Supplied by Eagle to the last owner an incredible 19 years ago! Comprehensively maintained, upgraded and improved by us since. 

  • Bought new from Stratstone London in 1967 by a writer for the cult British TV show Dr. Who, and the creator of the infamous Daleks, this S1 4.2 Roadster was surely the perfect transport for a successful young man about town. 

    Even if his impressive credentials wouldn’t get Terry Nation noticed, cruising the Capital in this Opalescent Silver Grey Jaguar E-Type certainly would.

    In 1971 the car passed to a second owner, as verified by the original and rare-to-find green logbook, and an original purchase invoice shows that the bill was a lofty £1,375. Obviously a treasured possession to this second owner, his custodianship lasted for 25 years and his devotion to the E-Type is borne out through the countless maintenance invoices. Quite nicely, a good number of MOT certificates survive on file and trace the original mileage from new.

    We acquired the car from a fleeting third owner and supplied it to the current owner in 1998, having fully bare-metal repainted the car in the original Opalescent Silver Grey. Once down to a bare tub we were able to observe just how well preserved this then-60,000 mile car was, rectify the amazingly small amount of corrosion and take the opportunity to protect the metal from future corrosion.

  • From that point the car has been back to us every year for servicing, without fail, and every invoice is on file to show the Eagle maintenance and gradual upgrading along the way. The result is a beautifully presented driver’s car, running close to our full GT spec, with a full engine rebuild performed just 8,000 miles ago when circa £45,000 was invested in Eagle rebuild and upgrade works.

    As you can see from the pictures the body and paint condition is still incredibly sharp, and is certainly no worse for its wear. Astonishingly the engine bay still wears the original factory paint as applied when new, something we felt duty-bound to preserve during our bare-metal repaint, but is by no means tired.

    The interior has developed a beautiful lived-in feel and would great left ‘as is’, with the original black leather seats being the most comfortable you’ll find and showing only mild creasing with no tears or cracks.

    We have just serviced the car and it is ready to be driven away.
