This particular E-Type is one of the most sought-after being an early Series 1 convertible car. In fact, this one was just the 54th to leave the production line in 1961. In addition to its provenance, judges admired the ground-up restoration perfectly executed by E-Type UK.
Prior to its restoration work, the car was in a non-original shade of green and had been reupholstered to a different specification. E-Type UK worked to find out how the car left the factory in 1961 before stripping it down and returning the E-Type to its original Imperial Maroon colour. Where possible every nut and bolt was disassembled, cleaned, and reattached to the E-Type — even the original spot weld patterns were consulted.
E-Type UK’s Founder Marcus Holland commented: “We’ve had an exceptionally busy concours season that has seen E-Type UK and sister company DM Historics restorations shown at several world-class concours including Pebble Beach, and to finish our concours season with this Best in Class win further demonstrates the exceptional talent of our restoration team.”
The Jaguar E-Type was produced between 1961 and 1975, giving it a lengthy 14-year production run. Throughout its life, the successful British sports car was developed and eventually housed a 5.3-litre V12 engine by its final generation. The original Series 1 cars remain the the most valuable today.
