This stunning Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 FHC was manufactured on the 20th May 1970 and left the factory finished in Cream with Red leather. The original distributor was Parkers of Bolton and the car was supplied new by Henlys in Oldham to a local lady. This genuine UK car supplied car is still today in its original colours and specification. UK specification E-Types are in high demand at present and high quality, usable examples like this are becoming increasingly difficult to buy. This particular car is the 905th Series II Coupe off the production line and is therefore one of the later surviving Series II Coupe's. To further enhance the car we can confirm it does have matching numbers and is totally correct throughout.
This car presents incredibly well with beautiful Cream paintwork, quite superb panel fit and lovely straight panels. The body is exceptional, as is the underside of the vehicle. The engine bay presents superbly with a nicely detailed engine, space frame and ancillaries. The interior is truly beautiful with gorgeous Red leather with a lovely original feel. The car records a mileage of 76000 with MOT's dating back to 1995 when the car had 70872 miles. Everything about the car suggests this could be genuine as it has an honest, genuine look to it and of course retains so many features such as the original Greater Manchester registration mark, original colours, and of course original leather seats that suggest this is a low mileage car.
On the road the car is impressive. It starts instantly, has a fabulous stainless steel exhaust note and the engine is outstanding. It sounds, performs and runs superbly, it holds excellent oil pressure and the car is quick, responsive and a fabulous driving experience. The four speed manual gearbox is effortless to use, its smooth, quiet and delightful. The brakes are very sharp, it handles incredibly well and holds the road nicely. The E-Type comes with a comprehensive history file detailing thousands of pounds worth of expenditure and up keep.
