The car I’ve wanted to own since a friend of my Dad’s gave me a ride in one when I was 14 years old. I remember to this day riding a city bus at 15 years old and passing a used classic car dealership and seeing a black E Type in showroom window selling for $3000.00. Which, in the early 70’s as I sat in the bus I thought I could swing. Well it took a little longer than I thought and a little more money. The car is a solid driver. It is a Series II E type Jaguar with the 4.2 liter engine, twin SU carbs and factory air conditioning. It’s no show car but should be something to work on for the winter and be a decent driver. First, to get the car to start easier, it’s very cold blooded. The silver color is not the original color, the car was shipped from Coventry England to Detroit Michigan in Willow Green, a very light almost pastel green. Which is probably why the car is silver today.
