'Concours ready' Jaguar E-Type could roll to $95,000 in classic car sale

An undisputed classic car icon of 1960s motoring will be among a number of automotive highlights which are going under the hammer in Amelia Island, Florida, on March 9.

This 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Coupe will carry a $75,000-95,000 presale estimate and role onto the auction block with no reserve, next weekend.

According to its lot notes, this Jaguar E-Type has been comprehensively restored. Various "sensible" mechanical upgrades have also been added.

The car boasts its original colour scheme, and a matching-numbers 3,782 CC DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder engine with three SU carburetors.

As you can see from the above photographs, this car has been restored to the highest standards and is intended to be enjoyed on tours, rallies and Jaguar Clubs of North America (JCNA) Concours.

Accompanying paperwork includes a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) certificate, tools if you want to get under its bonnet, and full restoration records.
