Acquired by previous keeper James Small Esq of Southport during Summer 1988, the Jaguar was subsequently treated to an extensive restoration: bodywork refurbishment, respray, interior re-trim and mechanical overhaul. Not long back on the road by the time it entered the current ownership in December 1998, the two-seater is understood to have since covered less than 1,000 miles. Finished in Old English White with Red leather upholstery, the E-Type is described by the vendor as being in 'good' (electrical equipment, interior trim), 'very good' (bodywork) or 'excellent' (4.2 litre engine, four-speed manual gearbox) condition. Riding on wire wheels, the Jaguar is said to pleasingly retain its original powerplant plus a factory hardtop. Showing an unwarranted 39,000 miles to its odometer, this tempting Roadster
