1970 Jaguar E-TypeYou are bidding on a mint condition, 970 Jaguar E-Type 2+2 Coupe. First introduced in 1961, he E-Type was described by Enzo Ferrari as "The prettiest car of all time". The E-Type is a definitive icon of 1960s motoring along such classics as the Ferrari 250 and the Corvette Stingray. This E-Type is a later Series II model, eaturing a 4.2L straight six engine mated to a four speed manual gearbox for sporty driving characteristics.
This car was imported from Long Island, Y to Montreal, anada by myself personally. I have owned it for the past 8 years and in that time it was always properly stored in a heated garage during the cold winter months. This car is not a "garage queen", t is ready to drive, ust turn the key and go. The car turns heads and receives attention wherever it goes.
ExteriorThe exterior of this E-Type is in excelled condition for its age. All chrome trim pieces are in place and do not show any signs of rust. It features North American-spec wrap around chrome bumpers front and rear. There are small scratches in the paint on one side of the hood, hey are not noticeable unless closely looked at. Barring these blemishes, he paint can be described as "very good". This car retains the correct uncovered headlamps, hich were characteristic of Series II cars. The wire-mesh chrome rims are in great condition, ith no signs of curb rash.
InteriorThis car has the original leather seats which were installed at the factory. The leather does exhibit some cracking (see photos).Allswitch gearand dials are original and they are all functional. I replaced the radio with a modern single-DIN head unit. The headliner was professionallyreupholstered last year.Additional work was done to strengthen the driver's and passenger's side floorboards.
EngineThis E-Type starts every time and drives exceptionally for a car of its vintage. The car is very agile, eaturing four wheel disk brakes and independent suspension. The four-speed transmission engages every gear smoothly. The twin exhaust tips provide a sporty sound without being overpowering at cruising speed. The engine runs strong and pulls in any gear.
Several mechanical upgrades were done, ncluding:
- Brake master cylinder replaced
- Radiator hoses replaced
- Upgraded electric fan installed
- Clutch master and slave
- Rear brakes
- Rebuilt alternator
- New Battery
The car is listed as-is, ith no warranty. All descriptions accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Flexible with shipping arrangements, nternational buyers welcome.
I reserve the right to end the auction early without warning.
