£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, given a bit more work.

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. Not surprisingly his house rebuild has taken over all other events for the owner at present - hence the car is now offered for sale.

Work carried out in current ownership since May 2017 totals £7453.14:-

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, totaling 18,809 cars
