There can not be many E-types which have covered just 351 miles, according to the odometer. This car is therefore also one of the most original E-types in existence, showing only a little wear and tear. In fact, this car has strangely enough probably covered about one million miles, without ever turning a wheel!
Built in October 1967, this E-type was used by Jaguar for a display on board the famous Cunard liner, the RMS Queen Elizabeth, for a period of about three years. This was towards the end of the era of the great luxury express liners in passenger service on the North Atlantic. The Queen Elizabeth, launched in 1940 and the world's biggest liner at the time, originally served as a war-time troop ship, but entered civilian service in 1947. Her life ended sadly when she burned out and capsized in the port of Hong Kong.
Together with the Queen Mary, these two liners offered a weekly sailing in each direction between Southampton and New York, and gave Cunard the leading position in the Atlantic passenger trade. However, eventually the service came to an end, in the face of competition from aircraft. Both the Queens were withdrawn from service, and the E-type was returned to Jaguar, where it has been kept ever since as a display and later museum car.

Hi, why does it say "Opalescent Silver Grey" as the car would appear to be "Pale Primrose" as it surely was since it was first put together at the factory? A small mouse error perhaps? No? Maybe change the color, at least the current one if JHT has not told it was this way all the time? Very clearly green tinted windscreen and other glass on the car BTW.

Changed the colour, most likely a pull-down meny error. Cheers!
