Car to be at auction 3/10
1962 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Litre Roadster
Chassis No. 876822
Engine No. R4244-9
* Early, Matching-Numbers Example
* Sensational 2008 Restoration
* Certified by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust
* Concours-Winning Presentation
When the assembly of this striking Series 1 E-Type was completed on March 1, 1962 – only a year after the model debuted at the Geneva Motor Show – the car was finished in cream paint complemented by a red interior and a black top. Two weeks later, this export-bound example was dispatched to Jaguar Cars of New York for a long life of grand touring on America’s roads. While details of this car’s interim history are vague, it is known that the car eventually found its way to California where its current owner has made great strides in renewing the glorious presentation and establishing its heritage.
In 2008, this beautiful open two-seater received a thorough restoration conducted to the highest standards that has ensured the utmost in authenticity and correct presentation. Since this important work, only 200 miles have been added to the odometer, a guarantee that the next owner will amply reap the benefits of its immaculate visual details, proper presentation and smooth-running mechanics. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust has issued a Certificate of Authenticity for this sleek E-Type, affirming that the car is a correct, matching-numbers example.
The benefits of restoration and certification have already paid dividends at local California exhibitions, such as the 2008 Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance where the car took Best in Show. At a JCNA event in San Diego, this impressive E-Type garnered 99.72 points in judged scoring, failing to reach 100 only because the the license plate holder and jack were not present at the judging, but both of which are accounted for and included with the car.
Now featuring a tan soft top and accompanied by photo documentation of the restoration process, this expertly presented E-Type is a pristine example of the iconic model that returned Jaguar to the cutting edge of European sports car manufacturing. It is the perfect acquisition for the Jaguar enthusiast or the general collector seeking to add a quality early E-Type to his garage.
