ENGINE AND GEARBOX
This Series I E-type OTS has the silken Jaguar 4.2 litre straight six engine, fed by triple carbs. The car starts instantly and settles to a smooth burble. Two years ago the engine, transmission, engine bay and suspension is said to have been refreshed by the previous owner. The 4-speed manual gearbox is slick and smooth and the car pulls strongly in every gear. Its driving experience is pure E-type with handling, roadholding and braking all up to a high standard. Images of the engine bay, and detailing underneath the car add to the impression of quality, and act as further proof of the money spent on this car over the years.
The interior remains in very nice condition. At the time of the restoration the tan interior was fully refitted, and the car benefits from a new set of tan carpets. The hood is in excellent condition, and all the instruments and controls work.
This beautiful car was the subject of a full restoration in Canada approximately 15 years ago, carried out for its Doctor owner, taking nearly 12 months, with a full photographic record to back up. The Imperial Maroon is one of the best E-type colours. New chrome spoke wire wheels have also been fitted. Images of the engine bay, and detailing underneath the car add to the impression of quality.
This is a North American car from new and has only been in the UK a very short time. All taxes are paid, and the car currently awaits MOT and UK registration plates. Its Doctor owner in NA spent an immense amount of money in having the car professionally restored, and the photographic record is available with the car.
Everything about this car confirms that a lot of money has been spent on the vehicle, both restoring it, and maintaining it in its current condition. We have no hesitation in recommending this car as a fine example of the marque, and when registered for UK roads will be offered with an extendable warranty.
