Presented here is 'SVR 356H', a left-hand drive export Series II E-type that had resided in the USA until 2014 before being repatriated back into the UK and has been in current ownership since 2015 with the odometer currently displaying just over 78,000 credible miles. Finished in Silver, the interior is an attractively complementing black leather with a vinyl soft-top. Being an export model for the USA, the car has the front and rear protective chrome bumper over-riders and is offered on E-Type wire wheels with knock-off hubs which have been fitted in the current ownership. Retaining its original Stromberg-carburetted engine, the condition of this Roadster reflects a fair degree of remedial work and some restoration over the years and the engine and chassis have the correct numbers. A rear brake overhaul was carried out in 2018 with other work including a new battery and an oil change in 2021 and a new clutch back in 2014.

Its accompanying paperwork includes a collection of 1970s invoices from Pontiac Sports Car, Inc. of Michigan on behalf of one-time keeper Sherman Barton. There is also one from Complete Auto restorations, LLC of Michigan on behalf of the last American owner, Edward Anthony Wujek II. This attractive E-Type is one of 7,853 LHD S2 Roadsters produced and is now being offered complete with a collection of invoices from its residence in the USA, a collection of old MOTs, an owner's wallet with handbook, shipping documents, routine maintenance chart, US distributor book, letter from the DVLA regarding the UK registration, current V5C and an MOT valid into April of 2023.

PLEASE NOTE: A set of 4 steel wheels are aslo included in the sale.
