The Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series 1.5 2+2 offered here at Hendon Way Motors is finished in Opalescent Gunmetal Grey with Black leather interior. It was commissioned by a client who wanted the ultimate, no expense spared, bespoke E-Type capable of touring through Europe but equally happy on his commute into London so work was undertaken by the Berkshire E-Type specialist Automo who strove to bring his dream to fruition. This stunning nut and bolt restoration started with the body and chassis being media blasted and any necessary panels replaced prior to an in-house bare metal re-spray with fresh chrome work fitted. Attention then passed to the running gear and a full engine rebuild including: enlarging the capacity to 4.3 litre, a lightened flywheel, new electronic ignition system, new timing chains, triple 45 Webber carburettors, alloy cooling upgrade, uprated oil pump, high torque starter motor, and stainless-steel exhaust system. To complement the fast road specification engine, the car has been fitted with a 5-speed gearbox, upgraded Coopercraft brakes, adjustable suspension and power steering. Other notable works included a full interior re-trim including carpets and headlining, fitting a discreet DAB radio with Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, remote central locking and alarm system and with tracking, series 1 closed headlamp upgrade with halogen lamps, full re-wire, new full exhaust system and stainless-steel wire wheels. The vehicle is offered for sale with a current V5 registration document, MOT certificate valid Hardback book showing various restoration stages. The car was featured in E-Type club magazine in November 2017. This stunning car offers the purchaser an opportunity to own a unique example of a true modernised British classic, which will certainly appreciate further over time.
