SOLD - 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 FHC Manual RHD
1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 FHC manual right hand drive in its original combination of Old English White paintwork with light green/gray interior. Originally delivered new in the USA, it was imported to Australia in 2018.
The car has undergone an extensive cosmetic and mechanical recommissioning process over the past 12 months (including conversion to RHD by a highly respected Sydney Jaguar specialist) with much time and money spent to ensure the car looks and goes as well as it should. Currently registered in NSW on club plates, which are not transferable.
Owned by the one family for approx. 40 years (or possibly longer), the car appears to have spent much of its life in the state of Texas. Over $40,000 USD was spent on repairs and maintenance over the past 12 years by the previous owner, which includes the rebuilding and fitting of a replacement 4.2 engine in 2007. All the receipts will be included with the car.
- Air conditioning (not currently connected)

- Re-padded and re-upholstered seats in 2008

The car looks, sounds, and goes really well, and is ready to drive away.
This car represents good buying for the true enthusiast looking to snare a solid, presentable Series 1 FHC. The financial commitments of building a new house reluctantly means the car has to go.
