A Jaguar E-type roadster in its pure, original form is something very special – an automotive icon. This one, supplied new to Jaguar Cars in New York, is factory left-hand drive.
Our car number ‘313 of less than 500 OBL cars ever made during the first five months of production in 1961 The most desirable of the production e-types 313 has benefitted from a full top level 100-point nut and bolt, no expense spared concours restoration by the leading e-type marque expert resulting in a world class, show stopping result. Every single nut, bolt and washer has been painstakingly refinished and replated to ensure 313 is the best of the best.
Early 1961 E-type OBL cars have over 50 unique features not seen on later 61 cars, a pain staking professional restoration has retained all of these unique features and the car is presented with a thorough history of these works with in excess of 200 images detailing these.
313 retains all the important attributes of a very early E-type including: flat footwell floors, bonnet locks secured with a T-key, welded-in bonnet louvres made from separate metal pieces, a double-hinged boot lid and wing baffles spot-welded inside the bonnet, larger half shafts, and a unique rear bulkhead to the monocoque and boot floor.
These and another 50+ features are unique to early OBL cars and all feature on ‘313 as does the original chassis plate and body tag further adding to the cars desirability and provenance.
