Description

This elegant E-Type V12 Roadster was acquired by the vendor in 2006 from the previous owner who had owned the car for about 15 years. The mileage at that time stood at 92’943km. Since the car had not seen much use for a number of years, some recommissioning was needed to bring it back to peak performance. This included a brake and steering box overhaul, a new exhaust system in stainless steel, new wire wheel rims as well as a new top and a replacement of all water hoses. In 2007, on request from the vendor, the front and rear shock absorbers were replaced and a year later the complete interior was re-trimmed in new leather. In 2012, with 1’000 km driven since purchase, the owner decided to install a modern 5-speed gearbox for more relaxed cruising. Annoyed by abnormal noises during excursions with his E-Type, he also decided to have the CV joints in the drive shafts replaced and four new Michelin tires fitted. All this amounted to more than 95’000 CHF in receipts between 2008 and 2016. This noble Brit is now in impeccable condition, and, with the last MOT completed in 2013.
