Jaguar E-Type UVP 688H
Here's an opportunity to pick up a very clean and usable example of one of the world's best cars. In the current ownership for the last 5 years the car is now being offered for sale only because the owner is no longer able to drive a manual gearbox.
During this time the car has undergone some serious work to bring up to this standard. Over the summer of 2013 the engine was removed and the body was given the benefit of new sills, wings and door-skins as well as floor panels. On completion of this work it was re-painted Grenadier Red. A new windscreen was fitted on re-assembly. The front and rear bumpers were re-chromed as well.
Whilst it was out of the car the engine was stripped and rebuilt with new bearing shells. The engine bay was painted to match the body and the engine cleaned up and re-painted too. All new engine mounts were fitted along with new hoses etc.. The carburetors have been rebuilt using stay-up floats. A new clutch was also fitted at this time. A stainless steel exhaust system finishes off the drivetrain.
The front and rear suspension have been rebuilt with new bushings and shock absorbers and new springs at the back. The brakes have been refurbished. New wheels have been fitted and the front tyres have been replaced recently. New universal joints and a repconditioned differential have been fitted as well. The original painted wheels are included with the car.
The seats show some small signs of wear but are otherwise in excellent condition. The carpets are good.
On the down side a new headlining would improve the interior and the door rubbers are starting to show their age.
One the whole this is an excellent example of a beautiful car and offers a sound investment opportunity that you could drive anywhere.
