    * Beautiful Opalescent Maroon paint with Biscuit Interior
    * No expense spared restoration
    * Numbers matching - Correct in virtually every detail
    * Matching hardtop with rare chrome trim also included
    * Featured in 50th Anniversary of Road & Track magazine
    * Looks and drives great!
    * Any and all questions are welcome and encouraged.  
I have been the owner for the last 10 years of this original. numbers matching. rust free California car.   The restoration was completed by the previous owner. and all correct fasteners and fittings were utilized.   All receipts and pictures from the restoration are available.

The car is in fantastic condition and runs great and looks great.   The hardtop exterior has been painted to match the car color. but the headliner on the hardtop needs to be restored.   The sale also includes the chrome for the hardtop including the rear window trim which is very difficult to find.

Overall condition is 1- or 2+.   Will place in any regional event!
    Paint - Excellent
    Chrome - Excellent
    Mechanical Condition - Excellent
    Interior - Very Good. some minor wear
    Hardtop - Unrestored. exterior and chrome in very good condition. headliner and window need to be restored
This car is turn key and show beautifully and will easily complete a 1. 00 mile drive.   It could use a detail and it's about time for a tune up. but as you can see from the pictures and videos this car is ready to be enjoyed.

So why am I selling it?

Everytime I have shown this car at an event. multiple people come up to me and tell stories about how they used to have an E-type and that they wish they had never sold it.   I'm sure I will be one of those people too.   I love this car!!  Everytime I drive it. I'm amazed at the performance of an almost 50 year old car.   Even just seeing the outline of the car under it's cover takes my breath away.

But. I have a family of 5 with three young children.   I really want to have a car that all of us can enjoy at the same time.   When the children are in college and off on their own. I will buy another E-type.

I also want a car that is more of a daily driver.   This car is quite simply too nice to use that way.   I have owned the car for 10 years. and I have only put less than 5. 00 miles on it.

Comments and questions to the seller:

from Laurent Rassauw, dated 05 march 2014
Hi,

I have some questions about this car you offer for sale.
It will give me good impression on the condition of the car, and it would allow me to get an idea of what I would have to do or to restore on the car.

- Could you please send me as many pictures as possible from interior, exterior and engine
Also details of registration numbers, soft top, dashboard, seats, trunk, spare well, underneath the car, underneath doors, etc… ?

- Does the car drive, steer, brake, shift gears, etc... as it should do?

- Is this a car I could just start up and drive and enjoy immediately? (without having to do any work on it first?)

- Is it matching numbers?

- Has it ever been accidented or had work at the body?

- Are there any traces of rust or rot?

- Is the paintwork in good condition? (no cracks, chips, bubbling, or 'orange skin' effect?)

- Is the chrome ok?

- Are the rubber seals ok? (not dried out our cracked?)

Thank you for all the answers and for your quick reply,
Best regards from Belgium,

Laurent
