I am now the owner of this car, I bought this car on ebay from a guy called Richard Dixon, who had bought the car from the original owner in Canada, according to this person there were only 3 previous owners,
Mr Dixon in Manchester England was owner number 4, and now myself, I am the present owner number 5. 1968 to 2018. 50 years and only 5 different owners, isn't that amazing.Regards Michael Jones,

At the sale today you will see a number of glamorous, fully restored E-Types with asking prices in the six-figure department. This is not one of those. Imported to the UK in June 2015 and now UK Registered, this is a rare Series 1.5, left-hand drive, 4.2-litre 2+2 coupe with an automatic gearbox that's finished in Opalescent Silver Blue. The dark Blue leather interior is original and described as 'good' and the car comes with a brand new set of carpets, yet to be fitted. The coachwork and paintwork are generally 'good' and the chrome and brightwork are 'very good'.
During the last 12 months (March 2018), the current owner, who purchased the Jaguar from its first UK owner, had a lot of work carried out on the engine. The head was rebuilt and new pistons, rings, big-ends, timing chains, head studs, thrust bearings and a water pump were fitted. A high-torque starter motor was added, the carbs serviced, and a full engine service with fresh fluids carried out. The bills for this amounted to over £3,850 and a further 3,000 was spent on the brakes, gearbox seals and bushes. The Jaguar is MoT'd until October 2018 and thereafter is exempt from tax and future MoTs.
This seems like tremendous value. A decent, matching numbers, Fixed Head Coupe at a guide price that allows for some improvements and a few cosmetic touches.
