This 1970 Jaguar E-Type is a Series II coupe which was reportedly purchased new from Plimley Motors, Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, and was acquired by the seller in the same province in 1994. A rotisserie restoration between 2001-2011 included body repairs, a repaint in original Opalescent Silver metallic, interior refinishing, rebuilds of the numbers-matching 4.2-liter inline-six and four-speed manual gearbox, suspension and brake work, and more. Under 3k miles have been driven since completion of the work, which was carried out largely by the seller with the help of a friend. Service within the past year included replacement of the water pump, starter, and several seals as well as an oil change, coolant and brake fluid flushes, and more. The car was recently imported to the US by the seller and is stored at a dealership in Auburn, Washington. This Series II E-Type is offered with refurbishment photos and receipts, a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, a Concours award, tools, spare parts, and a clean Washington State title.

This example was refinished in its original Opalescent Silver metallic paint in 2004, and exterior equipment includes flat-lens H4 headlamps and a heated rear window. Brightwork was polished or re-plated as needed, and the body seals and gaskets were replaced.

Prep work reportedly included an acid dip and repairs to the floor pans, hatch floor, rear doglegs, rockers, and door sills as well as replacement of the lower front valance, with panels sourced from Martin Robey. The body was then phosphate dipped and painted with epoxy primer, R-M base coat, and a clear top coat.

Custom-laced 72-spoke Dayton knock-off wire wheels feature earless spinners and measure 15″x5” up front and 15″x6” at the rear. Coker Classic redline tires were mounted in 2008. The car was awarded First Place in its class at the 2011 Jaguars on the Island E-Type 50th Anniversary Concours d’Elegance held in North Vancouver, British Columbia, and judging sheets and awards are included in the sale. A walk-around video has been provided by the seller.

A new interior in the correct pattern was sourced from OSJI in Muncie, Indiana and includes Wilton wool carpets and black leather upholstery over high-backed bucket seats with headrests. Door card vinyl and rear hatch coverings were replaced, and a spare wheel and tool kit are housed beneath the rear hatch load surface. Interior brightwork was polished or re-plated as needed, and the window cranks and regulators were replaced.

A smaller-diameter XK’s Unlimited steering wheel features polished metal and a wood rim, and fronts a black crinkle-finished dash housing rocker switches and Smiths gauges. The seller notes that the car was originally equipped with an air conditioning system, which has not been reinstalled. A period radio is housed in the center stack, and the cigar lighter is said to function properly. The five-digit odometer shows 74k miles, with under 3k driven since completion of the refurbishment.

The numbers-matching 4.2-liter inline-six breathes through twin polished Stromberg carburetors and features finned cam covers as well as an aftermarket thermostat and electric fans to aid cooling. A four-speed transmission routes power to the rear wheels. The drivetrain and carburetors were rebuilt by All Power Engines in North Vancouver circa 2001 and reinstalled with a new clutch and mounts. The fuel sending unit and filter were also replaced. The seller notes that the accessory bracket and wiring harness are prepared for installation for installation of air conditioning equipment.

Engine stamp 7R 9351-9 matches that on the chassis plate and Jaguar Heritage certificate below. The seller has provided a tour of the engine bay and a cold start demonstration, while other videos showing cylinder compression readings are included on his YouTube channel. Within the past 14 months, the water pump and clutch master cylinder were replaced, a high-torque starter and high-speed Lucas cooling fans were fitted, the alternator was rebuilt, drivetrain leaks were addressed and differential seals replaced, and driveline fluids were changed, along with coolant and brake fluid flushes.

The steering rack was rebuilt and fitted with new bellows and tie rod ends, and a suspension overhaul with new bushings and dampers was carried out. The brake and clutch hydraulic cylinders were replaced, the rear calipers were rebuilt, and other brake and suspension work was were performed. The suspension was recently tuned by Vancouver specialist Sovereign Motors.

The build is documented through a collection of over 250 invoices and receipts.

The Jaguar Heritage Production Record Trace Certificate lists production data including the original colors as well as the engine and chassis numbers.

This 1970 Jaguar XKE is a Series II fixed-head coupe that was built on December 1, 1969, and is said to have been first sold by Plimley Motors, Ltd. of Vancouver, British Columbia. It was acquired by the seller in the same province in 1994 and refurbished from 2001 to 2011 before it was listed on BaT in August 2019. The car is finished in silver over black leather upholstery, and power comes from a rebuilt, numbers-matching 4.2-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Service performed in 2019 included the installation of a water pump and a starter, an oil change, and flushes of the brake and cooling systems. This XKE is now offered with a car cover and a clean Washington State title.

The car was stripped to bare metal and placed on a rotisserie before receiving bodywork, a replacement front lower valance, and a repaint in its factory silver in 2004. New body seals were also installed, and the brightwork is said to have been refurbished, while worn trim pieces were replaced. Features include uncovered H4 headlights, a heated rear window, a wrap-around rear bumper, and turn indicator and brake lamps mounted underneath the bumpers.

The 15×6″ center-laced, 72-spoke Dayton wire wheels feature earless spinners and are mounted with 205/75 Coker Classic radial redline tires that were installed in 2008. Braking is handled by four-wheel discs with inboard rear rotors. A suspension service was performed by Sovereign Motors of Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2019, and a brake fluid flush was also done that year.

The cabin features high-backed bucket seats with headrests that were reupholstered in black leather from OSJI of Muncie, Indiana, during the 2000s refurbishment. Black Wilton wool carpets were also installed along with new window cranks and regulators, and the interior brightwork was either refurbished or replaced depending on wear. Features include an AM/FM radio, a cigar lighter, a center console, and lap belts. The car was previously equipped with an air-conditioning system that has since been removed.

The XK’s Unlimited wood-rimmed steering wheel is smaller than the factory unit and fronts Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and gauges for voltage, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows just under 74k miles, approximately 3k of which were reportedly added since the 2000s refurbishment.

The 4.2-liter inline-six features twin Stromberg carburetors and finned cam covers as well as an aftermarket thermostat and electric fans to aid cooling. The powertrain was rebuilt by All Power Engines of North Vancouver, British Columbia, approximately 20 years ago and was reinstalled with a new clutch, mounts, and a fuel sending unit. A 2019 service included the installation of a new water pump and a starter, an oil change, and a coolant flush. The accessory bracket and wiring harness are prepared for the installation of air conditioning equipment according to the seller.

Engine stamping 7R9351–9 matches both the chassis tag and Jaguar Production Record Trace Certificate.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. Additional underside photos are viewable in the gallery below.

The Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate lists the factory colors and identification numbers as well as a manufacture date of December 1, 1969.

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?
