Hello Everybody !

1961 Jaguar E type Series1 OTS, OTS means Open Two Seater .

I had this car for 14 years and it never ceases to amaze me how beautiful this automobile is !

This is a very early FLAT Floor E-type according to it's Jaguar Heritage Certificate (see photo)

It was manufactured in Sept. of 1961 the first year

Engine Description:

Very well maintained 3.8 Straight Six producing 265 bhp

3 Original S U Carburetors
Original Moss Gear box (non syncro 1st) Extremely Rugged
New Plugs and Ignition wires Distributor Cap and Rotor
Replaced Pertronix Ignition with original ignition, Cap and Rotor (works much better)Replaced Radiator with OEM radiator (looks much cooler ! But big dollars)
Flushed out and re-lined fuel tank.New in tank Fuel pump as per original - works great !Just tuned up and with complete oil change and filter

Interior Description:

Leather Original "Cathedral' seatsVinyl top and Tonneau Cover
Original AM Radio (working)All Gauges work cleaned and new gaskets
Updated Dash lighting (Led)
The paint on the car is fair still looks good. and there is no rust to speak of.
This car, while being a very good driver did win some "Best in Driver's Class"
awards around the tri- state area. It appeared as a guest at the Carlisle European
Car Show. It was also featured in the book "Me and My E-type" by GT JOEY.
It also appeared on the Velocity Television car show "Legends of Designs"

BUT this car is meant to be driven , It is this is not a trailer Queen,
but it will always be a real beauty !

This is an honest assessment of this car, it's an excellent driver and stillhas the patina of years of owners taking good care of it. I think that it is priced honestly and fairly if you compare the market
