Desirable XKE Series 1 - Covered-Headlight Specification

 

The Model: The iconic E-Type is one of the most beautiful cars of all time. Enzo Ferrari famously declared it to be, “The most beautiful car in the world!” The fact that the Museum of Modern Art maintains an E-Type in their permanent collection gives testament to why the desire for E-Type ownership is high among car enthusiasts of the past three generations. Styled by aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer as a replacement for the upright XK150, the low sleek curves of the new E-Type stunned the motoring press in 1961. Jaguar had to rush a second prototype to the Geneva Motor Show to meet demands for press demonstrations. While the world clamored for the new E-Type, cars trickled from the production lines as Jaguar completely underestimated demand. As production increased, Jaguar continued to develop their icon. More torque from a larger engine and a fully synchronized gearbox transformed drivability. Better seating and more storage upgraded  the interior. The refinement of the covered headlight 4.2 liter Series 1 coupe represents one of the most desirable E-Types.


The Car: This British Racing Green E-Type is the epitome Jaguar’s Grace, Space and Pace mantra of the 1960s. This E-Type has just undergone cosmetic engine-out restoration following a complete engine rebuild. The restoration team paid incredible attention to detail with the use of factory-correct components throughout the project. Detailed work included stunning paint and new chrome plating. New wire wheels make this car stand out and are shod in fresh period-correct redline radial tires. The sumptuous tan leather interior is resplendent with numerous fresh details like the new carpeting, door panels, and factory-spec wood steering wheel. This E-Type still has its numbers-matching 4.2-liter engine that runs and drives just like it should. Cooling is improved by the addition of a high-capacity aluminum radiator. The entire front and rear suspension systems were pulled and rebuilt with new disks, calipers and dampers. Detailed receipts document all of the recent work. E-Type coupes have always represented outstanding value compared to the roadsters, but enthusiasts have recognized the practicality and thoroughly attractive lines of the coupe, propelling a surge in collectability. Don’t miss your chance to pick up this stunning example.
