This one owner, all original, CA black plate 1967 late Series 1 Jaguar XKE shows fabulous patina. It has been stored for many years, is in its original color combination of Carmen red and black and has only 52,123 original miles. After coming out of storage the car was serviced to prepare it for the road. That is all that has been done to this Jaguar XKE. The car still has its original small California pink slip a Becker Europa TR AM/FM radio, a ladies foot rest, owner’s manual, spare keys, jack, original hardtop, and spare tire. It is a great candidate for a comprehensive restoration, but a car is only original once, and would be a very nice survivor original car as is.
Launched in 1961 at the international motor show in Geneva, the Jaguar XKE echoed the sensation of the XK-120, perhaps even more. An astonishing performance package, with amazing speed and handling, the Jaguar XKE’s’ brand-new 4-wheel independent suspension system was so well conceived, it was used by Jaguar for over thirty years. The Series 1 4.2 is a very user friendly, sporty driver, with all-synchro 4-speed gearbox introduced by Jaguar in 1965, and is one of the most collectible 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.
