The Jaguar E-Type was initially designed and shown to the public as a grand tourer in two-seater coupé form and as a convertible roadster. Open headlights without glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged 'mouth' and twin electric fans, together with up-rated brakes are all hallmarks of the Series II cars. The interior and dashboard were also re-designed with rocker switches being substituted for toggle switches. The dashboard switches also lost their symmetrical layout. New seats were fitted which purists claim lacked the style of the originals but were certainly more comfortable; air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options.
This Jaguar E-Type was originally registered on 1st May 1969 and is a genuine UK registered right hand drive example. Described by the vendor as a car that runs and drives well, this matching numbers Jaguar is finished in red with a black leather trim and a manual gearbox. She sits well on a set of wire wheels and has a Webasto sunroof. The car is supplied with a V5C registration and an MoT test certificate valid until 18th September 2018 together with a collection of previous MoT certificates. A useable Jaguar E-Type 2+2 coupé that appears to be realistically estimated.
