Car was at auction 3/17
1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 Roadster
Sold for £72,060 (US$ 89,324) inc. premium
Goodwood Members' Meeting
19 Mar 2017, 14:00 GMT
Registration no. TKG 78H
Chassis no. 1R 1571
*Present ownership since 1984
*Circa 52,000 miles from new
*Exceptional history file
This E-Type Series 2 Roadster had had only two owners from new. The car was delivered in 1970 to surgeon Mr T D H Gray of Birkenhead, who kept it until it was sold to the lady vendor's late husband in July 1984. The recorded mileage when purchased was 34,500 and is now 52,000. 'TKG 78H' has been fastidiously cared for, always kept in a heated garage, and never driven in the rain.
Sitting on newly refurbished wire wheels shod with nearly new tyres, the E-Type runs well, displaying good oil pressure; some body panels have been replaced in the past, and the car presents well. The history file is quite exceptional, containing every maintenance bill from 1984 to the present day, and MoT certificates dating back to 1982. Very rarely does a low-mileage, few-owners E-Type Roadster appear on the open market, making this exceptional example an opportunity not to be missed.
