1968 Jaguar XKE Series 1.5 2 Plus 2 Automatic Transmission Jaguar E-Type 4.2 L

Up for sale today is this beautiful Jaguar Series 1.5 E-Type. Coming just recently out of dry storage, this is one of the few rust free XKEs that you can find on the market. With a dwindling supply of early Jaguars these mid series cars are becoming more and more popular. This is a 2+2 car, so the roof line is slightly higher for you taller E-Type enthusiasts, and being a one and a half series it doesn’t have the less desirable bulbous look of the later series 2 and 3 cars.

She sports a recent exterior paint in opalescent maroon, which shows nicely. The chrome shines with only small imperfections. The exterior lights work and the headlights are even the proper Lucas lamps, which is very cool. The wheels shine brilliantly and are surrounded by brand new tires with a thin white wall similar to the original redline look. The glass is void of cracks but is not new, so it does have some road peppering. On a very close inspection there are small paint imperfections, but they are hard to find.

The interior of the car is very similar to the exterior in that it shows beautifully and is highlighted with new pieces. The seats are absolutely gorgeous as is the new black carpet. The trunk is also nice, but there is a small tear in the leather over the fuel tank. The headliner is in fantastic condition and has a small stain that may be removable. The radio unfortunately does not work and is not original to the car, but is a classy Becker replacement cassette player. Some of the instruments do not operate but are all there and are original Smiths. The door panels are in good condition and the door jams are also freshly painted.

The engine bay is clean and tidy. Looks to all be original gear, with a matching numbered engine. Frame rails are straight, but have some paint chips. The suspension looks to be in good shape and the bonnet looks great underneath.

Another highlight of the car is from the bottom up. The floor is rust free and everything is very straight and in fantastic order.
