Jaguar E-Type Series 2 FHC

Sold
1969 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 4.2 FHC

LHD, Rebuilt Engine, Rebuilt Gearbox, Matching numbers, Original paperwork, Zero rust!

Imported to the UK from the USA by a Jaguar enthusiast in 2015. This handsome example of the 4.2L fixed head coupe has since benefitted from a series of renovation work and selected updates to get the car into the superb shape it is in now. The heritage certificate confirms the car is matching numbers and was dispatched to the US in Sept 1969. Amazingly we have the original bill of sale on file from Capitol Motors Inc, Maryland & also the original warranty details and first service records. The original owner was in the US Navy and served in Vietnam where he sadly lost his life. His parents, in their grief put his car into storage where it stayed for 28 years! A letter is on file from the second owner who purchased the car from the family in 1997 and spend the next 18 years working on and enjoying the car, including changing the colour from Silver to Red. So in the last 52 years this E Type has had just 3 owners! The last of which has spent many many hours working on the car. The car now drives superbly with everything working correctly and performing as it should. Invoices on file for all new parts fitted and many photos of work being carried out available. The mileage of 46,000 is believed to be genuine although not verified. The car has no rust anywhere and is completely solid in all the usual trouble areas. If you are looking for a perfectly usable series 2, which has had all the work already done, this is it. Great value and must only go one way from here.
