1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster
1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster \n\nRegistration: BTH 140C \n\nChassis Number: 1E20113 \n\nEngine Number: 7E1841/9 \n\nOdometer reading: 105,500 miles \n\nRe-bodied as a roadster in 1989 \n\nPresents in excellent condition \n\nThe Jaguar E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975 and its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960's motoring. There have been few better summaries of the E-Type's manifest virtues than the forgoing, penned by the inimitable John Bolster for Autosport shortly after the car's debut. Conceived and developed as an open sportscar, the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in Coupé form. The car caused a sensation - spontaneous applause breaking out at the unveiling - with its instantly classic lines and a 140mph-plus top speed. The design owed much to that of the racing D-Type, a monocoque tub forming the main structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. \n\nOriginally registered on 12th March 1965, this Jaguar was originally a factory built coupé. However when undergoing a total restoration in 1989, the vendor purchased a roadster bodyshell from Martin Robey and re-bodied the car as a convertible. A new bonnet, doors and frames were also fitted. At the same time, a number of improvements were made to the car, namely a brake upgrade and the fitment of a five speed gearbox and a stainless steel exhaust. The engine has also been rebuilt with larger inlet valves, new pistons and balanced accordingly. A high torque starter motor and Kenlowe cooling fan have also been fitted. Finished in Carmen Red with black interior, this Jaguar is in excellent condition throughout and the vendor describes the car as driving with no known faults. Sitting proudly on a set of Dunlop SP tyres, this Jaguar E-Type is supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 21st March 2019 together with a history file dating back to 1989 when the car was converted.

1936 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Open Tourer 'The Balloon Car' Historics at Brooklands
1961 Jaguar Mk. II Saloon 2.4 litre
Synonymous with the swinging ‘60’s and the hit TV series, Inspector Morse, the Jaguar Mk.II saloon has been used as a vehicle to transport everyone from dignitaries and politicians to bank robbers and the criminal select. Desirable due to being a well-balanced saloon car with space for four adults and a good size boot, it also boasted engine options including the mighty Jaguar 3.8 litre power unit; small wonder it became popular as a getaway vehicle. When released, traditional Jaguar buyers had no need to feel alienated by the new offering from Coventry as the interior was up to their usual standards with leather and walnut being the order of the day. With 112bhp available, the 2.4 was not overly burdened with pace so, importantly, coupled to a manual gearbox with overdrive it would be the more frugal of the range but give the driver the ability to utilise the full range of the 2.4 engine. Presented in the splendid colour combination of Westminster Blue with deep red trim, this lovely Mk.II has been owned by our vendor and Jaguar Enthusiast member for some 19 years having purchased the car in 1999 from a Mr Smith who had owned the car for the previous decade. After deciding to sympathetically restore the car, between 1999 and 2002 this Mk.II received a full retrim and interior restoration together with a complete brake overhaul before the mechanicals were overhauled a year later with the engine and gearbox removed by Motafix of Bushey, Herts. The exact date the body work was restored is unknown but it presents very well today with the chrome work and paint in keeping with an elegant but older restoration. Within the history file numerous receipts and MoT certificates can be found alongside a current MoT test certificate valid until January 2019. Smartly presented and performing well, this very attractively priced Mk.II Saloon - with the crucial manual gearbox and optional overdrive is a must for the budding Jaguar enthusiast or those looking for a great looking and practical classic car. *Please note the cherished registration number will be retained by the vendor and new age related number will be issued by the DVLA Historics at Brooklands
