Matching number motor One of the most recognizable shapes in the automotive universe, the Jaguar E-type or XKE, is getting to be an endangered species more than 60 years after its debut. This example is one of only 8,628 examples made between 1968 and 1971. It is gorgeous, complete with factory air-conditioning and factory hardtop, with only 44,497 actual miles. Repainted sometime between 2006 and 2010, the car?s paint and chrome trim are in overall excellent condition, with some minor blemishes that are visible only close range. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy and so is the boot (cargo area), complete with spare tire with wheel and carpeting. The chrome, wraparound bumpers are in excellent shape, too. The E-type was sold in the summer of 2006 from a seller near Traverse City, Michigan. The buyer had the car stripped to bare metal then all panels were repaired and the car was repainted its original color. Ten years later, the car ended up in Elyria, Ohio at a joint-effort Chevrolet dealership and Greg?s Sports, Classic and Muscle Cars. The underside of this solid E-Type was cleaned and detailed to reveal the original unmolested primer floors and underpinnings. This cat rolls on mixed radials, Michelin Defenders, size 205/70R15 in front and Goodyear Wrangler STs in back, size 195/75R15, and as the spare tire. Each tire is mounted a newer factory wire wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order. The car?s unique tilt forward bonnet (hood) exposes the matching number 4.2L inline six-cylinder engine, with dual Zenith-Stromberg carburetors and breathing via true dual exhausts. Backing the motor is a four-speed manual transmission and a 3.54:1 rear end. Inside, the black Connolly Leather is a striking contrast to the exterior color. The bucket seats are in very good order, considering the car?s age. The center console has a rip and the horn is inop, the wear shown correlates to the car?s age. The matching Wilton wool carpet is in good, original order. The original black, folding soft-top is in very good while the factory hardtop makes this more of an all-weather car. A wood-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel frames the dashboard with its aircraft-like toggle switches and full array of gauges. The inner door panels are in very good shape, as is the console-mounted shifter. A Philips AM/Shortwave/FM radio rounds out the interior. The Series 2 introduced a number of design changes, largely due to U.S. National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration mandates. The most distinctive exterior feature is the absence of the glass headlight covers, which affected several other imported cars, like the Citro?n DS, as well. Unlike other cars, this step was applied worldwide for the E-Type. Other hallmarks of Series 2 cars are a wrap-around rear bumper, larger front indicators and taillights re-positioned below the bumpers, and an enlarged grille and twin electric fans to aid cooling. Additional U.S.-inspired changes included a steering lock which moved the ignition switch to the steering column, replacing the dashboard mounted ignition and push button starter, the symmetrical array of metal toggle switches replaced with plastic rockers, and a collapsible steering column to absorb impact in the event of an accident. New seats allowed the fitment of head restraints, as required by U.S. law beginning in 1969. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial "ribbed" appearance. It was de-tuned in the US with twin two-barrel Strombergs replacing three SUs. Air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options. Documentation includes Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Showing the cars exits today as it did the day it was born on Nov. 13th, 1969 with its original matching number motor 7R8929-9. Droptop competition to this Jag in 1970 included Chevrolet?s Corvette and Excalibur?s Series II SS Roadster. Few Jaguar E-types come prettier than this one and with as little mileage yet have factory features such as air-conditioning and hardtop.
