Footnotes

  • The first significant up-grade of Jaguar's sensational E-Type sports car occurred in October 1964 with the launch of the 4.2-litre version. Along with the bigger, torquier engine came a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear, and a superior Lockheed brake servo. Apart from '4.2' badging, the car's external appearance was unchanged, but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements. These mainly concerned the cooling and electrical systems, the latter gaining an alternator and adopting the industry standard negative ground, while the interior boasted a matt black dashboard and improved seating arrangements. The top speed of around 150mph remained unchanged, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved acceleration. Like its 3.8-litre forbear, the 4.2-litre E-Type was built in roadster and coupé forms, and in 1966 gained an additional 2+2 coupé variant on a 9" longer wheelbase.

    In 1968 all three versions of the E-Type underwent major revision to comply with US safety and emissions legislation, emerging in 'Series 2' guise minus the original's distinctive headlight covers. In addition, enlarged side and rear lights were adopted while a thickened front bumper centre section bridged a larger radiator intake. Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles.

    This left-hand drive Series 2 E-Type Coupé was delivered in the USA via Irv Pollock in Toledo, Ohio and sold new on 22nd December 1969 to one James Noble in the same city. In November 1972 Mr Noble sold the Jaguar to Paul R Dukes Sr of the Ohio Citizens' Trust (presumably a dealer) who sold it that same month to the third keeper, Stephen E Schilt of Toledo. Mr Schilt kept the E-Type until earlier this year when it was purchased by the current vendor and imported into the UK. Mr Schilt had used the car up to approximately 1995 before laying it up in his garage, from whence it would occasionally emerge to be driven around the block. Apparently original and un-restored, it requires new sills, floor pans and wheelarch repairs. A change in the vendor's personal circumstances has prevented him from carrying out the planned restoration, and so this most worthwhile project is now offered for sale. Sold strictly was viewed, the car comes with an Ohio title, owner's manual, service record, dealers list, warranty card, maintenance chart and numerous bills.
