This beautiful Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 2+2 was supplied new by Angelo's Motor Sales in Trenton, New Jersey. The E-Type was delivered on the 9th February 1969 and we are delighted to have the original passport to service book with stamped warranty card and maintenance information specifically in 1973. During the mid 1970's the E-Type moved to Charlotte, North Carolina and we have maintenance and services invoices throughout the 1980's. The car was then exported from North Carolina to the UK in 1989 and we have the Certificate of Title from the U.S.A.
On arrival in the UK the E-Type was registered and rebuilt at the cost of £22,000 by a County Durham dealership. The bodyshell was stripped to bare metal and painted in Jaguar Carmen Red. Mechanically the E-Type had substantial work which included checking the engine and rebuilding the top end with new valves and guides. The clutch was replaced but the gearbox untouched. Further work included new engine mountings, new steering rack, mountings and track rod ends, anti-roll bar bushes, top and bottom wishbone bushes, front shock absorbers, front flexi brake pipes and brake pads, new brake pipes front to back, new rear subframe mountings, rear anti-roll bar bushes, swinging arm bearings and rear shock absorbers. A new exhaust system was fitted and a re-conditioned alternator, wiper motor and heater motor fitted. The interior was completely re-trimmed to original specification with hide seats. All new door and windscreens seals were replaced and some of the bright work replaced.
During the 1990's the E-Type was in the York area and invoices from the local Jaguar main dealer are with the car showing up keep was done to the highest of standards. In 2000 the Jaguar was sold to a new owner in Scotland and invoices for substantial expenditure are with the car from this period. Since 2008 over £2000 has been spent to include Gaz shock absorbers, a new radiator fan, brake calliper pistons, wheel bearings and gearbox bearings, syncro set and oil seals. According to MOT certificates dating back to 1989, the E-Type has only covered 4500 miles since coming into the UK.
This is a superb opportunity to purchase a fabulous, tight driving E-Type that is perfect for long distance touring. The car has a wonderful feel to it and is particularly quiet with little road noise noticeable. The car handles perfectly and the engine is smooth and powerful with very good oil pressure. The car presents superbly with fabulous upholstery that has very little if any wear. The body is superbly straight with good panel alignment and the paintwork still has a beautiful, deep shine.
This is a beautiful E-Type that is a true delight to drive.
