Beautiful Jaguar E Type series 1 1967 4.2 roadster. This is the one to own. The 4.2 with better cooling, more comfortable seats, better brakes and a full synchromesh gearbox. Only 864 RHD 4.2 4.2 roadsters were made and this is no 806.
I have owned this E Type for nearly six years and during that time have improved the car considerably by investing about £25,000 in restoration costs, replacement of parts and improvements to the running and reliability. There are photos and invoices to all the work that has been done and to the yearly servicing. This is a private sale and I am able to give you the history of the car for many years.
This is an original UK RHD series 1 roadster, manufactured on 24 April 1967, with its heritage certificate. It has had a huge amount of money spent on her over the years and especially over the past six. It is in fabulous condition, greatly admired by all who see her and very close to concours standard. There is a huge pile of receipts, photos, invoices, tax discs, and MOT's that comes with the car dating back many years. The panel fit and gaps are excellent and the paintwork is faultless. Engine, gearbox and drivetrain are also in excellent condition. This is a very reliable car which always starts first time and has been used for journeys to France and Belgium.
In 1991 a complete nut and bolt restoration was started, which finished in 1995 and the car has covered only 15,000 miles since the restoration was finished. This restoration has been completely refreshed from 2010 to 2015 as below.

Oct 2013 CFS Motors Coventry - re-build of power lock diff, strip and re-build of rear suspension, new hub bearings and new rear callipers, £1,983.
2013 to 2015 - Complete overhaul of steering including reconditioning of the original rack, new heavy duty rack mounts, new column u/j's and bushes. Replacement of brake components including master and slave cylinders, hoses and servo. New battery.

The car is always kept in a temperature controlled garage, comes with an MOT until October 2016 and is also tax free. The personal number plate is not included in the sale. £129,000.
