1966, Finished in Carmen Red with Black interior. An original U.K. R.H.D model with interesting history.
E Type enthusiasts will remember or of heard of Chris Harvey, Fleet Street journalist and author of many fantastic motoring books of various makes, but predominantly Jaguar. Chris' most famous book was 'End of an Era' written not long after the E Type ceased production. Chris owned a few E Types and had a real passion for them and this particular car was his all-time favourite, owning it until his sudden death back in the mid-90s.
The original engine blew up on a fast run just outside Paris in the 80s, which is when Chris decided to fit his genuine E Type lightened and balance 3.8 litre engine of which the car retains to this day. Further upgrades include wider competition chrome wire wheels and upgraded front brakes.
An older restoration with a excellent mellowed look.
