Description:

Lot 196 - 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Fixedhead Coupé

Registration DWR 376H Chassis Number 1R20576 Engine Number 7R95879 Odometer reading 71,986 miles Estimate £46,000 - £52,000

This stunning fixedhead E-Type was first registered in May 1970 and supplied by Cox Jaguar of Keighley. The first owner kept the car until 1978 and the second owner for a further 25 years. Having covered some 68,000 miles up until 2003, before being sold to its third custodian, who did less than 2,000 miles in his ownership until 2007. The car was then purchased by Racing Green, Jaguar specialists who embarked on a year-long restoration which included the body, a full interior retrim and a thorough mechanical overhaul. Works included new brakes and servo, a stainless steel exhaust system, Koni classic shock absorbers all round, a new cooling system and a set of five MSW Chrome Wheels with Vredestein Sprint Classic tyres. The restoration stayed true to the car’s originality with no radio or wing mirrors fitted as that is how the car left the factory. Still wearing its original registration for which it has never deviated from in 52 years.

Purchased by our vendor in 2009 as a retirement present, this was to be his ‘last and best E-Type’. Remarkably, less than 1,500 dry miles have been covered in nearly 14 years, but no expense has been spared on servicing and upkeep. Supplied with invoices exceeding £15,000 for servicing, ignition maintenance, carburettor tuning, a new alternator, heating system overhaul, a new clutch with associated cylinders, regular geometry checks and adjustments.

The result, we are informed, is a car that drives superbly and the vendor states, "the best E-Type I have driven" with "oodles of torque, a lovely gearbox, precise handling and most importantly, a car that has been totally reliable". This, alongside the quality restoration that still looks sharp nearly 14 years later makes for a very compelling E-Type, which is now being sold as the owner is in his advanced years. Supplied with its original service book and service invoices dating back to 1970, owner's manual, the original service facilities booklet, a raft of receipts as well as all previous owner information. This is a great opportunity to buy a properly sorted E-Type that ticks all the boxes.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
