1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series 2 FHC SOLD

1968 Jaguar E-Type 4. 2 Series 2 FHC For Restoration 

* Update* - The original matching engine has now been located & will be supplied with the car.

LHD, Manual, Only Two Owners, 86500 Miles, Light Blue, Rust Free, Increasingly rare in this condition
Recently imported directly from California, we are pleased to offer this very original & rust free series 2 FHC for restoration. The car is a genuine 'Black Plate' California car and has been cared for by its two owners in California its whole life. The warm climate has obviously been kind to the car as the overall condition is extremely good, with straight body panels and good door & bonnet gaps. The car was manufactured in Coventry on the 7th October 1968, supplied in one of the most desirable colours of Light Blue with complementing dark blue interior. Overall this E Type is in amazing condition, 100% complete, nothing missing, with absolutely zero rust on the car anywhere. All the usual problem areas are completely solid & rot free. The original body panels, floors & chassis are all in very good condition. The engine is free and turns over on the key, although we have not attempted to get the car running. The chrome trim is all present & very usable as are the original chrome wire wheels, including the spare. Unfortunately the windscreen is cracked and the dash has been baked by the sun. The only other negative is a dent above the rear bumper although this will be easily repaired during the restoration process. A heritage certificate is present confirming matching chassis, body, & gearbox although the engine in the car has been replaced at some point. A folder of paperwork is present, including the original lease order, service book, manual and early service invoices adding further provenance to this rare car. With straight genuine cars like this becoming increasingly hard to find, this car represents a fantastic opportunity to start your restoration from a very solid base rather than spending months in the body shop cutting out & repairing rotten panels etc.

The car is here in the UK, available now with all taxes paid & is registered on the NOVA system with US Title present.

Located Just outside Norwich in Norfolk, viewing by appointment.
