This is a lovely UK, Right Hand Drive, Matching Numbers E-Type SII Roadster. It is finished in Red with Black Leather and has been completely restored within the last 10 years or so. It drives exactly as it should and needs nothing but a new owner and a service for your peace of mind.
*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 car is currently registered in Germany but will come fully UK registered with a new Tax and MOT. Is really is one of the nicest cars we have ever had. If you are looking for a great value restored car, then look no further. We do not expect it to hang around at the asking price.
