Very nice original driving car. Lots of original details. Engine and gearbox in great condition. Matching numbers.
1964 Jaguar E-type 3.8 series 1 FHC in its factory original colour combination of Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior trim.
Matching numbers, EU imported, comes with a Heritage Certificate.
This Jaguar E-type was produced on the 1st of January 1964 and dispatched on the 17th of January 1964 through Jaguar Cars New York, USA to its first owner A. J. Wiele, Elleritto, California, USA.
This great car in the beautiful colour combination of Opalescent Dark Green exterior with Suede Green interior trim has just been imported from California where it spent all of its life in the hands of only three owners. Until recently it has been driving around and received regular service. In the past years it was fitted with an aluminium radiator and new battery.
This car is full of original details like the body number marked in crayon on the inside of the rear door, additional California J-64 identification plate, brake vacuum reservoir Trico Resercav text and California Black Plate still in place.
Now fitted with an American after-market 4-pipe rear silencer system, the car is supplied with an original twin rear silencer system.
The paint of the car can be described in different ways. Some would say that the paint is dull with some marks of use, while others would say it has loads of patina. The bodywork is solid and rust free with only a small parking dent at the left rear bumper.
The odometer reads 33.198 miles. The engine runs great with a very good oil pressure and the gearbox shifts perfectly. With a set of new tires and a small service this car could be used again for everyday driving.
