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.

This lovely Series II has been in the current ownership since 2011 and is an original UK delivered car having been first registered in Essex. In recent years the car has benefitted from a new clutch, refurbished suspension and complete brake overhaul. Having only covered 3,000 miles since 2013 this is a very good example of this affordable entry into E Type ownership.
