This beautiful Jaguar Series 1 3. 8 Roadster is according to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate an original UK RHD Matching Numbers car – Chassis No: 850745, Engine No: RA 2916-9. The car was built in Coventry on 29th July 1963 and supplied new by Jaguar dealer Coombs of Guildford and first registered on 28th August 1963 and maintains its original rather nice registration of 1580 PF.

Finished in Opalescent Gunmetal Metallic with Red Leather trim, Red carpets, Black mohair Soft Top it has a 3781cc 265bhp Straight Six Engine with 4 Speed Manual Gearbox. It has Borrani Wire Wheels fitted with 185vr15 Pirelli Cinturato tyres.

A complete body restoration was commissioned in 1998/ 9 and there are a few photos in the history file for this. The Engine was rebuilt by Jaguar specialist VSE in Wales in 1998 when the speedometer was showing 67, 000 miles. The car was later sold in 2006 through Coys Auction house. The current owner has enjoyed the car since 2020. It is now showing 79, 104 miles on the speedometer, so only 12, 000 since the restoration.

The car looks stunning car in this colour combination and mechanically runs well and is certainly one of the nicest Series 1 E Types we have had the pleasure to sell. There are few minor cosmetic blemishes in the paintwork, but nothing significant and perhaps to be expected after over 20 years.

As an original Series 1 3. 8 RHD car, this is a fairly rare car, according to the DVLA records there are only 241 still registered.

This E-Type has an original Motorola 818 Jaguar OEM solid chrome radio externally restored to show quality with Jaguar legend lit dial, modernised internally to Bluetooth complete with upgraded speakers costing over £2, 300 finishes the original look and feel to the interior.

The car comes with an original complete leather tool roll, an original jack, workshop manual, original operating manual, V5C registration document, Green log book (VE. 60), history file and photos and Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificates, CTEK charger and Super Soft Stretch Indoor car cover.

This is a reluctant sale by the current owner who has enjoyed the thrill of driving this iconic British sportscar around the country lanes of Cornwall.
