Car to be at auction 1/19
www.worldwide-auctioneers.com/auctions/details.cfm

Auction description:
1966 Jaguar E-Type 'Series I' Roadster
Scottsdale Auction
ESTIMATE: $200,000 - $250,000
CHASSIS NO: 1E12126
Lot Number 28

• 2013 JCNA National Champion and 2015 JCNA Regional Champion
• Concours-quality, complete restoration by Jeff's Resurrections during 2012-2013
• Factory-original color combination; accompanied by JDHT Certificate
• Matching numbers chassis, engine, and body; Welsh Enterprises five-speed gearbox
• Includes full concours-requirement toolkit, books and documents
• Highly desirable and collectible late ‘Series I’ 4.2-litre example
• Single ownership since 1980
• Outstanding example of a true sports car legend

Verified by its corresponding Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this multiple award-winning ‘Series I’ 1966 Jaguar E-Type Roadster bears Chassis Number 1E12126 and retains its factory-specified colors of Opalescent Silver Blue and dark blue. Completed December 2, 1965 then dispatched to the United States, it was purchased new by James H. Summers of Houston, Texas. Subsequently, 1E12126 passed through two more owners prior to being purchased by the consignor in 1980, remaining sound and retaining matching numbers, essentially as it had left Jaguar’s Coventry factory, other than one repaint. Soon placed into long-term storage, it was entrusted in 2012 to Jeff Snyder at Jeff’s Resurrections, well known marque specialists in Taylor, Texas, for concours-quality restoration to JCNA National-level standards. The restoration, including some 2,500 hours of labor alone, was extensively photo-documented from the Jaguar’s total disassembly in April 2012 to completion in June 2013, with all parts inventoried and every aspect and system of the vehicle thoroughly addressed in the process. Retaining the original chassis, body, 4.2-litre engine (cylinder block and head), and rear end, the E-Type was discreetly upgraded during restoration with a special five-speed gearbox supplied by the Jaguar specialists at Welsh Enterprises, Inc., endowing the Jaguar with superior performance and driving ease.

Immediately following completion, the E-Type stormed the concours circuit, winning a succession of awards including the Jaguar Clubs North America (JCNA) National Championship in 2013 and the 2015 JCNA South Central Regional Championship (Division C5), garnering five perfect 100-point scores and three Best of Show awards in the process. Other awards include Best in Class at the 2014 Keels and Wheels Concours d’Elegance, the Award of Distinction at the Concours d’Elegance at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, Akron, Ohio (September 2014), and Best in Class at the prestigious Concours d’Elegance of Texas (April 2015). Earning Best in Class at the Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance (November 2014) was particularly satisfying, with this E-Type so judged in the highly competitive “Legendary E-Type Roadsters” class. A complete listing of awards accompanies the sale of this outstanding ‘Series I’ E-Type, as does a written summary and photo-documentation of the restoration, the aforementioned JDHT Certificate listing original data, and the complete toolkit, books, and documents required for concours entry. A wonderful find for committed marque enthusiasts, this beautifully restored 1966 Jaguar E-Type ‘Series I’ Roadster is a proven concours winner at the highest levels, presenting a compelling opportunity to acquire, appreciate, and enjoy one of the finest.

Car now offered at:

www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/jaguar/e-type/2356718.html

Seller's description:

Location: ISSAQUAH, Washington, 98027

Transmission: Manual

Condition: Mint

Exterior: Opalescent Silver Blue

Interior: Dark Blue Leather

Award Winning Example – National Champion, Multiple Best Of Show Awards

Complete Documentation File, Including Jaguar Heritage Certificate

Exceptional 100-point Restoration By Noted Marque Expert

Commonly Heralded As One Of “The Most Beautiful Cars In The World”

Includes Tool Roll, Jack, Hammer, Car Cover, Numerous Awards and Trophies

This E-Type Roadster has repeatedly stopped people in their tracks when they see it in our showroom since arrival here. Achingly beautiful with the original color combination and quality of the restoration apparent immediately upon inspection.

According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate that is present with the car, 1E12126 left the factory in Opalescent Silver Blue over a Dark Blue interior. With a build date of December 2, 1965, the car was dispatched to the USA distributor - Jaguar Cars in New York on December 16th.

The car was sold to the first owner, a Mr. Summers of Houston, TX in February of 1966 via Bob Morin Motors. Mr. Summers enjoyed the car briefly for 18 months, before selling it to a Mr. Garcia, also in the Houston area, in late 1967

Mr. Garcia owned the car for 12 years and used it regularly for the first seven years, and then it appears to have moved to static storage for the final five years of his caretaking period. Sold again in 1979 to a Mr. Smith for a short stint, and then purchased by a Mr. Archincal in December 1980.

Mr. Archinal became a long term caretaker of 1E12126, holding on to the car for 38 years. Used sparingly over the first three decades of ownership, the extensive restoration has handled under his watchful eye in 2012-2013, and the car has seen very limited road mileage since. Of interesting note from all the above owners, the car resided in Texas from 1966 until 2019 when it came to Washington State.

The restoration was carried out by Jeff Snyder at Jeff's Resurrections of Taylor, TX. Mr. Snyder is no stranger to top level restorations, having a long list of national awards and accolades for Jaguars turned out by his shop. The restoration began with Mr. Archinal dropping the car off, for a full assessment upon delivery. Then it was completely disassembled. Every nut, bolt, wire, trim, etc. was carefully assessed for restoration or thoughtful replacement with the goal to build a 100-point car that could compete on the national level in judged concours events. The restoration consumed 2,500+ man hours and invoices nearing $250K.

That 100-point goal was handily achieved in 2013 with the car receiving top honor as the “2013 National Champion – E-Type Series 1, Jaguar Club of North America.” The car went on to be judged at a dozen more events from 2013 to 2015, where it routinely scored 100.00 points, while also receiving several “Best of Show” awards along the way.

Driving is enhanced with the addition of a Welsh 5-speed transmission, and the car is offered with a fully restored tool kit, jack, wheel hammer, extensive documentation file, Heritage Certificate, and numerous boxes of trophies, awards, and judging sheets.

This exceptional Series 1 4.2L Jaguar E-Type Roadster is ready for any concours event, tour, or rally around the world, without excuse. A must have for any serious Jaguar collector that desires only the best example of an E-Type in their collection.

Price: $260,000 negotiable

Car to be at auction 1/21

www.goodingco.com/vehicle/1966-jaguar-e-type-series-i-42-litre-roadster/

2021 | SCOTTSDALE EDITION

1966 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2-Litre Roadster

Chassis 1E12126

Engine 7E7014-9

The 2013 JCNA Class C5 National Concours Champion

Exquisitely Restored by the Noted Experts at Jeff’s Resurrections

Retains Original Engine per Accompanying JDHT Certificate

Multiple 100-Point Performances as Documented in Extensive History File

Among the Finest Restored E-Type Roadsters Extant

According to its JDHT Certificate, the incredible 1966 E-Type Series I Roadster offered here was built on December 2, 1965 and originally finished in its current shade of Opalescent Silver Blue over dark blue leather. A manufacturer’s warranty pamphlet on file shows the Jaguar was purchased new through Bob Moring Motors by James H. Summers of Houston, Texas. A copy of a Texas title issued in 1968 shows the car in the ownership of Pete Garcia of Houston, and a subsequent title documents the sale of the Jaguar to Thomas Smith, also of Houston, in 1979. The following year Bruce Archinal of The Woodlands, Texas purchased the E-Type and retained it for 38 years.

During Mr. Archinal’s nearly four decades of stewardship, the Jaguar was cared for and serviced, as documented by numerous receipts on file, but it was beyond his abilities to keep the Jaguar running as it should. In late 2011, Mr. Archinal commissioned the renowned marque experts at Jeff’s Resurrections in Taylor, Texas to restore his faithful steed. Sparing no expense or effort, the E-Type was completely disassembled and brought back to better-than-new condition. Careful attention was paid to correct finishes and detailing, and sensible upgrades were made such as modernized engine internals and the addition of a Welsh five-speed gearbox. Carefully chronicled with invoices and spreadsheets on file, the total cost of this incredible restoration was in excess of $238,000.

Finished in early 2013, this now world-class Jaguar E-Type made its debut in a Jaguar Club of North America (JCNA) concours competition. Participating in the competitive class C5, the car was judged a perfect 100 points no fewer than four times that year, in addition to receiving near-perfect scores of 99.94 and 99.98. The considerable efforts of Archinal and his team resulted in the 2013 JCNA National Championship for class C5. Additional accolades in the following years included class wins at the Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance and Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance and Best of Show at multiple JCNA competitions through 2015.

Maintained by Jeff’s Resurrections until its sale to the consignor in 2018, this lovely E-Type remains in concours condition, a testament to the quality of its original restoration and astute care since. Accompanied at auction by a fastidiously compiled history file dating to new, show placard, tool kit, manuals, and numerous trophies and ancillaries, this Jaguar remains a top-level example of one of the most desirable automobiles in the world. Rarely are we treated with the opportunity to purchase a collector car of such inherent quality, ideal specification, and with such a well-rounded resume of accomplishments.
