I'm selling this car for my Father. It's been in our family 25 years.
This car has never been restored. It has been repainted once and had it's leather seats recovered. This was done back in the early 1990's. The car has a factory hardtop. This car is considered the last of the series one cars, having all the desirable features of the series one cars, Triple SU's, slim bumpers and lights, toggle switches with one of the first open headlight bonnets.
This car is in very nice condition, very solid, rust free and always been in San Diego, Ca.. The paint is twenty years old and still looks great. There are a few minor flaws. There is some shrinkage on the bonnet near the headlight buckets, a couple of repaired paint chips on the edge of the trunk lid. Overall the car looks great and these areas are hardly noticeable. The chrome is excellent. The Hardtop has never been restored, is all original and in nice shape. The black paint is thin in places. I've just replaced some of the rubber seals. The car also has the AMCO bumpers that fit between the overiders, I just took them off.
The interior is also very nice with everything being correct. The center console is the only area that shows some wear, which is minor. The stereo isn't hooked up and does pull out leaving a neat hole. Everything in this car works with the exception of the small clock in the tach. The top was also replaced in the early 1990's, is in great shape and the back window clear. It's spent most of it's life folded down. The top boot is the original, looks fine but is showing some wear. The trunk has a been relined and looks new. The spare is a nice Michelin on a very nice rim. The jack and knock-off hammer are in their bag. There is no tool kit. We never had one.
Mechanically the car is excellent. It runs, drives and stops just like a nice E-type should. Two years ago my wife and I drove this car from Whidbey Island, Wa. to San Diego, Ca. using Highway 1 and 101 as much as we could. The car ran flawlessly, it was a fantastic drive.
Before that trip we replaced all four tires and tubes, the brake master and booster. All the coolant hoses. A new electronic ( pointless ) SU fuel pump and the starter.
Seven years ago I dropped the rear sub frame , resealed the diff. and rebuilt everything else, plus new shocks and calipers front and rear . Steering rack mounts and boots. Drive shaft rebuilt. Converted the car to a spin on oil filter
There was also a valve job done when we first bought the car. My Brother and I owned a British Sports Car shop in San Diego at the time. The mileage of 68,322 is believed to be correct. My father worked overseas and the car spent most of it's life in storage.
It's body tag reads ; Car # 1E15126 , Engine # 7E12765-9 , Body # 4E6911 and Gearbox # EJ134888 .
I never looked at the gearbox, but all the other numbers match including the head and the block. The small silver tag near this reads J/67 .
Overall this is a great E-type. It's a car I have always loved and cared for, hoping it would be mine one day. But it's not to be, so here's your chance. This E-type looks and drives great, but isn't so perfect that you're afraid to use it. It is a 46 year old car, so it's not perfect, just very nice.
