The gleaming Clarendon blue paintwork presents very well throughout with only a handful of blemishes to report. The paint itself boasts a deep shine and is a very classy combination with the interior hue. All the brightwork appears in fantastic condition and really pops against the dark paintwork. The light clusters are all crystal clear and moisture-free. The blue soft top is in good order with no damage to the fabric or windows. A matching blue tonneau cover is also present which covers the soft top, keeping a clean and smart appearance.
The interior space is a very charming place to sit. The blue leather seats are in excellent condition, as are the centre console, door cards, and dashboard upholstered with blue vinyl. The three-spoke wooden Moto-Lita steering wheel really looks the part and feels beautiful in-hand to operate. Another charming period correct item to be found is the Becker Europa radio. The blue carpet and over-mats remain in excellent condition throughout the cabin with no damage to report. All switchgear, dials, and interior brightwork are found to be in fine fettle, operating exactly as they should.
At the heart of the E-type is the legendary 5.3-litre V12. Upon road test it is immediately clear how well this example has been maintained feeling tight and precise, pulling strong through each gear and climbing the rev range with ease. A huge amount of torque is also available, making this a very usable classic to drive in modern traffic. We have just had the car inspected, serviced, the power steering pump refurbished, and the coolant flushed.
The E-Type sits on 15-inch wire wheels, all presenting in great shape with little or no curb marking to speak of. The wheels are wrapped in high quality Pirelli tyres all round, each with ample tread remaining. The vented front discs provide ample stopping power, slowing the car quickly and in a straight line.
The E-Type was first registered in the UK in January 1973. It was subsequently purchased by a Doctor from Germany who, for many years, was the proud owner until 2015 when it was re-registered in the UK. Having spent most of its life in Europe the car is fitted with LHD headlights and a KM speedometer.
Within the large history file there is photographic evidence of an engine re-build and bodywork repairs dated 1991. There is a stack of invoices from Germany dating from 1990-2015.
