Known History

With its breathtaking design, the Jaguar E-Type, in its 3.8L coupe version of the first series, is a particularly sought-after automobile. It is all the more rare to find a model delivered new in France, such as the one we are offering, imported by Delecroix and registered on March 27, 1964. As for finding an example mostly kept in original condition and in the same ownership for 35 years, it would be a challenge. Jaguar enthusiast and driver since the 1960's, the current owner discovered this coupe, registered in Seine Saint-Denis since 1979. Seduced by its nice state of preservation, he simply gave it a respray in its original color, opalescent dark green. Today, the car has retained a very sound body, which shows the marks of regular use. The engine has remained the original one, and always maintained, it works satisfactorily, while the electrical circuit will need to be repaired following an intervention which will have to be resumed (the dashboard cap has been refitted temporarily). The leather upholstery is the original one and displays an incomparable patina. In short, this exceptional coupe could either benefit from an extensive general overhaul, while taking care to preserve the marks that it wears so well, or be the subject of a complete restoration starting from a sound and complete base.
