P1R 13949 was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar works on June 1, 1970 as a LHD open two-seater, wearing Signal Red paintwork over Black upholstery and matching top. The E-Type was dispatched on July 15, 1970 and delivered new to Nicaragua Machinery Co. of Managua, Nicaragua - as verified by Jaguar Heritage Trust and displayed in an elegant embossed leather binder. The chassis no. prefix "P" denotes the car was originally fitted with power steering, which was typically coupled with air conditioning, also indicated by the reverse mounted alternator on this particular Roadster.

The Jaguar made its way stateside, where eventually it would receive a complete restoration by Chicago Restorations early in the new millennium. Now wearing an opposite, yet incredibly striking livery of Black paintwork over a Red cabin and black top. The exterior's paint and brightwork are both glossy and very presentable for casual show or spirited touring. Correct in form, the pampered interior features leather seating and vinyl surrounds, along with a proper Becker Europa II radio (newly restored), Leaper lap belts, and supplemental AMCO rubber floor mats. A 15-inch steering wheel - correct in original appearance, but slightly smaller, offers ease of entry to the captain's chair. The vinyl top shows well and tight with clear window and a matching boot cover for open motoring. Chrome wire wheels are complemented by new 185R15 Coker Classic Redline tires and Michelin tubes.

Both the engine bay and luggage compart are exceptionally tidy and generally correct in form, equipment, finishes and decals. The rear contains a matching spare tire assembly, while the front retains its numbers-matching engine. The driving feel is as one would imagine - sporty, tight and very responsive. A recent January 2020 inspection, tune-up and scheduled maintenance addressed a top-end (cylinder head) rebuilt, along with associated gaskets, hardware, hoses, filters and fluids. As well as new battery, tires, ignition and intake components for continued excellent road manners.

We offer this striking and very late XKE Series II OTS Roadster for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
