This numbers matching open headlight, late Series 1—colloquially known as a Series 1.5—Jaguar E-Type Roadster was given to its present owner as a wedding present in early 1969, while living in California.
After a stint in the state, the car was driven to Milwaukee Wisconsin. While in Wisconsin, the car was put into storage, as she did not want her beloved E-Type exposed to the rust belt salt. From there, it went with her to Medical School in Pittsburgh, were it was enjoyed during the summers.
In 1982 the consigner left PA for Oklahoma to do a psychiatry rotation. On the last day of her rotation, the car was hit in the parking lot by a first-year Medical student. As she had excepted a research position with an extremely demanding schedule, the car was once again put in storage the following day in 1983.
It would remain there until 2009 when it was removed and brought to the consigners farm in North Carolina.
It was intended that the car would be restored. Unfortunately, the time to embark on a restoration was hard to find.
Aside from the hit that was taken in the parking lot, the car today is in very original order. The interior and paintwork is all original as is the rare factory hardtop offered with the car. As it was not driven when the weather turned, the body is very solid.
One owner E-Types are hard to come by these days. This represents a great opportunity to acquire one. Surely a great candidate for either a preservation or concours restoration and holding a great deal of potential.
