This Series 1 1⁄2 E-Type Roadsters’ subsequent early history remains unknown, but the car is believed to have had few owners over the years that have taken very good care of the car. By the mid-2000s, the car was in the hands of a NY-based collector who did a great deal of work to the car, including a repaint in the cars original Carmen red color, as well as a rebuild of the suspension, braking and cooling systems. Furthermore, a new convertible top was installed, and a new clutch and stainless steel exhaust system were fitted.
Offered with a tool kit, jack, Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate and a substantial history file containing many records and receipts, a more original and better-preserved E-Type will be difficult to find.
Shod on period-looking Michelin tires, this numbers matching Series 1 1⁄2 Roadster is ready to be enjoyed on rallies and driving events such as the Copperstate 1000, or shown at concourse events.
