Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster

The 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster offered here at Autostorico is finished in Gunmetal Grey metallic with Red leather interior trim. Offering its new owner, a unique opportunity to purchase a completely newly built Series II E type by marque specialist Rushton Engineering of Cullompton Devon. The original car was deemed too corroded to provide the quality we required.  However, the car provided a very robust bulkhead but the rest of the car is built with a completely new bodyshell cockpit floor doors and bonnet. With the complete restoration of the engine gearbox and drive train it is in effect a brand new car.
