Description for Jaguar E-Type 1965

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this largely unrestored Jaguar E-type Coupe. This car was purchased from an Iowa family where the car had been stored indoors for many years. This running and driving example appears to have been originally delivered in the highly desirable and rare factory color scheme of Black with Red trim ! The exterior wears an older repaint in red, and amazingly today still retains most all of it's original red interior.The bodywork on this car is extremely good and quite straight, as having never seen an accident. Panel gapping looks excellent, and really only needs some fine tuning in relation to it's bonnet and door catches, for a near perfect fit. Paintwork is older driver quality, and is showing some chips, scratches, and a small dent in the driver's door. Nevertheless, it presents well for a very attractive around-town driver (eventually awaiting a respray back to it's factory Black ?).Chromework presents nicely, being mostly good original and possibly replated rear bumpers.The car's interior is largely very original and appears to have been dyed at some point. The seat leather is even the original. The headliner looks very decent, along with an original dashboard top pad and beautiful facia with nice functioning instruments and gauges. The front footwell carpets have been replaced, along with the steering wheel and shift knob, but apart from that it's all original.The car is fitted with 4.2 liter engine # 7R1424-9, which is believed to be from a 1968 E-type. Mechanically, the car is excellent and runs and drives very well. The engine starts easily on the key with no smoke or noises, has excellent oil pressure, revs very well and is very quiet and smooth overall, idling nicely with a perfect exhaust note. The gearbox shifts extremely well into every gear, up or down, with very good clutch action, and the rear axle is fine. The braking system and clutch hydraulics have been recently rebuilt (with receipts) as necessary, along with a fresh fuel tank cleanout and a new pump. The car drives nicely down the road, and would benefit from a fresh set of tires at this point. The engine bay still retains it's original black color, making for an easy future detail.The car's undercarriage is extremely solid showing hardly any rust issues, and appears to still be fitted with it's original floors. The outer rockers still look excellent.The bonnet is in great original condition.Overall, a very original, well-preserved and desirable Series 1 E-type coupe. This car can be used and enjoyed as is for the time being, in it's attractive and approachable, usable condition.VIDEO LINK HERE:https://youtu.be/k02p5Kb3-UI
