Jaguar hatched their master plan to produce a ground-breaking sports car along the lines of their Le Mans winning D Type as a replacement for their hugely successful, though becoming rather dated XK120-150 line in 1956. The resultant E Type finally reached the showrooms in 1961 in coupe or roadster form, initially with 3.8, though soon with a 4.2-litre engine.
The entrant tells us that he acquired this 1969-built E Type Series 2 4.2 fixed head coupe in 2002 after it has been in receipt of a full and professional rebuild by a Jaguar restoration specialist. Photographs recording all stages of this refurbishment are available and can be inspected during viewing and on sale day. We understand from him that originally this was a US market car which was converted from lefthand drive to UK specification including a UK final drive and triple carburettors. The interior was largely renewed including steering wheel and switches.
Mileage since restoration has been low, we are told, though this did include a trouble-free trip to Le Mans in 2003. Current condition of bodyshell and dark blue paintwork are said to be excellent. The 4.2-litre 6-cylinder engine is reportedly in excellent order and the 4-speed manual transmission, having been rebuilt in 2002, very good. We understand that this fixed head has only come to market, reluctantly says the vendor, due to ill health.

Car to return to auction 10/14
www.coys.co.uk/auction.php

Auction description:
Lot 222 - 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 Litre Fixedhead Coupe
Estimate: £48,000 - £55,000
Registration Number: SJN 260G
Chassis Number: 1R25975

Manufactured in 1969, this fabulous Series II E-Type looks stunning sitting on chrome wire wheels with this iconic shape in blue with a contrasting red interior. We are informed that the fanatical owner recently completed a mechanical and body restoration which was completed some 2-3 years ago and as such is described as being excellent condition in every respect and drives beautifully. Supplied with a V5 document this is a wonderful example of the super attractive and iconic E-Type Fixedhead Coupe.

With their impeccable pedigree and background it is easy to see why these cars remain amongst the most sought after and collectible British sports cars from the post war period.

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?
