The Appeal


The E-Type Series 2 has consolidated the many changes introduced to the model over the years, resulting in a more luxurious car. Enthusiasts appreciate these newer cars for the way they drive. It was also the last original design, built for just two years, rarer than earlier or later versions.

Finished in factory Willow Green with beige leather interior, this well-travelled car began life in Nebraska but now resides in France. Maintained by enthusiasts - just look at this series of bumper badges - and in excellent condition, this car with matching numbers looks ready to be enjoyed.

Willow Green is one of the rarer colours for the 2 Series, but as the photographs show, it's a particularly attractive shade for the car and works well with the beige roof and interior. It's also factory correct, as confirmed by the Heritage certificate.

This beautiful car is very solid and extremely presentable, the bar of bumper badges indicating its interesting life and passionate long-term owner. It presents as very original and the accompanying light patina is an essential part of its charm. There are a few signs of use and age on the car, but they are minor, cosmetic and nothing to worry about. Overall, this is a very well cared for car, clearly much loved and perfect to simply enjoy.

The Powertrain

  • 4.2-litre, 245 bhp in-line six-cylinder XK engine
  • Twin SU carburettors
  • 4-speed fully synchronised manual gearbox
  • Matching numbers confirmed by Heritage certificate

With a 4.2-litre XK six-cylinder engine and a four-speed manual gearbox, the short-wheelbase 2 Series OTS is both a fun-to-drive car and an extremely comfortable GT cruiser. The car's Heritage certificate confirms that it is a matching-numbers vehicle, while the extensive collection of very early historical documents attests that it is a much-loved and carefully maintained E-Type.
