Lot 63 at Charterhouse Summer Classic Car Auction at Sherborne Castle, Sherborne on 15th July 2018. Amended catalogue description below. Sold for £73,000.
A 1969 Jaguar E Type Series II Roadster, registration number UKB9H, chassis number 1R1335, engine number 7R6641-9, Old English White, believed 79,000 miles from new. This original home market right hand drive roadster has had six previous owners, prior to our vendor acquiring the Jaguar in 2013. Finished in its original colour scheme of Old English White with a Dark Blue interior and matching weather gear. The bodywork has an excellent body fit and both the paintwork and chrome work are in good condition. The interior shows commensurate wear to substantiate the recorded mileage of 79,000 miles
Since the acquisition of the E Type, our vendor has maintained the Jaguar as necessary to a high standard, with various receipts for work carried out, including an engine rebuild by Extreme Jaguar Restoration (on 10 August 2017 - receipt for £7,605.69), new windscreen, drop glass, refurbishment of rear suspension, new brushes, bearings and full brake overhaul with new shock absorbers all round, steering column, bushes, discs, etc (receipt for £4,411.72). Further works carried out include fitting of electronic ignition, high torque starter motor and fuel pumps. There are further maintenance receipts for general maintenance.
There is an extensive history file containing receipts, past MoT's and general correspondence. The Jaguar also benefits from having an after market hard top. Overall the Jaguar presents very well with an honest patina commensurate with a recorded mileage and is ready to be enjoyed by the next custodian. MoT to March 2019.

Jaguar continued to develop the E-Type throughout its life with the first substantial improvements arriving in 1964. A newly enlarged 4.2-litre XK engine was installed under the bonnet and, although maximum power remained unchanged at 265bhp, torque was usefully increased, improving driveability. Other developments included the introduction of a fully synchronised Moss gearbox and twin SU petrol pumps. The Series ll of 1968 was evolved still further, with an improved cooling system and better Girling brakes and featured several design changes, partly influenced by U.S. design legislation. The most noted exterior features are the open headlights, a larger grille opening, re-positioned and larger front indicators, and rear lights below the bumpers. The 4.2-litre engine now sported 'ribbed' cam-covers, whilst inside there were better seats with head-rests, new switches and a steering-column ignition key position. Greater legroom was also now available for the taller driver.
This lovely example is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive 4.2 series II Roadster from private ownership. It has been the recent beneficiary in 2017 of an engine rebuild, a new windscreen, a complete suspension and brake overhaul (including new dampers), and additional attention for which the total spend exceeded £20,000 with all bills on file. The car is finished in Cream, the last year this colour was used prior to the return of Old English White in 1970. The shut lines are even and the paintwork is generally very good. All the brightwork looks excellent and the chrome wire wheels look virtually new. The black leather seating is gently patinated and it's a 'proper' E-Type interior with a push-button radion and a lovely Moto-Lita wood rim steering wheel. The Hood and Tonneau cover appear new and the car is topped off by a new re-manufactured factory hard top. The factory hard top was undoubtedly the best looking of all the options and really transforms the Roadster's looks. The original jack, wheel brace, and toolkit are also present.
There is something special about White E-Type roadsters, a certain cachet. For that reason, this car was chosen for a European trip to Switzerland after all the reconditioning work in 2017 when it apparently ran faultlessly. There may well still be a few other folks out there who have always wanted to own a white E-type Roadster and if you are one of those, then this matching numbers, freshly MoT'd Roadster is a fine example - ready to use and enjoy with all the work done.
