Car to be at auction 8/19
CHASSIS NO: 1E10641
• Meticulous and comprehensive restoration by David Ferguson of Images Autobody

• Stunning color combination
Offered here is a 1965 Jaguar Roadster that’s finished in Golden Sand. This roadster has received a full restoration that has not only made it an excellent car but has also turned it into an ultra-performance track car as literally nothing has been overlooked in making this one of the best performing E-Types on the road. Everything from components to weight has been carefully calculated in its build and its beauty is exceeded only by its performance. Starting with the engine, its twin-cam six has been fully rebuilt using Weber carburetors, an external oil cooler, and a custom free flow exhaust system. A high flow CNC made oil pump ensures adequate pressure at all times. Weight was also not overlooked in this engine’s build with a lightweight starter motor and an aluminum radiator. The attention to craftsmanship and detail is found in the custom-made overflow tank that makes the engine bay look like a work of art. Power reaches the rear wheels through a custom-built five-speed gearbox that is all internally modified to give the appearance of a stock Jaguar gearbox. An upgraded heavy-duty driveshaft and upgraded U-joints transfer all that power to a rear differential with a set of 307 gears for high-speed driving. Enhanced stopping power is provided by lightweight aluminum brakes up front and stainless-steel brakes at the rear, all of which are oversized. Enhancing all this power is a body that features doors, deck lid, and bonnet made from lightweight aluminum. So intense was the concern for weight in this Jaguar that it even uses lightweight competition Perspex headlamp covers, which are lighter than glass and are far more durable. This E-Type also has its convertible top and a removable aluminum hard top that’s finished in the matching body paint color. The entire body structure was also reinforced with multiple gussets at all critical stress points in order to ensure stability while cornering at any speed. The interior is finished in tan and features a custom removable steering wheel and correct toggle switches on the dash.
The Jaguar E-Type was always well-known for its Grand Touring comfort, but this build takes the entire GT concept to another level. Handling in this build is also greatly improved with electronic power steering and long-range touring is enhanced with a 25-gallon aluminum fuel tank. It’s also fitted with air-conditioning for driving comfort. Most impressive is that this Jaguar rides on Aluminum D-Type racing rims with triple knuckle spinner hubs that give it an aggressive stance. This is also an all-matching numbers car that also carries its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.
