The immediate impact and lasting influence of Jaguar’s brilliant E-Type (‘XKE’ in North America) simply cannot be overstated. Universally admired from its March 1961 Geneva launch by legions of enthusiasts and reputedly capable of inspiring even the iconoclastic Enzo Ferrari to comment on its beauty, the new Jaguar was very much a racing car for the road, sharing its DNA with the Le Mans-conquering C- and D-Types of the 1950s. Developed from the E1A development “mule” (‘XKE-101’) and the E2A sports-racer campaigned by Team Cunningham at Le Mans in 1960, the new Jaguar delivered breathtaking performance and remains the first series-production sports car to break the 150-mph threshold.

The E-Type’s projectile-like styling remains a design benchmark with an E-Type long kept on permanent display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. While built along three distinct iterations throughout its run spanning 1961-1974, the ‘Series I’ cars are particularly coveted today for their unadulterated performance, aircraft-styled cockpit, and pure bodylines with minimalistic bumpers and sleek Perspex-covered headlamps. Main updates during ‘Series I’ production delivered greater interior comfort and from 1964, a larger 4.2-litre engine and desirable full-synchromesh gearbox.

According to its corresponding Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate on file (No. 11206), this 1965 Jaguar E-Type Fixed-Head Coupe (FHC) was built on December 7, 1964, dispatched on December 15, 1964 to the United States, and sold new by Walnut Creek Motors to Michael C. Dursey of Berkeley, California. It is further understood that the black interior upholstery was specially-ordered. Mr. Dursey retained the sleek Jaguar until 1973, when it was sold in Washington, D.C. to second owner Bill Denning, who eventually had the car restored over a five-year timeframe, with the work completed in 2010. The rare factory-specified livery of Dark Opalescent Green paint over black upholstery was retained and at the time of completion, just an approximate 49,000 miles had been traveled. Workmanship and attention to detail remain impressive, with the Jaguar’s restoration very well-preserved indeed. Confirming the quality of restoration, this outstanding E-Type was the First Place Winner at the 2016 AACA National Fall Meet held in New Bern, North Carolina, and it was also a First-Place winner at the Carolina Jaguar Club, Inc. Concours d’Elegance.

Offered from only the third owner from new, this 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Litre ‘Series I’ Fixed Head Coupe is handsomely presented, continues to benefit from its restoration, and includes the aforementioned JDHT Certificate, jack and roadside tools, and tool roll. Within the document pouch are found original papers including the Warranty Booklet, upon which are handwritten the original serial numbers for the Chassis, Engine, Gearbox, and Body. As offered, it delivers a significant opportunity for astute collectors to own, show, and above all – enjoy one of the greatest postwar sports cars ever designed and produced.
