Description One of the most beautiful cars in the world, the jaguar E-type Series. One was a perfect road going extension and development of the company's famous and successful D-type racing car. Designed and produced for 1961, it was an instant global sensation and today is considered an iconic classic with it's seductive styling, 265hp/150mph performance and Jaguar pedigree. This spectacular 3.8L Series One Fixed Head Coupe offered here was commissioned by Kurt Tanner Restorations and has just completed a total, rotisserie subframe-off, nut and bolt restoration to the highest concours standards by E-type experts "More Than Just Cars" of Upland, CA. Finished in it's original color scheme of Opalescent Silver Blue with Navy Blue leather trim, this exciting Jaguar has been completed with no expense spared. Thoughtful and careful upgrades include the full synchromesh 4.2L transmission, 4.2 style servo assisted brake setup and improved cooling system. This combines the 3.8L high revving engine to the best gearbox and brakes and creates an exceptionally good driving car. Details of the restoration include new show quality, bare metal body and paintwork, new chrome, rubber, correct interior trim kit, wiring harness, totally rebuilt and balanced engine with clutch and ancillaries, rebuilt gearbox, complete IRS unit with final drive differential, steering, suspension, brakes, fuel system, cooling system, stainless wire wheels with tires, etc. Properly and expensively restored to the highest standards, this desirable Jaguar XKE Series One Fixed Head Coupe is a rare offering in this superb condition and is quite possibly one of the finest examples to come to market recently.
