Combining elegance and high-performance, the E-Type was famously recognized by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever made. This 1962 Jaguar XKE Series I is said to have been previously owned by American television and radio host Dave Garroway and restored by the experts of F40 Motorsports led by Wayne Carini. Finished in silver over a red leather interior, this exquisite example is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.

This Series I is said to have been originally finished in white and has since been refinished in its current shade of silver. A comprehensive restoration was reportedly carried out by Wayne Carini of F40 Motorsports. Details include a black soft top, split chrome bumpers, bright trim, glass headlight covers, clear side marker signals, and a vented bonnet with outside latches and welded louvers. It rides on 15” chrome knockoff wheels dressed in Michelin tires. A body-colored hard top will accompany this sale. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.

The driver is presented with a red leather interior. Textured aluminum can be found along the dashboard and center console, and equipment includes matching carpeted floor mats, a contrasting black padded dashboard, a chrome parking brake handle, and a three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel.

Beneath the bonnet lies a 3.8-liter inline six-cylinder engine featuring triple SU side-draft carburetors. Up to 265 HP is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. Stopping power is provided by 4-wheel discs with inboard-mounted rear brakes. The seller states there are no outstanding maintenance items at this time.

This sale will include a clean title.

    another thing that bears mentioning is how accessible everything is on these cars.
    Nothing is hidden and, with the exception of shimming the valves and seating the stock oil filter canister, is very easy stuff.
    Balancing the carburetors can be time consuming, but once done, they stay balanced.

    I agree that they get a bad rap for reliability.
    Any car of this vintage requires more general attention than impossibly complex newer cars and Jags are no exception.
    I just keep an eye on things and have had five years of trouble free driving since my DIY overhaul of all systems.
    The only niggling thing I have found is that I occasionally had to find disconnects in the Lucas bullet connectors. But having gone through that exercise, that is now a non-issue.
    The drive train, front to back, is bulletproof!
    The brakes are great for a car of this vintage.

    Gorgeous. I had a 99.78pt 65 OTS in opalescent silver grey, navy interior/top. I did not have the ansa bars on the bumpers. Car was stunning as it this. GLWA. Ironically I stored it only about 15 miles from this car. Sold it to get a BB 512i.

    Still have the original fan, rad, expansion tank, shocks, 2 stes of porcelain headder and SS down tubes as I did some upgrades. I had bought the car to drive and I did for 14 years. It still looked like a concour car when I let it go.

    Jags have bad reputations for reliability, totally false. My car was bulletprofe as I imaginge this one is. Just tske care of it tge right was.

    May have to play lotto.

    @WRENCH.56 I would agree.

  • WRENCH.56 (registered bidder) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    The hardtop is an asset!
    I use mine for about half the year and it fully transforms the high speed driving experience.
    I find that these OTCs suffer wind buffeting at high speeds with the top down and top flutter when it’s up. The hardtop solves both those problem very elegantly. Now I know why so many vintage racing E-Types use them!
    IMO, I also think it looks great on the car!

    @ccagnazzi Thanks

  • ccagnazzi (seller) 11 months, 4 weeksago

    @Waterotter Hardtop pictures have been added.
    I confirmed with Mike Roberts @ F40 that paint color is period correct.

    @DLC The driver did not put the emergency brake handle down all the way, he was taking the pictures and never drove the car before.

  • Waterotter (registered bidder) 11 months, 4 weeksago

    Do you know if the paint is historically correct? Opalescent Gunmetal perhaps? Would also like to see a pic of the hardtop. Thx!

  • DLC 11 months, 4 weeksago

    Bid in the amount of $50,000

  • DLC (registered bidder) 11 months, 4 weeksago

    picture of the hardtop?

  • DLC (registered bidder) 11 months, 4 weeksago

    why is the brake light on during the driving video?

  • PCARMARKET 12 monthsago

    @WRENCH.56 thank you, it has been corrected

  • WRENCH.56 (registered bidder) 12 monthsago

    There appears to be a conflict. The ad headline lists it as a 1962 but the listing summary lists it as a 61.
    It is unquestionably not a 61!
    Big difference in value between those two years!
    That said, this is an achingly beautiful example!
    Where I not trying to reduce my stable, I’d make the financial stretch it would take to put this in my garage!
