1969 Jaguar E Type Series 2 4.2 litre manual Fixed Head Coupe

Description

Launched in October 1964, the 4.2-litre version of Jaguar’s sensational E-Type brought with it a more user-friendly all-synchromesh gearbox and a superior Lockheed brake servo along with the bigger, torquier engine. Like its 3.8-litre forbear, the 4.2-litre E-Type was built in roadster and coupe forms, and in 1966 gained an additional ‘2+2′ variant on a 9” longer wheelbase.

Changes to United States safety and emissions legislation prompted the revised Series II E-Type of 1968. The headlight fairings were deleted, enlarged side and rear lights adopted, while a thickened front bumper centre section bridged a larger radiator intake. Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles.

Finished in the classic colour scheme of Carmen Red with a Tan interior trim, this later Series II example has benefitted from a cosmetic refresh both inside and out, a full service, and the fitting of new wheels and low profile tyres just 500 miles ago. With strong performance from the straight six motor, this well presented E-Type is offered with its original owners and service books and manuals.
