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 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 and air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options.

Despatched from Jaguar Cars on 16th September 1969 this E-Type was distributed to their New York concessionaires, prior to registration in California. Repatriated to the UK in 2018 this Series II coupé underwent a comprehensive restoration over a four-year period, including a glass out respray. A hi-torque starter motor has been fitted, together with electronic ignition, an upgraded alternator, new master cylinder and a stainless steel exhaust. Presenting now in Gunmetal Grey with red leather interior, this E-Type was converted to right hand drive during the restoration. Reported to drive with no known faults this Jaguar, with its automatic transmission and power steering offers ease of motoring. A comprehensive history folder, together with a V5C registration document, Jaguar Heritage Certificate and an MoT test certificate valid until 11th June 2024 accompany this delightful 2+2 coupé. Without doubt this is a Jaguar E-Type that can be purchased with confidence and one that can be enjoyed immediately. Consigned by Stewart Banks.
