The 1961 Jaguar E Type is perhaps one of the most notable classics to represent the Jaguar marquee. Not only has the E Type become an iconic representation of Jaguar’s glory days in British racing, but it has also become one of the most sought-after British classics in the classic car market for many of the last decades. First launched in 1961, Enzo Ferrari himself called the car “the most beautiful car ever made.” Blending exceptional style with gracious handling and exhilarating speed, the 1961 E Type was the product of more than five years of development and was based off the look and technology of the racing Jaguars of the era. The 1961 Jaguar also turned heads with its monococque construction and independent rear suspension, which was a separate unit in the sub frame. This type of construction would be seen in Jaguars well into the mid 1990s. Those considering buying a 1961 Jaguar E Type will find it is available as both a two-seater Roadster and a two-seater Fixed Head Coupe.
The California classic car dealership professionals at The Beverly Hills Car Club specialize in the sale of classic cars of all makes, models and conditions. Whether you’re looking for a 1961 Jaguar E Type as your primary driver and need a reliable and polished restoration or are looking to take on a restoration project of your own and would be happy with a rolling chassis, their team can assist you. Here are a few Buyer’s Tips to keep in mind as you begin your search. First, because the body of the E Type is partially unitized and the body tub provides much of the structural support for the classic, rust should be a main concern. Each panel on the 1961 Jaguar and its other year models serves a purpose of both function and beauty. For this reason, it is imperative to have the car inspected by a third-party mechanic for rust and any accident or collision repair areas that may be vulnerable. Some of the most notable places where rust is known to be prevalent are under the spare tire, on the floorboard, along the doorsills, and under the rear fenders. In general, however, parts for the E Type are fairly easy to find and make these cars popular for restoration. These are just some of the Buyer’s Tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club can offer when you choose to partner with them in the search for your next classic.
