According to the accompanying Heritage certificate, this E-Type was manufactured on November 19, 1962 and first sold in New York as a Left-Hand Drive Roadster in Black over Beige leather. Graham Hill’s celebrated the E-Type’s racing debut in April of 1961. The elevation of the GT class to Manufacturers’ Championship status for 1963 prompted Jaguar to develop a few very special lightweight cars to challenge the likes of Ferrari. In the 1990s, this Series I E-Type was sent back to England to replicate the racy lightweight cars. All conversion work was performed by Zealia Engineering in Suffolk, UK including the conversion of Left to Right Hand Drive for racing and street use in England. The 3.8 liter belt-driven dry sump engne was built by renowned Jaguar racing expert, Rob Beere. The engine was built with 9.1 pistons, wide blade rods, a larger water pump, a Zealia custom radiator, and 45 DCOE triple Weber carburetors. Zealia engineering reports the engine prodcues 250bhp at the wheels fed through a Getrag 5-speed and 3.31 final drive ratio rear end with a limited slip. The E-Type sits on original pattern lightweight magnesium wheels with 7 inch front wheels and 7.5 inch rears with three-ear knockoffs. The standard E-Type suspension was retained, with higher spring rates and front and rear Koni shocks. Front brakes are Willwood 4 pot Superlite 11s with alloy calipers and Girling XJ for the rear brakes. The build utilized the Series I base, floor and bulkhead with a lightweight works-type gearbox tunnel to accommodate the Getrag. All remaining panels, including rear fenders and tail section, doors, boot lid, hardtop, and engine cover are composite in nature, with Lightweight dimensions to include flared rear arches. Other build items include a 2 inch FIA spec roll hoop, alloy outside fuel filler, vented boot lid and hardtop, Luke 4-point belt harnesses, Moto Lita steering wheel, Vicarage speedo and tach, dash mounted battery cutoff switch, Plexiglass side and rear windows, outside bonnet and boot latches and Lucas PL lights. The new recipient of this build was Mr. Mark Wright who used the E-Type at various race events throughout England. This E-Type saw use at Brands Hatch, Mallory Parkm, Donington Park, Oulton Park and Silverstone. Wright drove the Lightweight to several poles and wins. Many of his race and results sheets are accompanied in the documents file. During his ownership, Wright held the car on a V5 UK registration document. After a few years around the circuits, Wright sold the E-Type in 2001 to Mr. Aldo Vinzio of Switzerland. Mr. Vinzio was granted a FIVA identity card in 2001, of which a color copy is included in the files. After Mr. Vinzio’s ownership of limited use around Europe, the E-Type then changed hands in 2008 and was brought back to the United States by Mr. Bret Curtis, a gentlemen racer out of Austin, TX. It was then sold and road registered to a collector in California. During this ownership, the body and hardtop received a thorough repaint to period correct Jaguar Gunmetal Grey, new weather stripping, bonnet and boot latches and bonnet straps. The Zealia Lightweight E-Types have their own place in the world of Classic Jaguars. Based upon a correct E-Type chassis, this example is beautifully shaped to replicate a proper Lightweight. The result is a very light, very fast and very competent E-Type suitable for use on both road and track. While this Lightweight Conversion clearly has competition orientation, it is currently titled and road-registered in the United States. The driving experience is certainly visceral, but not so aggressive or raw that it could not be enjoyed on road focused rally or tour events, or for spirited jaunts in the countryside. This E-Type has been well taken care of by its previous owner in California and has been maintained regardless of use. This E-Type comes with a large folder with much racing documentation, ownership history, European registrations, a Zealia Engineering spec sheet and a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate. A recent road test attests to the car performing flawlessly in every way, and it is indeed ready for immediate use and enjoyment. Vehicle Warranty
