I guarantee that while you''re reading this, two other guys are already drooling over this 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II OTS. Impressive bodywork, a freshly overhauled 4.2 liter inline-six, and a manual transmission mean that the price is outrageously low. It just ain''t gonna last. I think every car guy''s list of the ten most beautiful cars of all time would include the E-Type roadster. Values in the past few years have skyrocketed as collectors grab up the best examples, knowing that the basket cases rust in the most demonic ways possible. As a result, cars like this are always in demand because someone else has already spent a fortune making it right. Fit and finish are extremely good, with excellent gaps, even at the edges of the massive hood which can always be problematic. Series II cars offer several improvements such as a bigger grille opening and open headlights, but didn''t get the clunky bumpers of the Series III models, making them some of the best choices for enthusiasts who like to drive their hardware. And speaking of bumpers, the chrome on this car is quite nice, the bumpers fit flush to the body, and the marker lights are all clear and bright (no Lucas jokes, please). With more than $4200 spent recently on the interior, it looks every bit as gorgeous as the artists at Coventry intended when it was built. Supportive bucket seats, a new center console, and correct wool carpets make the interior every bit as dramatic as the bodywork. Timeless Smiths gauges are a British auto industry tradition, and a new wood steering wheel is like a work of art, and you''ll be thrilled to see it''s also been cleverly retrofitted as quick-release setup. It only takes a few moments to remove the wheel, giving you plenty of extra room in the cabin to get situated before you turn the key. The long row of rocker switches are another E-Type tradition, although the modern AM/FM/CD stereo is a big improvement over the original. The brand new black canvas top, complete with glass rear window, hides under a new correct boot, and the boot (that''s the trunk to us Yanks) is immaculately finished with the original spare wire wheel and jack assembly. Most Jaguar enthusiasts prefer the six to the V12, and the 4.2 in the Series II is perhaps the best of the bunch. Enlarged to improve torque for American buyers, it still loves to rev and makes the most scintillating sounds at full throttle. With more than $8600 in recent mechanical receipts, the engine was fully overhauled and features a new water pump, radiator, and thermostat, rebuilt distributor and electronic ignition system, a fresh fuel pump, and a refurbished gas tank out back. There''s a new clutch ahead of the 4-speed manual transmission, and all four brake discs and their respective pads were replaced. In fact, the independent suspension was rebuilt and there''s a new exhaust system that provides the most bone-chilling soundtrack this side of Lemans. Gorgeous chrome wire wheels are the perfect finishing touch on a Jaguar of this caliber, and wear 205/70/15 radials for the right tall profile to fill the wheel arches properly. So while you''re looking at this, bear in mind that the E-Type is red hot right now and this one is obviously priced to sell. If you''re even remotely interested, call now because I guarantee this one won''t be here for long. This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
