The Interior

Wood and leather in tidy condition

Elegant Moto-Lita steering wheel

Aftermarket stereo system

The interior of an E-Type is an evocative place to be, and the fun part is that it has an entirely different character depending on whether you’ve got the roof up or down. With the roof raised, you’re hunkered down inside, cocooned in simple elegance and ready to power across continents; lower the hood and suddenly life becomes light and airy, with endless reserves of fresh air to artfully rearrange your hair.

The interior of this E-Type is in very good condition indeed; the seats are as supportive as they should be and tilt forward correctly to allow access to the rear storage. The leather is nice with no rips, holes or excessive wear, just a gentle patina that wholly befits its age. The carpets are in good condition, and so are the doorcards.

The dash-top is free from cracks, and the dash is tidy with unfaded wood – the gauges and switchgear are all present and correct and appear to be fully functional. The Moto-Lita steering wheel is a period-appropriate touch, and the only modern addition is an Alpine CD head unit and speakers.

Inside the boot it’s dry and clean, with a decent carpet. Underneath the boot floor we find a correct spare wire wheel, along with a brand new mallet for the knock-off spinners.

The Exterior

Very desirable colour scheme

Tasteful wire wheels

Good hood

The metallic Graphite Grey paint suits the E-Type beautifully, and it’s all in really lovely condition here with no evident scuffs, scratches, chips or marks. The chrome is all present and correct, and gleams wonderfully, and the car is fitted with a set of wire wheels in tidy condition, with Avon Turbospeed tyres on the fronts and Vredestein Sport Classics on the rear. All of the correct trim and badges are in place, the light lenses are all in good condition, and so is the windscreen.

The roof is good, with a nice clear window pane and no holes aside from a small one on the passenger side; it raises, secures and lowers as it should (with just one broken fixing to the exterior). Panel fit is neat throughout, and we see no evidence of corrosion to the exterior. It’s a very well presented and extremely tidy E-Type.

The Mechanicals

Smooth V12 engine

Slick manual gearbox

There are few driving experiences more pleasing than cruising around London in a V12 Jag, and this E-Type is very happy to oblige. Started from cold, it fired up without issue and settled into a steady idle, the gauges swiftly registering the correct pressures and temperatures.

The engine pulls strongly and feels like it’s nicely in balance without any histrionics from the carbs, and the manual transmission is slick and precise, even from cold. The brakes are reassuringly strong and pull the car up in a straight line, while the suspension feels supple and planted and allows the Jag to handle with the trademark E-Type smoothness without any untoward noises. It really is a very pleasant thing to drive, acting just as a V12 E-Type should – it’s impossible not to smile.

Winning Offer £79,000
