Tyres have now been changed for new ones as the originals were shot.

Car is nearing LHD to RHD conversion completion by Stuart of Rectory Classics & should be delivered next week - cant wait to get my first drive after 10 months of waiting ! :)

I have just bought an S2 FHC 1970 from America via Angus @ Moss Jaguar and can recommend his services very highly.
Good luck with your purchase :D

It varies state by state, but in California you can have the Dept of Motor Vehicles perform a title search. I did hear that the DMV did a major records purge in the mid-1990s, so this information may not be available. Another factor to consider is that California (and other states) carefully contro...

Tracing an E-Type's history in America

I've just purchased an imported e type jaguar from the USA last year & I need some help as to how to set about finding out it's ownership history and any work done to the car during the 44 years it was there. The Heritage certificate states the last owner in the states and I have written to them, bu...

What's your take on the red-banded tyres?
Initial thoughts, I don't like them - however I need to take delivery of the car, see what they are like & make up my mind ?

Lovely car! Well done! Are you planning on enjoying the first season in LHD mode, use the time to collect all the RHD bits, and then convert autumn - winter? Or cracking on with conversion straight away? Whilst I like LHD when abroad, I hate it in the UK, so I'm changing just that straight away to ...

Well, after a search lasting 8 months, I finally found what I wanted. It's a rolling restoration, 1970 S2 FHC matching numbers in vgc from California in White with Black leather. Hopefully will be "on the road" in the UK in May & at the moment the only thing I'm changing is LHD to RHD & I will run i...

I will not be able to get ...

Otherwise if you're looking at S2's then there has been one advertised here at gradually lower prices since the summer, the E-type market here is really small. From memory it's burgundy with a tan interior (newly done). And looked to be a solid car. Can't remember if FHC or 2+2. Can't remember auto...
