*Offered from the estate of the late John Hodgson (Alpine Eagle)
*Restored in the 1990s
*Considerable recent refurbishment
*Arguably the most desirable of all E-Type variants


The Jaguar E-type offered here was purchased by the late John Hodgson - proprietor of the renowned classic car restoration company, Alpine Eagle - at a UK auction in 2011. It had been purchased by the immediately preceding owner from Henry Pearman's celebrated Eagle E-Types in 1993. It is understood that a full restoration was carried out in the 1990s, including a bare metal repaint; interior re-trim; and engine and gearbox overhauls. Recent works include a service and the fitting of a new water pump; radiator; cooling fan; alternator belt; ITB performance air filter; and a stainless steel exhaust system including manifolds. In addition, the running gear has been refreshed: the front brakes; front dampers; and front suspension bushes/joints all being overhauled, and the suspension repainted, while the wheels have been refurbished and shod with Pirelli Cinturato tyres. Handsomely finished in Opalescent Silver Blue with black leather interior, the E-Type is rated as either good or very good in almost every respect. The car comes with a history file containing the V5C document; maintenance records; expired MoTs; and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Combining the stylistic purity of the original with the superior 4.2-litre engine, the 'Series 1 4.2' is considered by many to be the most desirable E-Type of them all.
