This wonderful and highly original V-12 Roadster in perfect colors, showing only 51,387 original miles. This car was just purchased from it’s first/original New York owner and still retains most of it’s original factory paintwork in very good condition.
The body on this car is excellent with no signs of rust and great fitting panels, per factory. Paintwork is original on the car except for a few areas of paintwork done over its 47 year life. The rest of the car appears entirely original with original chrome work, rubber, Triplex windshield, etc.
The car’s interior trim and trunk area is entirely original and in very good condition also including it’s leather seats, carpets, panel kit, sun visors, perfect dashboard, steering wheel, etc. Remarkably, the car still retains even it’s original factory-fitted soft top that needs some repair, along with the soft top frame. The top boot is perfect. The car also includes a very nice and fairly newer fiberglass hardtop, styled after the original one.
Mechanically the car is fantastic. It starts easily on the key with excellent oil pressure, no smoke or noises. Once warmed the engine revs hard and smoothly. while running at any RPM, the engine is silent, void of any mechanical noises. The car drives just like it should given its original low mileage. Brakes, steering, suspension, tires, and gearbox are all up to the mark, and the car glides effortlessly along the road. Please watch running / driving video.
The car’s underside presents well just like a low mileage car should. There’s no signs of body rust and it looks well protected. It appears that a recent stainless exhaust system throughout has just been fitted. Tires and factory chrome wheels look nice. The car also retains it’s original Dunlop spare tire and rim, jack and handle in bag, owner’s manual, service booklet, sales literature, and maintenance receipts.
Overall, an excellent and low-mileage original still retaining most of it’s “first” paint, this one-owner, 4-speed, V-12 E-type Roadster is finished in agruably the most attractive color scheme offered on these cars.
