1967 Jaguar E-type Series 1 4.2 Liter Roadster

VIN: 1E15831
Odometer: 64,350 original miles

This is a single family owned Jaguar e-type series 1 roadster from new! I love the color combination of Opalescent silver grey with black interior.

The car was purchased new by Mr. Pennington in San Antonio, Texas. Upon his death the car went to his daughter in Atlanta, Georgia where she and her husband enjoyed the car for the last 32 years.

Matching numbers series 1 roadster with Heritage Certificate. Has its original 4.2 liter inline 6 cylinder engine with triple SU carbs and fully synchronized manual gearbox. This car was built in June 1967, making it one of the very last series 1 roadsters built. All original body panels with the exception of the left rocker. No signs of accidents.

The paint quality is very good with very good body gaps.  Body is very solid and rust free. Nice dash top. Leather seats were recently done as was the carpeting. The rest of the interior appears to be original and in very good condition for the age of the car. All gauges are in working order. Black canvas top shows a little its age but has no rips and is very usable. Boot cover is original and in very good condition.

Engine runs very good with excellent oil pressure. Suspension is nice and tight. Clutch and gearbox work as they should. Car is ready to use and enjoy.

1967 was the very last year of the series 1 e-type before pollution and DOT requirements reduced much of the engine's power and the attractive toggle switches and slim bumpers were eliminated. Overall this is a well sorted out, matching numbers, series 1 roadster in a very attractive color combination.
