1970 Jaguar E-type Series II 2+2
We are pleased to offer this right hand drive Jaguar E-type for sale. It is a 1970 Series 2 car with 4.2 XK 6-cylinder engine and 4 speed manual gearbox.
The Series 2 E-type has not yet been able to equal the prices of the Series 1 cars, but the S2 driving experience is in no way inferior. The triple carb 4.2 litre straight six engine is very powerful and the handling is excellent. The main differences are cosmetic with the S1 having covered headlights, with side lights and indicator lights below the bumper both front and rear. The S2 was affected by US regulations which brought about the styling detail changes. More practical changes included a larger mouth to the bonnet to aid cooling along with twin cooling fans. In total just 5326 of the 4 seater 2+2 Series II cars were produced.
The Jaguar E-type we are selling here had spent a long period of its life in Europe where it had a full restoration carried out, including the engine. The work has held up well and the car is very nice looking both inside and out, as per the images below. There are a lot of photographs of the various restoration stages. Underneath the car is solid, and rust free. This E-type also benefits from a Webasto style sunroof which folds neatly back.
The driving experience of this particular car is excellent. The engine is smooth, responsive and pulls very strongly through all the gears. It is probably the best driving E-type we have had. It is simply superb.
This S2 E-type will be supplied with MOT, UK registration plates and V5. A Heritage Cerificate has been applied for too. At the moment it has the speedo in KMH which will be replaced with an MPH version.
We recommend a visit and test drive. We think it extremely good value for money, and although it is not concours, it will not be put to shame at any show or club meet.
The car is supplied with a 3 month engine and gearbox failure warranty, and part-exchange for another classic will be considered.
