1970 Jaguar E-Type series II 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe


This fine example. A time capsule that has had a pampered life, never needing a restoration, shouting it's correctness and originality in every way, as when it crossed the pond from Coventry, England. Has a beautiful repaint in Glasurit #302, performed to high standards in its original coveted color of Regency Red, and of course new base rubber when reassembled. An accident free example, and the only minor rust resides in the battery tray. Beautiful fit and finish with excellent gaps. This gem is an absolute dream to drive.No unexplainable phantom rattles or noises. No smoking upon starts . Starts immediately with a quick turn of the key. Carbs are tweaked in perfectly...Idles, accelerates and effortlessly glides through its power bands, resonating the infamous XKE throaty tones. Transmission is equally as impressive. Bright work is very acceptable. Glass is all Triplex, original and nice. The upholstery is simple stellar for it's age...only adding majestically to it's heritage. No cracks in the seats and the dash is near flawless.Passed New York State inspection June 2017.We all know how worn out the word patina has become, but I can not help myself...and that wonderful vintage Jaguar (no smoker) smell. It will need very little TLC. AC will need a service "if needed or wanted" and a spring inspection and service. Steering is extremely tight and responsive . Unequivocally a blue chip investment, as Fixed Heads coupes are set to skyrocket. Not often do you come across a find such as this. As an industry standard quote, "a car is factory original only once in it's life".
