As with most new vehicles, the inevitability of mistakes in early-batch production is almost a necessity — and that doesn’t exclude one of the most prominent cars to ever be built. It might come as a surprise, but Jaguar’s E-Type Roadster was actually somewhat problematic at the time of its release, resulting in a quick redesign that would eventually leave the first 500 variants with an unshakable reputation as the black sheep of the model’s 15-year tenure.

The 1961 Jaguar E-Type OTS pictured here is one such example — an excitingly early platform that retains many of the company’s original design choices. These now-desirable traits include outside bonnet latches, which were replaced by an improved door jam mechanism in 1962; flat floors, which were a nuisance to drivers due to cramped conditions; welded hood louvers, retired in ‘62 for a more efficient stamped louver; and body color headlight buckets, which aren’t found on any model outside of the 1961. After its purchase in 1977, it sat for over 35 years as the current owner located, researched, and acquired replacement parts for the vehicle. A full restoration was started in 2012 and, by 2015, the vehicle was built to the exacting standards of its inspirational colleague, the 1961 Geneva Show car.
