In 1963 Jaguar start building the famous lightweight E-type with chassis numbers S850659 till S850669.

Jaguar used lightweight aluminium panels, additional cooling ducts and Perspex windows (aside from the windscreen).
Tuned engines provided considerably more power than the standard ones, thanks to triple Weber carburettors or Lucas mechanical fuel injection systems. They proved quite effective in shorter races. With just 12 cars and two spare bodies made, they soon became legendary, ultra-desirable machines.

  In 1964 Jaguar made one semi lightweight with chassis number S850817.

This CAR

This E-type left the factory as a normal road car with chassis no 850792. Which is just in between the Lightweights and the semi lightweight of production year 1964. The car was first registered in the UK with licence number  J3414.
The car must have been raced in the original RHD version in the UK. The car still has a flat-floor on the left side from that period. It was to keep the exhaust silencer as high as possible to the body.
   When it was sold to Germany it was converted to LHD. It is not complicated to reverse it back to RHD.

The E-type was used by the previous 2 German owners in international Rallies. It has taken part in the historic rally of Monte Carlo in the nineties. The old HTP papers with stamps and remarks of the FIA scrutineering are with the car. There are many documents and papers that come with the car. Invoices, old and new FIA HTP papers, recent results, German road registration papers and more.

The Car is offered in 100% race-ready condition with nothing further to spend while it also has a German road registration and comes with 2019 issued FIA HTP papers.

Conform to the semi-lightweight requirement the car has a steel monocoques with aluminium hardtop, doors and boot lid Only the bonnet is still Steel.  The full FIA approved Roll cage is made recent in the Netherlands and aproved by the Knaf. Documents are coming with the car.

Inside, the cabin is trimmed in period racing style, with a FIA seat in date, FIA 6-point harnesses and exposed fuses and Fia mean circuit breaker Lexan windows are fitted. The complete range of modifications, inside, outside, and underneath, is very extensive but it is all detailed in with pictures of the restoration.

The widened transmission tunnel  which can house the homologated 5 speed ZF gearbox. Which is not in the car. It allows to take out the gearbox separate from the engine.

There was a damage at the rear Left light which is not finished complete. There are a few stone chips, including a spot on the bonnet that has been touched up, but aside from that, it’s all in good condition. There’s no hint of corrosion, either on the steel or the aluminium, and no electrolytic reaction where the two metals meet. The paint finish is consistent throughout.

Among the more distinctive features, some ofwhich are Lightweight-specific, are vents on the roof and boot lid, leather bonnet straps, a bonnet-mounted air deflector.

Denis Welsh supplied a spare set of wheels.  They are now with Dunlop 600/650M15 tyres

Wide rear fenders are as homologated and can house the widest 650M or 700L Dunlop tyres.

A big Aston fuel filler cap in the rear bonnet is for filling the 120 litre aluminium tank, build to Fia standards, in the trunk.

The underneath of the car has been finished in body colour rather than undersealed, and is almost as immaculate as what’s on top.  

2 sets of Tyres/wheels come with the car;   One set with Avon CR6-ZZ  and one set Dunlop 600/650M15.

The suspension and brakes were uprated recent to Fia HTP as well many new suspension parts like springs and Koni big body double adjustable shock absorbers and up-rated torsion bars.

In the car is now  the spare engine. Which is a more standard than the race engine for this car. The race engine with more power is made with many parts of Rob Beere. The camshafts are from Denis Welsh.

2 extra Gearboxes come with the car.
