1966 Jaguar E-Type 2+2

Price:   £sold


This 1966 Jaguar E-Type 2+2 is quite simply the best I have seen. The current owner has had it for 3-4 years, the previous owner over 20 years. It comes with a comprehensive history file that includes photos of the restoration, all invoices for parts and work carried out and MoT certificates and tax discs going back many years.


The bodywork and interior were completely restored in the 1990s and present excellently, the dark blue paint just about faultless and the grey leather interior much the same.


The 4.2 litre engine was rebuilt in 2012 by VSE and the gearbox was thoroughly overhauled at the same time. It has a set of stainless headers and there is a full stainless exhaust system fitted. The engine fires up easily, hot or cold, and sounds beautiful. I recently replaced all radiator hoses, changed the oil and filter (spin on type) and filled the cooling system with fresh anti-freeze.


The brakes, steering and suspension have also been overhauled with Coopercraft calipers fitted to the front. I recently replaced the lower ball joints and had the hub carrier, steering arm and backplate restored.


"On the button" and ready for anything. Please call for more details or to arrange a test drive.
