The Jaguar E Type, or XKE as it is often called, was designed with aerodynamics in mind. In fact, Malcolm Sayer, a noted aerodynamicist of the time, designed the 1962 Jaguar E Type. While buyers and car enthusiasts praised its exceptional curvature and clean lines for their aesthetics, this beauty also played a role in the E Type’s ability to cheat the wind. With its long slightly curved hood, its small oval air intake, and its glass headlights that were tucked into the fenders with precision, the 1962 E Type quickly became not only one of the most recognizable sports cars, but also one of the most iconic. It is for these reasons that Sports Car International has ranked the XKE in the #1 spot among the “Top Sports Cars of the 1960s.” Whether it is the clean lines and jaw dropping curvature that makes you desire this classic or the thought of owning one of the finest pieces of Jaguar engineering, The Beverly Hills Car Club, a renowned California classic car dealership, can help you find the car of your dreams.
One of the main goals for any classic car buyer is often originality. For those interested in the 1962 Jaguar E Type, particularly those who want a truly original classic, this should be a concern. Produced more than four decades ago, many Jaguar E Types have been converted over the years to use alternate engines, or in some cases, have been cut down from coupes to roadsters. The long-term value of an E Type that has been converted is hard to predict. If originality is important to you, be sure to match the chassis and engine numbers with the car’s records. You can also have the car inspected by a third-party to account for items that may be aftermarket. If you’re looking to purchase a 1962 E Type as an occasional weekend driver or as a restoration project for yourself, these items may not be of concern to you. It all depends on what your goal is for the car. These are just some of the many Buyer’s Tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club has learned over their years of experience in the classic car market.
