FOR SALE: Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series II 1969 for sale
Current customer rating: (84 votes) based on
Disc brakes. Wooden steering wheel. Seat belts. Dash clock. Glove compartment. Cigarette lighter. Ash tray. Spare wheel.
This very early series II is number 14 of the LHD fixed head coupes built. As such it is fitted with the more attractive Series I bonnet. as confirmed by the chassis number. Since coming out of storage the car has been treated to a bare metal re-spray. Having previously resided in a dry USA state. the Jaguar had minimal corrosion and so only minor metalwork repairs were required; this is documented by photographs in the history file.
Since the E-Type has never required major restoration all the panels are believed to be original. and the shut lines are correct. When the car was rebuilt all of the rubber seals where replaced and the original bumpers re-chromed. The Regency Red paintwork now has a beautiful deep shine and looks sublime with the sparkling chrome and parchment leather interior. It is not a flawless concours car but presents to an excellent standard and makes for a great investment to drive and enjoy.
Prior to the car's refurbishment the interior was in perfectly good order. but the decision was made to have it fully re-trimmed in supple parchment leather. The seats and centre console now present in perfect. unmarked condition with new piped upholstery. The door cards and all other panels have been correctly trimmed in matching vinyl.
The car has also been treated to a fresh set of fitted carpets. Furthermore the dash remains in its original condition and is free from any damage. with all switchgear presenting in good order too. The wooden steering wheel retains an excellent finish. as does the gear knob. handbrake. and the rear luggage area.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Once unlatched. the vast front end lifts with ease to reveal the 4. 2-litre straight-six engine. Being a Californian E-Type this example is fitted with twin Zenith-Stromberg carburettors producing 245hp.
The engine bay is in very presentable condition but could benefit from further detailing to make perfect. Having been very recently overhauled the car remains in great mechanical fettle. starting first turn of the key with a little choke. and drives extremely well.
WHEELS. TYRES & BRAKES
Sitting on the correct set of 15-inch ‘knock-off' wire wheels. the E-Type maintains a truly vintage aesthetic. They are in good order with only minor age-related wear to note.
The wheels are shod in a matching set of period Michelin tyres with ample tread remaining. Behind the spokes the disc brakes present in good order. stopping the car quickly and with ease.
This E-type was manufactured in 1968. and was the fourteenth left-hand drive Series II fixed head coupe off the production line. As a result the car was fitted with the more attractive Series I bonnet. rather than the subsequent larger ‘mouth' variation. The chassis number confirms this although the car was not then registered until 1969. The Jaguar remained in California until 1991 and was in regular use up until that point. details of which are documented in a hand written service log present in the history. It was then imported to the UK and driven up until 1999. when it then remained in dry storage until 2012.
The car has had a recent re-commissioning to include both a cosmetic and mechanical overhaul. and the mileage of 84. 79 is believed genuine. Present in the history file is a huge stack of invoices for parts and works carried out over recent years. There are also several UK MOT certificates. photographs taken during the restorative work. as well as the US Title Certificate.
