THE JAGUAR E-TYPE

Jaguar would make a habit of shocking the automotive world. Sometimes the impact of its cars reached beyond the showrooms and exposition halls to rock popular culture, yet not even Jaguar's founder, Sir William Lyons, could have predicted the impact of the Jaguar E-Type.

When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the new Jaguar stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. Constructed using methods derived from the D-Type sports racing car, the E-Type was a technical marvel. The light and rigid monocoque chassis used the engine itself as a structural part of the car, with the long and sleek bonnet hinged at the front. The headlights were beautifully recessed in the fenders and covered with contoured Perspex for a free-flowing design and improved aerodynamics. The car featured 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes all around and a 4-speed manual transmission. The proven XK power plant was carried over from the XK150 and made sure the lithe Jaguar would exceed the 150mph mark.

Facing safety and emissions concerns, largely from the United States, starting in August of 1967 Jaguar began producing what has been named the "Series 1 1/4 and 1 1/2" XKE. The differences were subtle, though important. The trio of SU carburetors that breathed life into the E-Type since its introduction were replaced with a duet of more efficient Stromberg Carburetors, the interior toggle switches were replaced with safer rocker switches, and the knockoff wheels were modified to have more center hubs without wings. These changes, along with further evolutions that continued through the next series of XKEs, are the reasons that the Series 1 remain the most desirable examples.

Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed. With spare parts readily available, a number of marque clubs to join and many driving and concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent, widely admired collector car.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed very early on in 1967, this open two-seater E-Type left Jaguar's production facility much as it appears today, and was most likely delivered new to the booming, North American market. It was equipped with the powerful, 4.2-Liter dual overhead cam inline six-cylinder engine, and received the upgraded, fully-synchronized 4-speed manual transmission. The Jaguar has received restoration, service and maintenance work over the years, and appears in beautiful condition today. It should be noted, that some signs of corrosion have been found in the bodywork. As the early Jaguar factory records are unclear with regards to exactly when the covered headlights were cancelled on US-market car, it is hard to determine if this car had them from new or had received the newly introduced lights in 1967. Completed in a lovely Old English White exterior color over a black leather interior, this end-of-the-run 1967 E-Type 4.2 Roadster looks just right. Very nice trim and bright work adorns the Malcolm Sayer-designed bodywork, matched by chrome wire wheels. Inside a clean black leather interior greets you, along with the classic wood-rimmed steering wheel. The first-generation E-Type remains a highly collectible car, and this one would be a great example to take on tours and rallies.
