Description

 

This 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Coupe offered here at Autostorico is finished in Cream with Blue stripes.is built to ‘fast road/track specification’

It would appeal to someone who wants a very stable, safe and fast road car which is also suitable for track days.

It is extremely well sorted and equipped and is one of the best roadholding E Types we have driven. The engine which has a recent overhaul and has triple weber carburettors fitted This makes the engine very smooth and it pulls beautifully.

Supplied new by Jaguar Cars of New York and registered on 26th October 1970, this example spent most of its life in America. Upon returning to the United Kingdom in 2011 the new owner decided to convert the car to RHD, passing to its current owner a keen historic motorsport enthusiast in 2017. During his ownership a significant amount of work has been carried out in addition to the complete engine overhaul. This includes; differential rebuilt to 3.31, fuel system overhaul with twin facet pumps, fitting bespoke exhaust system, alloy radiator and suspension overhaul including adjustable shocks. Other notable features include; race seats with TRS harnesses, fire extinguisher, complete roll cage and battery cut off switch. There is little more to be done on the car.

Offered for sale with a current V5 registration document and a history file containing numerous invoices including a heritage certificate.

Some history on the iconic E type now being celebrated in its 60th year.

The E-Type Jaguar debuted at the 1961 Geneva Motorshow as a replacement for the hugely successful Jaguar XK150. The new E-Type was nothing short of a revelation, with its heady blend of supercar performance, breath-taking styling and low price tag, the newcomer left its rivals reeling and customers desperate to own one. Designed by William Lyons and Malcolm Sayer, the E-Type was launched in both fixed head coupe and roadster form with design inspiration taken from the Le-Mans winning D-Type sports racer. Built around a steel monocoque chassis with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, all-round independent suspension using coil springs and dampers to the rear with torsion bars and wishbones to the front. Brakes were Dunlop discs all round, mounted inboard to the rear alongside the differential to reduce un-sprung weight. Powered by Jaguar’s XK straight six engine, the E-Type offered breath taking performance to rival both Ferrari and Aston Martin.

The first significant up-grade occurred in October 1964 with the launch of the 4.2-litre version. Along with the bigger, torquier engine came a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear, and a superior Lockheed brake servo. Apart from ‘4.2’ badging, the car’s external appearance was unchanged but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements, chiefly to the electrical, cooling systems and to the seating arrangements.

Jaguar introduced the Series II E-Type in1968, which incorporated a number of design changes including the most distinctive being the absence of glass headlight covers. Other external changes included wrap around front and rear bumpers and re-positioning of the front indicators and rear tail lights. The interior changes included the ignition switch being moved to the steering column and the metal toggle switches being replaced by plastic rocker switches.
