The E-Type was initially designed as a rear-wheel drive Grand Tourer in two-seater Coupé form, and as a two-seater Convertible. On its release Enzo Ferrari called it "The most beautiful car ever made".

The Series 1 cars, which are by far the most valuable, essentially fall into two categories: Those made between 1961 and 1964, which had 3.8 litre engines and non-synchromesh transmissions, and those made between 1965-1967, which increased engine size and torque by around 10%, added a fully synchronised transmission, and also provided new reclining seats, an alternator in place of the prior generator, an electrical system switched to negative ground, and other modern amenities, all while keeping the same classic Series 1 styling. The 4.2 litre Series 1 E-Types also replaced the brake booster of the 3.8 litre with a more reliable unit.

This extremely well presented E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster was fully restored in 2002, and there is a DVD showing the work that was done. The car remains in very good condition, the bodywork, trim and mechanicals are all excellent . The car has recently had a complete new wiring loom, the rear splined hubs have been re-newed, and the car has new wheels and tyres. The last owner of this car spent £142,000 buying the car and getting it to the condition it is in today. The car also comes with an Heritage Certificate.
