Jaguar E Type S1 3.8 1964 (B) Red
On its release in 1961, Enzo Ferrari called the 'E' Type "The most beautiful car ever made" and he was right!
The Series 1 was introduced initially for export only in March 1961 and the domestic market launch came four months later in July 1961.
This fabulous Series 1 3.8 Roadster has just arrived at our showrooms after a restoration to near Concours Condition!
According to the Jaguar 'Heritage' Certificate this car was built in Coventry on the 10th January 1964 and was sent to Jaguar dealer M & A Kooheji in Bahrein, Persian Gulf and supplied to its first owner a Mr R E Legenger in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. He took the car back with him to the USA and sold it a Mr John W Cripe of Syracuse, Indiana in March 1968. It remained in Mr Cripe's ownership until he sadly passed away 1998, but it remained in his Estate until being sold by his wife to a Mr George W Skyrm of British-Italian-German Auto Parts in Goshen, Indiana on 12th August 2001. The mileage when sold was 35,500 and was declared as genuine from new on all documentation!
The car was stored for 2 years and then sold to a company here in the UK and imported in January 2005.
