A splendidly preserved FIA GT-specification 1961 E-type, with remarkable period racing history is being offered for sale through Fiskens.

The car’s period competition history includes appearances at the 1965, ’66, ’67, and ’68 Sebring 12 Hours, and 1967, ’68, and ’69 Daytona 24 Hours. Originally delivered new to Florida as a flat-floor coupé, chassis 885096 was rebuilt in period to FIA GT specification by long-term owner and privateer racer Richard Robson.

Following its final period competition appearance, at Daytona in 1969, the car was preserved and sealed in a garage for 37 years...

Since its founding in 2004, the E-type Club has gone from strength to strength and we now have members in over 50 countries...

What makes the E-type Club different is that we focus 100% on E-types. 

​There are several excellent Jaguar clubs but they have to cover a vast range of cars and interests from pre-war through to the current range. Naturally, they cannot concentrate on just one model...​

Last month I was recounting our recent problems with fuel and misfiring with 9600 HP. With Simon having found the source of the misfiring, we set off on the Geneva Tour with a reasonable amount of confidence. It was, though, to be a challenging week or so. For a start, it was horrendously hot during this period and the heat was not enjoyed by the cars.

We broke down, or to use the old-fashioned parlance ‘failed to proceed’, several times. The first three or four times, the engine restarted after about 40 minutes. The superb Tour mechanic, Stephen Hall (he became a good friend – we saw so much of each other!), repositioned the coil because we initially thought it was getting too hot. Or maybe it was...

As the Essex region Rep for the E-type Club, during the pandemic I met with JD Classics while most staff were on furlough. Back in August 2021 I arranged for a visit to the premises with the members of the Essex region and a few friends. Sadly, the weather precluded me from bringing my car, but I arranged to drop it in for a bit of a health check a day or two later. My initial thoughts that a valve guide or two may need replacing proved correct and we agreed to deal with that, along with a few other minor maintenance issues. I made the decision to go to JD Classics primarily due to the standard of their work, rather than cost.

As often seems to be the way with these things, what started off as a relatively straightforward repair job ended up being something far more involved. Work commenced, and as the engine came apart it was clear...

Why buy an E-type?

 

Apart from the emotional aspects, there are a number of hard-headed reasons to buy an E-type. ​

 

Reliability – there is no point in owning a classic car unless you can use and enjoy it, and do so with confidence that it is not going to let you down. All the E-type’s mechanical components were used in the higher volume saloon...

XKE Data

 

XKEDATA.com is a project to help people find information about a particular car or series of cars by serial number.

This site welcomes participation from anyone interested in these cars. We aren't experts, but there is also no exclusivity to the data hosted here. You don't have to be a member to list a car.

If a site user sees a car with such-and-such car number in a classified ad that's what will be entered. It's all that's known at that point. But over time, hopefully more information will be added, corrections will be made, and at the end of the day we'll know a bit more about a particular car than we would otherwise.

Well, Silverstone Classic vroomed past at great speed, and in much better weather than last year! I hope all of you who attended over the weekend had a good time. We must give a very big thank you to Don Grant, our XK Club Representative for Beds, Bucks and Herts, who coordinated member attendance for both Clubs. There were a few challenges along the way, which Don handled with aplomb. You did a fantastic job, Don, very much appreciated indeed.

On the events front we have the first of what we hope will become a regular fixture in the Club calendar, the CMC Technical Seminar. Four sessions of specialist advice and guidance (some of it hands-on) – what could be a better way to spend an October Saturday?
