This attractive matching numbers UK specification right hand drive E-type 4.2 Roadster was built on 25-6-1969 and supplied new to London Jaguar Dealer Henlys. This is confirmed by a letter from Jaguar Cars in the history file.

During the 1980's the car was exported for use in Canada before the owner re-imported it back to the UK in August 1990 - still as a right hand drive car. The next lady owner kept the car from 1991-2015 covering only 3688 miles during this 24-year period; the mileage now shows 60,100 miles, which is believed to be correct.

In 2001 the car was treated to a comprehensive bare metal body shell restoration by the Imperial Motor Company of Dewsbury, this also included a new bonnet and wax-oiling all cavities and door shells.

During the past 12 months a further c.£9,000 has been lavished on the car with marque specialists including a full service, new engine and gearbox mounts, new front shock absorbers, new wire wheels and tyres, new stainless exhaust, new mohair hood and foot-well carpets.

The vendor states that the car drives very well with the steering, suspension and brakes performing correctly. The engine is also said to perform strongly exhibiting the correct oil pressure whilst the original black leather interior has a period correct patina.

This desirable UK specification matching numbers E-Type 4.2 roadster is accompanied by a Swansea V5C document.
