1970 JAGUAR E TYPE SERIES 2 - 4.2 LITRE FHC - 5,837 MILES SHOWING
A truly magnificent example of undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cars ever made, this E Type Coupe presents in Grey Metallic paintwork, with complimentary claret coloured leather interior trim.
Subject to one of the most comprehensive restorations possible, we hold countless books, manuals, photos and receipts covering it's journey.
We believe from it's present owner, that it started life in the UK as a LHD version, delivered to its first owner, Capt. Struthers on the 23rd of March 1970 at the US Officers Mess Heher Werl 476 Germany, he then returned to the States with the car, when his basing had finished. We hold the original warranty card and a Heritage Certificate attesting to this ownership.
This US owner apparently stored the car for some 24 years, before it was sold to the buyer in Australia.
The car eventually came to Australia and NSW in particular, where the restoration took place. We hold many receipts from Jaguar specialists in NSW covering the restoration process. Included in the comprehensive restoration was an engine rebuild, balanced and blue printed.
The car was eventually sold to its present South Australian owner.
Servicing and a major gearbox overhaul have been completed recently by one of Adelaide's leading Jaguar specialists, Classic and Sportscar Boutique of Norwood. The present owner has supplied a large file of photos showing the restoration process.
Powered by the famous XK 4.2 Litre engine, it produced when new 177Kw and 357Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via a 4 speed manual gearbox. Performance was sensational when first released and still very respectable today at 0-100kph in just under 7 secs and a top speed near 150mph (240kph).
In the 60's when first released, this was a super car with super car looks and it still wears those tags with pride.
Currently enjoying Historic registration in SA, it would be eligible for similar schemes in other states, making on road costs minimal.
Available to admire on our state of the art showroom floor in Adelaide.
