Eagle 33 - The most desirable Jaguar E-Type on the market today.

With interest continuing to grow for early production chassis numbers, matching numbers engines, original colours and, in the UK particularly, original right-hand drive the car presented here is quite definitely an opportunity not to be missed.
  • Already, just by its chassis number of 850143, you can tell that two of these important boxes are already ticked. The ’85’ prefix denotes this as an original right hand drive roadster and the ‘0143’ signifies that this was only the 143rd such example built, as confirmed by the Jaguar Heritage certificate which lists the build date as the 18th September 1961.

    The Heritage certificate also confirms that the engine is indeed the matching numbers original unit, and that the colours match the factory build sheet too.

    And what colours they are. Opalescent Silver Grey paint over Red trim is perhaps the most sought after and requested colour scheme for any restoration today, and it is not hard to see why.

    Adding to this already impressive list of collector must-haves, this E-Type has recently undergone a full Eagle restoration. Over the course of 4,000 hours our expert restoration team has rebuilt this E-Type to the very highest standards available, incorporating a number of sympathetic and yet highly desirable upgrades along the way.

  • Specified to our GT specification, which you can see in full below, this E-Type performs as well as it looks and is perfect for touring – something that isn’t always the case with these early examples, which are usually only restored to be trailered to shows.

    Many of the upgrades have been subtly incorporated, such as the black painted aluminium radiator and cloth wrapped silicone hoses, to maintain a more original and correct appearance.

    Bestowed with its signature Eagle number upon completion in 2013, Eagle E-Type No.33 joined an exclusive club of E-Types considered to be the best in the world. Alongside its original factory numbers and its Eagle number, this E-Type also comes with the appropriate registration number of 143 XKE. 

    Early production, Flat Floors, matching numbers & colours, original UK right-hand drive and restored by Eagle – you won’t find another!
