VIN: VDIS21532

 

I have owned the car for 14 years and am the second owner.  The 1st owner of this vehicle was a University Professor.  The car has been restored.  To my knowledge, the odometer reading shows the mileage on the rebuilt engine.  It has been repainted, but is the original color, both exterior and interior.  It has a new top, which has never been down.  Original Dunlop whitewall tires.

 

This car has won 1st place in four different Jaguar concours events in the championship class, as well as several other awards in local shows.  It has always been garaged and covered.  It is driven only occasionally and never on a rainy day.  It has never been in an accident to my knowledge.  I have taken care of it the same as the first owner, very carefully.  All numbers match.  Work done on it in the last few years are: new fuel pump.  Rear seals and new brakes.  Color is sable with cinnamon interior.  To my knowledge, the only thing that is not original is the radio.  It has a very tastefully done radio/cd player that turns to a flat panel when the ignition is turned off.  The car is a local car, having been sold at Sports Car Centre in Tacoma, and has never left the area.  This is a beautiful example of a rare, classic E-type.  Runs and drives beautifully.
