1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5For your consideration is this very original, solid, and well sorted 1968 Jaguar E-Type Open Top Sports (OTS), roadster, that has traveled only 21,300 miles. This E-type retains its original numbers matching 4.2L engine, matching four speed manual transmission, body panels, and British Racing Green paint color (document confirming provided). The body of this E-Type is in impressive condition, as expected for having traveled only 21k miles. It is incredibly straight. The gaps and fitment of panels are excellent. The doors open and close with ease. It is amazingly and originally solid. Rockers are super solid all around. Wheel well lips are excellent. Door jambs, trunk floor, floor boards, and etc. are impressively solid throughout. Both floors are original and excellent. The underside of this Jaguar is impressively dry and straight with what looks to be its original texture intact.
The dashpad is excellent and without splits or cracks. The front side of the dash is also great, without peeling or splits. Chrome and trim throughout is very presentable. Door panels are excellent. Glove box looks practically untouched. Speaker panels are great and not oxidized. The steering wheel is nice and not cracked.
