintained the mantle of the most beautiful sports car in the world. While the Roadster may top the classic price poll, it was always the Series One fixed head coupe that took the prize for the best looking E-Type.
This example is a late, 4.2 Series One, which benefits from the upgrades to the seats and later gearbox yet retains the original and stunning lines of the Series One, which were compromised on the Series Two.
The car has benefited from an older restoration over a number of years and is offered complete with a photo record, extensive history file, including 135 invoices totalling over Â£20,000, a number of previous MoT certificates, a Heritage Certificate plus original manual and original log book
Finished in red with black leather, the car is equipped with wire wheels, Webasto sunroof, Coopercraft uprated brakes, stainless steel exhaust manifold and a Sony CD/Radio with remote.
The Series One E-Type represents outstanding value, when compared to its period competitors. Why these beautiful cars are not double the price is beyond me but they cannot remain at this level for much longer. BR> The photograph is a of a similar but not identical car.
