(SOLD) This XKE has been off the road for a number of years, and will require servicing to make it road worthy, but Classic Showcase recommends this E-Type as a prime candidate to benefit to a show-driver or show car level restoration. This is an original matching numbers California car that has recently resided in Colorado. It is a great candidate for a high level restoration; It has a radio blanking plate and a larger than stock radiator, with a modified bonnet made to fit. Generally, this car is in good shape, and very collectable.


All 1964 E-Types featured independent coil spring rear suspension, and with torsion bar front ends, and four wheel disc brakes, in-board at the rear, all were power-assisted. The Series 1 can be recognized by glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), small "mouth" opening at the front, signal lights and tail-lights above bumpers, and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear. This Jaguar is the early Series I E-type 3.8 Roadster. It has a 4 speed transmission, covered headlights, toggle switches on the dash, and the early-style leather-upholstered bucket seats. It is a great candidate for taking to a high level restoration.
