Released in 1961, the E-type helped cement Jaguar as one of the most popular automotive exporters to the U.S market. The popularity of the E-type was further enhanced by the release in late 1964 of the Jaguar 4.2 litre engine, built to compete with the larger V8 engines used in US sports cars at the time. Providing more torque, the 4.2 litre engine launch coincided with the release of the much more advanced 4-speed synchro gearbox, hugely improving both the usability and driving experience of the E-Type.
This 4.2 Litre Series 1 FHC was built on 28th August 1964 with chassis number 1E20010 meaning it is the 10th RHD 4.2 FHC ever produced. Originally finished in Opalescent Maroon with matching Maroon interior, the E-Type still retains its original 4.2 engine and 4-speed synchro gearbox meaning it is fully matching numbers.
This E-Type was left outside, off the road since the mid-1970s, and therefore is offered for sale as a full restoration project by E-Type UK to your exact specification. A UK-supplied car that represents a fantastic opportunity to own one of the first 4.2 E-Types ever made.
