Description

This CA black plate E-type has been very well kept and serviced by its previous owner. It is in a spectacular color combination of Opalescent Silver Blue with a Dark Blue interior. The XKE has benefited from a recent restoration with over $50,000 spent on its restoration services with work performed such as: a new interior that was fit in all the correct materials; a very nice repaint; going through the mechanicals (the engine, the cylinder head, etc); going through the suspension, brakes, brakes lines, flushing the fuel tank, having the correct bell housing fit for the 4.2 synchro transmission; installing the correct starter for the car, adding a new clutch, having the steering rack rebuilt, installing new rubber, performing an alignment, fitting the quarter windows, completing the dash and new dash top, going through the gearbox; adding a new battery, new coil wires, new spark plugs, and rebuilding the carburetors. Now the car pulls strong and has a lot of power. Included in the purchase is the original unrestored transmission, the jack, and some of its tools.

History

All 1964 E-Types featured independent coil spring rear suspension, and with torsion bar front ends, and four-wheel disc brakes, in-board at the rear, all were power-assisted. The Series 1 can be recognized by glass-covered headlights (up to 1967), small "mouth" opening at the front, signal lights and tail-lights above bumpers, and exhaust tips under the number plate in the rear. It has a 4-speed transmission, covered headlights, toggle switches on the dash, and the early-style leather-upholstered bucket seats.
