CHASSIS NO. 1E 14657
•Original left-hand drive Series 1 roadster
•Restored to the highest standards
•Matching numbers example
•Registered in The Netherlands
Manufactured on 26 January 1967,chassis number '1E 14657”' represents the Jaguar E-Type in – arguably – its ideal specification: a 'Series 1' roadster with the covered headlamps, benefiting from the more refined and powerful 4.2-litre engine and the improved all-synchromesh gearbox. In addition, this car's left-hand drive makes it ideal for European touring. As a Series 1 model, '14657' incorporates many features not found in later cars, including covered headlamps, toggle switches, and over-bumper rear lights, all hallmarks of the E-Type in its earliest and purest form. The original chassis plates confirming matching numbers are still in place.
Its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirms that this is indeed a matching-numbers example that was ordered via Jaguar Cars New York and left the factory on 23 February 1967
Benefiting from a complete 'last nut and bolt' restoration, the car has now covered some shakedown miles and effectively performs to better-than-factory standard. All original components have been rebuilt to the highest standards.
Handsomely finished in Gunmetal metallic with black leather trim and matching mohair hood, the car has a Dutch Title and can therefore easily be reregistered in any EU state without any taxes to be paid. Worthy of the closest inspection, this stunning E-Type roadster is finished to the highest standard and ready to provide its fortunate next owner with years of reliable and relaxed high-performance motoring.
