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.
