This is a stunning concours quality 1969 Jaguar Series II E-Type OTS roadster that has benefitted from a no expense spared restoration.  With a total investment in excess of $310,000, this Jaguar is spectacular.

This was a UK delivery of a USA specified E-Type for an American military officer on May 1, 1969.  Lt. B.B. Byers special ordered this roadster to be delivered new to Coventry, England.  Shortly thereafter he brought it home to the US.  It lived most of its life in San Diego, CA.  In the early 1980’s James Pasto bought the car.  It comes compete with an impressive file showing that Mr. Pasto enjoyed the car for more than 34 years, from the early 1980’s until he sold it to the present owner in November of 2017.  By 1986, the Jaguar had accumulated 55,000 miles since new.

The restoration started with a solid, nice original California car that had 58,700 miles since new.  The car was acquired by its present owner specifically because of the elegant and stunning in its Black exterior and Red leather interior.  The restoration was completed in 2018 by Doctor Jag Technologies in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The parts alone cost in excess of $35,000, documented with several pages of single-spaced lines of accounting detail.  The stack of receipts is literally inches thick.  The labor value was $231,000 for the 2,100 hours the craftsmen and engineers spent rebuilding this incredible roadster.  This is part of a 70-car collection, including 26 Jaguars.

This E-Type has been beautifully finished in its original Black and has the chrome wire wheels, giving it a spectacular look.  The paint, chrome and all the finish work are all in excellent condition.  This is ready to be competitive at concours events. The bonnet has some imperfections in its body finish, showing several small dents.

The gorgeous red leather interior and carpeting is all new and without fault.  New Jaguar branded seatbelts have been installed and everything in the interior is as-new.  The dash, instruments and door panels are also either new or restored.  Everything works as it should.

The heart of this particular E-Type is what lies beneath the bonnet.  The engine pulls strong and operates perfectly.  During the restoration performance headers were installed and an aluminum radiator was also installed.  This is a numbers matching example that comes with its original data plate, receipts, vintage photos and records of the restoration and the Historical Society certificate.

An independent inspection was conducted and the report is available for your review.  It confirms the pristine condition of this roadster, as you would expect with a fresh restoration.  If you are interested in acquiring the ultimate E-Type that is essentially as-new or better than new, this may be your motorcar.

For more information and details, call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.  This Jaguar is located at the owner’s facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Someone has to start proofreading your listings more carefully – the header says “$410k restoration” and the body then says “With a total investment in excess of $310,000, this Jaguar is spectacular” – so which one is correct? Hard to believe listings that have such contradicting statements in the basic factors.

Yes, we apologize. The total investment was $310,000+. The owner paid $49,500 for the car and then proceeded to restore it.

Interesting Fact: This Jaguar model was only called the XKE in the North American market during the time of production. In Britain, where the car was manufactured, it was known as the Jaguar E-Type. Production on the Jaguar XKE occurred between 1961 and 1975 and a convertible, as well as hard top version were both offered. This sporty car boasts a top speed of 150 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 time that is under seven seconds. The body of the Jaguar XKE is based upon the Jaguar D-Type racing car which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for three consecutive years starting in 1955. When the Jaguar XKE was released in 1961, Enzo Ferrari called it “the most beautiful car ever made” and, in 2008, The Daily Telegraph listed the Jaguar XKE in its list of the 100 most beautiful cars of all time. Regardless of age, the Jaguar XKE holds up as one of the most stunning and high-performing vehicles in history!
