Chassis # 1E10022 was produced in August of 1964, finished as a Carmen Red over Beige E-Type roadster with no special options, and not destined for competition. While it shared much of its DNA with Jaguar's track ready alternative, it was still a standard E-Type. Exact early history is not fully known other than by the 1980's it stayed with its owner until 1995 when it was acquired by its current owner and the inspired custodian who would turn it into what it is today. In 1995, it was a fairly straight, shiny and complete example with numbers matching. It ran and drove and could have easily been serviced up as a driver and/or could have been an ideal restoration candidate. However, as the owner continued to read more, furthering his ambition as a Jaguar Enthusiast, he kept coming back to the 12 Light-Weight cars with intrigue.
In 1998 the research on the build was concluded though far from over and the decision was made to transform this plain E-Type roadster into something extraordinary. The owner correctly disassembled the entirety of the car while cataloging his efforts. A receipt in April of 1999 from Jaguar Expert, Steve Helms of Jaguar Restorations shows the car was completely media blasted, stripped to a shell and metal work started. In April of 2000, an order was placed with Dunford Limited in the UK for All-Aluminum panels to be beaten out by master craftsman. The order included two doors, a hardtop, complete bonnet, boot lid, rear quarters and 2GXO style boot/hardtop vents. Additionally, Dunlop racing wheels, hubs, and a variety of other odds and ends all specific to Light-Weight E-Types was placed on order, all to the tune of nearly $20,000. An additional $36,000 was spent between 2003-2005 with a local Aluminum and Allard specialist further shaping and contouring the metal work for paint prep while on a rotisserie. Shortly after completion the owner entrusted the services of Jaguar Monocoque experts Lindley Motors to complete final paint prep, paint, and finishing for re-assembly. In September of 2005 the car was finally in show quality paint, and ready for reassembly by Steve Helms.
Recreating an engine to the specification of the original which was completed in period with blue-prints by original craftsman is no easy task. Short of casting a new aluminum Block and a wide angle head, or finding one for that matter, the motor was simply built to the highest standards possible. In short, like the rest of the car; there were no shortcuts taken. The goal was to produce an identical experience all culminating with the sound and visceral thrill of the original. An XJ6 block (# 8L48468-9) was sourced as it is nearly identical to the original block though it has bigger oil galleys and various updates over the original E-Type block, thus making it more reliable when handling more power. The engine was built by popular E-Type race engine builders: Hyde Villa Machine Shop of Reading, Pennsylvania. Some details of the build include Venolia +.020 Pistons, Balanced, blue printed, ported, and Polished. New Rods, ISKY Race Cams, aluminum fly wheel, 3 Weber DCOE 45 152 Carburetors, AP Clutch, Stainless Steel Headers and exhaust etc... The list is intensive with only the best utilized for a balance of performance and reliability while retaining the ability to safely run on pump gas, but performing even better on race fuel. An exact list, spec sheet and invoice totaling over $10,000 are available for review.
It should be noted however that the original block and head is included in the sale. The bigger point to be made is that if the original block and head were to be re-installed, it would provide a basis for FIA eligibility in European vintage racing: a very important fact to consider. The car would currently be welcomed to most vintage track events here in North America, along with concours events, tours and rallies. Another positive attribute to an already stunning car.
With the Engine finished, body completed and in paint, re-assembly and post restoration sorting was the only thing left. The entirety of the suspension and braking system was gone through, from start to finish. Wilwood Brakes were added, Spax shocks installed with upgraded suspension bushings, stainless steel brake lines throughout and adjustable torsion bar reaction plates. Again, no expense spared and only the best to accurately perform even better than the originals in some instances. As the car started to look like a car once more, it came down to minute items of accuracy on the exterior of the car that were going to define the project as a success. Items such as the LeMans filler cap, the 2GXO vents, Dunlop wheels, aluminum paneling, correct roll-bar, hardtop, bonnet vents etc... the list is extensive with many little items such as the boot stay, the side latches, the air intakes etc... It was all completed to the highest standards possible, to provide the real look, feel and overall experience that 2GXO might provide.
The build was completed in 2006; minor sorting has been carried out since completion to make sure the car is dialed in. Today, the car is turnkey and event ready with no needs other than a home. Cosmetically, the car shows very well and is easily still in show quality condition. The paintwork is consistent throughout with a very nice luster; the gaps are impressive considering the amount of time and energy spent on perfecting them with aluminum. The panel fitment is great and everything accompanying them such as rubber components and even the ubiquitous aluminum trim strips where the bumpers used to be is all excellent with no issues noted. While aluminum is soft and the car is driven there is one or two minute blemishes to be disclosed including a few chips that were touched up, but nothing warranting any sort of refinishing. There is one faint dent in the driver's side front of the car, something that would most likely and easily PDR (paint less dent removal). A sawmall scratch on the cowl near the windshield on the driver's side, and a small less than ¼ inch crack in the shape of an x on the drivers ¼ . Otherwise very much in order, straight down the sides and appearing as superb in every other regard.
Upon entering the interior one can easily note the lightness of the aluminum doors. The interior is very Spartan, as it should be. Aluminum seats wrapped in leather as modeled after the original. An exposed center tunnel, and minimal carpeting with interior comforts that would usually be found on an E-Type. 5-Point harnesses, lexan rear window and side windows give hint to the safety features that were also considered in building an incredibly fast car. The dash is nicely finished, the gauges have been completely rebuilt by Nisonger, including a 6,500RPM tachometer specific to a lightweight, and are in proper working order.
The engine bay shows incredibly well, clean, tidy, and basically as new with nothing out of place. While not a dry-sump Alloy block, wide angle head car, it still is very well built with subtle features of an original light-weight, such as the cabin ducting from an original, the plug wire stay on the valve cover etc... Other improvements can also be noted such as the aluminum radiator and Coolcats Fan. The trunk compartment is of the same consistency, only the wooden slats remain with no spare or any sort of trim work, with the theory obviously applied that "less is more". The underside is basically the same consistency as that of the engine bay and boot. It is clean and straight with no issues noted and 100% solid.
Turning the key brings systems online and a hum of the fuel pump. Hitting the starter button makes the 10:1 compression quite obvious but with a little play of the throttle the car fires right up. The engine sounds very strong, with very quick throttle response. No smoking, knocking or any issues are present and the engine has already been well broken in with post rebuild valve adjustments being completed. The clutch works well, and grabs hard. The transmission shifts easily as a full syncro box from 1965. The car goes where it is steered with ease and the brakes work better the harder you push, very effective and a huge upgrade over the stock brakes. Power is put to the road via Dunlop Racing tires which are very temperature sensitive and have a period correct look to them as well. The experience of driving this car is not for the faint of heart. It is easily track ready and should be taken seriously for those who don't have competition driving experience behind them; very fast, very fun.
The reality for most connoisseurs and enthusiasts is that even if one of the 12 original Light-Weight E-Types were to be available on the open market, it would be out of reach. Even the 6 remaining examples currently being built by Jaguar today will be well into the 7-figure range. This is an opportunity for any collector with a racing background or actively involved with vintage racing or events to acquire a semi-lightweight E-Type that has been accurately recreated to the standard of 2GXO. The car embodies the ideals any collector or enthusiast seeks in a thoroughly and properly completed car. One that was restored to a high standard, effort made to reproduce unique aspects of the original, and overall a passion that comes through from the owner's vision and manifestation of the ultimate E-type.

Car to be at auction 1/18
1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Lightweight Replica
From a Private Collection
Chassis 1E10022 began life as a standard E-Type roadster, completed in August 1964 with Carmen Red paint and a Beige interior. In 1995, the Jaguar was purchased from a long-term owner by Joseph Sedlack, an attorney in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who intended to restore the car. Enamored with the Lightweight model, Mr. Sedlack decided to build a re-creation of registration no. 2GXO, the 11th of the 12 E-Type Lightweights.
The build commenced in 1999, with marque expert Steve Helms of Jaguar Restorations stripping and preparing the exterior. New aluminum panels for the bonnet, doors, rear-vented hardtop, bootlid, and rear-quarter panels were ordered from Dunford in England. Mr. Sedlack engaged local metalworkspecialist Barry Parker to shape the coachwork on a rotisserie, as confirmed by numerous photos taken during the two-year process. Lindley Restorations, of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, then finished the new coachwork in Opalescent Silver, and final assembly began during 2005.
Mechanically, a new XJ6-based engine was sourced and rebuilt to highperformance specifications by Hyde Villa Machine Shop in Reading, Pennsylvania, including Venolia pistons, Isky racing cams, an aluminum flywheel, and Weber carburetors. The engine build included full balancing and blueprinting, with porting and polishing, while the chassis was equipped with Wilwood brakes, Spax shock absorbers, upgraded suspension components, and stainless steel brake lines. The interior was authentically re-trimmed in racing style, including leather-wrapped aluminum seats, five-point harnesses, and gauges rebuilt by Nisonger Instruments (including a 6,500 rpm tachometer specific to the Lightweight model).
Completed in 2006, the meticulously executed tribute was featured in a 2011 exhibit at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum entitled "Best of Britain." Offering the aesthetic details and performance of the rare E-Type Lightweight at a fraction of the investment, this exacting re-creation would make a splendid acquisition for any Jaguar enthusiast.

Completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar Factory during August of 1964 as a left-hand drive E-Type Roadster, chassis number 1E10022 was originally finished in cream with dark blue interior. Believed to have been delivered new to the US market, the Jaguar came into long-term ownership in the 1980s until it was sold in 1995 to a Jaguar enthusiast who appreciated how straight and solid the E-Type was. Retaining its matching numbers engine, the car was at this time red, and its owner drove it for about three years, during which time he embarked on a personal quest to fastidiously research and document as many details as possible regarding the E-Type Lightweights. By 1998, he had reached the ultimate decision point and decided to embark on a build to replicate a Lightweight E-Type as faithfully as possible, in the livery of the 11th Lightweight E-Type originally built, 2 GXO.
He began by carefully disassembling the entire car, photographing and cataloging his efforts along the way. In 1999, Jaguar expert Steve Helms media blasted the entire shell and the metal work began. In April 2000, an order was placed with Dunford Limited, UK for aluminum panels to be fabricated by their master craftsmen. The order included two doors, a hardtop, a complete bonnet, boot lid, rear quarter panels, and boot/hardtop vents. At this time Dunlop racing wheels, hubs and a variety of other specific Lightweight parts and pieces were purchased totaling nearly $20,000. Between 2003-2005, an additional $36,000.00 was spent with a local aluminum fabrication specialist to shape and contour the panels, fit them to the monocoque, and prep the car for paint. Jaguar monocoque experts Lindley Motors then completed the final paint prep, paint, and finishing for re-assembly. In September 2005, the body and frame was completed to show quality finish, ready for Steve Helms to re-assemble.
The original engine was set aside and left undisturbed (and is included with the car), and a newer 4.2 liter XJ6 engine procured specifically because of its larger oil galleys and other updates, making it well suited to being built up to produce more power when compared to the original E-Type engine. E-Type race engine specialists Hyde Villa Machine Shop in Reading, PA were commissioned to build the engine. A few details of the extensive rebuild include a balancing and blue printing, porting and polishing, Venolia +.020 pistons, new rods, Isky race cams, aluminum fly wheel, 3 Weber DCOE 45 152 carburetors, AP clutch, stainless-steel headers and exhaust.
The suspension and braking systems were tended to with the same attention to detail. Willwood brakes and Spax shocks were installed as well as upgraded suspension bushings, and stainless-steel brake lines and adjustable torsion bar reaction plates. A full synchro 1965 gearbox unit was fitted replacing the stock Moss unit. Further sorting continued to the exterior of the car installing a LeMans filler cap, finishing the extractor vents, correct roll bar, and other supporting details. The build was completed in 2006, with minor sorting and maintenance performed during the years since the car's completion.
Today, the car presents as a faithful Lightweight E-Type recreation with both impressive presence and excellent finishes throughout. The interior of the car is as carefully thought out and detailed as the exterior. Throughout, the workmanship, fit, and finish are exemplary in the chassis and components, reflecting a cohesive and exceptional build. A host of spares is included with the car along with the original engine, records supporting the fabrication, parts listing, and services performed on the car. This no expense spared recreation is a testament to the dedication and enthusiasm of its builders and is a stunning tribute to the leg
