While the Series II E-type was more radically altered than its interim predecessor, the essential construction remained the same and the body work differed only in detail. Modifications were made to the front of the bonnet, increasing the size considerably, the headlamp scoops were altered so that the inner walls now splayed inwards and the side/flasher were rather larger and positioned below the raised bumper. The vehicle also received heavier front bumper blades, motif bar, front and rear overriders were changed, new square number plate at the rear, a different grille was used in the rear of the bonnet bulge, and the washer jets were finished in satin chrome to avoid the risk of dangerous reflections. Reclining seats were fitted to the Series II cars as well as head rests that were adjustable for height. This Jaguar was purchased by its original owner in England where the owner had an experience of a life time driving it around Europe before having it imported to the US through Jaguar.
