Seen on ebay, 5/2003. Ad reads:
"Devised to turn the E-Type into a more practical Grand Touring car, the 2+2 was introduced in 1966. It allowed the family man to indulge the joys of Jaguar sports car ownership, guilt-free, since it featured an--albeit small--rear seat suitable for the little ones.
Unlike the earlier Coupe, the 2+2 was available with amenities like automatic transmission, power steering, and air conditioning. The more spacious interior, namely the vastly improved headroom, made Jag motoring a more civilised affair.
It's a little-known fact that the 2+2 Series II, introduced in the summer of 1968, featured a radically improved windshield design. The glass acquired more of a rake, its base moved forward almost to the edge of the bonnet. A very smooth, harmonious look was the result, making the 2+2 almost impossible to distinguish from its two-seater sibling.
The fabulous E-Type for auction here is an original, low-mileage California car, currently registered, featuring vintage, six-digit, blue-and-yellow license plates. It spent most of its adult life in dry and sunny Palm Springs, and is completely rust free!
Yes, I know, it's almost unheard of, but this car does not have any rust. Not surprising, perhaps, when you live in the desert and only see an inch of rain per year; nevertheless, it's a rare occurrence to find a rust-free classic E-Type. This one has never had rust, never needed any rust repair, and it's free of non-factory undercoating.
Additionally, the car has never been in an accident, and that's guaranteed!
Built in October of 1969, this Series II features the new crossflow radiator and other improvements to the cooling system, making it behave more docile in everyday traffic.
The heart of the cat, its dual overhead cam, 4.2-liter straight six engine, is an engineering masterpiece. Designed by Walter Hassan in the immediate post-WW II period, this engine should find use below the bonnet of innumerable Jaguars well into the 1990s.
This one is the original, matching numbers power plant. It looks great and runs even better, with tremendous oil pressure, cold as well as hot, without overheating, and no oil leaks worth mentioning.
Recent mechanical work performed included replacing the shocks all around and a transmission rebuild, including installation of a new torque converter. The air conditioning system was retrofitted to R134 Freon, and blows ice cold. All this was done less than 200 miles ago, to the tune of over $4,400.00. Here's one cool cat that purrs while it's pawing the pavement!
So, she starts, runs, shifts, and handles great, but how about the brakes, you may ask?
No problem here, either! Fitted with large GIRLING calipers (instead of the old Lockheed units) the much-improved Series II binders are legendary performers. The driving experience is unequalled!
Let's take a closer look at the smooth Jag's exterior. Bodywork is straight, panel fit excellent. Painted once in its factory original light blue color, there are a few nicks and chips here and there, notably near the tip of the bonnet where a bra had been mounted; these flaws do not amount to much, though, and don't take away from the car's inherent beauty. Wherever you take this stylish Coupe, thumbs up gestures and favorable comments will follow suit. The inner trunk and hood sections still display original paint and look great. Some of the weatherstripping is starting to dry out a bit; chrome is very nice, glass is perfect all the way around.
The cabin exudes the proverbial Jaguar charme, with fine, dark blue leather, SMITHS gauges, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and countless lovingly conceived details. Front seats have been reupholstered with correct hide covers and look new. Door panels and dash top are perfect.
Philips AM/FM radio works fine.
Check out the embroidered floor mats! Dark blue carpeting looks wonderful.
Classic Jaguar instruments and horn push with beautiful badge. Odometer shows 92,210 miles, which indicates the original mileage of the car. Doing the math, that's less than 2,800 miles driven annually since 1969, on average!
Light gray wool headliner is original, in excellent condition, and bears mute witness to the cat's pampered past.
Another 2+2 exclusive: the rear seat. Seat back folds forward when not in use to create a most generous luggage area, making the 2+2 the most practical E-Type. Original leather has some patina to it.
Note the rear seat belts.
Fully lined trunk is accessible through large rear hatch. Note the PVC covers for lock and hinges, designed to protect valuable cargo. Below the trunk floor, the spare wire wheel, lead hammer, and knock-off tool rest in a small compartment.
Five brand-new 72-spoke chrome knock-off wire wheels have just been installed at considerable cost. They are shod with equally expensive, new MICHELIN X Redline tires of the correct 185-15 dimension.
I've taken the big cat through its paces on several occasions lately, and she's a pure pleasure to pilot. A low-mileage, rust and accident free California E-Type, with loads of style and an added dash of practicality, she's a great investment and lots of fun to own.
This '69 XK-E needs nothing but an appreciative new owner. Should you become the winning bidder, just come to beautiful Laguna Beach and drive her home. I guarantee you'll have the time of your life!
