This E-type was his daily driver for many years until 2009 when it was stored in his Nob Hill garage until we purchased it recently. All numbers match. Car number 2R13700 Engine number 7R12761-9 Body number4R8441 Gearbox number KE14015.

Very straight and solid example with a very good body. paint is very good with a few tiny chips. Lovely original interior. We are just fitting a new soft top as this one has a small tear. Mechanically delightful – lots of power no noise or smoke. Great gearbox with good syncros. Nice brakes and steering – a real pleasure to drive. Have just serviced it gone through the brakes wheel bearings etc. Also just fitted four new wire wheels and four new tires.

This is a remarkably honest original and good example of a very late Series II Roadster with great provenance – one very empathetic famous California owner from new! Inspections encouraged. All sales AS-IS. Sales tax and license fees due if delivered in California.
