Car was sold by Duncan Hamilton in early 2016 and has evidently been subject to a full restoration. Car has been converted to RHD at some point in its life. See: www.duncanhamilton.com/cars-for-sale/1969-jaguar-e-type-series-2-fhc/

Above sellers description:
1969 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 FHC

We are delighted to offer this very special Jaguar E Type, Series 2, FHC, subject to a comprehensive restoration costing in excess of £100,000.

Supplied to America in 1969 and then brought back to the UK twenty years ago when the car was converted to RHD.

The car was stripped to a bare tub and then underwent a full bare metal re-spray to a concours standard.

The IRS unit had a full rebuild along with all of the suspension, brakes and a whole new wiring loom. These were also upgraded at the same time with no expense spared. The interior is also finished to an incredibly high standard with a complete bespoke leather finish.

You have to see this car to fully appreciate the extent of it's restoration!

Interior finished to a very high standard with a bespoke Biscuit leather finish

Needs to be seen in the metal to be fully appreciated

This, particular Series II FHC is a very special car indeed having been subject to a comprehensive restoration which cost in excess of £100,000. Now presented in Black with a bespoke Biscuit Leather interior ‘1R26841’ was first supplied to the US in 1969 and returned to the UK around 20 years ago when it's believed the right-hand drive conversion took place. 

The restoration was conventional in the sense that the car was taken back to bare metal, properly prepared (an intensive process in itself) and painted with a number of coats resulting in a depth of finish that can only be achieved with hours of work and quality materials. The brief all along was to achieve a Concours standard of finish and this was accomplished with a depth of shine that you feel you could almost dive into. The rebuild continued in the normal way with a new wiring loom, brakes, suspension etc, glass, chrome, and a fabulous interior. There were a number of upgrades incorporated into the rebuild, however, it's now completely normal to correct those areas where the E-Type had weaknesses and, far from affecting the car's value by being non-original, if anything E-Types with upgraded steering, gearbox, brakes and cooling, seem to command a premium. There is not enough space to describe this restoration in full but details are available from our office.

We could go on and describe the condition of the car in more detail, however, we believe that this Jaguar is so impressive that it really needs to be seen in the metal to be fully appreciated, so we encourage and welcome any inspection of this lovely Series II.

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?
