Description

This Series 2 roadster was purchased new by one Lewis Essex of Richmond, Surrey on 23rd June 1970, and some 20 years later, on 1st April 1990, was sold to John Hume of London. Used regularly and well maintained by Mr Hume, it was purchased by the current vendor in December 2014. Before then, in 1991, the E-Type had been restored, both cosmetically and mechanically, by Mill Lane Engineering of Farnham, Surrey (bills on file). In 1999 the engine was rebuilt again, on this occasion by Jaguar specialists W&S Autos of Chobham, Surrey, who have continued to maintain the car ever since. New MWS wire wheels were fitted in 2000.
Further extensive works were carried out by W&S with a bill of around £20k. The E-Type is presented today in beautiful condition, driving very well.
