Originally registered on 14th June 1972 this delightful E-Type has been owned by the vendor for the last seven years. He and his wife purchased the car with a view to touring Europe in the car, which they have done successfully, describing their many journeys as very exceedingly enjoyable. Soon after purchasing and knowing the intended use for the Jaguar, the car had extensive work carried out on the mechanics by a marque specialist in Surrey. Electronic ignition was fitted along with a new electronic fuel pump, new brake servo and brake master cylinder. The rear suspension was completely overhauled and the gearbox was rebuilt, at the same time a new clutch was fitted. Perhaps one of the most significant upgrades was changing the differential to a 2. 88/ 1 ratio thus enabling more comfortable cruising at speed. Over £30, 000 has been spent on the car during his tenure-ship resulting in a very nice, exceedingly useable Series III E-Type. The Azure Blue coachwork is in good order as is the contrasting dark blue leather interior. This genuine UK registered right hand drive example is supplied with a good history folder containing lots of invoices and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. One of the best driver’s examples available on the market.
Past MOT's and numerous invoices availble.
