A superbly restored Series 1 4.2 Coupe, with Hollywood history.

  • As this E-Type came down the Browns Lane production line in the almost certainly bleak winter of 1966, its delivery address of “Jay Ward Productions Inc, Hollywood, California” must have sounded hugely intriguing and exotic to those who read its build sheet.

    An exclusive Californian residency helped preserve this Coupe over time, with the desirable climate making the car a perfect basis for a top-class restoration.

    Finished in a universally appreciated shade of Gunmetal and reupholstered in complementing Grey, the image has been revitalised to level well beyond how it would have been when new. Fifty years after it would blast through the Californian hills and cruise the fashionable Los Angeles boulevards, this E-Type is still not short of admirers.

  • Supplied by Eagle to the previous owner, this coupe has been the recipient of a number of highly desirable upgrades including electronic ignition, wider wire wheels, an aluminium radiator and uprated brakes. Please see the full specification below.

    Our restoration team also performed an expert conversion to right-hand drive, although the car can very easily be converted back if desired.

    As it stands this superb E-Type is excellently equipped for thoroughly enjoyable motoring, yet is equally ideal as a candidate for further bespoke upgrading tailored to your preferences.
