Estimates:
$200,000 - $250,000

Whether referred to as an E-Type or XKE, Jaguar’s sleek sports car was most assuredly the sexiest car of the 1960s. It followed the Jaguar formula – sensational looks, sensational performance, and a sensational price – which had been introduced so successfully with the XK 120 – and made Jaguar young and exciting once again. Replacing the voluptuousness of the former car was the sleekness of the new one. What remained, however, was the undeniable sex appeal of the Jaguar formula.

This lovely first-series E-Type was sold new through Jaguar Cars New York on 25 June 1962 to H. Caldwell, as per its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, which accompanies the car. It was finished in Cream with a black interior and matching hood. Today it is rendered in stunning Black over crimson leather with matching red carpets underlaid with insulated Koolmat for comfortable cruising. A period-correct Blaupunkt AM-FM radio is fitted along with a black boot, soft top, and factory black hardtop. Recent chrome wire wheels replete with classic redline tires add to the dashing appearance. Fitted red leather luggage is included for weekend getaways.

Used sparingly and restored by a former four-time JCNA National First Place award winner, this Jaguar was prepared with the intention of competing with the best. A meticulous rotisserie restoration ensued with every part either rebuilt or restored. The drivetrain was rebuilt along with the brakes, suspension, electricals, gauges, relays, motors, and a sophisticated but undetectable generator/alternator. Details like factory stickers for the air cleaner, brake booster, and other accessories were attended to, and the owner’s manual, grease gun, jack with storage bag, and knock-off hammer are included along with an extensive file of receipts and documentation.

Whether cruising or showing, this stunning Jaguar is sure to make an impression.
