(SOLD) Classic Showcase restored this 1966 Jaguar XKE Series I 4.2 FHC to a Show/Driver level. It is rare to find an E-type such as this with a Webasto sunroof, making it a very desirable car to the collector. This E-type is in a spectacular color combination of Jaguar Dark Blue with Tan interior; a very rich color combination with thin wall tires to compliment. Included in the restoration process, the vehicle was stripped to bare metal, placed on a rotisserie, metal finished, leaded, all body parts and chrome were fitted to the car, it was prepared for primer, sealer, paint, base, clear coat, color sanded and buffed to a fabulous finish. All systems have been gone through and the engine was rebuilt back to factory specifications. The transmission, clutch system, hydraulic system was restored and the car received all new rubber and a complete new wire loom. All of the chrome was re-plated. The car received a complete new custom tailored and fit interior in the correct materials by our upholstery department. A DVD of the restoration process will accompany the vehicle. This Jaguar is an excellent example to drive, enjoy and compete in shows.
This Series I 4.2 E-type is the most desirable of all the series with a fully synchronized 4 speed transmission, covered headlights, toggle switches on the dash, comfortable bucket seats, center console, and arm rest. This makes the best driver and the most collectable for an investment grade vehicle. This Jaguar is originally a California car.
