  • Outstanding Documented History

A remarkable S1 Roadster with the rare and perfect balance of preservation and restoration.

  • Acquired directly from the family who have cherished it for some 38 years, we are thoroughly excited to be able to offer this E-Type for sale for the first time in four decades.

    Built in the summer of ‘65 this S1Roadster was delivered new to the owner of a London-based construction company, who kept the car for just one year before selling it on to one of his directors. This second owner would go on to keep the Jaguar for some 12 years; briefly selling it in 1975, buying it back again and finally saying farewell in 1978.

    It was at this time, with just 26,329 miles on the clock, the E-Type was sold to the family who’ve cherished it ever since. In 2000, now in the care of the second generation of the family, the E-Type was brought to us at Eagle for a full bare metal body restoration and respray in the original Carmen Red colour.

  • We also performed a full rebuild of the rear axle & suspension cage, converted the cylinder head to unleaded specification and tailored a brand new mohair hood.

    Alongside the body work and mechanical recommission, the opportunity was taken to sympathetically upgrade the specification with a handpicked selection of options for greater reliability and usability. 

    Little over 2,000 miles have been covered since our works 16 years ago and, as you’d expect, the car presents fabulously with that hallowed combination of originality and usability.
