 I have been collecting Jaguar e-type for over 30 years and rarely have I had an e-type that has me this excited. The car only has 26K original miles.  The color combination of Greensand with green interior is original and very rare. I've owned many e-type in the traditional colors (red. silver. BRG. white. etc) and it is refreshing seeing one in a color that makes it stand out in the crowd. The paint is mostly original with the
exception of the bonnet which was repainted some time ago. The interior was redone within the last 3 years to very high standards. Chrome. glass. wire wheels and tires are excellent. Black soft top is in excellent condition. Includes the rare removable hardtop. To top it off the car has the manual gearbox instead of the slush box.

This is an unmolested e-type that has been very well maintained. Some sensible upgrades were done which greatly improve the car's reliability and driving pleasure.

- a more efficient aluminum radiator was installed (which keeps the car cool)
- the rear differential was changed to 2. 88. This reduces the RPMs at higher speeds and makes highway driving much more pleasant
- upgraded ignition system. The original Lucas system is known to fail. This ignition looks like the original but the guts are upgraded
- Steering rack was rebuilt with better seals (they are known to leak)
- Front brake calipers replaced
- All 26 cooling hoses were recently replaced (this is a job that many people neglect to do since it is time consuming)
- Air conditioner was recently serviced with new compressor seals. dryer. etc. AC works fine.
- All five tires are practically new
- New clutch (pressure plate. disc. etc)
- New brake master and booster
- The ugly USA bumpers were replaced with the bumpers used on the European delivery cars. I just HATE those big rubber bumpers that USA delivered cars were forced to use. This car has the bumpers it was designed to use. and in my opinion looks so much cleaner. The car has bumper guards which I removed as I think it looks less cluttered without them. The bumper guards were a dealer option and many people had them installed when the cars were new. It comes with the guards in case you prefer to have them on.

The car was featured on the July/Aug 2012 cover of the Jaguar Journal magazine. a copy comes with the car. Includes the jack in the bag. tool kit. knock off hammer and tool. boot cover. owner's manual. Heritage Certificate. service receipts and service manual.

This car is one of those rare finds with just the right amount of patina yet has been recently attended and sorted out to enjoy. The type of car where you just put the key in . and drive.
