Back ground to the car :
Originally supplied by Dutton Forshaw. edford . /span>
The first owner JFitzgerald (builders) Wolverton Bedford
The car then went through 4 more keepers before it was sold to it's previous owner in 1981. e then owned the vehicle 27 years before sale to its last keeper.
During the ownership of the last two keepers the have covered just over 1000 miles a year (in fact since in the last 20 years just 4000 mls! )
Most of the bills are in the last 33 years and show the amount of care spent on the vehicle.
So condition of the car.
I will be as critical as I can . /span>
The Bodywork is in lovely condition with no discernible issues that require attention . he bonnet inner structure is excellent likewise the screen surround “A” Pillar /B slam panels/sill sections/valances.
The Magenta paintwork is excellent with good depth of shine. he colour really does suit the car”
The leather is carrying just the right amount of patina to suit the age of the vehicle. the door cards . dash panels . rash pad all good.
As mentioned above. he engine was replaced after a fan failure caused overheating damage to the original unit . suffice to say the engine is excellent . ery quiet valve gear . ood compression. does not burn oil . /span>
The engine has also had detailing carried out to the inlet manifolds. cambox covers filter boxes etc all powder coated. /span>
The ignition system has been updated to Opus” electronic . ecent replacement twin kenlowe fans.
Now and again I get a slight oil weep from the n/s cam box cover . ut it is very tiny . will endeavour to get a new gasket prior to sale.
The Borg Warner automatic unit is smooth in operation and entirely suit to the big V12's torque
No wind up or suspicious noises”
The car pulls up true and with good retardation .
Fitted with period Dunlop sp” ER 70 /15 al-round on Jaguar chrome 6jx15 wheels
The car also has a stunning set of totally refurbished 72 spoke wires/spinners plus there is the rear splined hub adaptors.
At the time of writing the only thing not working as per specification . the heater fan that that is a bit hit or miss” tachometer “ since the ignition upgrade needs a distributor impulse trigger unit to send signal to the tachometer
Nice original fittings with some pitting to the bumpers (as you would expect for some 40 years ) but carrying good shine.
On The Road:
Jaguars original trans” continental express and this particular car has done just that! In her earlier life having been to Germany and back.
Now used on high days and holidays. he car has such presence and always gets admiring comments . ith that iconic view from the driver's seat across the bonnet that seems to stretch into infinity”
It is so smooth with that almost turbine like sound from the big v12 and muted exhaust note emanating from the fan tail 4 exhausts. span > recently on a 120 mile journey across motorway and country roads dealt with aplomb the road conditions . ut do bear in mind ‘ it is low .
The Jaguar E type has now become the collectors icon it was always quite rightly intended to be . /span>
Here is a chance to own a very good UK car with good provenance at ‘No Reserve” if looked after' the blue chip investment status is assured . lus you have the bonus of driving what in my humble opinion one of the most magnificent things on 4 wheels
THE JAGUAR E TYPE!

It sold as a collctors item and due to it's age not intended for everyday transport
