1970 Jaguar E Type 4.2 litre OTS Convertible For Sale
Vin Number: 1R 1478
Registration Number: HHC539H
A lovely car restored some years ago & very little used since. This is a very late production series 2 & unusually comes with the optional pressed chrome wheels later found on the incoming V12 models.
Accompanying this car is a large history file with invoices dating back to 1981 and MoT test certificates to 1975 verifying the mileage as correct. This is a very original, well maintained and non-modified car, it was subject to a sympathetic restoration over 3 years that included body and paintwork, a full retrim, new hood and a full mechanical overhaul.
The car is of course in impeccable order thoughout. Brand new black leather is installed to the interior along with black carpets & door cards. Exterior paint is signal red as when new. The car is matching numbers/colours as it left the factory.
All mechanics were rebuilt at the time of restoration resulting in a strong engine with ample power from the crisp twin cam straight six engine breathing though triple carburettors. A new black mohair top completes the ensemble.
Assorted paperwork comes with the car including a Jaguar heritage certificate & MOT certificates backing up the minimel mileage covered since restoration. The car is part of a 50 car collection & whilst regulary exercised few miles are covered each year.
The Series II E-Types have many improvements over the Series I cars including better lighting, brakes and cooling and importantly an improved gear change and smoother engine along with more comfortable seats & more room inside.
