|Odometer reading||57,360 miles|
|Estimate||£27,000 - £33,000|
|Result||Sold - £28,300|
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 taillights 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 Coupé was imported into the UK in 2018 and is presented in red over a black leather interior. Various work has been completed since import including new floor pans, a comprehensive brake overhaul, new electronic distributor, new exhaust, and a new battery. Described by the vendor to run and drive well, it is supplied with a history folder including a V5/C registration document, sundry invoices, and import and taxes paid documents. This genuine left hand drive E-Type Series II 2+2 4.2 Coupé sits proudly and is ready to be enjoyed by a new custodian.
