For many, the Series II Jaguar E-Type represents a great combination of design, practicality and value for money. Unveiled in October 1968, the model included improvements in safety and emissions standards to comply with US market regulations, providing such practicalities as fully-reclining seats with headrests, recessed door handles and one-piece bumpers. Under the bonnet, the 4,235cc 6-cylinder OHC engine had been carried over from the previous series but now featured improved cooling and better brakes. The result was a purposeful and practical sports car, especially in the four-seater layout of the 2+2 Coupe.

Finished in red with black interior this original RHD example, 1 of just 1040 built, has been in the current ownership since 1976. Registering some 78,000 miles on its odometer, XUT 785J benefits from manual transmission together with a sunroof and sits on steel wheels. Recently emerging from a lengthy period of storage, it is offered for sale as a worthwhile and potentially rewarding restoration project.
