This matching numbers RHD Jaguar E-Type Roadster was first sold by us in 2011 and is a car we now know very well. This structurally excellent, first class driver was manufactured on 8th May 1969 and the original distributor was British Leyland, New York. The E-Type spent forty years in the US before being carefully sourced by one of the UK's leading Harley Davidson retailers who then brought the car into the UK. On arrival in the UK in 2009 the E-Type was taken to Jaguar specialists M&C Wilkinson for a professional RHD steering conversion and extensive refurbishment to include full brake overhaul, rear axle assembly removal, powder coating and rebuild, front suspension overhaul and new stainless steel exhaust system and manifold. Invoices for thousands of pounds worth of work are with the car.
We collected the E-Type from its first UK owner in 2011 and sold the car to a long-term customer who had a collection of four E-Type's. Prior to delivering the car to the Peterborough area, we fitted a brand-new mohair hood and removed the engine in order to fit a new clutch. During its time with its second UK owner, the E-Type has covered just a few hundred miles and further improvements included fitting triple SU carburettors. We sold the car again in 2017 and over a one year period over £15,000 was spent taking it to the next level. The Jaguar was subject of a complete re-trim with beautiful Grey leather and Grey wool carpets. All interior trim items were replaced, the boot compartment re-trimmed and further cosmetic attention included preparing and re-painting the space frame and bulkhead, floor pans and detailing and powder coating of various ancillaries. The differential was removed and rebuilt and upgraded to UK spec so three years on the E-Type returns to us in outstanding condition and at a full UK mechanical spec.
HUM 403G is a particularly strong E-Type with an excellent 4.2 engine holding excellent oil pressure. The car performs incredibly well with impressive performance and the four speed all syncro gearbox is very smooth with no crunching. The clutch is still as new, the brakes pull up and straight and having covered little mileage since a full steering conversion, the steering feels tight and direct. This is an exceptional driver, its ideal for regular use and would be very comfortable for long distance touring. If looking for a top class driving E-Type, this is the car on its driving performance and with its recent paint and trimming work, it presents beautifully. Since the initial work on arrival in the UK such as brand-new brakes and suspension, only 1000 or so miles have been covered so the car is very sharp on the road.
HUM 403G presents very well with its nicely aged Opalescent Green paintwork. The bodywork is exceptionally good with no rust issues, excellent panel gaps and a structurally superb underbody. The chrome work presents well, the hood still looks new and the chrome wires are in good order. This is an excellent value, perfectly usable matching numbers E-Type and genuinely, they don't all drive this well, this really is a very special car that just feels absolutely righ
