E-Type 4.2 Liter series 1 Coupe By Vicarage

Golden Sand with Cinnamon leather interior, Cinnamon carpeting, 4.2 liter straight six-cylinder engine, 5-speed transmission, Chrome wire knock-off wheels, Fully restored, 9,500 miles since restoration, Restored and uprated by Vicarage.

Founded in 1982, The Vicarage Company in Wolverhampton, England has been restoring and rebuilding Jaguars to uprated and upgraded standards for many years. The Series I E-Type, being one of the most exotic and beautiful cars created, is a prime candidate for the Vicarage treatment. This particular Series 4.2 Coupe was built for the owner of Vicarage.

With the Vicarage upgrades including the custom tuned SU carburetors, the inline 6 cylinder produces over 280bhp, utilizing 4.2 Series III pistons, XJ connecting rods and a late XJ6 ignition system making this E-Type an absolute rocket. It is mated to its 5-speed gearbox based on a Borg-Warner T5. Further upgrades include uprated suspension (torsion bars and springs), more powerful disc brakes, wider chrome wire knock-off wheels and a low-restriction twin exhaust. Currently this E-Type is fitted with a traditional E-Type wood steering wheel, but the Nardi leather wrapped steering wheel as fitted by Vicarage years ago is included.

A Vicarage E-Type inhabits an even more rarefied atmosphere, with a combination of looks, build quality and performance that is even more sensational today than when it first awed the motoring world back in 1961. A recent road test attests to the car performing flawlessly in every way and is indeed ready for immediate use and enjoyment. It is quite simply a very tasteful build with excitingly manageable upgrades for a vintage rally or standard, fast road use.
