4 speed manual
28,100 miles (actual)
This beautiful example was purchased new from Midway Motors in Great Falls Montana by its first owner. The car remained in the family and in the state of Montana until the mid 2000’s. It has been well cared for over the years with no history of accident damage. The car wears about 50% of the original factory paint. Some minor touch-up has been done to the nose and rear fenders. The wonderful Primrose Yellow exterior works perfectly with the black leather interior. The overall look and condition of the body/paint is excellent. Chrome/brightwork are all original and in excellent condition. The undercarriage is in great original/untouched/no rust condition with no aftermarket coating applied. The lights/lenses are all in excellent condition. The glass is all original and in excellent condition. The chrome wire wheels (4) are beautiful and have new radial tires mounted. The spare wheel is also in beautiful condition with a very good newer tire mounted. The interior is in all excellent original condition. The leather is soft and has no condition issues. The dash and gauges: gauges are all in good working condition and look quite new, the dash along with switches/lights also look like new, the dash top pad has 2 cracks that were probably caused by the Montana sun, the carpeting is in very good condition, the steering wheel is in excellent condition.
The E-Type performs and drives like you would hope it could. Drives a good straight line, brakes positive and straight, suspension feels perfect, engine/drivetrain are strong with clean exhaust.
This car can easily be plugged into the category of an original condition survivor. With its history from Montana, very low miles, no rust or rust repairs and no modifications, it’s the kind of collector car that will always be desirable.
