For Sale: 1968 Jaguar E-Type in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Classic Car Addict is proud to present this beautiful 1968 Jaguar XKE (E-Type) for sale in our Mesa, AZ showroom. Regarded by many as the most beautiful car ever built, the E-Type Roadster's coupe cousin was rather more Polarizing. To some, the hard top was the epitome of style, while others regarded it as the ugly duckling. But whatever your opinion, there's no denying the impact these classic coupes had, as well as the cult status they would command. The Series II 2+2 had a more raked windshield than other models, better suiting the longer wheelbase, longer doors, and higher roofline to fit the shorter Coupe's windshield and A-pillars. This meant the roofline had to be reconstructed, creating yet another unique feature of this conversion. There is a string of other details, such as the three wiper blades from the earlier model. With the carbon rear fenders fitted, they relocated the fuel filler to the tailgate, modifying it to the filler cap and fitting a clear third brake light above the rear glass. When closed, the tailgate seals the baffled racing fuel cell fitted under the floor. It's paired with a racing pump to feed the big Weber's. Once completed, the car was shot in DuPont Silver metalflake. The window trim was painted flat-black, and a delicate red pinstripe applied under the side windows. Even the Jag's underside wasn't overlooked. Although out of sight, it has an aluminum belly pan, with all the welds smoothed before painting. The same treatment was used on every welded seam. To match the exterior, the cockpit needed to be extraordinary, which was achieved with perforated lipstick-red leather on Series 1 seats. They also reconfigured the interior, making it more spacious by removing the 2+2's small rear seats. This allows to move the front chairs back, while shifting the dash forward 6. With matching red leather trim, carpet, and harnesses. The fitted turned aluminum door panels compliment the exposed interior body panels and fuel filler. A leather-wrapped Fittipaldi steering wheel sits ahead of Smiths instrumentation that includes a 160-mph speedometer and 6k-rpm tachometer, both of which are said to have been rebuilt. A suite of auxiliary gauges are found in the center stack. The five-digit odometer shows 28k miles, around 2,500 of which have been added during current ownership. It also has an SCCA-spec roll cage built into the rear of the car and painted body color. The delightful period mirrors on the front fenders have two-way glass and house cameras, with the images viewed on two monitors mounted above the gearshift. While some might consider such extensive modifications to be excessive, others see things differently. This could very well be the fastest and most well thought out "E" in the world. This will be sold on a clean Arizona title with 6 totes of documentation. Call Classic Car Addict today at 480-256-1459.
