The 1968 Jaguar e-type is known as a series 1.5 although Jaguar never used that designation. It is essentially the same car as a 1967 but with some engine modifications to help it meet the emission requirements that were being implemented. The exterior was identical to a late 1967 model; with the small bumpers and tail lights over the bumpers
This particular e-type was sold new in the Atlanta area and still has its original owner’s manual and warranty card which show the name of the selling dealer and first owner. Fifty years later the car is in the Atlanta area.
Carmen red with black interior are the original colors as verified on the Heritage Certificate. Engine and chassis numbers match the data plate and the Certificate.
The body on this car is in superb condition not showing any signs of rust or accidents. It is very unusual to find an e-type when all the metal panels, including the dip wells, are still the original and in good condition. The paint and chrome are both very nice. Door and bonnet fit are as they should. Interior has been redone and is in very good condition, as well as the soft top.
Undercarriage is clean and with a relatively new stainless exhaust. Tires have most of their thread and are the proper 185x15 size.
Mechanically the car is very strong with excellent (over 40 psi) oil pressure at 3,000 rpms are normal operating temperature. Brakes, clutch and gearbox are in proper working order. Overall the engine sounds and feels very good.
I have owned many e-types over the last 35 years; in fact that number exceeds 200 of them. I can honestly say this car is one of the most honest e-type I have seen. If you have been looking for an e-type that will not disappoint you, take a good look at this one.
