1971 Jaguar E-type II 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe

Matching numbers with a lovely history file


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 center section bridged a larger radiator intake. Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles.

This beautiful matching numbers manual example is not only offered with a swathe of service documentation but also its original maintenance and service handbook. Described by the owner as a great daily driver, the car comes with a lovely amount of patina and in fantastic original and unmolested condition including rare original paint. Clean, presentable and mechanically sound, this car is indeed a fun British sports car, but also a very practical Sunday driver.
