Primrose yellow with black leather, 5-speed, triple Weber carbs, right hand drive ... fantastic restoration!
This is an extremely nice numbers matching series 1 e-type 2+2 coupe that went through a complete nuts and bolts restoration by Whitehouse Restoration in the UK. The restoration started in 1994 and took 8 years to completed. The body was taken COMPLETELY apart and is now totally rust free and straight. Please refer below to photos of the car tub after it was painted. The Primrose paint is very nice as is the black leather interior. The previous owner wanted a no excuses car and upgraded the gearbox to 5-speed and installed the superior cooling system found on the series 2 e-type.. If you have ever driven an e-type you already know what difference that 5th gear makes and the relief of having a cooling system that actually works. The original 4.2 liter engine was given three Webers ... now that is performance! The car was converted to right hand drive and is perfect for the UK, Australia, Japan .... or to look really cool in California or New York.
This is one of those cars that you have to see and drive to really appreciate it. It is being offered for a fraction of the restoration cost. If this car was a roadster it would be priced well over $120,000 .... but it isn't, therefore the price is only $49,900. Impossible to replace for anywhere this cost. Please click here for a copy of the restoration receipts. Please note that these receipts do NOT include the cost for paint and body, the 5-speed gearbox, Weber carbs, wire wheels and much more. The prior owner claims he invested over 60,000 pounds (that's $117K dollars!) on this car. Looking at the quality of the work and the cost for the mechanical restoration, I believe him.. Unique opportunity of buying this series 1 e-type at a fraction of the restoration cost!
I have sold several cars to Europe and will be glad to assist you in the shipping process.
