Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1968 Jaguar E-Type 2+2.
Finished in maroon over black interior, this is a solid
driver-quality example owned by the same family since the
mid-1980s. The current owner's mother bought it as a gift for his
father nearly forty years ago. Originally primrose, the car saw a
color-change repaint to maroon prior to the family's purchase. The
body is straight and the finish retains a nice shine, but there are
plenty of small chips and other slight blemishes consistent with
40-year-old paint. Wire wheels, chrome and seals are original and
showing some patina. Aside from some light surface rust, the floor
pans and rockers are solid with no known rot.
Interior is believed to be mostly, if not entirely, original and
the leather seating surfaces have developed a lovely lived-in
patina. Period AM/FM radio. All gauges and lights are working
properly. This car was optioned with air conditioning, but the A/C
does not presently work (although all of the components appear to
Under the bonnet is the original numbers-matching 4.2 liter "XK"
dual-overhead camshaft, inline six-cylinder engine mated to a
four-speed manual transmission. Recent comprehensive service in
preparation of the sale. This XKE starts easily and runs well; the
clutch and gearbox feel good with no crunchy synchros; there is no
excessive play in the steering or suspension and the brakes stop
confidently (and straight). Jaguar's ahead-of-its-time XK engine
has long been one of our favorite classic car powerplants.
While the Series II XKE may lose a few style points over the Series
I cars, its more approachable price point and truly stellar driving
dynamics should put it on any enthusiast's short list. This example
is an early Series II car, which we would consider a series 1.5, as
it retains the smaller/lower bumpers and exterior lighting
arrangement of the Series I cars.
