Footnotes

  • Introduced in 3.8-litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and a top speed of 150mph. The first major upgrade occurred in 1965 when the 4.2-litre version arrived boasting a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on 1st gear alongside the bigger, torquier engine. Proposed changes in United States automobile legislation would eventually result in the revised Series II, announced in October 1968, though modifications began to be phased in during 1967. Externally, the Series II 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 a collapsible steering column. Beneath the skin, Ad-West power steering, Girling brake callipers and an up-rated radiator were among the many mechanical improvements made to the Series II.

    This left-hand drive Series II roadster was imported from the USA in 2018 by the vendor. The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate shows that the car was completed in November 1969 and shipped to British Leyland, New York, USA, while the original colour scheme was silver grey with black interior and matching soft-top. As is so often the case with imported cars, little is known of its early history. 69,563 miles at time of importation, the odometer reading had risen to 69,848 miles by the time the car was MoT'd in July 2019.

    There are bills on file from L&L Auto Services Ltd and Lewmark Auto Company totalling c. £5,000 in 2018 for works including carburettor and distributor tuning/timing, new front disks, attention to the bodywork, supplying and fitting new rear bumper trim, new wiring under the steering, adjusting the rear wheel clearance, a new exhaust strap, and new sun visors. Further recent works with Middlesex Re-boring Co Ltd include stripping, degreasing, and part assembling the cylinder head, re-facing the valve seats, and supplying and fitting new inlet valve guides. We are advised that the repaint in dark red was carried out early in 2019, with the interior also having been re-trimmed in cream leather in recent years. The hood is also said to be in very good condition and fits well.

    This beautiful Series II E-Type comes with MoT to July 2020, a V5C registration document, and the aforementioned Heritage Certificate dated June 2018 and sundry bills.
