Description

This LHD E-type is not a coupe conversion but was also born as a roadster. It has been fastidiously race prepared by the current owner who has enjoyed it for many years on the classic racing scene. This is a 100% correct E-type which is fully FIA legal and a competitive and reliable entry in 60’s Endurance, GTSCC and/or Gentlemen drivers race series.

The detailed spec of this red & Silver E-type can be found below. The car recently participated in the 60’s endurance race at Imola and needs a normal, after-race overhaul/check-over. Obviously, FIA HTP is available and 4 spare wheels come with the car.

This is an ideal and correctly priced race-spec E-type which can be enjoyed immediately !
