The spectacular 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Litre Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Opalescent Maroon over a black leather interior and black folding convertible top. This incredible example was completed by the Coventry works in May 1967 and was subsequently sold new to collector-owner Prof. Dean Edmonds Jr. through Auto Engineering Inc. of Lexington, Massachusetts. Mr. Edmonds, a Doctorial graduate of MIT and Professor of Physics at Boston University, is credited for his work on developing the cesium atomic clock and today is recognized with his name on the Wall of Honor in the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. A respected automotive collector and connoisseur in his own wright, his personal collection included several notable Jaguars and even a Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport! Mr. Edmonds was so particular that he insisted on picking up the E-type new at the port in 1967 and he drove the car himself to Automotive Engineering for its pre-delivery inspection. The rarely seen Series I¼ arrangement is highly regarded today by Jaguar enthusiasts as these were the first E-Types to feature more comfortable seats while retaining the toggle switches on the dash and triple SU carburetor induction; a combination that is often regarded as the best variation of all Jaguar E-Types. Further research by Edmonds led him to the concluded that his E-type was perhaps the last example to be imported to the U.S. with triple SU carburetors, a feature not seen on the Series I½ and Series II models. With this E-type being of such significance Mr. Edmonds was often contacted by other E-Type owners who were using this example as a guide for their restoration projects. After nearly 40 years of ownership Mr. Edmonds entrusted the specialists at Manfred's Automotive Specialties in Florida to recondition his cherished E-type at a cost of over $100,000. Manfred's addressed the complete mechanical aspects of the Jaguar while cosmetic attention was given where needed to bring the E-Type back to virtually like new condition while retaining the original interior! Today the Jaguar presents in spectacular condition while having traveled only 7,237 actual miles from new. As one would expect to find from a one-owner, low mileage example and unprecedented assortment of documentation accompanies this investment grade Series I E-type including the original invoice, carbon copy of the check Edmonds used to pay for the car, service records and correspondence letters dating back from new, the original tool kit, owner's manual, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, original window sticker and more.
