This is a superb driving, ultra-usable and very genuine UK supplied, matching numbers Jaguar E-Type Roadster that's still in its original factory colours of Willow Green with Black leather upholstery. OOV 996G was manufactured on the 28th October 1968 and supplied new by Birmingham dealer P J Evans and comes with an impressive history dating back to the mid 1970's. The Jaguar was in the hands of a Sutton Coldfield based antiques dealer during the early 1970's and in 1975 sold to a Staffordshire based owner who kept the E-Type for 19 years. In 1994, the E-Type was sold by the E-Type Centre to a Jaguar enthusiast in Wakefield and after 22 years of ownership the car was sold to the most recent owner, a retired motor engineer who lived just a few streets away. This very genuine original car has had just three owners in 44 years and has been driven over to us faultlessly from West Yorkshire. When the E-Type was purchased by its Staffordshire based owner in 1975, the E-Type had covered 63,000 miles in just seven years. In 1979 the car was subject of substantial restoration work to include a new bonnet, new underbody floor pans, new sills, a complete re-paint in the cars original colour (invoice from 1979 on file), re-trim as per original, renewed chrome work and during the early 1980's was treated to an engine rebuild with the mileage at 80,000 by this point. A large file of Martin Robey invoices are on file throughout the 1980's and the engine rebuild was completed by Autosprint Racing Engines in Birmingham. The engine was treated to new pistons, main and big end bearings, re-ground crankshaft, performance camshaft, cam bearings, cam followers, new valve guides, lightened flywheel, new oil pump and timing chain. Remarkably, whilst maintaining regular but very low usage, the E-Type has only covered 8000 miles since its mid 1980's engine rebuild, all verified in the vehicle history file. From 1994 to 2016 with its next owner, the E-Type covered 5000 miles with MOT's and tax discs on file showing the car was in annual use. Over this period the car was subject of regular expenditure with invoices on file for upkeep and maintenance. In 1994 the E-Type was treated to further bodywork, wheel arches were taken back to bare metal and treated to repairs and paintwork as necessary. Invoices throughout the 1990's detail various mechanical work to the braking, suspension, steering, electric and fuel system and in 2008 The Hutson Motor Company rebuilt the carburettors, fitted new steering rack mountings, fitted a new fuel pump and replaced the bonnet struts. In 2015 shortly before selling the car after 22 years of ownership, over 2000 was spent on new engine mountings, new fulcrum shaft bearings, new rear hub inner seals, various new ignition items, new filters, new choke and speedo cables. In 2016 the most recent owner purchased the E-Type and has covered around 1000 faultless miles in the car. As a retired motor engineer with ramp facilities at home, the car was treated to a thorough going over to include removal of the rear subframe cage which was subsequently rebuilt with new brakes and suspension springs. OOV 996G has driven over 60 miles to us and performed faultlessly. The engine is incredibly strong and fit, it holds excellent oil pressure, is very impressive under load offering brilliant performance and cooling remains correct. The E-Type sat for sometime in York traffic on route to us and remained at correct temperature. The E-Type holds the road superbly, braking is sharp and efficient, and the car offers a fabulous driving experience. OOV 996G presents very well and as an honest original car. Paintwork is now over 30 years old and has a lovely deep shine and patina. The bodywork is of a very good standard and the various blemishes and imperfections really highlight what an honest, older restoration this really is. The bonnet is structurally outstanding and the 1994 waxoyl is still in place, still doing its job. This is a really solid, straight and usable car and is a great basis for improvement but also ideal for putting into immediate regular use or long distance touring. The hood is excellent, the chrome work and chrome wire wheels are superb and the interior having been last trimmed in the 1970's looks nicely aged, honest and naturally has a true patina. All the gauges work, the car appears very correct and it most certainly will not disappoint if looking for a usable, genuine UK E-Type. This really is a great buy; its in a superb rare period colour, it drives beautifully, it comes with excellent provenance, history, matching numbers and is offered onto the market a very sensible price. Price: 89,995
