1968 Jaguar E-Type 1968 JAGUAR E-TYPE. FORD 302 ENGINE WITH C-5 AUTOMATICOffered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this exciting E-type fitted with an American drivetrain. This car was recently purchased from it's long term Florida owner from 1979, who is believed to be the car's third owner. This car was converted to it's current drivetrain years ago, most likely when the original Jaguar drivetrain wore out. It appears to be a careful and conscientious conversion, installing the engine and headers AROUND the front subframes with some reinforcement, being cautious not to cut into these structural members.The body on this car is quite decent overall with OK panel fit. There is some minor bubbling showing down low on the rocker, in front of the driver's door and on the passenger's B-post. There's also some minor rust on the outside of the dipped floor pans, an easy repair. The paintwork is older with some chips/ shrinkage but is still showing very glossy, being perfectly fine and attractive for a fun driver. Chromework is mostly good original with replated main bumpers and taillight housings. All of the glass looks nice and appears to be tinted, a nice option on a small closed car.The car's interior is in beautiful, excellent condition overall, appearing that is was restored in beige along the same time as the paintwork. This included the correct headliner, panel kit, wool carpet kit, front leather seat kits, top pad, etc. The custom-made wood dashboard is a nice touch. There is a smaller wood wheel fitted that provides more space for taller drivers. The two main gauges fitted are Stewart Warner units, functioning correctly along with the original instruments.The car's engine is a Ford 302 ci unit fitted with 351 cylinder heads, bored .030 over with TRW 9-1 pistons fitted. It's fitted with a hotter cam wit, 4-barrel Holley carb, headers, and Mallory distributor. The engine starts quickly and easily with little smoke on choke, but soon clears when it warms up. The car runs, drives, stops and steers as expected and drives happily and reliably down the road, with that fun V-8 torque and grunt.Overall, a very attractive E-type V-8 Coupe with the earlier S1 light configuration. This car was carefully converted years ago and is the ideal driver for the enthusiast desiring American power in a beautiful English sports coupe.
