1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Coupé

From its launch in 1961 to the end of its production in 1975, the Jaguar E-Type went from design revelation to motoring icon in a generation. Based on Jaguar’s three time Le Mans winning D-Type and known internationally for its beautiful sleek lines and a top speed of 150mph, this revolutionary car had three significant series changes during its 14 year build span. Each model enjoyed subtle changes which included chassis length, headlight style and switchgear but all retained the famous Jaguar DNA instilled by the company’s founder Sir William Lyons.
This original UK supplied right hand drive example was built on 2nd March 1970 and delivered to Henlys Ltd. Salisbury, the first owner a Mr C D Barrett of Aintree. Having had six former keepers, the car had significant mechanical restoration work and some body repairs between 2001 and 2002 by Martin Robey Ltd. Originally a manual car it has been professionally converted to automatic transmission with the use of a modern Jaguar ‘J’ gate automatic gearbox from a Jaguar XJ40.Currently showing 12,835 miles on the odometer the car is supplied with a large history file with many bills for work and new parts as well as MoTs that go back to 1982. Presented in good driving order the E-Type in its current automatic specification makes for a great touring car.
