Car returns to auction 6/22
1968 Jaguar E-Type FHC 2+2
Odometer 107,100 Miles
Engine size 4235
Auction DetailsSeller Type Private
Country United Kingdom
• Comprehensively restored to a tremendously high standard
• UK-supplied right-hand drive Series 1 2+2
• Covered only 7,000 miles since fully documented restoration
• Only five owners in 54 years
• Impressive and extensive history file
• Comprehensive restoration between 2002 and 2004
• Completed just 7,000 miles since
• Restorative process included bare metal respray
• All mechanical components renewed/replaced and engine overhauled
• MOT tested every year since with current expiring in October 2022
• Agreed insurance valuation certificate provided
• History extensively documented with invoices
• Production Record Trace Certificate from Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust
• V5 log book present and correct
The current owner, who is a former aircraft engineer, acquired the car from E Type specialist, "E Type UK" and maintains the car to a tremendously high standard and is only now selling to free up time to focus on other projects.
• Excellent condition interior with some characterful patina
• Seats retrimmed in black leather with red piping
• Carpets in excellent order
• Switchgear and dials working correctly
The interior condition of this fabulous E-Type is excellent overall. The upholstery has been retrimmed at some point in its life, and the black leather seats with red piping look absolutely at home in what the vendor describes as a cabin with a thoroughly pleasant aged patina.
Steering wheel, dashboard and headlining all look great with no significant marks or damage to note. Interior carpet is in fantastic shape throughout.
There are no modifications to speak of and even the vinyl boot floor is tidy, with the very good condition spare wheel and original Jaguar jack and tool kit present underneath.
One minor fault is the interior clock, which does not work.
• Bare metal Carmen Red respray in 2002
• Excellent condition chrome wire wheels
• Tremendous condition underneath
• Fixtures and fittings all very nice
The owner grades the paintwork as an 8 out of 10, stating that it is really very nice overall with some minor blemishes and the odd stone chip here and there. There are no major dents or scratches to speak of anywhere on the car.
The 2002 restoration was certainly done to a high standard and the bright Carmen Red paintwork gleams in the sunshine, accentuated by the very good condition brightwork and beautiful chrome wire wheels. All four tyres have good tread on them, too.
The owner states that the car is “as clean underneath as it is on top” with no corrosion or rust, a point which is demonstrated by the undercar photographs.
• Engine runs perfectly with strong oil pressure
• Stainless steel twin exhaust system
• Drives beautifully with excellent road handling and braking performance
• No mechanical faults to note
The car is very usable thanks to a fantastically strong 4.2-litre engine that runs with no problems and no smoke, and sounds absolutely brilliant under acceleration thanks to the tasteful stainless steel exhaust system.
An XJ6 4-speed gearbox with overdrive is currently fitted to the car, which operates faultlessly and makes the car a comfortable cruiser on the motorway. However, an original 4-speed box is supplied should the new owner wish to revert the car back to its original specification.
Steering, suspension and braking systems all work as they should, resulting in a car that not only accelerates well but handles very nicely, just as Jaguar intended.
There are no mechanical faults that the owner is aware of that require immediate attention.
