I purchased this 1967 Series One E-Type Roadster in 2009 from the then 91 year old original owner, Mr Charles Berberat of Waterbury, Connecticut. At that time there were 32,960 original miles on the odometer. Mr Berberat purchased the Jag new in August of 1967 while in his 65th year, in celebration of his own retirement. It was never abused or neglected, kept in heated storage during its first 26 years, and sparingly driven on weekends each summer season.
These RARE late Series One 4.2 E-Types came with Open Headlights. Never any rust, accident damage, or panel replacement. There are presently 36,043 original miles. It is of course matching numbers, and has a 3.54 rear axle. It was cared for over the years in such a meticulous manner that in every way it more resembles an original 18,000 mile E-Type, rather than the original 36,000 mile E-Type that it actually is. Ideal for collector, investor, or simply just driving pleasure.
Highly desirable original color combination. There has only been one re-paint of the Factory Original British Racing Green, which is still showing beautifully. The Suede Green interior is entirely original, and in extraordinary condition from the leather seats to the floor carpets! Even the original winged seatbelts and the passenger toeboard are still present, while in remarkable condition.
Although the Convertible Top has been replaced, and fitted with a beautiful black sunfast canvas top, I still do have the original 40 year old Convertible Top put aside. The original Convertible Top Frame still retains all of its original paint. The original Convertible Top Boot is simply amazing! All chrome is original and still beautiful. The original owner once told me that he never even handled the steering wheel without wearing his leather driving gloves, and they are still in the cubby box today, just where he last left them back in 1993...
Original linen-lined tool wrap with all 22 original tools present. Original jack with bag. Original paperwork, manuals, brochures, and Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Original Windshield Wiper Blades. BUT MOST AMAZING OF ALL, this Jag still sits on its original 40 year old, albeit VERY worn, Dunlop 6.40 x 15, RS5 bi-ply whitewall tires still mounted on their original chrome wire wheels! And the spare has never even been on the ground!
The engine, gearbox, and rear end, are all original. Runs strong, cool, and tight with no unusual noises, smoking, or leaks of any kind. And it even still retains all of its original Cheney hose clamps.
This E-Type presents a rare opportunity for the true collector. Here is an extremely well preserved original example, yet it is also a turn-key car. Although every effort was made by both the original owner and myself to preserve as much authenticity and originality as possible, emphasis has also been placed on keeping the Jag running and driving. And in turn, other than finally needing a new set of tires, it can be driven anywhere with complete confidence.
I am neither a broker or dealer, rather just a long time Jaguar hobbyist/enthusiast. This is a Private Party sale. Clear Title in my name. No excuses or stories.
