1970 Jaguar E Type 4.2 Series 2  Manual

Possibly the most iconic sports car of modern times, the Jaguar E Type still turns head even now over 50 years since its launch.  The Sweeping curves coupled with its shark nose give high speed looks even when the car is stationary.
The E Type we offer for sale here  left the factory on the 12th of January 1970 and was sold through the Leeds Distributor, Automobile Centre. The car is still to its original spec and has not been modified in any way. Still in its original factory Signal Red with Black leather interior, still with wire wheels.
So the car is original Matching Number spec, and although it has been restored in its life, and finished absolutely superbly,  it does represent the Series 2 E Type exactly as it left the factory, and how it went to its first owner, a Leeds business man on 19th of January 1970. It’s also only had 6 keepers in total.
The car is showing a genuine 87000 miles, and the history file contains bills invoices and MOT’s going right back to 1970, and that file contains the production record for the car too.
The car is simply stunning with the best panel fit of any E Type I’ve ever come across.  The paintwork is simply outstanding, and the chrome looks almost like the day the car left the factory in 1970.
I’ve known the car for many years as I knew its owner personally. It’s been used properly and cared for like a baby. The owner was a true enthusiast, and as the car was well known, and also known to be both original and well maintained, it was used by Jaguar on a number of occasions for marketing and advertising purposes including the launch of the XK8 in 1996, with a framed photo presented to the owner by Jaguar as a thank you for the loan of the car. This photo comes with the car.
If you’re seeking a Jaguar E Type Fixed Head Coupe, and originality is everything, this definitely is the car for you. Totally original, totally stunning and it would grace anyone’s  driveway and garage.

This car is sensibly priced at only £65995. The condition of the car, its originality, it’s history and it’s provenance make this one very special Jaguar.
