1968 Jaguar series 1.5 E-type Coupe

This is a rust free series 1.5 XKE coupe restored in its original Primrose yellow color with black hides. Odometer reads 53K miles, believed to be accurate. This e-type has the rare factory AC, in working order, which is especially desirable on a coupe. If you have ever driven an e-type coupe during the summer you know what I mean! Please note that this coupe is the attractive 2 person body style and NOT the bulky 2+2.

Engine was rebuilt 10K miles ago and runs great. The clutch, transmission seals and the brake calipers were done 2K miles ago. The engine leaks no oil, rather rare on a Jaguar! Car has spent most of its life in California and Georgia, which explains why the body is rust free. I have not seen any signs of previous body accidents or repairs. Chrome bumpers and trim are in show condition. Wire wheels, including the spare, are in excellent condition. Tires are new. Glass is very good.

Recent service includes:

  • Rebuilt front end
  • New rear shocks (front are good and have lifetime warranty)
  • New engine mounts
  • New brake flex hoses
  • New sway bar bushings
  • New engine mounts
  • New engine stabilizer
  • New rack mounts
  • New voltage regulator
  • New 4 upper arm bushings
  • New 4 lower arm bushings
  • New coil
  • New upper and lower ball joints
  • New headlight switch
  • New tires, including the spare

Interior is very good with very little wear showing. All accessories and gauges are in working order, except the clock which probably stopped working in 1969

The car was painted in 1989 and the paint is still very good; not a show quality paint job but very presentable for a driver. Body gaps are nice and even all around, bonnet fits well; which is very important on an e-type. Includes original owner's manual (not a reprint), jack in bag, knock off hammer and special knock off tool, plus ownership records and receipts. Car is ready to be enjoyed.
