1962 Jaguar TYPE E COUPÉ 3.8
French registration title An icon of the 1960s, the Jaguar E-Type is one of the automotive myths of the 20th century; the Series 1 with its 3.8-litre engine is one of the most sought-after of the series. The car that illustrates these pages, a Series 1 3.8 litre with aluminium console, was built in September 1962 and delivered new to the Parisian dealer Delecroix, in left-hand drive; it was then Opalescent Silver Grey, with a red leather interior It was extensively restored between 1995 and 1998 by its third owner, from a completely bare body (photo file available); the body was repainted in British Racing Green, and the interior was redone in beige leather Even if there are a few defects (list on request: old paintwork that has been worked on, door adjustment, slight engine leak, etc), the car is in good cosmetic and mechanical condition; the cylinder head has recently been rebuilt, the cooling system revised with the fitting of an aluminium radiator, and all the front axle ball joints have been changed E-Types of French origin are rare on the market, and this fourth hand will appeal to the discerning enthusiast looking for an example ready to travel the length and breadth of France and Europe
