Car listed in photos section of E-Type lovers pages:

Here are a few photos of my 1964 E-Type OTS, chassis no. 881444. It is one of the last 500 3.8 liter E-Types built by Jaguar. As a late transitional model, it benefits from the more sophisticated interior typically associated with the 4.2 liter E-Types while retaining the racing heritage of the 3.8 liter drivetrain.

The car was purchased in 1986 from a fellow in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. At the time, the car was a "fright pig" (a term familiar to those of you who subscribe to Sports Car Market). Purchased by the seller in an estate sale after the car sat in a barn for over a decade, he sold it to me after several years of trying to get and keep it running by fixing parts as they broke, which I was told was as often as the sun setting in the western sky.

The car was a perfect restoration project. All the numbers matched and all other components on the vehicle were original and intact. It even had the original fiberglass hardtop which to this day I regret leaving with the seller as part of our deal.

However, the car was probably several hundred pounds heavier from all of the paint-on-paint jobs it suffered over the years. In addition, the front rotors were "wafer thin," the rear brakes were frozen solid, the engine, which looked like a large bar of brown butter, could not go above 3,000 rpm, and the trunk floor provided flow-through ventilation for the rest of the vehicle which at the time was a term used rather loosely.

The bulk of the mechanical restoration was performed in 1986 by Tom Reinsmith of Emmaus, Pennsylvania, a true craftsman and Jaguar afficianado. Since then, regular maintenance and simple repairs were and are performed by yours truly. Major items are addressed by Ed Miller of Stormville, New York, a superb mechanic and noted Jaguar expert.

The car was re-painted black, its original color, in 1991 by a fireman in Wantagh, New York, using Diamont base and clear coat polyurethane. The finish, polished and waxed every year, has yet to show any signs of age.

For the final phase of the restoration, after I prepped the car, the interior was installed in 1992 by British Auto USA in Manchester, New Hampshire. The original color scheme (red interior with black hood) was retained. To describe the job they did as perfect would be classic British understatement.

The car, though not shown often, has nevertheless won several awards (1993, JCNA - First in Driven Class; 1996, Greenwich Concours E’Elegance, Chief Judge’s Award (selected by David Brownell of Hemmings Motor News); and 1997, JCNA – First in Driven Class, to name a few). The car is entered as a driver because that is exactly what it is. Other than a small pancake fan added to the front of the radiator, the car is correct, mechanically and cosmetically, all the way down to its Dunlop SP series tires.

I currently garage the car in Connecticut and still get goosebumps every time I push the starter button and hear that motor growl.

Lot #153717

This 1964 Jaguar underwent mechanical refurbishment work that spanned over a decade beginning in the mid-1980s and included rebuilding its 3.8-liter DOHC inline-six, four-speed manual transmission, limited-slip rear end, independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Cosmetically, the car has been refinished in black with a coordinated top and red leather upholstery, and it also has 15” wire wheels, Koni shocks, three SU carburetors, PerTronix ignition, a stainless-steel exhaust system, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. This XKE is now offered at no reserve on dealer consignment with refurbishment and service records, a framed original warranty, a maintenance chart, judging score sheets, a framed Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, and tire changing tools in addition to owner’s, restoration, and workshop manuals and a clean New York title in the owner’s name.

Series I E-Types were equipped with covered headlights and taillights mounted above the rear bumper. This example left the factory in black and was repainted during the aforementioned refurbishment. Equipment includes a black soft top and a matching boot cover with red piping as well as a louvered clamshell hood, triple wipers, dual center-exit exhaust outlets, and chrome wraparound bumpers with overriders. Paint chips on the front end were repaired and the paint was blended in 2014.

Chrome wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-offs and mounted with 185VR15 Dunlop SP Sport tires, and a matching spare with a Riken tire is stowed in the trunk. Steering is provided by a rack-and-pinion, and braking is handled by four-wheel discs, the rears of which are mounted inboard. Koni shocks were installed during the refurbishment.

Red leather upholstery covers the low-back bucket seats, center console, and door panels. A Blaupunkt push-button AM/FM radio is mounted ahead of the shifter.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel fronts a 160-mph Smiths speedometer and a matching tachometer with a 5,500-rpm redline and an inset clock. An ammeter and gauges that monitor coolant temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level are positioned in the center dashboard above a row of toggle switchgear. The five-digit odometer shows 60k miles, and the speedometer was recalibrated in 1998.

The 3.8-liter DOHC inline-six was rated at 265 horsepower when new and features double overhead camshafts, a straight-port aluminum cylinder head, triple SU HD8 sidedraft carburetors, PerTronix ignition, and a stainless-steel dual exhaust system. A rebuild of the engine in 1986 included machining the cylinder head, performing a valve job, and replacing the timing chains and tensioners. Cracks near the battery tray were repaired in 1993, and the water pump was replaced in 2013.

Engine number RA-6628-9 stamped on the gold-painted cylinder head matches the numbers stamped on the engine block and the commission plate, photos of which can be viewed in the gallery along with additional stamps and castings.

Power is routed to the rear wheels through a Moss four-speed manual gearbox and a Salisbury limited-slip differential.

The framed Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate lists a production date of April 16, 1964, and distribution through Jaguar Cars New York, along with the factory serial numbers and colors.

The car is also accompanied by refurbishment and service records, a framed original warranty, a maintenance chart, Jaguar Clubs of North America judging score sheets from 1997, and tire changing tools in addition to owner’s, restoration, and workshop manuals.
