Correct Factory Color Option Correct Factory Interior Option Correct Numbers Matching Powertrain All Correct Components About the 1964 E-Type: Jaguar certainly made their mark on the automotive industry when they introduced the E-Type in 1961. The E-Type Jaguar had all of the cutting edge technology. Right out of the box this car was good for a top speed over 150 mph and 0-60 mph around 6.5 seconds. Technological advances included monocoque construction disc brakes rack and pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension. One area that Jaguar really hit the nail on the head was the styling. E-types are often referred to as some of the most beautiful vehicles ever made. This particular example is a Series 1 which are considered to be the most desirable and most beautiful. This run from 1961-1967 is known for its covered headlights. The glass headlight covers frame the front mouth opening on either side. This opening is smaller on the Series 1 cars in comparison to the later cars. Other distinguishing features are the rear lights mounted above the bumpers and the exhaust exiting beneath the number plate in the rear. The 3.8L Inline 6 is equipped with triple SU carburetors and is good for an output of 265 horsepower and 240 lb ft of torque. The power is put to the wheels through the Moss four-speed gearbox. These Power figures were highly impressive for this era especially considering the lightweight construction kept the weight of this roadster under 3000 pounds. This car has correct leather-upholstered bucket seats Leather-trimmed center instrument panel and console. The vehicle rides on independent suspension all around and features very unique inboard rear brakes. Power disc brakes are standard in all four corners. This particular XKE has been privately owned by the owner of JK Auto Group. The engine and transmission are original to this car and have been completely restored to exact factory specifications. The odometer shows 4 miles since completion as it has been used as a trailer queen for concourse judging and a museum piece since completed. The car can be driven or enjoyed as the best example available anywhere in the world. With prices souring on high quality E-types there's no question these are desirable roadsters and will prove to be an amazing investment piece. Enzo Ferrari has been quoted as saying the E-Type is the most beautiful car in the world.... and we Agree! 2014 North American Concours Champion!
