Launched in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar created a story with the E-type that just continues to run. Acclaimed by the worlds press it has gone on to provide interesting editorial for a generation ever since. During its fourteen year production run Jaguar used three power-plants, the 3.8, 4.2 litre and finally the 5.3 litre V12. The best driving and most nimble derivative arrived in 1967 in the form of the Series 1.5. It came with the carry-over 4.2 litre engine, an all synchromesh gearbox and uprated seating and interior.

Available at today's auction is a 1968 Series 1.5 Roadster, it should be noted that only the ‘external bonnet lock' E-types are rarer in terms of RHD production numbers than this car. Only 319 RHD cars were produced for the home market.

The series 1.5 still retained the slim rear lights above the rear bumper but the previously enclosed front lights were now open and came with a chrome surround. These were even different to the Series 2 replacements. The seats were restyled and provided much greater comfort than the earlier bucket type. The 4.2 engine now had finned rocker covers and the water header tank was repositioned onto the bulkhead. An alternator was fitted which put an end to any issues there may have been in the past with electrical and charging problems.

This E-type was subject to an extensive eight year restoration between 1982 and 1990. The quality of the work is a great testament to the condition it is in today which means that it appears as a very original factory car. The extensive history file contains MOT's back to 1974 and also accounts for the gap from 1982-90. The original buff log book is present and confirms six owners over its 112,000 miles life, two being garage owners. The original handbook is present with the very comprehensive history file

Jaguar E -types have become benchmark cars to the classic car values. this is such a car and will remain as a true motoring icon.
