  • Desirable Series II Fixedhead Coupé model
  • Excellent chrome wire wheels
  • Matching numbers and offered without reserve

Powered by the uprated 4.2 litre engine, compared to the 3.8 litre unit fitted to the previous model, the series II E-Type offers longer legs for those continental drivers as well as offering a more practical sports car experience. Those classic E-Type styling cues though, are still very much present with that most beautiful of bonnet lines extending all the way back, taking in the fixedhead cockpit and the ending in the beautifully curved rear end. Interestingly, the DNA from Sir William Lyons only extended to about 1,000 units of this model making it, actually, a rare iteration of this particular E-Type Jaguar.

This classic Signal Red example is supplied with a comprehensive history file detailing works going back many years. Most recently though, is a service earlier this year to include a partial carburettor strip down and rebuild. Before that in 2020, a new fuel tank with galvanised assembly, sender unit and gaskets were fitted including a clear-out of all fuel lines with all parts supplied from SNG Barratt. Back in 2010, both seats were removed, carpet taken out, floor checked for rust and treated. The carpet was then refitted including seat foam, carpet shelf and speaker housing unit. Whilst there is minor corrosion to the wheel arches, the condition of the paint is good and the chrome wire wheels are in excellent condition. There is detailed and photographic documentation, in 2009, of the rear subframe removal and strip down. It was then sandblasted with components powder-coated and reassembled with new brake pads and discs fitted, the calipers refurbished followed by reassembly. Supplied with a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate and MoT test certificate valid until March 2024, this is a very usable matching numbers example and rare to find offered without reserve.
