1970 Jaguar E-Type
Your search is over. Up for auction is a 1970 Jaguar E-Type series II 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe. This fine example, s a matching number automobile. A timecapsule that has had a pampered life, ever needing a restoration, houting it's correctness and originality in every way, s when it crossed the pond from Coventry, ngland. The onlycharacter trait not original to the car is a beautiful repaint inGlasurit #302, erformed to the highest standards in its original coveted color of Regency Red, nd of course new base rubber when reassembled. An accident free example, o filler, nd the onlydiscerningrust resides in the battery tray. Beautiful fit and finish with perfect gaps. This gem is anabsolutedream to drive. Nounexplainablephantom rattles ornoises. Starts immediately with a quick turn of the key. No smoking upon starts, t anidle, ny RPM...nor any consumption of oil. SU carbs aretweakedin perfectly...Idles, ccelerates andeffortlesslyglides through its power bands, esonating the infamousXKE throaty tones. Transmission isequallyas impressive. All gauges amazingly work (even the clock keeps perfect time). No Lucas "Prince of Darkness" curse here. Bright work is very acceptable. Wire wheels exceptional. Glass is all Triplex, riginal and nice. Theupholsteryis simply stellarfor it's age...only addingmajestically to it's heritage. No cracks in the seats and the dash is near flawless. We all know how worn out the word patina has become, ut I can not help myself...and that wonderful vintage Jaguar (no smoker) smell. It will need very little TLC. The only service I would perform in the near future, s charge the AC, if needed or wanted", nd a fresh set of shocks, they still preform well as we speak). Steering isextremely tight and responsive. Recent battery and tune. Original tool kit and owners manual. Unequivocallya blue chip investment, s Fixed Heads have skyrocketed. 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". Will be happy to help facilitate shipping. P.S.
