(SOLD)This 1967 Jaguar E-Type is an original matching-numbers and highly collectible example that has proven to be a great candidate for a Show/Driver level restoration. Included in the process: the vehicle has been stripped to bare metal, placed on a rotisserie, metal finished, leaded, and all body parts will be fitted to the car and chrome. It has been primered, sealed, painted with base, clear, and color sanded and buffed to a beautiful finish. All systems have been gone through, and the engine has been rebuilt back to factory specifications. The fuel, electrical, cooling, and hydraulic systems were also restored. All components on the XKE have been rebuilt back to factory specifications, including the engine, transmission, rear end and suspension. The car is in the process of receiving a complete new custom tailored and fit interior in the correct materials by our upholstery department. A pictorial mp4 video of the restoration process will accompany the vehicle. Upon completion of the restoration this Jaguar will be a great example to drive, enjoy and compete in shows. Stay tuned to this page for further updates on the restoration of this E-Type!
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.
