ENGINE AND GEARBOX
This Series I Jaguar E-type 2+2 has the silken 4.2 litre straight six engine, fed by triple carburetors. The famous XK twin cam Jaguar six starts immediately and pulls strongly throughout the rev range.The car starts instantly, both cold and hot and runs good oil pressure. The 4-speed manual gearbox is slick and smooth in every ratio and the car pulls strongly in every gear. This E-types driving experience is exhilarating with handling, roadholding and braking all up to a similarly high standard.
Open the door and breathe in and enjoy the original Jaguar type patina! It is very rare to find an original E-type interior in this condition. The seats are free from splits or tears, and the carpet, door linings and headlining are in good condition. Its requires no work for the E-type owners who like to enjoy their classic.
The bodywork is in good original condition, free from any major flaws or damage. The paint colour is metallic Golden Sand and is perfectly set off by the excellent chrome spoked wheels. This is an unrestored car, so whilst it is possible that it was resprayed earlier in its life, it should be remembered that it is now over 50 years old. It does have the benefit of new door and body rubber seals. The underside is in good sound condition, and there is evidence of the front jacking points being strengthed – a good worthwhile upgrade
This is a North American E-type but still has the triple carbs as per the UK models. It was selected by our NA team, and was said to have been the subject of quality work on its engine, gearbox and suspension over the years. The claims made about the car are confirmed on examination of its overall condition.
The photographs of this car will shortly be updated to show the UK registration. Driving, handling and roadholding are excellent, making this a very easy car to quickly cover ground in. We have no hesitation in recommending this car.
