The E-type Jaguar was for the first time revealed at the Geneva Motor show on the 15th of March 1961 and was widely and quickly considered as the most beautiful sports car in the world by journalists and pairs.
Sir William Lyons head of Jaguar Motor Company and aerodynamics specialist Malcolm Sayer achieved once again a smash hit, 13 years after the success of the XK 120. The E-type featured a 3.8-liter in-line six cylinder engine with 269 hp. and reached a speed of 240 km/h which was a sensation in 1961.
This E-Type was sold new by Jaguars Cars in New-York on the 26th of July 1961 as mentioned by its Jaguar Heritage certificate and delivered to its first owner in Ohio. This car offers all the specifics that identify a very early E-Type: convertible flat floors, opening of the bonnet by external hooks, hood louvers, a black plastic zipper for opening the truck and various other details.
The car was completely restored in the early 1990’s by classic Jaguar in Houston and re-painted in its original color (Opalescent gunmetal). Over 20 years, the owner of the car was Jack Bryan – head of Bryan Design Works – the creator of the five-speed gearbox of the Jaguar DW5, with which the car is equipped. The car has its original engine and the chassis number plate on its front crossmember.
