Three generations of the Jaguar E-type (Jaguar XK-E) were built between 1961 and 1974. The E-type meant a revolution in the design, performance and handling of sports cars. The Jaguar E-type holds first place on the list of best sports cars of the 1960s.
The Series II was manufactured from 1969 to 1971 and has headlights without glass covers (the lights of the Series 1 had problems due to condensation), a rear bumper folded around the back, relocated and larger direction indicators, rear lights relocated to below the rear bumper, improved cooling with a larger radiator and improved brakes. The interior was also redesigned. It was fitted with new control levers, more comfortable seats and optional air conditioning and power steering.
This Jaguar is in very neat and original condition (the interior, engine and transmission are all original). The vehicle starts immediately, shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears, idles nicely at 800 rpm and brakes properly. This Jaguar has beautiful wire wheels, brand new whitewall tyres (0 km), nice chrome and special Primrose Yellow lacquer which is still in neat condition.
The interior is in neat condition and has original Jaguar leather. The previous owner always stored the car indoors and this you can really tell from its looks. A new soft-top was mounted in December of 2020. The car has Zenith carburettors and disc brakes on all wheels.
What also makes this Jaguar desirable is the fact it still has the original matching numbers engine. These Jaguar E-type convertibles are increasingly rising in terms of value, even more so in such a neat and original condition. So don't wait too long and seize this opportunity to become the owner of this wonderful classic which many regard as the most beautiful car ever made.
