  • History of the Jaguar E-Type Series 1½

    Considered by many to be the quintessential British Sports Car, the Jaguar E-Type’s unveiling in 1961 caused a sensation both with the press and in the public eye. Admirers came from all walks of life; even Enzo Ferrari referred to it as “the most beautiful car ever made.” Beneath its gorgeous looks was a revolutionary sports car with rack and pinion steering, fully independent suspension, and four wheel disc brakes with inward rear rotors. All of this was propelled by the already proven performance of the XK engine. The series 1½ E-type is a transitional model existing between proper Series I and Series II production for 1968 model year cars. These limited production E-types featured the stylish Series I bonnet with U.S. required open headlamps while the newly designed adjustable seats and rocker-style dash switches that are featured in all Series II E-types are also present. With Series-1 like appearance and Series II refinements the Series 1½ cars are highly sought after today by Jaguar collectors and enthusiasts. With only approximately 2,000 Series 1½ roadsters built in North American specification demand vastly outweighs supply.

    The 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1½ Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Pale Primrose Yellow over a black leather interior and matching black folding convertible top. According to the accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate this example was completed at the Coventry works in November 1967 and was subsequently dispatched through Jaguar Cars of New York. This late production Series 1 car is recognized by the Jaguar Club of North America as a Series 1½ model with the early Series I style bonnet with open headlamps and later style rocker-type switches on the dashboard. The numbers matching 4.2-litre inline 6-cylinder engine is still in place while stunning chrome wire wheels, wood rimmed steering wheel and a new stainless steel exhaust system are also fitted. A recent service has been performed and this highly sought after E-type is now ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next caretaker. We are proud to offer this 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1½ Roadster to the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates matching numbers and limited production models. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
