Jaguar E Type – Series 2 – 1969

The E-Type was already 5 years in production before Jaguar came out with a 2+2 model , additional to the 2 person FHC. The longer wheelbase allowed the application of the Borg Warner automatic gearbox to fulfill the demand on the American market. The higher roofline and the increased volume made the car more practical for owners longer than 1.80 meter and families with children or hobbies asking for more space in the car. Jaguar listened to the requirements in the market and the 2+2 outsold the 2 person FHC in the period 1966-1970 by far, with 10.915 to 7.366 cars. Of the series 1 E-Type with the covered headlights produced in 1966, 2.627 were 2+2. And another 1.284 were built in 1967. In the first months of 1967 came the open headlights in the series 1.5 and late 1968 the series two with larger indicator lights and different bumpers and double carbs. This E-Type is a series 2 example. According to the Heritage Certificate it is produced in 1969 , sent to the Jaguar importer in New York who distributed it to California where it was delivered by a local Jaguar Dealer, to the first owner. I bought this car from a aircraft mechanic. It is not a show car or trailer queen. Just an honest example of truly great drivers car. Matching numbers with heritage certificate. British Racing Green with tan interior. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
