1968 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES 1.5 4.2 LITRE FIXED-HEAD COUPE
The first significant upgrade of Jaguar’s sensational E-type sports car occurred in October 1964, with the launch of the 4.2-liter version. Along with the bigger, torquier engine came a more user-friendly gearbox with synchromesh on first gear, and a superior Lockheed brake servo. Apart from 4.2 badging, the car’s external appearance was unchanged, but under the skin there were numerous detail improvements. These mainly concerned the cooling and electrical systems, the latter gaining an alternator and adopting the industry standard negative ground, while the interior boasted a matte-black dashboard and improved seating arrangements. The top speed of about 150 mph remained unchanged, the main performance gain resulting from the larger engine being improved acceleration. Like its 3.8- liter forebear, the 4.2-liter E-type was built in roadster and coupe forms, and in 1966 gained an additional 2+2 coupe variant on a nine-inch longer wheelbase that was intended to extend the E-type’s appeal beyond the traditional sports-car-buying market. In 1968, all three versions of the E-type underwent major revision to comply with U.S. safety and emissions legislation, emerging in Series II guise minus the original’s distinctive headlight covers. In addition, enlarged side and rear lights were adopted, while a thickened front bumper center section bridged a larger radiator intake. Interior changes included a collapsible steering column and rocker switches in place of the earlier toggles. From late 1967, the E-type began to embody some of the aforementioned modifications, these interim cars coming to be known as the Series 1.5, although there was never a fixed specification for this unofficial model. Manufactured in May 1968 during this transitional period, this desirable left-hand-drive Series 1.5 Roadster was supplied new via Mann. The accompanying JDHT certificate confirms that it retains matching chassis/engine numbers. Finished in stunning and correct Primrose Yellow with beautiful black leather interior, this incredible motorcar has had a complete nut and bolt, body-off restoration performed by one of the world’s most renowned restorers, XK’s Unlimited. Included with this fully documented restoration are all its receipts (totaling over $80,000), photo album, Jaguar Heritage certificate; as well as its original owner’s manuals, letters of correspondence, and vehicle registrations. We are proud to offer this magnificent fixed-head Jaguar to the most particular buyer who only wants the best. 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 and posting gains of 395-percent 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
