Car to be at auction 1/14
www.bonhams.com/auctions/21392/lot/148/

Auction description:
Lot 148
1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Liter Series II Roadster
US$ 80,000 - 100,000
€58,000 - 73,000
Chassis no. 1R 7088
Engine no. 7R 1208-9

*Long history of California ownership
*Matching numbers example
*Originally delivered to California
*Sparingly driven in recent years
*Recent paint and brand new interior

Built on August 14, 1968 according to factory records, this charming E-Type Open Two Seater was dispatched just over one month later to Jaguar Cars, New York, eventually finding its first owner out West, a Mr. Edwin Gabay of Glendale, California. It appears the Jaguar remained on the West Coast; its prior owner, of Big Bear, California, acquired the car in 1998 and was under the impression he was only the car's third owner. Apparently a garage queen for many years, the Jaguar has been driven sparingly since then.

Originally finished in Daimler Silver Grey over black upholstery with a matching black top, this left-hand-drive Roadster is understood to have had its engine and drivetrain rebuilt during 1997-1998 and has seen few miles since. The matching numbers engine is reportedly the high-compression European-spec version with the gold head and triple SU carburetors in place of (American spec) twin Strombergs.

In recent years, the Jaguar was finished in the period-correct shade of primrose yellow that it currently wears, and a new black leather interior has just been installed. Offered with a tool kit and an extensive file of receipts documenting its restoration, this lovely Series II E-Type is an attractive example of the breed, boasting a long history of California ownership.
