1968 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Auto

This very presentable E-Type was sold new in 1968 by Jaguar Cars New York. The car was despatched on the 4th July 1968 and remained in the U.S.A until the early 1990's. We can see from previous MOT certificates that the car has covered around 20,000 miles in the UK and the recorded mileage is now less than 75,000. Although we cannot guarantee the mileage, the interior is in excellent order, particualry both front and rear seats which may be original. Immediately noticeble on this E-Type is the superb fitting of the doors, the body is particuarly good and the door fit and alignment is excellent.

The E-Type has spent a number of years in storage but since 2005 has had in the region of £7000-£8000 spent. The car has been treated to a rear end overhaul including new UJ's to drive shafts, bearings, seals and shims. The car has had an upgraded starter motor fitted along with new electronic distributor and the highly rated Coopercraft brakes. Chrome wire wheels and tyres are also new. This year the car has also had new fans, engine and gearbox mountins along with various other improvements. The car was fully serviced before the summer and has covered around 1600 miles including a trip to Goodwood and the NEC in November.
