  • Registration Number
    11800 Miles





11,802 recorded miles and a matching numbers example- New mohair hood, exhaust system and Michelin tyres- Offered with hard top, heritage certificate; reproduction handbook and workshop manual plus collection of invoicesFurther info:With just 11,802 miles to its name, this 50 year-old matching numbers E-Type is barely run in! It started life as a lefthand drive export model that was dispatched to British Leyland New York on May 3, 1969 and was finished in Primrose Yellow teamed with contrasting Black interior trim and hood - ie the same livery in which the car is very smartly presented today. It was repatriated to the UK in 2014 and at some stage has benefited from having its power-strangling Stromberg carburettors replaced by a trio of UK specification SUs, and the steering wheel moved from left to right. Among the accompanying documents is a letter from the Illinois-based keeper who retained the Jaguar from 1986 to 2014, which details his tenure; including the long periods of storage that account for the car's abnormally low mileage. Also included in the sale are: a hard top that's been both repainted and retrimmed; heritage certificate; reproduction handbook and workshop manual; V5C; and collection of invoices. Clearly the subject of ongoing maintenance over time, 'NNB 259G' boasts a previously retrimmed interior; brake and suspension overhaul, including new bushes; and new mohair hood, exhaust system and Michelin tyres. The Jaguar was also repainted as recently as last year.The E-Type's engine size was increased from 3.8 to 4.2-litres in October 1964. With the change came a sweeter all-synchromesh gearbox, better brakes and more comfortable seats. What are retrospectively known as Series 2 cars were launched in 1968 - they featured a number of modifications required by the Federal market, eg: exposed headlamps, collapsible steering column, safety rocker switches for the facia, larger bumpers and revised side, stop and flasher lamps. Though currently less sought after than Series 1 examples, Series 2 models are in fact a better all-round package, as you'd expect from the improvements they embody.
