This is a 1970 Jaguar E-Type SII Roadster, Left Hand Drive, sold new to Canada. It was delivered in British Racing Green with Suede Green Leather and it still has the same combination today.
The car was restored some years ago and still presents very well today with only a few minor cosmetic blemishes on the bonnet. The interior is beautiful and worthy of a car selling for double the price. The car is UK Registered, although Left hand Drive, and drives exactly as it should. All the dials and instruments work as they should and there is nothing to address.
*4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine *150 mph performance *Four-speed manual transmission. The first significant upgrade of Jaguar's sensational E-Type sports car occurred in October 1964 with the launch of the 4.2-liter version. Along with the bigger, torquier engine came a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear, and a superior Lockheed brake servo. The car's external appearance was largely unchanged, but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements. These mainly concerned the cooling and electrical systems, the latter gaining an alternator and adopting the industry standard negative ground, while the interior boasted a matte black dashboard and improved seating arrangements.
The top speed of around 150mph remained unchanged, the main performance gain being improved acceleration. Like its 3.8-liter predecessor, the 4.2-liter E-Type was built in roadster and coupe forms, and in 1966 gained an additional 2+2 coupe variant on a 9" longer wheelbase.
In 1968 all three versions of the E-Type underwent major revision to comply with US safety and emissions legislation, emerging in 'Series II' guise minus the original's distinctive headlight covers. In addition, enlarged side and rear lights were adopted while a thickened front bumper center section bridged a larger radiator intake.
Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles.
This is a beautiful car in great colours that can be used as it is or gently improved, as you choose. It is priced keenly in the current E-Type market and will make the next owner extremely proud. It is perfect for that holiday home or for prolonged European cruising and can also be registered anywhere with little effort as it is currently UK registered.
