This early 'Series 1' coupé comes with Jaguar Heritage certificate stating that it was manufactured in right-hand drive form and first registered 'AMY 941A' in Middlesex. Distributed by Henlys and retailed via Broadfield Garages of Cockfosters, the car was first owned by one E W Hunter of London N21. The original colour scheme is recorded as Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior trim. Since its acquisition by the current vendor in 2000 the E-Type has been principally maintained by Richard Watson of Forres, Morayshire, a specialist in Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce motor cars. In addition to routine maintenance, the car has been fitted with electronic ignition, a digital fuel pump and a custom-made stainless steel exhaust system, while the carburettors have been overhauled, fitted with intake trumpets and tuned. The correct Motorola radio is present, though it should be noted that both the aerial and wing mirrors have been removed to un-clutter the car's lines. Other noteworthy features include the original aluminium dashboard and transmission tunnel, and the toggle switches typical of early cars, while on the windscreen is a plastic Jaguar badge with running in instructions on the reverse. Some 15 years ago, while the Jaguar was in previous ownership, the interior was re-trimmed in the current grey leather with matching carpets.
Driven from Inverness to London in the spring of 2010, and then to France for a summer's motoring, the E-Type was sent to Hofmanns of Henley on its return for the brakes and suspension to be overhauled. More recently the car has benefited from bodywork refurbishment by James Grant of Grantown-on-Spey. Bills for the aforementioned works are on file together with others dating back to 1991, the total spent over that last 22 years being well in excess of £21,000. Taxed and MoT'd to July 2012 and stored since then, this well maintained E-Type coupé is described as in generally very good condition and offered with Swansea V5 document.
