Sellers description:
1969 Jaguar, Series 2, 2+2 E-Type Coupe with 136000 kilometres (85,000 miles). It is equipped with 4.2 litre engine linked to a standard gearbox. Due to the extra leg room and head room offered in the longer wheelbase 2+2 configuration, this car is especially comfortable for drivers over 6 ft in height. Though often derided, the 2+2 still possesses the grace and space we have come accustomed to with the Jaguar E-Type, at a fraction of the cost of the open two-seater.

I purchased this car in January, 1987, drove it for six years and then began a costly restoration that was completed, by and large, in 1994. Since then, I have rarely driven the car, accumulating only 10,000 miles in the past 19 years. Because I use the Jaguar so seldom I have reluctantly decided to pass ownership to someone who can better utilize this beautiful British icon.

Features include Signal Red acrylic enamel over two-part epoxy primer applied to bare metal. Any rust was eliminated by cutting out the affected areas and hammer welding in replacement panels. Panel gaps are good. The body is straight and totally rust free.

Mechanically, the engine was freshened with new piston rings, rod bearings, main bearings, and rebuilt head. The carburettors were rebuilt, the clutch assembly replaced and the gearbox was professionally rebuilt. The driveshaft was balanced and new U-joints installed. A stainless (Dick Ames) exhaust system is attached.

The braking system was reconditioned: the master brake cylinder sleeved, calipers rebuilt, new linings and brake hoses installed. The e-brake cable and linings were replaced.

A new under-bonnet wiring harness has been installed and recently the charging system has been upgraded by the installation of a Hitachi alternator. (Original components have been kept.)

The car sports a new BAS interior. New leather upholstery was attached over new foam cushions. The headliner, carpets and door panels have been renewed.

The original chrome wires are attractive and carry new Dunlop D60 185/65/15 tyres.

This is a turn-key car that can be driven as-is. Attention to minor details will enhance its appearance and prepare it for show. A protective car cover is included, as is an owner's manual. Receipts and photographs will be provided to support claims for work performed.

This car is located in British Columbia, Canada. It has a clear title and is clear of any liens or encumbrances.
