(SOLD) This magnificent numbers-matching 1967 Series 1 4.2 E-Type roadster was the subject of a recent Show/Driver level restoration by Jaguar professionals at Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California. This E-Type was one of the last Series 1s produced before leaving the Browns Lane factory on March 31, 1967, and are the most desirable of the XKE series. Robert and Patricia Polker purchased this E-Type new on April 12, 1967 from Jaguar Cars in New York. It presents in a truly stunning color combination of an Opalescent Silver Blue exterior, fitted with a Dark Blue leather interior that is complimented by a matching Dark Blue soft top and boot. The roadster's body was completely restored, and the bottom of the car was painted in the same color as the exterior of the car for the correctness of the restoration. Once the paint was completed, the car was sanded and buffed to the deep, gleaming shine that you see today. The engine, transmission, rear end, and steering rack were restored, along with the hydraulic, cooling, fuel and electrical systems also being gone through and restored. A pictorial DVD of the restoration services performed by Classic Showcase along with a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate verifying authenticity accompany the car. With less than 100 test miles since its completion, this highly collectible E-type is ready for the upcoming 2016 show circuit, or may simply be driven and enjoyed on your favorite road or highway.
The Series 1 4.2 is a very user friendly, sporty driver, and one of the most collectable of the E-Types. These are wonderful cars with a 4.2 liter engine with 3 SU carburetors and a fully synchronized transmission. Some of the features of this model are 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.
