The Model : The E­-Type Jaguar took the motoring world by storm in 1961 with sleek lines and staggering performance at a fraction of the price of similarly­ performing Ferraris and Aston Martins. Jaguar continuously improved the E­-Type’s safety and drivability. The Series II was comprehensively updated realization of Malcolm Sayers’ legendary design. The Series II is the perfect choice for a useable classic with better seating and improved safety features over the early cars. The cooling issues of the early cars were resolved by a larger water pump and wider air intake. Stopping power also improved with the advent of larger Girling disc brakes. All of these improvements resulted in a car that is a superior choice for the owner wishing to enjoy all-day touring in a car that is well­-suited to modern road conditions.

The Car: This beautifully presented E­-Type shows striking burgundy paint and an outstanding black leather interior. Already an outstanding choice as a reliable and comfortable tourer, the addition of the rare optional headrests and sun visors add to the appeal that make Series II E-Types the perfect choice for owners who want a truly useable classic car. Redline radials further modernize handling and are paired with outstanding chrome wire knock­off wheels. Discerning buyers have caught on to the value that these Series II cars represent. With limited miles since its upgrades that included a color­matched burgundy top, this E­-Type is ready for the road and is certain to be a welcome entry at any vintage event.
