Car now offered at:
1970 Jaguar E-type Series 2 Roadster
We are so very proud to offer this very special Jaguar E-type Roadster. This car was built on March 25 of 1970 and originally dispatched on April 7th of 1970. It was meticulously cared for by three owners since new.
• We purchased this car from the same meticulous owner who had this car since 1984.
• Previously restored but recently refreshed both mechanically and cosmetically.
• Matching numbers as per Jaguar Heritage Certificate.
• Original color combination of Willow Green with Suede Green leather interior.
• It was a one time Jaguar Concours winner.
• Concour awards from late 1980s and early 1990s.
• Paperwork going back to the mid 1980s.
• The previous owner spent about over $15,000 in work in 2018 as detailed in the pictured invoices. This included the head
being rebuilt. About 300 miles have been placed on the car since.
• We spent close to $10,000 going through the car and an additional refreshing. This included refreshing the paint.
• Hot compression tested and the results were 160 to 165 on all 6 cylinders.
• New chrome wire wheels and Michelin 205 Defender tires installed.
• This car will be listed on Bring a Trailer auctions in early December.

Ebay item 2/25/20
Current bid: $35,200 11 bids 5 days left in auction no reserve, seller josepalban_0, car now said to be in Lancaster, Kentucky, 86k miles.
CAUTION, see above auction results, same photos used for this auction with license plate covered.
This 1970 Jaguar XKE is a Series II open two-seater that was sold new in the US finished in Willow Green over Suede Green.
It retains its original 4.2-liter inline-six, which is paired with a four-speed manual gearbox.
Four new Michelin tires and a new stainless exhaust system were installed.
Will come with records dating back to the 1980s, manuals, a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, and a clean title.Finished from the factory in Willow Green, the car received a partial exterior repaint to rectify a number of chips and flaws in the finish. Reassembly included new front bumper seals, as well as a replacement left front turn signal and reverse light housings. The disc brake system received a new master cylinder and servo, along with new hoses and a fluid flush. Four new 205/70-series Michelin Defender tires were installed on the 15″ chrome wire wheels.
The left-hand-drive cabin is trimmed in Suede Green upholstery with matching carpets. The latter were replaced, and a new handbrake ratchet was also fitted.
A new Moto-Lita 15″ wood-rimmed wheel fronts a set of factory Smiths gauges, and 86k miles are shown on the five-digit odometer. The speedometer was repaired in 2018, and the tachometer glass was removed for cleaning and reinstalled.
The 4.2-liter XK inline-six is equipped with dual Stromberg carburetors and was factory-rated for 246 horsepower in US-market specification. A top-end rebuild, including new head studs, intake and exhaust valves, and cam bearings, was performed in 2018. A recent compression test revealed between 160 and 165 psi in all six cylinders. The carburetors were rebuilt, and the fluids were also changed.
A tool kit, jack, chrome spare, and soft-face mallet reside in the trunk.
You can tell, had a pampered life and no sign of abuse any where, in it’s entire life. The interior/exterior all original factory and in perfect shape, no rips or tears anywhere! Hard to believe, so you need to see it in person to appreciate.
