Description

This stunning, matching numbers, original CA black plate 1967 Jaguar XKE OTS was completed at the Jaguar factory on March 2nd, 1967 and was destined to the first owner, Mr. Cavon of Oakland, CA. Raised on the West Coast in California, and recently in Colorado, it has lived a luxurious life being well cared for and pampered in a few large collections. It has been a very original car all its life, and recently was restored back to its original color of Carmen Red. The body of the car has never had any rust, is exceptionally clean, and accident free. The paint was performed by a renowned Pebble Beach painter who took his time to keep the spot welds and seams evident. It was completely stripped down when it was being painted, with all body panels being in excellent condition, and original to the car. The engine has been rebuilt, showing excellent compression, and the transmission shifts well. The interior is a soft supple beige leather that complements the striking Carmen red exterior. The XKE was recently shod with new, correct size Vredestein tires to make your ride more enjoyable. There are service receipts dating back from the late 1970's to very recent times. Fresh from a recent service, this highly collectible E-type is ready for this seasons show circuit, or just to be driven, enjoyed and admired.

History

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 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.
