The first significant up-grade of Jaguar's sensational E-Type sports car occurred in October 1964 with the launch of a 4.2-litre version, which featured an all-synchromesh gearbox and a host of other improvements as well as the bigger, torquier engine. The E-Type's top speed of around 150mph remained unchanged, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved acceleration. Like its 3.8-litre forbear, the 4.2-litre E-Type was built in roadster and coupé forms, and in 1966 was joined by an additional 'family friendly' 2+2 coupé variant on a longer wheelbase. With the 2+2's increased length and additional rear seats came greater headroom, more luggage space, improved heating/ventilation and optional automatic transmission.
This stunning E-Type comes to us in excellent condition with a well documented history file showing annual services and an eye watering amount spent on both the restoration and maintenance.
The thick binder is full of invoices and pictures showing the true attention to detail taken to restore this E-Type. The end result was truly remarkable, the bodywork and chassis being finished in Dark Green Metallic, which still holds a beautiful sheen and is complimented by the shining chromework.
At some point recently the engine was also fully stripped and rebuilt, and has the stunning interior has been restored to an exceptionally high standard, and the very fact that this E-Type has covered covered a mere 66668 Miles
The works undertaken through his restoration is impressive; yet painful when you tally it all up, however this has resulted in a beautiful driving E-Type
