The Jaguar E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975 and itscombination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricingestablished the marque as an icon of 1960''s motoring. A greatsuccess for Jaguar, more than 70,000 E-Types were sold during itslifespan. The Series I was introduced, initially for export only,in March 1961 with the domestic market launch coming four monthslater in July 1961.The cars at this time used the triple SUcarburetted 3.8 litre, six cylinder XK engine from theXK150S. The first 300 cars built had flat floors and externalbonnet latches and are considered rare and more valuable. Afterthat, the floors were dished to provide more leg room and the twinhood latches moved to inside the car with the 3.8 litre engineincreased to 4.2 litres in October 1964. The Series I½, althoughthere was never a fixed specification for this unofficial model,can be recognised by glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), small''mouth'' opening at the front, signal lights and tail-lights abovebumpers and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear. Thesewere the last cars to feature the sporty toggle switches on thedashboard.This delightful Jaguar E-Type was originally registered in theUK on 21st June 1967 and is supplied with a comprehensive historyfile, including the original buff logbook. The current vendor hasbeen the proud custodian of HND555E for the last 30 years and feelsthe time is right for this Series I coupé to be enjoyed by anotherenthusiast. Finished in Carmen red with tan interior, this exampleis supplied with a V5 registration document and current MoT testcertificate. The 4.2 engine runs smoothly and quietly and we areadvised this 2+2 coupé drives in a manner to be expected. Given themodest estimate, this is the perfect chance to perhaps turn a longheld dream into reality.
