Advertised on carsales.com.au 7 December 2021 asking AU$117,950. The car is located in Brisbane, Australia. Selling dealer’s description (abbreviated) follows:
For sale is an Australian delivered, factory right hand drive, 1970 Jaguar E-Type, Series 2, 2+2, automatic.
Heritage Certificate confirms this is a matching numbers car which was manufactured on 22nd May 1970 and dispatched on 16th June 1970 to British Leyland, Australia. It also confirms that the car was delivered in signal red with a beige interior.
Not much is known about the subsequent early history of the car. It was understood to have been sold new in NSW. The previous owner, a Mr Berry from Liverpool south west of Sydney, acquired the car circa 1980 from Chequered Flag/Sports Car World on Parramatta Rd in Sydney. The car was then blue and its previous owner was understood to be a lady who had purchased it after she’d won the Lotto!
Berry owned the car for approximately 25 years. In 1998 he took the car back to bare metal and had it repainted in its original colour, red. At that time, he also retrimmed the car and had all the chrome redone. There are a few photos on file showing the car stripped down and one photo after it had been repainted. In 2000 the cylinder head was reconditioned and new valves were installed.
The current owner purchased the car at the end of 2004 from Jaguar specialist Ian Cummins in Sydney, who had the car on consignment. At that time the odometer read 83,439 miles.
The car had a few mechanical issues which were all rectified by Cummins before the car was delivered to its new owner in Brisbane in February 2005. At delivery it was registered as 395JAD. The registration was then immediately changed to JAG422, which it retains today.
The current owner has used this car as his daily driver for the past 17 years. That said, it probably only gets driven two or three times a week and it has travelled just under 23,000 miles in this time.

During his ownership the car has always been looked after by Brisbane based Jaguar specialists including Jag World, DM Car Repairs, RC Grieve and more recently Classic and Prestige. Being his daily driver, it meant this car needed to be reliable and therefore it was serviced on a regular basis. If any work needed to be done to the car, it was done. Some of the maintenance completed in the current owner’s time with the car include:
In 2007 the transmission was removed from the car and overhauled and a reconditioned torque converter was fitted. At the same time the timing chains and tensioners, the welch plugs, the main big end bearings and the crankshaft rear main seal were replaced.
In July 2008 the suspension was overhauled. At that time the mileage was noted as 89,062 miles.
In February 2011 new front brake discs were installed and all the instruments were reconditioned. The odometer read 93,763 miles.
In 2015 the air conditioning system was overhauled which included the installation of a new compressor.
Between 2018 and 2019 the steering rack was completely overhauled.
In September 2021 the carburettors were rebuilt.
Accompanying the car is a good history file with service records going back to 2005, a Heritage Certificate, an owner’s manual, spare wheel and a jack.
Today the odometer reads 106,287.
