The 4.2 litre Jaguar E-type was the natural evolution of the 3.8 Series 1 Jaguar E-type, with a larger engine and more luxurious interior to make it more suitable for the American market, the 4.2 litre E-type was regarded at its time as the more refined model.

This 1965 Series 1 4.2 FHC is a sought-after UK-market car with only two previous owners; its first owner kept the car all the way up 2010, 30 years of which it had sat in a derelict garage. It was then acquired by our customer who commissioned a full, no expense spared restoration with every E-Type UK upgrade possible to bring it up to modern standards. Therefore, the specification of this car is second-to-none; finished in its original Jaguar Heritage colours of Dark Blue with Red interior the restoration was completed over 3 years and then sold on to its current owner.

For the ultimate in E-Type performance, the following were fitted: individual throttle bodies with Emerald ECU, gas-flowed Series 3 XJ6 cylinder head designed to be coupled with fuel injection and larger valves; uprated cam shafts, main bearing bolts and oil pump; aluminium radiator and header tank with silicone hoses and electric fan; grooved and vented front discs with AP Racing 4-pot calipers; adjustable shocks and coilovers; full stainless steel sports exhaust; five-speed gearbox; and an aluminium bonnet.

As well as these performance upgrades, modifications were made to improve the day-to-day usability and comfort of the car greatly. These include: remote central locking, air conditioning, power steering, and a period-look radio with MP3 connectivity.

Finished in one of the greatest colour combinations to come from Jaguar and restored to perfection with no expense spared, this FHC E-Type has only completed 870 miles since its restoration. The car comes complete with its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, CD full of photos before and during restoration and various receipts. Finding another E-Type of this calibre would be a difficult task, an iconic classic brought up to modern standards to ensure only the positive aspects of classic motoring are retained.
