Like so many Jaguar E‑types, this V12 coupe headed over the Atlantic after it was built in 1972, to be sold as a new car in the United States. And, again like so many British sports cars, it eventually returned back to the UK, coming back to these shores in April 1996. One of the previous owners records in the paperwork that 'by that time, it was right‑hand drive, manual, and finished in British Racing Green with Magnolia interior', having started life as a silver automatic with black interior. However, the date of the change to RHD and manual gearbox can't be confirmed from the paperwork. In 1998, it was stripped down and bodily restored, along with an engine rebuild, at which point the speedometer was zeroed. By its MoT of September 2001, it was recorded as having covered just 137 miles.  

In the paperwork file is the V5 and copies of previous V5s, a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate ‑ showing the car began life as a silver Series III automatic with black interior ‑ and bills from the late 1990s onwards. These show the fitment of polyurethane front bushing during 2006, and another complete engine rebuild with new parts plus gearbox work in 2008 at a cost of close to £10,000 (at 6110 miles). There are also assorted pictures and MoTs dating back to 2001, along with sundry paperwork and a spare set of keys.

Most useful to any new owner is a printed email from a previous owner detailing all the work done on the Jaguar from 1996 through to 2015, when the recorded mileage was 9940. The odometer currently reads 13,058.

The E‑type is in very good overall condition, with just some minor age‑related wear to the cream leather interior, which would presumably have been re‑done during the car's US days.
