The Condition 

Desirable colour scheme 

S3-style front end makeover 

The body of the E-Type is presented in the classic and timeless shade of British Racing Green, which suits the lines extremely well. The paintwork shows the odd blemish of age here and there, along the front wing sides and rear wing tops for example, but this is all in-keeping with a car that’s been well-used. It’s no garage queen, this is an E-Type for driving and enjoying. 

The correct chrome is all in place and in tidy condition, and the nose has been treated to a Series III-style makeover, with S3 quarter bumpers, grille (de-badged) and lower air scoop. The panel fit is good throughout with nice even shutlines, and the windows wind up and down as they should. The light lenses and window glass are decent, the wire wheels are tidy, and the tyres have plenty of tread. 

Inside the cabin, we find that this is a great example of a properly used classic; we’re not looking at a concours-quality interior, but rather one which you wouldn’t be afraid to use day-to-day. Everything is present and correct, the seats are in good condition with no rips or tears, and the period-correct wood-rim steering wheel is a tasteful item. There are seatbelts fitted to the rear, and a modern CD/radio head unit in the dash with speakers either side of the transmission tunnel. 

The carpets and headlining are complete; the headlining is a little mildewy but this shouldn’t be hard to clean up. Inside the boot it’s all dry and neat with the correct spare wheel beneath the floor. 

The Mechanics 

4.2-litre straight-six 

Manual transmission 

The 4.2-litre straight-six is a willing and eager unit, and this one appears in fine fettle. Wearing the proper UK-spec triple SU carbs, this Jaguar’s engine bay is tidily presented; the engine starts readily, idles well, registers the appropriate temperatures and pressures on the dials, and pulls strongly through the revs. 

The manual gearbox is appropriately slick in its operation, the brakes feel strong, and the Jaguar rides well with the right combination of smoothness with a sporting edge. It’s happy to act as a gentle cruiser or a lively B-road plaything, just as an E-Type should.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
