GM Cheltenham offer. an exceptional Jaguar E-type Series Two Coupe. This car was originally sold new in Encinitas. California to it's first owner. It was sold again in 1974 to it's second owner with 47. 00 miles on the speedometer. It was then in the possession of this second owner for the next 40 years. still retaining it's original pair of CA blue and yellow license plates and pink slip from 1974. It was a very well loved and well maintained car. The current mileage of 99. 00 is the believed original mileage. according to his heirs. It appears that the car has never been mechanically rebuilt. testament to the fact of the car receiving the utmost care and servicing on a quality Jaguar. It runs. drives. stops. steers. and holds the road wonderfully well for a car of this period. It was comprehensively cosmetically restored in 1997 by Jaguar marque specialist "More Than Just Cars" in Upland. CA and is still presenting extremely well today. as evidenced by the photos.
The restoration in 1997 involved a complete removal of glass. chrome. rubber. and interior. It was then sent out for specialist paintwork and the car's exterior body panels were stripped to bare metal. The car was then etch primed. and show quality body and paint was then carried out with great results in the original Regency Red correct Jaguar color. All of the chromework was replated to a high standard and fitted back onto the car. The glass was re-installed with a new rubber kit. The car's interior was treated to a new and correct Black trim kit with leather seats. a new seat foam kit. panel kit. carpet kit. dash top pad. etc. A new headliner was installed. Some E-types can be difficult to get in and out of. This car is fitted with a very useful smaller steering wheel. 4 brand-new Dayton stainless wire wheels were purchased and fitted with expensive Michelin 185xHR15 XVS radial tires. The car still retains it's original 5th chrome wire wheel and factory Dunlop spare tire in mint condition. The car includes photographic evidence of the complete restoration.
The car's engine compartment is highly original and received only a light detailing. It was refreshed to be in keeping with the rest of the car. The car has a small history file of maintenance and work carried out on it mechanically. The engine is clean and has very good oil pressure. registering 55 psi along the road at 2000 RPM. It settles at about 22-25 psi at hot idle. There is no smoke on start up or unfamiliar Jaguar noises. The clutch feels very nice and bites well. The gearbox shifts nice and positively through it's 4 gears with excellent syncromesh. The rear axle behaves properly and has had it's shocks replaced at some point. The brakes pull up very well. The front suspension has been rebushed with upgraded polyurethane bushings. The car has no mechanical needs at all. This is an excellent driving car with original mileage and good maintenance history.
Overall. one would be hard pushed to find a better Series Two Coupe on today's market ready to drive. use. and enjoy. This Jaguar E-type has an enviable two-owner California history from new. the last owner from the past 4 decades. It is offered here in it's original color scheme and has enjoyed an excellent cosmetic restoration that is still presenting beautifully. It is sold with it's original owner's operating manual and all associated warranty booklets from new. in the original Jaguar pouch. Also included is a factory workshop manual and the Robert Bentley version. This car represents very good value. as the costs of restoration to restore E-types continues to escalate. Such a nice car will prove to be a sound investment going forward.
