For Sale: 1968 Jaguar XKE in Rowley, Massachusetts

Vehicle Description

"At its launch at the Geneva Auto Salon in March 1961, the E-Type not only stole the show but every headline. Enzo Ferrari described the Jaguar as the most beautiful car in the world, and many regard the original Coupe and Roadster models as perfect from every angle."-Autocar.co.uk

This 1968 E-Type OTS roadster is one of the limited production Series 1.5 models produced. The Series 1.5 XKE's featured exposed headlights that were shared with the Series II cars but retained the desirable Series I features such as the small front grille opening, twin signals mounted above the front bumper as well as rear taillights mounted above the split rear bumper. The blend of the two Series thus produced the Series 1.5.

This 1968 Jaguar XKE underwent a full concours nut and bolt restoration which was completed in 2019. Currently showing just 200 miles since restoration this E-Type presents as well as it did in 2019 when it was awarded "Best in Class" at the Endicott Concours D' Elegance.

Beneath the bonnet you will find the numbers matching 4.2-liter twin-cam engine with dual Stromberg carburetors mated to the correct 4-speed manual transmission. With a pull of the choke and turn of the key this XKE comes to life.

The black paint on this Jaguar has great depth and shine with a mirror like finish. The black leather interior is void of any wear at all and presents as brand new. With the reflection of the highly polished chrome in the mirror like black finish you will not find a more visually pleasing combination. Add the black tautly fitting Stayfast top and you have a combination that really is "the most beautiful car in the world."

The overall workmanship on this E-Type is of the highest quality with no exceptions. Drive or show, this roadster will not disappoint.
