The car is finished in its original colour of Opalescent silver blue & retains its original engine & moss gear box along with a dark blue interior.  On the day of our visit to Devon it was raining hard so we will return inn better weather to conduct a full photo shoot to our usual standards.  This home market RHD E-Type has complete matching numbers and is presented in the orginal livery combination, and completely corresponds to the Jaguar Heritage Trust trace certificate, No. 69811.

Perfection needs but few words & this early production E Type is indeed perfect.  It looks, feels & drives like the day it laft Browns lane.  Not much more need be said.
