Impressive '69 E Type with large history file since virtually new . The car was originally sold by Baker motors . Atlanta and remained with the owner until resold in 1977. It stayed in the metro Atlanta area where it was restored over a lengthy period using original parts supplied from the UK . NO RUST repairs were needed and extensive documentation receipts and packets of "old style" photos accompany the car . Car is numbers matching. comes with original engine and gearbox . the only modifications made are the triple carb setup as found on the series 1 cars . and the use of a Jaguar XJ6 series 111 cylinder head that has the larger valves . both improve performance. and the original head. carbs and inlet manifold are included with the car . Car was stored for 20 years before being revived in 2012 by Speedwell Cars ( A British classic car restoration shop in GA) and mileage based on records is believed to be correct . On reviving the car from its lengthy sleep prior to my purchase in early 2013 . the following was done :Remove fuel tank. fuel pump . replace filter. lines and boil tank . Remove carbs and rebuild. Remove cylinder head . perform valve job. install hardened exhaust valve seats. exhaust manifolds ceramic coated. Checked all for integrity and reinstall with new gaskets. Full fluids change. flushing of all lines. new filters . new hoses. lube and grease all fittings. replaced four ball-joint gators. New battery. new tires - Vredstein H rated 185HR15 Sprint . Engine compression 150lb all 6 cylinders. Complete check of electrics . operational functionality and road testing. The car starts easily and settles into a nice idle . oil pressure around 40 psi at warm idle. the clutch engages exactly as it should . car accelerates easily and purposefully . the original 4 speed gearbox is very smooth . No rattles. queaks. just silken power and instantaneous response. Steering is tight and suspension compliant. a very nice ride . Brakes work perfectly . car stops quickly in a straight line. The interior is very nice. the black leather is supple . seats are comfortable . dash. steering wheel and interior door panels are really nice. The paint is now nearly 30 years old but shows beautifully . there are a few small blemishes in the finish. in a few places (white spots shown in the photos. but hard to see unless up very close. and in now way detract from the overall impressions of the car . she is beautiful !Reason for selling as it was a present for my wife who loves her Range Rover and has not driven it in nearly 5 years !! I start the car and occasionally drive her . she has recently been serviced and checked out by our European car specialist garage. found to be in fantastic rust free shape with a clean undercarriage . so feel confident this is a really good and "no excuses" Jaguar . She can be driven or shipped anywhere ( I will help coordinate shipping ).
