1967 Jaguar E-Type 2+2

Series 1 - Restored - Matching Numbers - Manual Gearbox

This is a 1967 Series 1 Jaguar E-Type 2+2, built sometime in late January/early February of 1967. It is an original 4-speed car, and all numbers match, with clear title paperwork.

We are selling this car on behalf of one of our good customers who is also local to the shop. I have seen this car in person and if I didn't already have one JUST LIKE IT, I would buy it myself!

The car is also for sale locally and we reserve the right to end the auction early.

As an E-Type built in the Spring of 1967, this is a Series 1 model with open headlamps - often referred to as a "Series 1.25" or a "1967 & 1/2". Aside from the open headlamps, ALL other features of this car are Series 1, including having a Chassis number that falls well within the Series 1 range. The open headlamps can be easily converted to covered headlamps with one of our conversion kits if desired.

Originally a well-preserved all-original car, it was lovingly restored/refreshed to it's current state as a car to be driven and enjoyed! This E-Type needs NOTHING - there are two very minor chips in the otherwise flawless paint, and the original sunvisors need to be re-covered and re-installed... Otherwise, it is a 100% TURN-KEY E-Type that is in a mechanical condition and level of finish that is BETTER than new!

Exterior - The original exterior color was opalescent gunmetal grey, and it has been professionally stripped and repainted inside and out to opalescent silver blue by a very reputable Jaguar restoration facility - Lippincott's Garage in Sinking Springs, PA, USA. The paint and bodywork finish is very good, and the new paint is complete - it covers the entire engine compartment, underside of bonnet, door jambs, etc. Two small patches were made to the steel body shell during this work - otherwise, the shell is completely original and rust-free. This bodywork also included the installation of all new rubber seals throughout the entire body shell.

There are two small areas where the paint has been damaged. 1) While installing the all new interior, the owner used one screw too long and it pushed through the exterior and made a VERY small hole. This is in the RH rear wing, just below the rear hatch opening. He then dabbed a spot of brown epoxy on to seal the small hole to prevent rust until it could be touched up later... 2) While in storage in his garage, an item fell off a shelf and chipped the paint just above the RH rear wheel. This chip is a little smaller than a fingernail. There is a can of leftover paint so that both of these blemishes can be repaired.

Brightwork - The car has new Dayton wire wheels in the factory original size, and new Vredstein tires - also in the original size. The chrome on the car has been cleaned and polished, but is almost entirely original, and looks very presentable.

Interior - The car has a complete, new, dark blue leather interior from OSJI - Original Specification Jaguar Interiors (formerly J.W. Bartlett). This is widely accepted as the highest quality and most correct Jaguar interior for restoration. There are no rips or tears - it is in excellent, like-new condition. The sunvisors are the only part of the interior not restored - they were removed to be restored and never re-installed. The new material to do so will be included with the car.

Engine - The engine has received a COMPLETE engine rebuild from Terry Lippincott at Lippincott's Garage. Terry has worked on and raced E-Types professionally for 51 years, and is widely regarded as one of the best engine builders of Jaguar XK engines in the US. Upon re-installation, a new clutch, and a complete new stainless Bell exhaust system was installed. The engine is broken in and runs flawlessly throughout the RPM range.

Gearbox - The gearbox is also the original, numbers-matching gearbox for this car. It has been freshened up with new seals, but otherwise continues to work flawlessly in its original condition. As a Series 1, this E-Type has a full-synchro, CLOSE-RATIO "EJS" gearbox - meaning it is an "EJ" box with a special tailshaft for the 2+2. The "EJ" gearboxes are THE BEST and most desirable (and valuable...) gearbox of all E-Type gearboxes - with ratios that make the car perform as it should!

IRS Final Drive Unit - the fully independent rear axle is the tried-and-true "Jag rear" with a bulletproof Dana 44 center section. This one has been gone through completely, with all new bearings and seals - and new shock absorbers.

Cooling System - To compliment the engine rebuild, a new aluminum radiator was installed, along with a new header tank and all new hoses. The factory "lawnmower blade" cooling fan has been replaced with a thermostatically controlled high-flow fan. This E-Type runs cool and will not overheat on even the hottest days!

Electricals - While the engine was out, a complete new wiring harness was installed. In addition, a new battery, new fuel pump, and new Pertronix electronic ignition was installed in the factory distributor housing. All electrical components work as they should.

Suspension - All new rubber bushings were installed in the suspension, new shock absorbers were installed in the front and rear, as well as a new steering rack and tie rod ends.

MORE! - New Heater assembly, All new hoses, new brake master cylinder and booster, new brake reservoir bottles, new heat shields, and MUCH, MUCH MORE!

I have been driving an E-TYPE that is IDENTICAL to this car (but not nearly as nice...) for the past three years, and it has been a great experience and one of the best automotive decisions I ever made! Visitors to our website will see the "company car" featured prominently in our blogs - it is a willow green E-Type identical to this car in every way.

A 2+2 has a much smoother ride than the short-wheelbase cars, and allows you to take the kids (or grandchildren) with you! And while most later 2+2 E-Types are "tamed" with automatic transmissions and air-conditioning, this Series 1 2+2 is a TRUE Series 1 E-Type - with a back seat... It has the same triple-SU and smooth cam cover XK engine, same close-ratio, full-synchro "EJ" gearbox, toggle switches, triple wipers, Series 1 seats - ALL OF IT!

Don't hesitate to call me and discuss further - this is a great one and you don't want to miss it!

SHIPPING - We have many years of experience with E-Type sales - most of which have gone to overseas customers. We can help you arrange overseas shipping and/or transportation to the nearest port - Elizabeth, NJ.

PAYMENT - To be made in person with a certified check or cash - OR - direct wire transfer - we can also help with these arrangements.

Jaguar E-Type Project Cars and Parts - Bought and Sold!
If you are looking for an E-Type project to restore, your search may be over!
At Monocoque Metalworks, we often find GOOD E-Type projects - and then find them GOOD homes with GOOD people! In fact, ALL of our past buyers AND sellers have remained close friends! THEN, we stick with you as a partner in the restoration, providing technical support throughout the duration of your project!
• E-Type Project Cars FOR SALE! - Our interaction with countless E-Type owners, restorers, and shops and suppliers puts us in touch with many orphaned and incomplete project cars. We rescue these E-Types from being parted out or scrapped, and bring them back to our warehouse, where they are combined with parts and pieces from our large stock of original parts to be a complete project car - ready for a new home!
• Our E-Type Projects are RESTORABLE! - Too often, we see E-type projects being offered that are, quite literally, unrestorable... Many times, cars that have been burned, wrecked, or are rotted beyond the point that is economically feasible to repair are sold to an overly optimistic restorer, only to have their dreams (and their bank account) shattered - when they find out they have purchased little more than a title... Here, we make sure you KNOW what you are getting - AND what you are GETTING INTO!
• Our E-Type Projects are COMPLETE and CORRECT! - Like everything else we do, rescuing orphaned E-Types is a labor of love, NOT a "get rich quick scheme"... Therefore, we work hard to make sure our project cars have the proper pieces for their Year, Series, and Model. We also pull together a project for you that is as complete as possible, but also DON'T "pad" the project with worn out, unrestorable parts that should always be replaced, like radiators, exhaust systems, etc. In addition, we serve as an invaluable resource throughout the build, helping you decide WHAT pieces to purchase new, and WHERE to source them!
• Our E-Type Projects CAN BE created to suit YOUR vision! - While we try to make all parts and pieces correct for each project, we can also tailor the project to suit your needs. For example, if you are building a high-performance driver, we can assemble your package with the better-performing Series 2 brakes, etc. Building an all-out racer?.. No problem! - we'll sell you a project that has just what you need for that and nothing more - and adjust the price accordingly!
• E-Type Parts and Pieces for sale! - As our business has grown over the years, so has our stock of original E-Type "used" parts. A lifetime of dragging home every E-Type and E-type part I could find has left us with a warehouse of original parts that is bursting at the seams! Most of these pieces will be used to complete the partial and orphaned E-Types mentioned above, but others are available to complete YOUR E-Type!
• E-Type Project Cars and Parts - WANTED! - If you have an orphaned E-Type project car, remains of a past Parts Car, extra spares left over from your restoration, or even a running & driving E-Type that needs a new, GOOD home - give me a call! Everything that gets dragged back here is stored indoors until it finds a new home - ON AN E-TYPE - that makes it ONTO THE ROAD! Take a look at some of our blog stories about the places we go and the people we meet in our search - then give us a call. I GUARANTEE you'll be pleasantly surprised by the honesty, sincerity, and ENTHUSIASM we put into everything we do! - Chuck Hadley
