E-Type &Sports Cars dicovered in 2017 this OBL in Italy. We were looking for an ‘special ‘ E-Type for a customer. He wanted one ofthe first cars out of the Jaguar E-Type range. He liked to do a high-end ‘Dutch ‘ restoration and bring the car back to its original specs and glory.
The body has been refinished in Cream with a black soft top and a new red interior. Power comes from a rebuilt 3.8-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and equipment includes 15″ wire wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, split chrome bumpers, a vented bonnet with welded louvers and outside latches, triple windshield wipers, carpeted floor mats, textured aluminum interior trim.
The cabin was trimmed in red leather from the factory and was re-trimmed with upholstery sourced from BAS in England.
The steering wheel features an aluminum structure with a wood rim and frames. The five-digit mechanical odometer shows 82k miles, only driven sparely after shakedown miles.
This matching # car comes in its original specifications cream exterior color with a red interior and a black soft top. The restoration is (photo) documented
