Jaguar E-Type S2 Roadster 4.2 1969

We are pleased to offer:

 

The Jaguar E-Type (a.k.a. Jaguar XK-E) is a British sports car, which was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring. More than 70,000 E-Types were sold.

The Series 2 introduced a number of design changes, largely due to U.S. design legislation. The most distinctive feature is the absence of the aerodynamic glass headlight covers, which impacted several other imported cars, like the Citroën DS, as well. Unlike other cars, this retrograde step was applied worldwide for the E-Type. Other hallmarks of Series 2 cars are a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged “mouth” and twin electric fans, and uprated brakes. 

New seats were fitted, which purists claim lacked the style of the originals but were certainly more comfortable.. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned; rocker switches that met US health and safety regulations were substituted for toggle switches. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial “ribbed” appearance. Air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options.

This left hand drive example is presented in iconic dark green, synonymous with these British sports cars and is complemented by a black interior. The car has just been serviced and is a matching number car. A wonderful example and an opportunity not to be missed.
