Offered for sale is a gorgeous, incredibly strong running 1970 Jaguar E-Type OTS Roadster finished in timeless Carmen Red over Black. This example is exceedingly presentable, with deep and lustrous paint, an excellent body and its original, roaring, triple Weber carbureted 4.2L engine.
Marred only by the most minimal of imperfections (none of them significant enough to appear in the pictures), the car’s finish is excellent. The body is free of dings, waves or evidence of accidents and all of the panels fit exceptionally well. The irregular gap showing in the pictures of the trunk has since been rectified with a slight adjustment, making all of the gaps wonderfully consistent. All of the chrome is in great original condition, as is the glass and rubber. The car has brand new chrome knock-off wire wheels wrapped in brand new tires. The car’s interior is equally as clean with original seats and interior panels showing only minimal wear for their 42 years of service. The carpets and dash are also in good shape and the car has a new canvas soft top (in our opinion far superior to the original vinyl top) as well as its original boot cover.
The engine starts effortlessly, idles consistently and pulls with incredible, grin inducing force under acceleration. Triple Weber carburetors are a popular conversion from the original SUs, offering much more reliability and power, especially noticeable out of this car’s quad exhaust. The transmission shifts flawlessly, the car drives and brakes straight and it is an utter joy to drive, whether tooling around town or driving up the coast for the weekend.
This is not a show car, but as the pictures show it is an exceedingly presentable, beautiful and honest weekend driver or garage queen. If you’re in the market, this car deserves your serious consideration.
