Don’t miss this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless classic Jaguar E-type! This is a NO RESERVE PRICE AUCTION.

Three generations of the Jaguar E-type (Jaguar XK-E) were built between 1961 and 1974. The E-type meant a revolution in the design, performance and handling of sports cars. The Jaguar E-type holds first place on the list of best sports cars of the 1960s.

The series 1 has a 3.8L 6-in-line engine that came from the XK150S. All E-types had independent suspension and reinforced disc brakes on all four wheels, two unusual features for that time. The 3.8L versions had bucket seats with leather upholstery and a centrally placed aluminium instrument panel. The first models were easy to recognize by their 'Flat Floor'. These first E-types are very rarely offered for sale.

This Jaguar is in very neat and original condition (the interior, engine and transmission are all original). The vehicle starts immediately, shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears, idles nicely at 900 rpm and brakes properly. This Jaguar features beautiful spoke rims, nice chrome and Old English White paint. The interior is in neat condition and has original Jaguar leather (Maroon).

The Jaguar comes with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate which shows the car has matching numbers. It also shows the paint, the interior and even the soft top are correct. Originally delivered in Canada (December 1961, the first year of E-type production), the car then found its way to a Jaguar enthusiast in Norway in the early 90s who maintained the car with a lot of love. This maintenance history is available.

These Jaguar E-type Series 1 Flat Floor convertibles are starting to increase in value. So don't wait too long and grab this opportunity to become the owner of this wonderful classic which many regard as the most beautiful car ever made.
