Jaguar E Type Series 1 1966 FHC 4.2

A quite rare and very original UK registered car, finished in the original factory colours of Opalescent Silver Blue with a Dark Blue interior.  This is one of the prettiest E Types you will ever see! The agents who were going to put it in their showroom had indicated they would be asking £185 -195K, without their commission we are able to offer this at £165,000, so she is really a great investment.
