When it comes to British Sport Cars, there are few as iconic as the Jaguar E-Type. It has all the characteristics that make for a great sports car, good handling, lots of power, and fantastic styling. This 1969 Jaguar E-Type Convertible has been in storage for the past 25 years and has weathered them well. It is located in Long Branch, New Jersey and has been listed here on eBay.
While America is known for its V8s and Italy for its V12s, Britain is known for its inline sixes. Jaguar’s inline six was known for its balance of performance and durability. The company began developing this engine in 1949 and by 1969 it was displacing 4.2 liters and putting out 246 hp. The seller claims the engine was running when it was parked, but that it isn’t currently working.
This E-Type will need some work, but looks to be in good overall condition. We would be sure to check it over for rust and any other hidden problems. Hopefully it won’t need much work to get it running, as it appears that it could be driven as is. What would you do with this garage cat? Would you get it running and enjoy it as is? Or would you want to do a complete restoration?
