Between 1961 and 1974 Jaguar designed and built the E-Type or XK-E for North America, and quite literally might be one of the most gorgeous cars of all time, even Enzo Ferrari thought so. If that is not saying something, I am not sure about your stance. The E-Type was based on Jaguars D-Type racing car which had won Le Mans three years in a row beginning in 1955. In addition to it being beautiful, it ranked in the top tier of cars by most publications. This particular excellent “driver quality” example that I am excited to represent comes out of long term ownership and has remained mostly original with what I can tell one re-paint many many years ago. Meaning, this is not a show queen with some imperfection in the cosmetics, all original interior with some seat tears and the tattered but all there convertible soft-top. It appears that this car was purchased many years ago and just driven and maintained when something was needed. No, I do not have a British Heritage Cert, but from what I can tell the red is correct, the drivetrain appears to be correct and most of all, this car starts very nicely, idles quietly, the choke works, lights and gauges work as well. Heck, it even has a 8-track player with a Sonny and Cher 8-track still in it. I have personally driven this car and it is truly delightful, smooth under both acceleration and braking, the syncros in the transmission seem good and there appears to be no rattling or clunking coming from anywhere. The underside is presentable for that of a driver, the pans are rust free as there is no major corrosion, just surface rust on some areas. In my opinion, this car would be great to do a cosmetic restoration or better yet….Leave it alone and just continue to drive the wheels off of it.
