1969 Jaguar e-type series 2 Roadster

VIN: 1R8253

This 1969 series 2 roadster has 28K genuine miles, and looks like a low mileage Jaguar should look.

Exterior is primrose yellow with original black leather interior. The car has its original matching number 4.2 liter inline 6 cylinder engine and full synchro 4 speed gearbox,. The wire wheels are new (stainless steel spokes) and new proper size (185 x 15) tires. Spare tire is the original Dunlop SP Sport. The interior has a great patina with its original leather! As these car are quickly approaching 40 years old, finding e-type roadsters with their original interior is getting very hard, especially in this nice of a condition. The top is also the original, only the back clear plastic was replaced. The paint was stripped to bare metal and painted to very good standards two years ago. The chrome is very good.

This car is completely rust and accident free and there has never been any panels replaced. Even in places such as the spare tire well (which is a common rust spot), this car is spotless ... please see photos. The gauges and switches have a nice sheen, a clear indication of not only the low miles but that it was stored indoors all its life. All switches and gauges work, with the exception of the clock. If you like original cars, you will not be disappointed with this one.

Mechanically the engine is very strong with excellent oil pressure. Clutch and gearbox are also in good condition. The radiator fans work as they should.

Comes with owner's manual, lubrication chart, wiring diagram, jack in the bag, knock off hammer, boot cover, and CD-ROM with factory parts and repair manuals.

This Jaguar is a very nice, well kept original example that can be enjoyed and displayed as is.
