 E Type Jaguar
Series 1, 4.2
2+2, Automatic, Right Hand Drive



 

The E-Type was initially designed and shown to the public as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer in two-seater coupé form (FHC or Fixed Head Coupé) and as a two-seater convertible (OTS or Open Two Seater). A "2+2" four-seater version of the coupé, with a lengthened wheelbase, was released several years later.




On its release Enzo Ferrari called it "The most beautiful car ever made".




Later model updates of the E-Type were officially designated "Series 2" and "Series 3", and over time the earlier cars have come to be referred to as "Series 1" and "Series 1½".




Of the "Series 1" cars, Jaguar manufactured some limited-edition variants, inspired by motor racing.




The New York City Museum of Modern Art recognised the significance of the E-Type's design in 1996 by adding a blue roadster to its permanent design collection, one of only six automobiles to receive the distinction.





This original E Type Jaguar series 1 4.2 litre 2+2 automatic was delivered to Dr CFM Fisher in Mddlesex on 23 June 1966. The car is still in its original black livery with tan leather trim.




The car has been living in Finland for the last few years and now has returned to the UK for sale. In good condition the car wants for nothing and will appeal to the man looking for a very original rust free car.
