Rare 1961 Jaguar E-Type could sell for £135,000

Prices for E-Type Jaguars are continuing to appreciate in the collectible automobiles markets. And examples currently up for sale include this 1961 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Series 1 Roadster.

Eightieth of just 91 right hand drive examples produced in early July, 1961, and one of the first to be exported, this Series 1 3.8 Roadster returned to the UK from Cyprus in 1996 and has been fully restored.

Restoration works included a complete professional rebuild of the entire car, faithful to the original factory specifications. The works were carried out over 12 years by its dedicated London owner, himself a professional trim expert.

Worthy of a place at the Pebble Beach Concours, this magnificent Jaguar boasts its original - and very rare - colour combination of Old English white and matching cream leather upholstery with a tan hood.

It is for sale in Warwickshire, UK, priced £135,000.

What's more, with the E-Type approaching its 50th birthday next year, the values of these exceptional historic rolling works of art are likely to escalate even further.
