Description for Jaguar E-Type 1964



Continually Voted by the Automotive World as

“The Most Beautiful Production Car Ever Produced”


On offer: a matching numbers, show-condition, 1964 SR I Jaguar E-Type with 43K original miles in desirable red/red color combination.


The Jaguar E-Type, known to Americans as the XKE, was introduced to the automotive world in 1961after years of speculation. The brainchild of Williams Lyons and a passionate team of advisors and designers, it was aptly named E-Type, as it was a clear descendent from the accomplished C and D-Types that had been dominating racetracks. Its other name, XKE, was evidence that it also possessed the positive qualities of Jaguar’s XK series.

Jaguar took what it learned on the track and applied it to the E-Type. The monocoque passenger compartment, tube framed engine bay and tilting hood clearly came from the D-Type. The XKE exhibited 265bhp at 5,500rmp, a 3,781cc double overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, three carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front and rear suspension, four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes with rear discs fitted next to the differential to reduce unsprung weight, and importantly, it has a fully independent suspension for all four wheels.

In addition to being an engineering stroke of brilliance, the E-Type was one of the most attractive, sensuous and evocative designs ever to grace an automobile chassis-as quoted by one automotive critic “sex on wheels”. As witnessed in numerous surveys throughout the years, and seen in the most recent survey done by “The Daily Telegraph”, the E-type consistently comes out on top as the most beautiful car ever built. The E-Type’s design is an artful blend of race car and road car, not since the introduction of the XK 120 at the London show of 1948 had any sports car produced such a stir or so much favorable comment.

It was also one of the fastest production cars on the road in 1961 at close to 160 miles per hour and held that record for many years to come.It’s no wonder that the E-Type Jaguar has become one of the best Classic Car Investments today.

The car has been owned and pampered by the current owner for the past 30 years. He had the car restored several years ago, and only put a handful of miles on the car since the restoration; hence theLOW MILES. Thebody and paintrestoration included the engine bay, firewall, bonnet underside, trunk, and the entire exterior. The entire body was disassembled; this level of restoration can be seen in one of the photos.

When the car was reassembled, the final restoration included manyNEWcomponents including, but not limited to, complete interior, convertible top, boot cover, trunk kit, windshield, tires, stainless steel exhaust system, and miscellaneous electrical and mechanicalcomponents within the engine compartment. Many of the items that were not replaced new were restored.

Just recently the car has undergone a complete refresh including, but not limited to, the ignition system, carburetor adjustment, new tires, new fluids, complete hose kit, new fluid reservoir sensors, new plugs and plug wires, complete brake system rebuilt, new chrome, new rubber seals throughout, gas tank drained and cleaned, paint buffed out, and a general checkup involving the overall electricals and mechanicals. It’sREADY TO HIT THE ROAD.
