Matching numbers with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate Ex-California dry state car Total repaint and converted to European Specification New suspension, brakes and exhaust New Mohair hood with restored frame Coming from a private collection, this left-hand drive, Calfornia E-Type was purchased by the previous owner who was looking for a dry-state car that was solid underneath. Once back in the UK it went through a comprehensive but sympathetic restoration and has recently benefitted from over £20,000 of expenditure. The car was fully repainted in its original Signal Red and visited Aldridge Trimming where it was treated to a new Mohair hood, the hood frame restored, and whilst the original seats were fine the cushions have been replaced. The suspension and brakes have been replaced in their entirety and the car now proudly sports a new exhaust system. Whilst being repainted, the US Federal Regulation side lights have been removed returning the car to the much more attractive European look. The engine has had a top end overhaul and we understand, runs superbly with no overheating problems. The bumpers have been re-chromed, all the exterior lights are new and a set of brand new tyres have been fitted. The underside of this car is virtually immaculate and will reward any inspection, accompanied by its tool roll and original jack, Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirming the numbers, and its UK Registration, all the boxes appear to be ticked. With an MOT until May, with no advisories, and sensibly guided, this superbly restored Series II could be a very sensible investment.
