AACA Senior National Award winner

This Jaguar E-Type Series 2 4.2-Liter Roadster was built on 19 May 1970. A left-hand-drive example, it left the factory finished in Primrose Yellow with a black interior and convertible top, as it appears today. The Jaguar was purchased by Anthony L. Laucello of Long Island City, New York. Eager to get his car, Mr. Laucello flew to the United Kingdom, taking “tourist delivery” on 8 August. While in the UK, the car was registered under number plate VWK 81 H. It was thoroughly enjoyed by Mr. Laucello for a number of years, eventually passing in 1989 to James Page of Florida with 22,350 miles recorded on the odometer. In the early 1990s, Mr. Page commissioned noted Florida restoration firm The Creative Workshop to perform a frame-off restoration, bringing the car back to its factory-delivered condition. In 1995 the Jaguar earned its AACA Senior National Award, a testament to the high quality of restoration it received. In March 2003 the E-Type was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Merrill of Illinois. They would add approximately 2,000 miles to the odometer.

Today the E-Type is presented in wonderful condition throughout, remaining very much as it left the factory years ago. Finished in Primrose Yellow accented by brilliant brightwork, the car rides on thin redline Michelin X radial tires mounted on knock-off wire wheels. While the exterior presentation of this car is stunning, it should be noted that the front windshield is exhibiting slight delamination along the top edge. The interior is trimmed in black leather with Smiths instrumentation adorning the dash, a period Phillips AM/FM transistor radio, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, bucket seats with headrests, and seat belts. The odometer displays less than 29,500 miles, which is believed to be original. A black convertible top and roll-up windows provide protection from inclement weather. When down, a black top boot conceals the top, helping the roadster retain a flowing appearance.

Retaining its original engine, the twin-cam 4.2-liter straight-six delivers excellent power with quick throttle response provided by dual Stromberg carburetors. The engine is backed by a four-speed manual gearbox which shifts smoothly through the gears. The undercarriage is remarkably tidy, evidence of the careful use this car has enjoyed. It should be noted that the front ball joint boots are torn—a typical wear item—but this does not prevent one from driving and enjoying the car.

The E-Type is accompanied by its original Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin (MSO), original Jaguar Export Sales form, Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, a reproduction owner’s manual and wiring diagram book, knock-off hub tool and hammer, jack with bag, and a matching full spare. Furthermore, a photo album documenting the restoration is included.

The E-Type remains one of Jaguar’s most iconic road cars, a model that finds its home in some of the most discerning collections throughout the world. The second series 4.2-Liter E-Type is truly “a different breed of cat.”
