This particular series II E-Type Roadster 4.2 returned from the United States of America in 2006 and then went on to receive a nut and bolt restoration in 2011 by our vendor. During this comprehensive process, the car was swopped from left to right hand drive and the twin Stombergs changed to triple SU's to fully meet the original UK specification and power output.
The body was completely stripped and a new bonnet and all new panels, including the floor and boot floor were fitted. The engine was stripped and rebuilt, including the cylinder head and valves, the rear axle overhauled, all new shocks front and rear, new discs and calipers, all new brake pipes, a new fuel tank, and a stainless steel exhaust. 5 new chrome wire wheels, hubs and spinners were also fitted as were 5 new tyres. New front and rear chrome bumpers were attached, the car was re-trimmed with new seats, carpets and dashboard and a new hood finished everything off!
All relevant invoices are to be found in the history file and the car drives extremely well and feels very tight and together. A Jaguar Heritage certificate confirms that the chassis, engine, body and gearbox numbers all match from new and the car has covered just a handful of miles since restoration.
