ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com.This is a stunning older concours quality 1969 Jaguar Series II E-Type OTS roadster that has benefitted from a no expense spared restoration of a rust-free nice original motorcar that was cared for by one family for 45 years. Now restored with a total investment in excess of $320,000, this Jaguar is spectacular.
The restoration started with a solid, nice rust-free original example having been owned by one family for 45 years. The Jaguars previous owner was the Cade family from Longview, TX and this example was acquired specifically because of its provenance of being a nice original rust-free car with its numbers matching engine. It was bought by the present owner in 2016.
The restoration was completed in November of 2018 by Doctor Jag Technologies in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The purchase and parts alone cost in excess of $86,000, documented with numerous pages of single-spaced lines of accounting detail. The stack of receipts is literally inches thick. The labor value was $230,000 for the 2,100 hours the craftsmen and engineers spent rebuilding this incredible roadster. This is part of a 70-car collection, including 26 Jaguars.
This E-Type has been beautifully finished in Willow Green and has the chrome wire wheels, giving it a spectacular look. The paint, chrome and all the finish work are all in excellent condition. This is ready to be competitive at concours events.
The gorgeous black leather interior and matching black carpeting is all new and without fault. New Jaguar branded seatbelts have been installed and everything in the interior is as-new. The dash, instruments and door panels are also either new or restored. Everything works as it should.
The heart of this particular E-Type is what lies beneath the bonnet. The engine pulls strong and operates perfectly. During the restoration, the Jaguar was equipped with headers for more spirited performance. It has its numbers matching engine and the motorcar comes with its original data plate, receipts and records of the restoration and the Historical Society certificate.
An independent inspection was conducted and the report is available for your review. It confirms the pristine condition of this roadster, as you would expect with a fresh restoration. If you are interested in acquiring the ultimate E-Type that is essentially as-new or better than new, this may be your motorcar.
