Description for Jaguar E-Type 1971

1971 Jaguar E-Type. Vin P2R28602. 59,390 Miles. Manual Transmission. Willow Green. Dark Tan Interior. Restored. This majestic looking ’71 Fixed Head Coupe is arguably part of the most desired E-type series. With its styling balance and perfect proportions coupled with unforgettable performance, this Jag is truly a highlight of its era. As an example of a coveted classic sports car, this carefully maintained and beautifully presented Series II 4.2 liter Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) with its Willow Green factory paint color has been with the same owner for three decades. The mileage is less than 60,000 miles, and according to the previous owner, the car has been serviced on a regular basis by Jaguar experts. The beautiful tan leather interior is new and correct, and features the wider and more comfortable bucket seats found in the Series II. The car is also equipped with the late optional air conditioning. The fold down shelf in the back allows more room for luggage, thus further enhancing its value as a high-speed touring car ideal for long trips. The bored out 4.2 liter XK engine can hit an impressive top speed of 150 mph in quick fashion due to added torque. This coupe also features three of the more desirable SU carburetors. Th shifting is very smooth, as the Jaguar designed synchromesh 4-speed transmission in the Series II marked a huge improvement over the original Moss gearbox. The brakes are very solid, and the four power assist disc brakes bring the coupe to a quick stop. The chrome 72 spoke wire wheels are a great finishing detail on this Jag. Overview: “Based on the famed D-Type Jaguar that dominated the 24 Hours LeMans race in the 1950s, this car was designed by aerodynamist Malcolm Sayer on aircraft principles. The body features a single hood over the engine bay, a monocoque chassis with a steel tub at the center, and a strong steel frame for the front suspension and engine. The suspension is all independent with a limited slip differential. The E-type is famous for its precise handling and smooth ride. Another improvement in favor of the Series II coupe is the headlights. Purists would argue that the glass hoods over the headlights on the early car contributed to the stunning looks of the E-type. Perhaps they did but they also could be dangerous because with time they became fogged and it could be difficult to see at night; particularly at the speeds of the E-type. With the safety concerns of the late 60s, the headlight covers were removed. The restyled front opening also helped correct overheating problems.” Collector car financing available at competitive rates.
