1971 JAGUAR E TYPE 2+2
There only original once! This Jaguar E Type has mostly been in storage for the past few decades. The car runs and drives and amazingly still has ice cold blowing air conditioning.
The car still sports and original factory paint and it shows pretty well. I think a polish and wax job and you're done. Personally, I would NOT repaint this car. How many survive with original paint? This car is also a matching numbers car. The motor matches and body.
The V12 starts right up and runs smooth and sounds distinctive. The past owner a few years ago put new tires on the car and an aluminum five core radiator with electric fans to keep the car running cool. He said the carbs were balanced too. The car will come with the original radiator.
This car not only sports original paint, but there is no rust through found anywhere. The original sheet metal is fabulous. The car was originally a California car, then New Mexico and only recently, Texas.
The body is extremely nice. There was a small bump in the nose atop the grill and some minor body work was done at some point to fix it. The drivers side bonnet has two small dents up front.
The Jag is leaking what I believe is power steering fluid. I also believe the valve covers are seeping oil onto the manifolds. At engine shut down, there is sometimes oil burn off coming from the bonnet louvers for a few minutes.
The transmission is an automatic and seems to shift as it should. The car shows 58,xxx miles. The speedometer cable seems bad and I don't know how long its been off line. By the looks of the brake pedal pad, I would guess the car has less the 100k on it. Some of the gauges work, some seem not actuate.
The wipers work, and original radio works and sounds pretty good. The horn works and turn signals. The brakes are good and the emergency brake grabs tight.
Inside the front leather bucket seats are dry and cracked up. I would re-upholster them. The dash has no cracks forward but one towards the glass.
The car comes with some extra parts and four never used carburetor kits. It will also come with several books and manuals etc. One is a large original hard cover book from the 70's. Likely worth a lot alone.
