Series 2 Jaguar E-Types that were produced from 1969 to 1971 can be identified by their open headlights that no longer have glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators that have moved under the heavier bumpers and the tail lights which also moved below the rear bumper. The cooling is much improved helped by the enlarged ‘mouth'', Series 2 cars also feature twin electric fans and finally uprated brakes. The engine is easily identified by the change from smooth polished cam covers to ones with a ribbed appearance, yet the original triple SU carburettors remain. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned with flick switches being substituted by rocker switches to meet U.S regulations. This striking fixed-head E Type Coupé has a certain look about it. It sits really well in an almost poised fashion and has a character that many imported cars lack. The car is reported to have had only three owners from new and has seemingly travelled just 52,500 miles in its time. Though a little thick in places, the Carmen Red paint is completed to a high finish. Were it mine I''d mop the paint back to curb any of the orange peel effect that may follow. The chrome-work is in all round good condition, and the door, bonnet and boot shuts are excellent. The interior is absolutely as original though perhaps looking a little untidy in places. Again, were it mine I''d consider re-colonising the seats to preserve its current patina. Mechanically, the car behaves very well. The matching numbers engine sounds strong, shows good pressure and is a pleasure to drive. This is perhaps in part due to the addition of triple SU carburettors which improve the pick-up and performance greatly. There is lots of history that accompanies this car, most notably, a host of invoices relating to restorative works from 1996 - 2000. More than $30,000 was spent in this period and the result is very pleasing. Most recently, new wire wheels and tyres and been fitted. Imported from the USA in September of 2012 but with full EU taxes paid, this car has American title and a full UK MoT to February 2014 making it ready for registration.
