1970 XKE SERIES II ROADSTER
Restored to Factory Fresh Condition!
The E-type offered for sale here is known to be one of the finest Series II E-Types available. A California car since arrival from Conventry, this rust free Jaguar underwent a meticulous ground up, nut and bolt restoration. Factory originality was the target so no expense was spared.

The car is finished as original in Old English White with black Conolly hides and a correct black vinyl convertible top. With all numbers matching, this is as original a restored E-type as you will find. I acquired this car in factory-original condition in 1975 with low mileage on the clock and have owned it since. This car has been immaculately and carefully restored. In fact the heralded Illustrated Series II Parts Manual and Restoration Guide was developed around this car. This is an absolutely superb E-type roadster, deserving of any collector. It can be shown as well as driven.

The car's aesthetics are immaculate. This car has never been dented as revealed during the restoration. The paint is deep and blemish free. There are no scratches, dings, nicks, ripples, etc. The car is as straight as, if not straighter than it came from the factory. All chrome pieces are original and have been re-plated to show quality. The new wire wheels can accommodate modern tire sizes. The interior is gorgeous and perfect. The steering wheel is perfect, the carpets are new, and everything functions as it should, including the oil pressure gauge! As the pictures show, the engine bay has been immaculately restored and detailed as well.

Sellers description:
AUTO ELITE GROUP IS PROUD TO PRESENT THE 1970 JAGUAR XKE SERIES II ROADSTER. THIS ICONIC JAGUAR WAS FRESHLY RESTORED TO ITS FORMER FACTORY FRESH CONDITION. THIS E-TYPE IS KNOWN TO BE ONE OF THE FINEST SERIES II E-TYPES AVAILABLE. THIS E-TYPE WAS SHIPPED FROM COVENTRY, ENGLAND AND RESIDED IN CALIFORNIA FOR MOST OF IT'S LIFE. IT WAS THEN PURCHASED FRESHLY RESTORED IN 2010 FROM CALIFORNIA. MADE ITS WAY DOWN TO PALM BEACH INTO A PRIVATE COLLECTION. THIS IS A RUST FREE, NUMBERS MATCHING JAGUAR THAT WENT THROUGH A METICULOUS GROUND UP, NUT AND BOLT RESTORATION. THE RESTORATION'S END RESULT WAS TO MAINTAIN THE ORIGINAL INTEGRITY OF THE XKE AND BRING IT BACK TO FACTORY SPECIFICATIONS. THERE WAS NO EXPENSE SPARED ON THIS RESTORATION.

THE XKE IS FINISHED IN IT'S ORIGINAL OLD ENGLISH WHITE WITH BLACK CONOLLY HIDES AND CORRECT BLACK VINYL CONVERTIBLE TOP. WITH ALL NUMBER'S MATCHING, THIS IS AS AN ORIGINAL E-TYPE AS YOU CAN FIND. THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD ACQUIRED THE JAGUAR IN 1975 (AS THE SECOND OWNER) WITH VERY LOW MILEAGE ON THE CLOCK AND HE OWNED THE CAR UNTIL 2010. AS YOU SEE IN OUR PICTURES AND EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTATION THIS JAGUAR HAS BEEN IMMACULATELY AND CAREFULLY RESTORED. AS A MATTER OF FACT THE HERALDED ILLUSTRATED SERIES II PARTS MANUAL AND RESTORATION GUIDE WAS BASED AND DEVELOPED AROUND THIS SPECIFIC JAGUAR. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A SUPERB E-TYPE ROADSTER THAT IS DESERVING OF ANY COLLECTOR. THE JAGUAR RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE A DREAM.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
