This E-type Roadster is a matching numbers example that was purchased in the U.K. by a local New York collector in 2013. In that same year he decided to have JD Classics Jaguar Specialists perform not only a thorough nut-and-bolt concours restoration, but also add JDs truly bespoke upgrades for performance, comfort and safety, all of which they well known for. This E-type has been restored to exacting standards and far better than when originally manufactured.

The original matching-numbers engine was completely rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted and enlarged to 4.7 Liter specification. New high-performance camshafts, valve springs, JD pistons, lightweight flywheel and balanced crank shaft as well as an aluminum radiator with an electric cooling fan were fitted for improved performance and efficiency. Furthermore, a modern fuel injection system developed by JD Classics was fitted. Converted from right to left hand drive during restoration, a new electric power steering column was fitted as well as a new upgraded peddle assembly. A fabricated stainless exhaust was handmade and fitted. For better drivability, a five-speed transmission was supplied and installed. The brake system was upgraded to AP brakes and suspension handling kit was fitted to ensure superb road holding/handling. Finally, stainless steel competition wire wheels mounted with Dunlop performance tires. The restored interior received a new stereo system and modern sport seats. The restoration took over two years and cost a little over $377,000.00 at the time.

This bespoke E-type offers exceptional performance, but with its many modern amenities and upgrades also exceptional reliability along with its outstanding looks. Extremely expenses to duplicate, this E-type is superb in every way and ready for immediate use.
