This is probably your last chance to buy an unrestored E-Type Fixed Head Coupe for a reasonable price before they will be out of reach. This is a 1969 Jaguar E-Type SII FHC. Left Hand Drive. sold new to the USA but having spent some time in the UK in the Seventies. it comes with an old style UK Registration Certificate. It is a matching numbers. original colours car. It left the factory in Dark Blue with Dark Blue Leather. the same as today and it still has the engine it left the factory with. This car is a total restoration project and is missing its original gearbox. perfect for just installing a new 5 speed gearbox! The car was taken off the road 20 years ago due to some front end damage. but has now been correctly repaired.
'If Les Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans has been responsible for the new E-Type Jaguar. then that Homeric contest on the Sarthe circuit will have been abundantly justified. Here we have one of the quietest and most flexible cars on the market. capable of whispering along in top gear at 10mph or leaping into its 150mph stride on the brief depression of a pedal. A practical touring car. this. with its wide doors and capacious luggage space. yet it has a sheer beauty of line which easily beats the Italians at their own particular game. '
There have been few better summaries of the E-Type's manifest virtues than the forgoing. penned by the inimitable John Bolster for Autosport shortly after the car's debut. Although conceived and developed as an open sports car. the Jaguar E-Type debuted at the Geneva Salon in March 1961 in 3. 8-litre Coupé form. causing a sensation with its instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. Aerodynamically. the Coupé was superior to the Roadster and more accomplished Grand Routier. enjoying as it did a marginally higher top speed and the considerable convenience of a generously sized luggage platform accessed via the side-hinged rear door. The 4. 2-litre version arrived in 1965 boasting a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear alongside the bigger. torquier engine. Proposed changes in United States automobile legislation would eventually result in the revised Series 2 announced in October 1968. though modifications began to be phased in during 1967. Externally the Series 2 was readily identifiable by its larger sidelights. raised bumpers. deleted headlight covers. twin reversing lights and square rear number plate. while the interior was revised with rocker-type dashboard switches. new seats and collapsible steering column. Beneath the skin. Ad-West power steering. Girling brake callipers and an up-rated radiator were among the many Series 2 mechanical improvements.
This would make a great winter project and is probably irreplaceable at this price.
