As the successor to the XK150, the Jaguar E-Type became something of a phenomenon as soon as it was launched at Geneva in 1961. The futuristic aerodynamic body design became a style icon of the Sixties, and powered initially by its predecessors 3.8, six cylinder XK engine, the E-Type was indeed the epitome of all grand touring sports cars. 1969 saw the arrival of the Series II models, with a subtly updated design (such as a wrap-around rear bumper and open headlamps), improved cooling and braking systems, and the 4.2 litre engine that was first implemented in the 1964 Series I.

This home market original right hand drive Series II 4.2 Roadster has been the subject of what can only be described as a concours standard, nut and bolt restoration, which would be difficult to fault or indeed replicate. Adam Wells of Bude produced the stand-out feature, the exceptional paintwork (in Gunmetal metallic) and also carried out the electrical work

We understand that the bodywork renovation and other work was carried out by WatJag Ltd in the Peak District. The E-Type is equipped with a new five speed Broadspeed T5 gearbox, along with a completely new uprated braking system and a new front and rear suspension. It sits on new Blockley 205x70 VR15 radial ply tyres fitted to new 6.5 x 15 polished stainless steel wire wheels. A new wiring loom has been fitted, together with an electronic ignition distributor and sports coil, and a stainless steel exhaust system. Concealed under the dashboard is a digital electronic radio aerial for the Retro Sound digital radio unit (with SD/USB/AUX-IN). WatJag Ltd also comprehensively rebuilt and upgraded the engine.

The leather upholstery, Wilton carpets, interior trims, dashboard, Moto-Lita wood rimmed steering wheel, mohair hood, hood frame, tonneau cover and brightwork are all new replacements. It is also worth noting that as much attention has been paid to the underside of the Jaguar, which is in superb order.

BAL 530H is supplied with an indoor car cover and a large history folder, detailing the ownership history and the vehicle history, together with MOT test records dating back to 1985 (when the mileage was 11552; the odometer reading is now 17200). Also included is a large quantity of invoices and a detailed breakdown of the engine reconditioning, engine electrics, carburettors and fuel system, braking system, suspension and ancillaries, together with wiring diagrams, a Jaguar lubrication chart, Retro Sound radio instructions, a handbook, the photograph album of restoration, various parts catalogues, a Haynes workshop manual and the V5C registration certificate.

A rare opportunity to purchase an E-Type Roadster in truly outstanding condition, which has had little use since its restoration.
