The Series 1 4.2 is a very user friendly, sporty driver, and one of the most collectable of the E-Types.Some of the features of this model are covered headlights, toggle switches, full instrumentation with styling and a design that was way ahead of its time with center console, and arm rests. Other features of this Series 1 are its steep windshield and tail lights, which are placed above the bumper line in the rear deck. Similarly, the parking lights are above the front bumper line in the front fenders. In 1964 when the 4.2 was tested, fuel consumption was rated road reported at 22 MPG, and a top speed of 140 MPH. This specific E-type was manufactured in October of 1966 and has been a 2 owner car since new. It was originally a Northern California car and was owned by a JCNA member that was part of the San Francisco, JAG Club. The second owner was also a member of the JAG Club, a JCNA certified judge and good friends with the original owner. The second owner knew all of the history of the vehicle before he purchased the car, and even helped the original owner to replace the clutch.
