1968 Jaguar E-Type S1.5 Roadster For Restoration
LHD, 4.2, Manual, British Racing Green with Tan interior, Full matching numbers car
Direct from California we are pleased to offer this excellent example of a very straight & rust free series 1.5 roadster for restoration. The car is an original matching numbers, LHD, manual, manufactured & registered in Coventry 26th April 1968. Supplied in British racing green with tan interior & black soft top. Overall this E Type is in great shape, 100% complete apart from the exhaust, with just the smallest area of rust on the nearside rear quarter where the sill meets the wing & also a small, easy to repair hole in the boot floor. Other than these small issues the car is absolutely rock solid & rot free. The original body panels, floors & chassis are all in very good condition. The matching engine starts and runs. The hood frame is present and working although the material has deteriorated. The chrome trim is all present & usable as are the original chrome wire wheels. The windscreen is perfect with no cracks and the dash is also usable with no splits. The heritage certificate is present confirming matching chassis, engine, body, & gearbox. It also confirms that this particular car was sold for personal export to a Mr B Costin, meaning that we have the original Coventry works registration number which will go back onto the car when its registered rather than a re-issue number. This ads further provenance to this rare car & with solid, original cars like this becoming increasingly hard to find this represents a fantastic opportunity to start your restoration from a very solid base, rather than spending months in the body shop cutting out & repairing rotten panels etc. The car is here in the UK, available now with all taxes paid & is registered on the NOVA system with US Title present.
