1966 JAGUAR E TYPE S1 4.2 ROADSTER
We are proud to offer this great car with a very special background.
All of you E Type enthusiasts will remember the late Chris Harvey, Fleet Street journalist and author of many fantastic motoring books of various makes, but predominantly Jaguar. Chris' most famous book was 'End of an Era' written not long after the E Type ceased production. Chris owned a few E Types and had a real passion for them and this particular car was his all-time favourite, owning it until his sudden death back in the mid-90s.
This car is an original UK RHD Roadster finished in red with black leather interior and black mohair hood. The original engine blew up on a fast run just outside Paris in the 80s, which is when Chris decided to fit his genuine E Type lightened and balanced 3.8 litre engine of which the car retains to this day. Further upgrades include wider competition chrome wire wheels and upgraded front brakes.
Featured in 'End of an Era' this is one of the more famous E Types from back in the 70s, 80s and early-90s as Chris used to attend a lot of events with the car.
The car had a full restoration around 15 years ago and still presents superbly. This is a great car with a superb background and must be the most competitively priced UK RHD Roadster on the market.
