A unique 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Convertible. A few years ago this example was overhauled and restored. ‘Lightweight-Race’ specs were installed during the restoration changing not just the car’s external appearance. Amongst the modifications is an enlarged cylinder size from 3.8 to 4.8, modified block water channels, customised pistons and camshaft, MSD ‘Multiple Spark Discharge’ ignition, woven steel cables using only Aeroquip (aviation grade) connectors, alternative oil pump and filters, triple Weber DCOE152 conversion with a handmade aluminium inlet manifold by Viktor Gunther (then the specialist for dealing with expensive cars)., a special exhaust manifold, a synchronised gearbox, a V12 Jaguar brake system and Koni shock absorbers.
The simple fact that they only used the very highest of quality materials available at the time, costing a small fortune, still shows underneath the bonnet! The fine bodywork is well aligned and has good quality paintwork. The sound underbody is naturally rust-free. It has the ultimate in British finishes; British Racing Green over Black. In summary this very quick Gentleman’s’ racer is ready to take on rallies and other historical events.
