1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Coupe

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this exquisite 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Coupe. Finished in Dark Blue over Biscuit hides, this example was restored in the early 2000s by noted Jaguar specialist Classic Showcase. It subsequently won first-place awards at two judged JCNA events prior to our client's acquisition in 2008 at the Bonham's Quail Lodge auction in Carmel. He sold it at RM Monterey in 2014, but was so fond of the car (and regretful of the sale) that he bought it back when it was offered at RM Amelia in 2016. The concours-quality restoration has stood the test of time, as this XKE has been very well cared for and still presents beautifully inside and out.

We, and this car's owner, are of the opinion that there is no such thing as a car that's "too nice to drive" -- and that a late Series I E-Type deserves to be driven and enjoyed, smudges be damned. The 4.2 liter with a triple carb setup (1965 to 1967 only) is without a doubt the best, and this example is particularly well-sorted mechanically. In an era when so many of these cars are put away in collections and brought out from time to time to admire, it's refreshing to find one like this that runs and drives just as good as it looks.

A Series I E-Type Coupe is one of the most beautiful cars ever made -- but it's a mechanical masterpiece well, and one that offers a thrilling experience for its driver. For more information about this 1965 Jaguar E-Type for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
