Jaguar E Type Semi-lightweight 1962
The inspiration for KMG23 came from the 1962 Cunningham Le Mans E Types and the handful of 1961 semi-lightweight E Types that Jaguar built in the same period. Jaguar?s chief designer, Claude Baily, asked on the 16th March 1961 that the production department build seven factory prepared right-hand drive roadsters to competition specification.
Key Modifications for the semi-lightweight were;
Retain the basic steel monocoque, but replace the following areas with aluminium body panels
- All aluminium boot floor, passenger compartment floor,
- Aluminium boot lid with vent,
- Aluminium doors,
- Aluminium bonnet,
- Aluminium fuel tank with external quick release filler,
- Perspex side windows with pull up mechanism,
- lightweight Dunlop alloy wheels,
- Free flow exhaust manifold in stainless steel,
- Aluminium radiator,
- Balanced engine, big valves and D Type camshafts,
- Triple 45 DCOE Weber carburettors
KMG23 was painstakingly restored to the semi-lightweight specifications over a 25 year period by several owners. This car has never been raced and would be a joy for a Jaguar enthusiast to own. It runs and drives beautifully. The E Type complies with FIA homologation papers 34 and 100 if the new owner wants to take it Historic racing. The front brakes are reconditioned with stainless steel pistons, new rotors and pads. The gearbox is the all syncromesh E type box. The original Series One E Type seats have been re-upholstered.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase such an exciting Jaguar E Type, which would probably command a similar price in pounds in the UK.
Will consider interesting trade-in of classic cars. Call 021 1332 895.
