A classic car collection might not ever be complete, without a Jaguar taking up space in the garage. None better than an E-Type, or XKE as it's known in the American market. Dubbed by Enzo Ferrari himself as the ‘most beautiful car ever built’ this 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster shows exactly what he meant.
Presented in a lovely color combination of Metallic Silver over Black Vinyl interior, this covered headlight example is powered by a 4.2L Inline 6, which boasts a factory rated 265 horsepower engine and power is sent to the wheels via a Getrag 5-Speed manual transmission. A blue printed and balanced engine under prior ownership sports recent upgrades including an HD radiator, performance cams, stainless steel headers and an exhaust system, giving it a lively driving experience.
Other performance features include the 3.31 limited-slip differential and 4-wheel ventilated Wilwood performance disc brakes around the car, while the undercarriage has HD swaybars, performance shocks and a recent detail.
15” chrome wire rims are wrapped in Michelin Harmony Radial X tires and secured by two-earned curved knock-off spinners. The brightwork is clear and tightly mounted around the sleek Jaguar body, showing solid gaps and proper mounting hardware to match new gaskets throughout.
Within the interior you will find bucket seats trimmed in black vinyl, black carpeting with Jaguar branded rubber floor mats, a three-spoke wooden steering wheel with a Jaguar center horn button, AM/FM cassette player with dual Apline speakers mounted in the back. Smith’s instrumentation is in center view, showing a 160 MPH speedometer next to a tachometer with complementary clock. Mileage shows 6,796, although true mileage is unknown.
A black soft top affixes nicely when up, with no rips or tears while the matching vinyl tonneau cover neatly keeps it all in place behind the bucket seats. The rear boot is tidy with tan vinyl trim covering a full matching spare and correct jack kit.
Well cared for under current ownership within the Carmel Highlands of Carmel By-The-Sea, California, this Jaguar as always been garage or stored in a climate control facility. Offered now on consignment with a clean California title to complement a complete photo and video gallery.
