(SOLD) Car Condition: High End Driver; This exceptional Jaguar is a one owner since new car. It has incredible patina! It comes with all the service records from day one, and has been serviced by only one mechanic during its whole life. The only reason we were able to purchase the car, is that the mechanic retired and the owner didn’t trust anyone else to service the car. Since we are Jaguar Specialists, he trusted us to find a good home for her, a collector that will continue to care and maintain his E-type. It’s a real time capsule! All original factory items come with the car. The car will receive a full detail and service by Classic Showcase. A totally documented car coming with books, receipts, the original bill of sale, warranty information and protecto plate will accompany the car. This XKE comes with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate of Authenticity documenting the originality of the vehicle and all numbers matching. The Jaguar runs exceptionally well and would be a great candidate to take to a Concours level, or can be driven and enjoyed now making a great addition to any Jaguar collector’s collection.
The E-Type Coupe presented here is an early 1968 model, it is one of the few E-Types that are today popularly known as Series I 1/2 cars as they utilize the open headlight bonnets but are otherwise are very similar to the Series I cars retaining the very favorable 4.2 liter engine. Inspiration from the D-Type is unmistakable, as the E-Type had a monocoque passenger compartment, a tube framed engine bay and a tilting hood. The XKE had four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes with the rear discs fitted next to the differential to reduce unsprung weight and, most importantly, fully independent suspension on all four wheels.
