1969 Jaguar E-Type black leather Additional Info:

  • Impressive '69 E Type with large history file since virtually new . The car was originally sold by Baker motor, Atlanta and remained with the owner until resold in 1977. It stayed in the metro Atlanta area where it was restored over a lengthy periodusing original parts supplied from the UK . NO RUST repairs were needed and extensive documentation receipts and packets of "old style" photos accompany the car .
  • Car is numbers matching, comes with original engine and gearbo, the only modifications made are the triple carb setup as found on the series 1 car, and the use of a Jaguar XJ6 series 111 cylinder head that has the larger valve, both improve performance, and the original head, carbs and inlet manifold are included with the car . Car was stored for 20 years before being revived in 2012 by Speedwell Cars ( A British classic car restoration shop in GA) and mileage based on records is believed to be correct .
  • On reviving the car from its lengthy sleep prior to my purchase in early 201, the following was done :
  • Remove fuel tank, fuel pum, replace filter, lines and boil tank . Remove carbs and rebuild.
  • Remove cylinder hea, perform valve job, install hardened exhaust valve seats, exhaust manifolds ceramic coated. Checked all for integrity and reinstall with new gaskets.
  • Full fluids change, flushing of all lines, new filter, new hoses. lube and grease all fittings, replaced four ball-joint gators.
  • New battery, new tires - Vredstein H rated 185HR15 Sprint .
  • Engine compression 150lb all 6 cylinders.
  • Complete check of electric, operational functionality and road testing.
The car starts easily and settles into a nice idl, oilpressure around 40 psi at warm idle, the clutch engages exactly as it shoul, car accelerates easily and purposefully . the original 4 speed gearbox is very smooth . No rattles,squeaks, just silken power and instantaneous response. Steering is tight and suspension compliant, a very nice ride . Brakes workperfectl, car stops quickly in a straight line. The interior is very nice, the black leather is suppl, seats are comfortabl, dash, steering wheel and interior door panels are really nice.The paint is now nearly 30 years old but shows beautifull, there are a few small blemishes in the finish, in a few places (white spots shown in the photos,) but hard to see unless up very close, and in now way detract from the overall impressions of the ca, she is beautiful !Reason for selling as it was a present for my wife who loves her Range Rover and has not driven it in nearly 5 years !! I start the car and occasionally drive he, she has recently been serviced and checked out by our European car specialist garage, found to be in fantastic rust free shape with a clean undercarriag, so feelconfident this is a really good and "no excuses" Jaguar . She can be driven or shipped anywhere ( I will helpcoordinate shipping ).
