This is a stunning older concours quality 1970 Jaguar Series II E-Type OTS roadster that has benefitted from a no expense spared restoration of a rust-free nice 26,000 mile original motorcar. With a total investment in excess of $250,000, this Jaguar is spectacular.
The restoration started with a solid, nice rust-free original example having covered 26,000 miles from new. The Jaguars previous owner was James Hasson and this example was acquired specifically because of its provenance of being a 26,000-mile rust-free original car with numbers matching engine, air conditioning and the factory hardtop. It was bought by the present owner on March 12, 2011 from Sports Car Company in La Jolla, CA.
The restoration was completed in 2013 by Doctor Jag Technologies in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The purchase and parts alone cost in excess of $75,000, documented with numerous pages of single-spaced lines of accounting detail. The stack of receipts is literally inches thick. The labor value was $175,000 for the 1,600 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 Willow Green and has the chrome wire wheels, giving it a spectacular look. The paint, chrome and all the finish work are all in excellent condition. There is one dent in the bonnet that is shown in the photo gallery and mentioned in the inspection report. This is ready to be competitive at concours events.
The gorgeous black leather interior and matching black 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 factory air conditioning works beautifully.
The heart of this particular E-Type is what lies beneath the bonnet. The engine pulls strong and operates perfectly. During the restoration, the Jaguar was converted to triple two-barrel Weber carburetors for more spirited performance. It has its numbers matching engine and the motorcar comes with its original hardtop, data plate, receipts 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. This Jaguar is located at the owner’s facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Does the top go up? I don’t see any pictures of the car with the top up? Also the boot covering the top does not seem to fit properly. Is that the case? Is there a reserve on the car?
Thank you for the questions. The day we did the photo shoot we had to take pictures for 20 cars- in the same day. The top and top boot cover are both as new. As you can see from the photos, the car is as new or better than new with $75,000 in parts and a $200,000 restoration performed by Jaguar specialists. Let us know how else we can assist you.
