Matching number engine: 7E10154-9
Red with original black interior, 4.2 liter, all synchro 4-speed gearbox, wire wheels, triple carbs, covered headlights
This is e-type represents the end of the era for the series 1. Considered by many as the best year for the e-type, this 1967 fixed head coupe has the desirable combination of the 4.2 liter engine (original matching numbers engine to this car), full synchro gearbox, triple SU carbs and the covered headlights. This car is a 2 person coupe, not the bulky 2+2.
The body is straight and rust free. Paint is very good for a driver but not in show condition. Chrome is good, but not perfect. Interior is nice, Chrome wire wheels are very good with Michelin red line tires. Mechanically the car is excellent.

- New suspension and steering bushings
- Electrical system checked and rectified as needed
- Accessories wipers, headlights, etc) checked and rectified as needed
