Launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show. the Jaguar E-Type
3. 8-Litre was nothing short of a revelation. With its heady blend
of supercar performance. breathtaking styling and low price tag. br/>the newcomer left rivals reeling and customers clamoring. Early
sportscar racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy
Salvadori. amongst others. helped cement its reputation. In 1968
and due largely to US regulations. the E-Type underwent several
design changes and improvements. The new Series II Jaguar E-Type
can be identified by its open headlights without glass covers. a
wrap-around rear bumper. re-positioned larger front indicators. br/>tail lights below the bumpers. better cooling aided by an enlarged
'mouth' with twin electric fans. and up-rated brakes. The engine is
easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam
covers to a more industrial 'ribbed' appearance. The interior and
dashboard were also re-designed. with rocker switches being
substituted for toggle switches. Head restraints. a collapsible
steering column and an all synchromesh gearbox improved safety and
comfort for the occupants.

This four owner. Series II E-Type roadster was originally
supplied by PJ Evans. Birmingham and was taken by the first owner
Mr. William Kirkpatrick to Northern Ireland in September 1978. Mr.
Kirkpatrick owned the car for eighteen years before selling it to
Mr. Charles Pollock in August 1988. In June 1989 the E-Type went to
JC Restorations for a full restoration. changing the colour from
its original blue to Signal Red however. just prior to
completion. Mr Pollock unfortunately passed away and the car
was put into dry storage for approximately the next fourteen years.
The next owner. Mr Harold McGarrity. bought the car in October 2007
and used it for over two years before it was purchased by the
current vendor in January 2010 and repatriated back to England. In
July of the same year. the vendor was not happy with the gearbox
and clutch and was recommended by the Jaguar Club to go to Watjag
Ltd in Derby to have a new gearbox fitted. After an inspection
which showed that the restoration work on the body had been done to
the highest of standards. it was decided to complete the
restoration. This resulted in a complete engine re-build including
new cylinder liners. a new T5 five-speed gearbox. new clutch. a
rear end removal and overhaul. radiator rebuild (which was later
replaced with a new one) and various other improvements. All this
work cost over £18. 00; money the vendor says was well spent as it
drives perfectly. Since this car has been in his ownership it has
been meticulously maintained and he has kept a record of the times
it was wax-oiled. serviced and taken out to Jaguar and classic car

This 1970 Series II Roadster. finished in Signal Red with beige
leather seats. is supplied with a V5C registration document. an MoT
test certificate which expires in March 2016 and a large file
containing old log books. MoTs. a Jaguar Daimler Heritage
certificate. various photographs and a file of invoices dating from
2010. This is in superb condition throughout and is the perfect car
for someone looking for a roadster to drive and enjoy.
