Registered in May 1975, making it one of the last E-types to be sold (as production had stopped in June 1974), this 5343cc V12-engined Jaguar is now showing 44,197 miles on its odometer. The vendor acquired it from a friend who had owned it for eight years but hardly used it during that time. 

As an historic vehicle, the car no longer requires annual MoT testing; its last expired in September 2015 after having been tested the previous year at 43,924 miles. A full restoration was completed in 2011, with over 360 images included in the large history folder. In 2011, at 40,208 miles, the Jaguar was valued for insurance purposes at £85,000 in A1 condition. The car is described as running well with no known issues, and has been stored indoors when not in use. A new battery has recently been fitted. The E-type is currently running on six Weber IDF carburettors, but the original Strombergs, manifolds, air cleaners and box will come with the car. 

The history folder is extensive. Along with the V5C and two owner's handbooks, there's a well-organised folder with MoT certificates, a huge stack of invoices back to 2011 (mainly relating to the car's restoration), previous ownership information, lubrication chart and other miscellaneous paperwork and correspondence.
