1961 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES I ROADSTER

Supplied in September 1961, via Henlys, London to Associated Newspapers Ltd, presumably to a company Director rather than a journalist in a hurry. This is one of the very first ‘internal bonnet lock’ cars, as production of the E-Type really began to build momentum.

Finished in Carmen Red with a Tan interior, this is a very well presented example with restoration invoices going back to 2000, following its return home from South Africa.

Forming part of an important private collection since 2008, at which point it received numerous upgrades. These included a 5-speed gearbox, Koni shock absorbers, Coopercraft brakes, Avon tyres and electronic ignition. It has just been fully serviced by a specialist, and with the benefit of the upgrades, it drives exceptionally well.

Less than 10 chassis numbers away from an Outside Bonnet Lock, and only a third of the price.

Pendine specialise in the sale of historic cars for road and track. Whilst focusing specifically on the immediate post-war period through to the 1970s, our experience ranges from Edwardian racers through to the supercars of the 1990s. The company is named after Pendine sands, the 7 mile stretch of beach on the south coast of Wales that was the setting for Britain claiming and retaining the land speed record in the 1920s. The record runs started with Malcom Campbell in 1924, Parry Thomas with ‘Babs’ in 1926 and finally Campbell again in the first Bluebird in 1927. In the spirit of those pioneer racers, our mission at Pendine is to become the leaders in our field, breathing fresh life into the historic car market as we go.
