1968 Jaguar E-Type XKE Coupe

An instant success Jaguar's sublime E-Type managed to keep pace with the fast-changing demands of the 1960's. While never officially referred to as "Series 1.5" the interim models of 1968 featured open headlamps and a switch from toggles to rocker-type switches inside. Export models utilized twin Stromberg carburetors which were easier to tune. In short buyers of the Series l cars of late 1967 through 1968 got an improved more comfortable and reliable Jaguar for their money.

This fascinating example is highly authentic retaining a mostly original paint finish and original interior. It was built to a desirable specification including wire-spoke wheels and a manual gearbox. Based upon its chassis number body style and August 1967 build date 1E34580 is a very early open-headlamp E-Type Coupe and it was depicted and discussed as such in Thomas Haddock's definitive Jaguar E-Type Six-Cylinder Restoration & Originality Guide. Offered complete with a JDHT Certificate this E-Type Coupe marks a truly historic find for Jaguar enthusiasts and collectors everywhere.
