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 delightful Jaguar E-Type Coupé has been owned by the vendor for the last 11 years and has been fastidiously looked after. The British Racing Green paintwork is in very good order as is the chromework and the biscuit interior. Described by the vendor as mechanically ‘on the button’, firing up immediately when requested, the engine runs smoothly and quietly with good oil pressure. Supplied with a good history folder, a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate, this genuine right hand drive E-Type Series II 4.2 Coupé sits proudly on chrome wire wheels and Avon tyres. Offering the versatility to be purchased by a collector or just to be enjoyed by an enthusiast.
