Jaguar 'E' Type FHC.
Finished in Regency Red with black hide interior. Specification includes : Chrome Wire wheels. Whitewall tyres. Air conditioning. Moto Lita steering wheel. Front headrests. Sundym glass. ie Probably all the boxes ticked when this car was ordered new!!! 'E' Types look good - this one is a real head turner.
A very fine US specification 4.2 litre manual gearbox car, imported to the UK 2 years ago. Duty paid and UK registered she was the subject of a good restoration in the US before shipment here.
Everything works properly, although it must be said the air conditioning is showing its' age now. She drives very nicely and looks fantastic. Mileage listed is that displayed on the speedomteter - I cannot verify this.
