absolutely beautiful, mechanically excellent, numbers matching 1970 Jaguar E-Type FHC (Fixed Head Coupe) that’s had only two owners from new, accruing a mere ­­­­­­71,404 original miles in its 45 years of service. Finished in ever-refined and factory correct Pale Primrose over its original Black leather interior, this is undeniably one of the finest examples of a Series II E-Type we’ve ever come across.

Acquired by the second owner in 1974, he would enjoy the car in its original state for nearly 20 years before commissioning an extensive exterior restoration with marque expert Lindley Restorations, Ltd. of Pottstown, Pennsylvania to the tune of more than $20,000 ($32k in today’s dollars). The restoration was performed at the very highest level, most notably (amongst a laundry list of refurbishments) including a bare metal refinishing of the car’s original Pale Primrose paintjob as well as a complete restoration of the car’s undercarriage with all of the requisite metal work. Since completion of the restoration, the second owner has cared for and maintained the car to a fanatical level, resulting in the exceptional example offered here today.
