What kind of emission system does this car have? Does it have an aluminum crossover over the cam covers at the rear of the engine?

Yes- the usual American specs including (unfortunately ) the 2 SU carbs, the aluminium crossover & the 3.54 back axel (which is pretty good for acceleration but results in a very laboured top speed - not good for the autobahn when everybody dirives at 100 MPH +).

Have now added a Classic Jaguar 5 Speed Transmission to the car which has reduced RPM by about 20%

Have you kept the 2 SU carbs? I own a similar US specs series 2 of same age and I am planning a conversion for the 3 carbs. Just wonder about the pros and cons.

Yes I still have the twin Su carbs but I am considering upgrading to the triple SU set up with an inlet manifold & linkages. However the cost vis a vis the improvement in horsepower is horrendous!

1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Roadster
SOLD for £35200

Engine No: 7R1172-9
Colour: Primrose Yellow

MOT: March 2010
The 1968 Primrose yellow Series 2 Roadster offered is a lefthand drive model that was re-imported from the USA in 1989. It is a manual car fitted with black leather interior. The vendor claims to have spent £30,000 on the car (supporting invoices are apparently available) in the 10 years he has owned it. The many upgrades fitted are said to include: a classic Jaguar Houston 5-speed gearbox, mohair hood, new leather seats and interior, MWS/Dayton wire wheels, two electric fans, Becker radio and cassette player, Motolita steering wheel, lightweight starter motor, aluminium flywheel. Graz dampers all round, a Rob Beere anti-roll bar, Lumenition ignition system, electronic fuel pump, fire extinguisher, electronic clock and (just last year), four new Pirelli tyres.
In recent times the E-Type has been looked after by Colin Ford (JEC E-Type Guru) and is said by the vendor to have "excellent" coachwork, "first class" paintwork, transmission and interior trim and "good" engine and electrical equipment.
