  • Full Eagle GT specification
    34,825 miles from new
    Ohlins suspension

  • Corrosion free Californian import
    Can be returned to left drive
    Stunningly restored in the UK

  • Full detailed UK history
    Stunning colour combination

A stunning and highly appealing Series 1 roadster in Opalescent Dark Green with a dark green mohair hood and hood bag.

  • The interior is upholstered in Jaguar Suede Green and the entire combination is extremely beautiful and looks very special. It has undergone extensive Eagle treatment and boasts and exciting GT specification including Ohlins suspension.

    This was already an exceptional rust free Californian E-Type with just 17,400 miles when imported to the UK in 1991. Having spent many years dormant in America age had however taken its toll on its overall brightness and presentation so the entire car was re-finished on arrival to our shores. No nut was left unturned and it stands today in supreme condition.

    During restoration the body was stripped back to bare metal and it received a compromise free modern paint process to a standard far exceeding the original. It also benefitted from a cavity wax program that has maintained the bodywork in perfect condition.

    The engine, and in fact all the mechanicals, were comprehensively stripped as cautionary measure due to its time idle and they were all discovered to be in perfect order. It was expertly re-assembled having been thoroughly examined, cleaned and tweaked as beneficial and, as with the bodywork, the components have all been fettled and finished to a better standard than when it passed through the Jaguar factory gates in 1966.

  • Of course, all the rubber components and parts liable to deterioration over the course of time where replaced and it has subsequently benefitted from some very sensible and useful upgrades including a set of extra wide chrome wire wheels with perforance tyres.

    It has been rebuilt as right hand drive but can be converted back to left if so desired.

    The history is well documented since the restoration and every MOT is present which confirms the mileage today of just 34,825 miles from new.
