Not perfect, but then the asking price is not top price - certain works to do but a solid genuine car - hard to find any evidence of structural rust- silver self coloured underseal.
Repainted and unpholstered at some point.

£7453.14 spent since May 2017 by the present owner as listed below
From the collection of a long-term E-type Jaguar collector, this car has been carefully refreshed and was intended for use on European trips in the coming months, now that is it ready to be driven as it was meant to be driven.
However, the owner has suffered a devastating house fire this year, and now his need is to concentrate on rebuilding a complex listed house, while still retaining some of his car collection.
The house fire has not surprisingly taken over all other events for the owner at present - hence the car is now offered for sale.

An additional list odd jobs is of course there to be done, but in the main this car has had a fair amount of expenditure to ensure it is up to the standard desired by the owner to embark on touring in Europe.
Introduced in 1968, the Series 2 E-type had a number of design changes to suit the requirements of new legislation in the ever eager American market. Headlight covers disappeared, larger front and rear brake and indicator lights were introduced – no bad thing for the roads of today - and a new wrap-around rear bumper was fitted. Dashboard rocker switches replaced the toggle switches, and the bonnet mouth was enlarged slightly to aide cooling. Head restraints were now fitted. A key steering lock arrangement replaced the dashboard key and push-start button. Ribbed cam boxes introduced to replace the polished versions. Just 4855 fixed head coupe Series 2 E-types were produced, together with 8628 open top sports, and 5326 2+2 examples, totalling 18,809 cars
