1966 Jaguar E Type Series 1 2+2


Specifications


Description

 

One can point to a hundred things that have made the E-Type Jaguar a success from the moment it appeared: a list price that originally undercut competition from Aston Martin and Ferrari by half; performance years ahead of its time; looks that landed it in museums; and a legend that endures to the present day.

But many other cars can also offer this sort of metaphorical timelessness. The Jaguar, however, also offers a concrete, mechanical appeal that has made it not just wonderful to see, but also relevant on the road today.

The Series 1 E-Type was manufactured from 1961 to 1968 in a few different forms.

As the first line-up of the icon car, the Series 1 E-Types are often considered the most valuable and coveted among classic car aficionados. When the Series 1 E-Type was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961, potential buyers were looking at a price tag of just over GBP2,000 - adjusting for inflation this is just shy of GBP44,000 in today's money. Nowadays, you'll have to pay even more than this to get your hands on a rusted shell of an E-Type.

While prices can vary dramatically depending on the condition of a Series 1 E-Type, typical prices range from the NZD90K region for a rusted “fixer upper” to NZD230K+ for a pristine FHC model. Series 1 Roadsters come in at a more expensive level, with a car requiring restoration work coming in anywhere between NZD100K - NZD130K. A high end, excellent condition example of a Series 1 Roadster can cost anywhere up to NZD240K.

Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered, if sold in New Zealand.
