This is a gorgeous concours quality 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Coupe that has enjoyed three known prior owners and would be equally fantastic on tours as it is on the show field. This is an all-numbers matching, black and black example from new with gorgeous chrome wire wheels. With an investment in mechanical restoration over the past three years of $47,000 and multiple awards from the JCNA and AACA, this Coupe is in showroom condition and ready to enjoy. The Coupes present owner professionally and thoughtfully installed a Clayton Classics air conditioning system in the original radio housing, and it works great! This Coupe was built on May 7th, 1965 and was acquired by its original owner, Charles B Pendelton of Augusta, GA on June 25th, 1965. Mr. Pendelton was a professional photographer and understood beauty and colors. He custom ordered this Coupe as you see it today, in brilliant and gorgeous black livery with black leather interior. By October 3rd, 1997 the Coupe was acquired by Mark Lovello of Taylors, SC with 59,846 original miles. Mr. Lovello commenced a restoration and showed the Coupe successfully at many concours events. By March 2nd, 2007, after further restoration by marque specialists the Coupe was sold to Richard Sacks of Deerfield, IL. Mr. Sacks continued to improve it and successfully campaigned it in several JCNA and AACA concours events from 2011 through 2015, earning as high as 999.80 points (out of 1,000) and an AACA National First Place win in 2014. The black livery today is simply stunning. It is polished brilliantly and contrasted with perfect chrome and stainless steel trim. The panel gaps are all perfect and the panels are straight and true. The chrome wire wheels with proper knock offs are as-new in all respects. We love the classic look of the covered headlight covers. The black leather interior is also as-new and the leather is soft and supple as one would expect. Everything within the interior looks as-new and in fantastic condition. All of the instrumentation work s as they should. We noticed light scratching on the drivers door tinting from normal use. As mentioned, the air conditioning is beautifully installed where the stereo was normally housed. (The parts removed to fit the air conditioning are included with the car if it was desired to return it to original.) The air flow is excellent, working brilliantly here in Phoenix. The engine compartment and engine detailing are in show condition today. The venerable Jaguar 4.2 liter straight six cylinder engine produces 265 hp and has been comprehensively rebuilt with only break-in miles added since (several photos of the engine restoration are included in the photo gallery). This investment also included anything that needed tending to, such as the clutch, brakes, etc. Receipts totaling $47,000 over the last three years covering the air conditioning, engine rebuild and related improvements are included. This Coupe is documented with its Jaguar Heritage Certificate and a comprehensive file with 15 years worth of receipts and 25 years worth of historical documentation. Also included is its tool roll, jack, manuals and original radio and other parts. The NADA Value for this Coupe is $230,500.
