Auction description:
The Roy Savage Collection of Classic Cars(#124MG) 04/12/2016
Lot 127 of 30: 1969 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES II 4.2 FIXED HEAD COUPE
Estimate: $85,000 - $105,000
Chassis No: 1R 25720
Engine No: 7R 2767-9

This Series II 4.2 FHC for auction was acquired by Roy Savage in 1979 following its importation in to New Zealand in 1976 by Mr. Geoffrey Easterbrook-Smith. Easterbrook-Smith was Roy's neighbour and a member of the Diplomatic Corp in Switzerland. It is believed he purchased this car on the Continent from a previous owner and brought it back to NZ when his commission had finished. According to the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, this car was originally delivered to the Swiss distributor Emil Frey, Zurich on 13th February, 1969 as a fixed-head coupe, left hand drive. The car retains its original livery of Regency Red with black interior. It is believed Easterbrook-Smith brought the factory components to make the conversion to right hand drive on this car and that the work was carried out in NZ.

An interesting example of the marque and offering a very good opportunity for a collector, this E-type is in good running order showing approx. 65,650kms on the clock. It is a genuine triple SU carburettor model with the 4-speed gearbox and the original Smiths gauges. The paintwork is in fair condition for its age and use and shows various areas of retouch work and fading. The body work is straight and the glassware and chrome work is in good condition. The interior is original and its overall condition is consistent with its age and use. A desirable after-market Moto-Lita steering wheel has been fitted. General maintenance has been regularly attended to with receipts available.

Approximately 4,855 Series 2 FHCs were built between 1968-1971 making this car an inspiring opportunity to acquire a car with solid provenance and accompanied by the auspicious Jaguar Trust Heritage Certificate representing a classic 4.2-litre, triple SU carburettor, 4-speed manual E-type. Of particular importance, it has been retained and cherished within the Savage Collection for over 37 years.

This vehicle will be sold licenced with WoF.
