About this Jaguar E-Type Series 2 4.2 FHC

First registered in January 1970 by Jaguar Cars New York this very smart E-Type Series 2 Fixed Head Coupe spent its life in the dry California Climate, it was repatriated late in 2014 and has been in the hands of one private UK owner since then. The E-Type Series 2 cars introduced a number of design and mechanical changes where they designed out both safety issues for American legislation and problematical mechanical areas, most notably the lighting, the cooling, the switching plus the steering column was made collapsible and headrests were added. A steeper-raked windshield on 2+2 models brought more glass and the ability to take passengers. A glove-box door was now fitted on all models, together with perforated leather upholstery and newly available power steering. Brakes were new Girling disc brakes with three-piston calipers at the front and two-piston versions at the rear. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a stronger, "ribbed" variety. This lefthand drive, 4.2 litre Series II coup presented in British Racing Green with black leather was an original California car imported to Ireland before undergoing a major overhaul at a considerable cost to this collector. Works have included a near nut and bolt restoration including new wiring loom, reconditioned radiator, clutch assembly, steering rack, partial re-trimmed interior and dash, bare metal re-spray and a full engine rebuild including triple Weber carburettors and stainless manifolds. The list of work undertaken goes on and on with the car more recently was sent to Butlin & Sons of Swadlincote, a renowned E-Type and classic specialist to complete the restoration and sign the car off for the owner. The car was subsequently purchased by ourselves, a full inspection carried out and then supplied to Mr Rogers in late 2014. With such little subsequent use over the next few years, Mr Rogers has decided to sell and approached us as the supplying Dealer. More than happy to take the car on, we have it here for you today, stunning in Racing Green and ready to be converted to RHD if you so wish at an additional £5000 plus VAT. A very competitively priced FHC to be enjoyed.
