Jaguar Etype S1. 5. 2+2 Full Matching numbers. British Racing Green with Black interior. Triple SU carbs. Heritage Certificate. Stunning and desirable colour combination of British Racing Green with Black interior. The paint is to a very high standard and highlights the cars curves perfectly. The whole interior is beautiful. with new seats covers. The dash. dials and instruments are all in great condition. The woodrim steering wheel has been covered in a leather cover. The body is extremely straight and panel gaps excellent. Although passenger door gap is not perfect. sticks out ever so slightly. Doesn't stop the door closing smoothly though. This car is does have a rust bubble on the drivers door near the bottom and just below the rear LH bumper. plus the floor pan has had a patch at some point. but apart from those things the car is a straight and solid Etype. The bonnet is in good condition. the correct series 1. 5 for this car. Engine pulls strong with a great exhaust note. Has been converted to triple SU carbs. It also handles well. The engine bay needs detailed. it would benefit greatly from being as nice as the exterior. The front ball joint rubbers will need replaced. I have the parts but just not got round to do the job. It would only take a matter of a few hours. All the chrome is slightly tired. not particularly bad and shines up well but on close inspection it's not to a high standard. All glass and seals are in good condition. The mileage is 25k. though the previous owner told me he used the car most days for the last 20 years so assume actual mileage is 125k! In summary. this is a sweet running 60's Etype with great looks but needs a bit of suspension work. I purchased and imported this car from the US. but since I have found a FHC I would like to purchase and want this car to part fund it. I also don't have the space to garage both. Includes spare wheel and tools. original maintenance book and lots of other original manuals and history. Can arrange delivery anywhere in the UK.
