Description
 
This fine Series II E-Type is back with us after a nearly five year stay in Scotland, looking - and driving - better than ever. And judging by the attention it has attracted as we have driven around in it, the power of the E-Type to turn heads is undiminished. Our car started life in California and returned to the UK in 1991. It was given a fully documented body restoration by Renascence Cars of Warwickshire which included conversion to right-hand drive and retrimming to the original pattern in dark blue leather. In 1994 the engine was completely rebuilt by XK engine specialists VSE, with a lightweight flywheel and conversion to triple SU carbs. The speedometer was reset to zero when the car was UK registered and now shows just over 30,000 miles. The engine has done about 15,000 miles since the rebuild. The current owner had the paintwork refreshed about three years ago at a cost of £4500. He has also had a new clutch fitted about 3,000 miles ago and the brakes were overhauled this spring. Mostly though he has enjoyed E-type ownership to the full and it has provided reliable sporting motoring. It completed over 500 miles to our showroom without missing a beat. Although very smart, this is a car that can be used as Jaguar intended without feeling too precious about it. The interior now has a lovely lived-in feel and the body has picked up the odd mark and blemish, but you would be proud to take it anywhere. Structurally it is in excellent condition, thanks to the rustproofing measures carried out when it was restored. It drives beautifully, with cream smooth power delivery and taut steering and suspension and a light gear change. It is a true driver's car.
