Lot #378 - "Alvin" as original owner Mary names this Jaguar was born in Coventry, England. Mary took delivery of Alvin on August 4, 1970. Mary and her husband toured Alvin through Europe, before shipping their baby home to the United States. Alvin was a great joy to have around and was lovingly cared for and supported by his parents for the next 36 years. Mom and dad now have retired and moved to the country, so it's now time for Alvin to take on his next adventure and meet new friends. This beautiful, fully documented Series II is finished in very rare Willow Green with a Biscuit Leather Interior and Tan Hood. Under his bonnet is the original numbers matching 4.2 Liter V-8 Engine which is mated to a 4-speed manual gear box. Like his siblings Alvin has great looks, is comfortable and offers race-bred cornering and handling. Additional features Alvin is sporting are the factory wire wheels, leather upholstery, original center-lock quick change hubs, factory Girling four-wheel disc brakes and wraparound bumpers. Included in his original documents are the purchase order form, tax free sales form on dealers letterhead, sales booklet for tourists, Jaguar overseas dealer manual, original square European license plate, original warranty ID tag, delivery card filled out by dealer, manufacturer's documentation, registration paper work, service records from Germany dated 8/18/70 along with a file folder of service and maintenance records. Alvin has just undergone a complete and thorough physical, where he was given a clean bill of health. Alvin the Jaguar is a blast to drive and he truly purrs!!!
