A desirable early flat floor E-Type roadster presented in beautiful colors and with a well-detailed older restoration. Ready for enthusiastic open-air motoring in your favorite driving events.
This 1962 Open Two-Seat roadster is a desirable early 3.8-liter car, presented in excellent condition and with a sharp livery. It is an attractive and nicely sorted example, with a well-maintained and detailed older restoration. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage certificate shows this is a US specification car, delivered to its first owner through BMC Distributors in Portland, Oregon in the spring of 1962. This E-Types is among the last of the early “flat floor” cars before a recessed footwell was added. Originally cream over red, the current black over red livery suits it very well, indeed. The restoration has mellowed lightly, and it remains quite attractive, with glossy paintwork and thoughtful details including genuine Lucas headlamps, chrome knock-off wire wheels, and period-style Avon radial tires. The owners enjoyed this car on the road since the restoration, resulting in some minor touchups and imperfections. Despite these minimal blemishes, the car is very attractive overall and will no doubt turn heads out on the open road.
