(Quotes from “ClassicCar Magazine”) “The General Big Shift in Ferrari and Aston Values has had a Knock-on Effect on the Only Other Viable Classic Supercar --- the E-Type”--- Today’s E-Type buyers want to use their cars, taking in continental tours or competitive navigational rallies, which is why the 4.2 liter SR I XK-Engine has risen to the top of the most-wanted list. When Jaguar launched the E-Type six years earlier it had a less torquey 3.8 liter XK engine and a four-speed Moss gearbox, and it’s the latter that puts most people off on the 3.8 liter cars. --- Good SR I 4.2 liter E-Types have forged ahead of them
This Series 1 E-Type has ALL OF THE FEATURES MOST COMMONLY DESIRED by Jaguar E-Type collectors and that can only be found on the later SR I XKE’s. These Features Include:High Performance 4.2 Liter EngineAll Synchronized 4 Speed GearboxTriple SU Carburetor SystemChrome Wire WheelsMore Comfortable SeatsDeeper Foot Wells for More Leg RoomStiffer Rear Springs for Improved HandlingImproved BrakesLighter Clutch Pedal Action, andCovered Headlights
THE E-TYPE JAGUAR… known to Americans as the XKE, really needs no introduction. If Enzo Ferrari, a highly competitive man to say the least, “the most beautiful car ever made”, that pretty much sets the ceiling in terms of praise --- 50+ years later the E-Type continues to be celebrated and hold its place in history.
The E-Type was introduced to the automotive world in 1961 after years of speculation. The brainchild of Williams Lyons and a passionate team of advisers and designers, it was aptly named E-Type, as it was a clear descendant from the accomplished C and D-Types that had been dominating racetracks. Jaguar took what it learned on the track and applied it to the E-Type. The monocoque passenger compartment, tube framed engine bay and tilting hood clearly came from the D-Type. When the E-Type came out it exhibited 265bhp at 5,500rmp, a 3,781cc double overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, three carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes with rear discs fitted next to the differential to reduce unsprung weight, and importantly, it has a fully independent suspension for all four wheels.
Although the E-Type saw three Series models over its near 15-year production cycle, it’s the original Series 1 design that’s most sought after by collectors and gear-heads alike. The Series 1’s aero-covered headlights, slim bumpers, and minimalist trim remain the most timeless of the variants, and as stated above the later 4.2 liter Series 1 E-type’s employ ALL of the features most commonly desired by collectors / investors.
In addition to being an engineering stroke of brilliance, the E-Type was one of the most attractive, sensuous and evocative designs ever to grace an automobile chassis-as quoted by one automotive critic “sex on wheels”. As witnessed in numerous surveys throughout the years, including a survey done by “The Daily Telegraph”, the E-Type consistently comes out on top as the most beautiful car ever built. The E-Type’s design is an artful blend of race car and show car, not since the introduction of the XK 120 at the London show of 1948 had any sports car produced such a stir or so much favorable comment.
The E-Type was also one of the fastest production cars on the road in 1961 at close to 160 miles per hour and held that record for many years to come. It’s no wonder that the E-Type Jaguar has become one of the most desirable Classic Car Investments today.
Many consider the E-Type FHC even MORE BEAUTIFUL than the OTS roadster due to its stunning flowing body lines. As a result, the FHC’s are now increasing in value faster than the highly valued roadsters. ________________________ THE CAR BEING OFFERED… is a beautiful 1967 Series 1 E-Type Jaguar FHC finished in Pale Primrose Yellow with a beautiful Black Interior which compliments the exterior brilliantly. This E-Type is guaranteed to be a crowd pleasure at any classic car show, or main street you race through. You’re guaranteed to have a lot of fun everywhere you drive it and you’ll definitely need to add time everywhere you go for people to take photos.
CAR'S HISTORYSince rolling off the production floor, the car has only known 3 owners; however the first owner only held onto the car for about one year, so its spent the majority of its life between only two owners. The current owner has had the pleasure of enjoying and showing the car for nearly 15 years. Since purchasing the car in 2005, routine maintenance has been performed with thorough record keeping, which will be included with the purchase of the car. Additional documentation is included from the previous ownership which validates its lifetime spent as a California “Black Plate” car.
I have been asked to sell this car for a fellow member of the Minnesota Jaguar Club. I myself have been in the club for 40+ years and have restored many E-type Jaguars. To give you an idea of who I am see my personal collection on the following link: seepictures.wixsite.com/genesgarage.
CONDITION IS AS FOLLOWS
PAINT --- The exterior is painted Pale Primrose; it’s not concours but as seen by the photos the car still looks stunning. Pale Primrose is highly appreciated and highlights the beautiful lines of a Series I E-Type Jaguar. It tends to further distinguish the beauty of this car in the sea of red cars at any local car show.
BODY SHEET METAL --- Body is solid. It spent much of its life in California and of course since being brought to Minnesota it’s only been driven in the summer months.
INTERIOR --- The contrasting black updated interior is in very nice condition. Updates include new seat covers and center console with upgraded matching binding that ties nicely with the cars exterior color.
ENGINE BAY --- Not original paint (painted black) but clean.
TRUNK --- Solid and clean. Correct Series I spare tire/wheel with knockoff hammer and upgraded carjack included.
WHEELS/TIRES --- The chrome wire wheels complete with knock-off center spinners are original and in good shape for original wheels. New tires were put on the car a few years ago around 58.5k miles.
GLASS --- Original glass throughout; some minor wiper marks on the windshield but again for original glass it’s in good shape.
CHROME --- Chrome is good but some patina due to the fact it’s mostly original thus most of it has never been re-plated.
KEY THINGS DONE IN THE LAST FEW YEARSEngine service done, mostly on top (valves, etc.)Rebuilt DifferentialNew Clutch New tiresEXTRAS/UPGRADESUpgraded Cooling systemUpgraded Interior KitHOW DOES IT DRIVE/RUN? The car starts with ease from cold, idles great, revs smoothly, and performs flawlessly. Powerful, robust, and beautifully sonorous, these straight six engines are among the very best six-cylinders ever produced. All original SMITHS instruments are fully functional along with all toggle switches and accessories; temperature is normal when warm, system is charging, and oil pressure is good.
