This beautifully original series one Jaguar E Type originally sold as a left hand drive car in California. The car has been professionally converted to right hand drive by CCCR earlier this year using the better quality components supplied by SC parts. The conversion has been fully documented with a photographic record. I speak from experience to say that the current owner of the vehicle is a very experienced classic car owner with a considerable collection and hard to meet exacting standards and is reluctantly selling this car due to difficult circumstances. The car since being in the UK has also prior to current owners purchase had seven thousand pounds worth of work carried out on it by Winspeed.
The car is of what may be a unique colour combination for a series one of Beige exterior and Tan interior, I have never seen another and it certainly cuts a striking pose against all the usual greens and reds that are the norm. The car starts easily and idles smoothly from cold and without smoke Since we have had the car at our workshops its never missed a beat. It pulls strongly in every gear and the gear box is joy to use being positive and with out fault again from cold.
As with any good E Type this car really is quick even by today's standards and the handling and braking inspire confidence to push on but on a beautiful sunny day in the Cotswolds with the roof down I find you just want to cruise along enjoying the countryside save the odd squirt of acceleration now and again listening to the glorious XK power unit. The car comes with a fresh set of correct period chrome wire wheels and new tyres.
There are no signs of accident damage and the interior is damage free save for the odd wear mark. This is not a freshly restored example and all the better for it, even the hood appears original with the original manufacturer pressing into the rear screen, little details like this are missing from any restored E Type of any value regardless how much! That's what I like most about this car although the odd sign of wear or age is visible its very original and there are very few out there that can boast that now. The mileage appears genuine although cannot be verified but when looking over the car it would not be in the condition its in if the mileage was high or if it had a hard life. A age related plate has been assigned to the car by the DVLA. Please call for further information
