1R10083 was purchased new by a Mr. Ashton of Santa Barbara, CA on September 26, 1969, wearing Signal Red paint over Beige leather upholstery, with a 4-speed manual transmission in open two-seater configuration. The E-Type would remain in Santa Barbara County for the following 30 years. At a later point in the Jaguar's life, Dr. Ashton (a surgeon) traded an operation to a local body shop owner for a paint refresh in correct Signal Red along with a new convertible top - which it continues to proudly display both today. In 1999, the car was acquired by a Mr. Ruby of Ventura County from Ashton's wife and daughter. Ruby was a meticulous owner, carefully filing all services performed during his 15 years of tenure. In early 2002, a rebuild of its original engine 7R6491-9 was entrusted to Steve's Jaguar Service, whom regularly maintained the car years before and after – addressing nearly all systems comprehensively. In 2015, 1R10083 then moved to Beverly Hills under new ownership until 2018. A routine service, tune-up and inspection was recently performed in February 2018.

Now offered from our Houston, Texas showroom, this Series II Roadster is a beautifully behaved performer with nicely mellowed cosmetics and the ideal “driver” for weekend sprints, long touring or even casual display. It is accompanied by a large file of records, Owner's Manual, Lubrication Chart, jack (in pouch), lead hammer with brass spanner, spare wheel and additional sets of keys.
