Number 339 of 385 cars built in left hand drive , this Jaguar was rescued in 2008/9 after being stored in a barn, believed to be in West Virginia, for over thirty years. The car was subject to a complete ‘ground-up’ rebuild and restoration which was completed in 2012. It was then shipped to Europe before being purchased and imported to the UK in October 2013 with 247 miles on the odometer. When the car was restored in the USA the colour was changed to Carmen Red, the interior retrimmed with black leather and it was fitted with a black soft top. This excellent and rare E-Type is supplied with a UK V5C registration document. Being the 339th left hand drive E-Type manufactured, this is a very rare opportunity to purchase a stunning example of the ‘Holy Grail’ of E-Types and one of the most desirable British icons available today. Superb condition throughout. Heritage certificate included in the history file.
