Few miles since comprehensive independent valuation
Significant ongoing maintenance investment
Series 2 car with desirable conversion to Series 1 rear lights
The E-Type OTS convertible evolved from a small, lightweight car that Jaguar planned to race at Le Mans. That it became one of the most desirable cars of the 1960s and a motoring icon was never part of the original plan.
The short-lived Series 2 added luxury and was the last version to carry the original shape before the Series 3 arrived in 1971.
This 1969 E-Type is one of the first 1,000 LHD OTS Series 2 models and is classically finished in red over black. A very usable example with excellent bodywork, it has been modified to incorporate the smaller rear lights of the earlier cars. It has covered few miles since a comprehensive independent assessment and valuation that is helpfully provided in the photographs.
