1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster Interior
Auction Results: $66,000
1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster
AUCTION RESULTS: Lot was Sold at a price of $66,000
265bhp, 4,235 cc double overhead-camshaft six-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with double wishbones, torsion bars and anti-roll bar, independent rear suspension with lower wishbones, trailing lower radius arms, coil springs, anti-roll bar, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 96"
This 67 Series I E-Type displays a high-quality cosmetic restoration of an original, low-mileage car. Its flowing lines are beautifully enhanced by the desirable covered headlamps, a new white exterior finish, new brightwork and chrome-plated wire wheels with period style whitewall tires. The cockpit is trimmed in tan leather hides with Wilton wool carpeting and includes the original woodgrain steering wheel. Characteristic of Series I E-Types, this example also features dash-mounted toggle switches, as opposed to the rocker-type switchgear found on later models. In addition, the Jaguar also benefits from a fully detailed engine bay and trunk area.
Many Jaguar enthusiasts consider the late Series I E-Types, produced from 1965 to 1967, to be the most refined and desirable examples. With their larger 4.2-liter engines and various other refinements, they offer peerless style and an incomparable driving experience.
