Behold: the 1961 Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head coupe – an extremely early production development series 1 demonstration car for one of Jaguar’s greatest GTs.

Painted opalescent dark green with assigned chassis number 860010, this car had unique design features that would later make it into full production including lowered driver’s side floor, redesigned seats and pedal position plus numerous mechanical improvements.

Fully restored to Concours level with its original engine, it’s arguably one of the finest E-Types on the market and goes to auction at the end of this month.

    Lovely motor.
    One of the greatest of all time.
    Even though the handling was a bit suspect over a ton.

        When I drove it there was no girth.
        The father of a lady I was boulevardiering lent it to me one night to squire his daughter to a Home Counties assignation.
        A long time after midnight and on a very straight Surrey country road we put the foot down to see what the old girl could do.
        Went like the clappers.
        The car did too.
        Wahaay !
