1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 2+2

This original UK RHD E-Type has just arrived with us and is now under evaluation. Since 2008, this first class driving car has had in the region of £15,000 spent with a UK Jaguar Specialist. The E-Type is an absolute delight to drive with a perfect road holding, excellent brakes and a superb sounding and performing engine. AMX 90H has covered around 2000 miles in the last two years and has benefited tremendously from all the recent work. This E-Type makes a fabulous long distance tourer and is a real pleasure to drive.

The main areas of improvement over the past two years are the rear axle assembly and suspension, front suspension and steering, braking system, exhaust system and electrical and ancillaries work. Over 30 hours of work went into the rear axle and suspension alone. This obviously included the removal and re-fit of the axle assembly, new drive shaft universal joints, new diff output shaft seals, new pinion oil seal, renewed wheels bearings, new shock absorbers, removal of propshaft and replaced universal joints, renewing wishbone inner and outer fulcrum bearings and fitting splined hubs for wire wheel conversion. On the front suspension and steering, top wishbone bushes at both sides were replaced, bottom ball joints renewed, new steering rack fitted, Koni shock absorbers fitted, front splined hubs fitted and various adjustments such as tracking and camber made. 

Further to new rear discs and pads in 2005, the E-Type benefited from renewed front and rear brake hoses, new brake pipes, renewed vacuum tank and re-conditioned rear callipers.  The old exhaust system and manifold was removed and replaced with a stainless steel system. The water pump was reconditioned, cam cover gaskets replaced, renewed sump oil transfer hose, new engine mountings, gearbox rear mountings and stabiliser mounting. Electrical and further ancillary work included a new heater fan motor, reconditioned wiper motor, new inertia reel seat belts and the repair of the heated rear screen. All invoices for parts and labour are with the vehicles history file.

With this recent expenditure, a lovely original upholstery suggesting the recorded mileage of 85000 is correct, this fabulous looking and driving E-Type riding on chrome wire wheels is a great buy,
