1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Litre Series 1 FHC

Manufactured on 17th March 1965, this 4.2 Litre Series 1 fixed head coupe was a UK specification, right hand drive example finished in Opalescent Silver Blue coachwork with Grey interior. Dispatched by Jaguar distributor Henlys of Manchester on 26th March 1965 with UK registration ‘CNC 420C.’

Acquired by the previous owner in April 2013 in unrestored but running and driving condition, he commissioned a comprehensive concours level restoration. The car was totally dismantled and stripped down to a bare shell and bare metalled. Great attention was made particularly to panel fit and shut lines. 

The finished shell was painted in the original colour of Opalescent Silver Blue to an extremely high standard and all brightwork was re-chromed. The interior was completely re-trimmed in the correct Grey leather to concours standards. The engine and gearbox were stripped and completely rebuilt. All components were either restored or renewed throughout the vehicle during the restoration.  A full stainless exhaust system was fitted including the manifolds, an electronic ignition, competition chrome wire wheels and DAB Bluetooth radio.

A fully numbers matching and rare example of an original home market 4.2 Litre Series 1 FHC freshly restored to exacting standards. Still registered with its original UK number and having remained in the UK all of its life, the restoration is fully documented with photo’s and invoices and has a clear ownership chain from new. Please note that the car can be completed with JD Classics upgrades to the new owner's exact specifications. Please contact us for further info. SOLD
