There are few cars currently offered for sale that can boast such a comprehensive, well documented, and authenticated life history. The entirety of which will be handed over to the purchaser on successful completion of the sale.

INTERIOR

The leather of the seats is in incredibly good condition despite its age. All seat seams and piping are in good order and there is no loss of resilience in the underlying foam formers. There is one small break in the leather of the passenger seat upright, other than that the seat leather is in top class and unblemished condition. The remainder of the interior trim is in good order with only minor items having been replaced over the years, however the vast majority of trim, is as fitted, when it left the factory. A non-standard radio-CD player has been fitted at some point and is functional.

The original steering wheel had suffered age deterioration and has been recently replaced with a period-correct, albeit slightly thicker hand-crafted steering wheel. The original wheel will come with the car.

All gauges are in situ and functional, except for the clock, the failure of which has not been investigated. The oil pressure gauge is non-standard having at some time been substituted for the original Smiths unit, it functions well and registers a perfect operating pressure.

All switches are functional with the obvious exception of the heated rear screen switch as this option is not fitted to the car.

Spinner removal tool, jack and hammer are present with the car.

EXTERIOR

The body of the E-Type is very well presented, having benefited from a full respray sometime before June 2010, then changing the colour from its original Signal Red to Opalescent Dark Blue. The quality of the work is such that even at several years down the line, it still look great. NOW REDUCED IN PRICE to £62, 000

HISTORY

The original factory records show that the car was manufactured on 16th February 1970, and was dispatched to the British Leyland New York – USA Distributorship on the 13th of March in that year.

The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirms the numbers of the car at the time of manufacture, all of which bear out with the vehicle’s identification plate. The documented history of the car shows that EXZ 558 was initially owned by a gentleman from Colorado Springs, who put only 881miles on the car during its first 17years of life. He then sold it on to an agent who traded in Eaglewood Colorado. The car was then sold on to a Father and Son from Idaho Falls, Idaho. Between them they owned the car for the next 29 years, covering an additional 12, 109miles in their ownership. The transfers between these parties are corroborated and validated by Official State Documentation issued at the time of transfer. The final document to hand before the car left the USA 15th July 2016. Further verification of mileage comes by way of a written affidavit countersigned by the Public Notary and various repair and maintenance invoices. After arriving in the UK the car was eventually purchased by the current owner.

Documented mileage increments are as follows:-

16/ 02/ 1970 0miles
24/ 01/ 1987  881miles
14/ 09/ 1988 4, 159miles
02/ 03/ 1989 4, 819miles
17/ 03/ 1989  5, 234miles
04/ 04/ 1995 10, 925miles
20/ 07/ 2016 12, 990miles
26/ 06/ 2017 13, 000miles
01/ 10/ 2020 13, 043miles
Current   13, 806miles

Thus averaging approx. 254miles each year of its life.

The car was MOT’d, with no noted advisories, on 26th June 2017 after its arrival into the UK. Now officially classed as an exempt historic vehicle EXZ 558 will therefore not be required to be MOT’d again in the future.

As a consequence of the degree of infrequent use EXZ 558 has been subjected to, it was considered prudent to recommission the engine and in November 2019 a comprehensive recommissioning programme was carried out at a cost of £3, 000. As with other aspects of the car’s history this work is fully recorded in the comprehensive document file.

After the exchange of much correspondence the car was successfully registered with the DVLA on the 18th December 2019 with the retained private registration number EXZ 558, which remains with the car.


PAPERWORK

All import documentation, VAT, Custom & Excise, HMRC and DVLC documents are in order and will be included within the Jaguar’s comprehensive history file, along with the UK issued V5C registration document. Some certificates continue to be held by DVLA Swansea however photocopies of these documents were taken before being lodged with that department.

The file of paperwork to go with the car includes assorted detailed receipts and invoices for parts and work over 5 decades primarily in the USA and most recently the recommissioning work and part replacement here in the UK.
