1969 Jaguar E-Type Roadster Series II 4.2 Litre
The Jaguar E-Type is arguably the greatest sports car ever built. It was announced at the March 1961 Geneva Motorshow and it took the motoring world by storm . . . the car was an absolute sensation! The body styling was simply gorgeous and technologically the E-Type was an engineering masterpiece and it set new standards in all areas.
Whilst automotive styling is somewhat subjective the E-Type is often ranked atop lists of ‘the most beautiful cars’ and in fact it has been described by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever made. And it’s not just about the looks as the E-Type is often at the top of other lists such as ‘The best sports car ever built’ or ‘The most significant cars’. It is truly a motoring icon.
As a testament to the the success of the E-Type, production evolved through three series from 1961 until 1974 during which time circa 70,000 cars were built.
We are delighted to offer a fabulous example of Jaguar’s iconic E-Type. Just fabulous are the words one would use to describe this restored 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4,2 litre Roadster!
The car was acquired by its current owner from Oldtimer Australia some seven years ago. At that time it had just completed a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration. The previous owner purchased the car in the USA, imported and restored it. At the time was car was converted to right hand drive. During the restoration it has had a number of sympathetic modifications and improvements to make it a more usable classic.
Today the car presents and drives beautifully. In fact this car is one of the most responsive and better performing E-Types we have had the pleasure to drive. The current owner of the car has maintained and improved the condition of the car during his custodianship and it has recently had a major service and the suspension rubbers replaced. It is ready for its new owner to drive, show and enjoy.
The car has a rare factory hard top, soft top, tonneau cover and bag, books and tools.
