1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Auto
This lovely 1967 Jaguar E-type is a 2+2 UK right hand drive car with the 4.2 straight six engine and automatic gearbox. It is believed to be one of only 2 1967 E-type automatics still on the road. The car has service history, 43,000 recorded miles, MOT to November 2018 and a record of all the 6 owners in its 51 year history. The valuable number plate JOT 2E comes with the car, and was fitted to the car from new. The car was restored in 2002, with invoices to prove, and remains in very nice condition.
ENGINE AND GEARBOX
The car starts immediately, both hot or cold and settles to a satisfying burble on tickover. It pulls smoothly and strongly through the rev range and maintains excellent oil pressure. The engine is well matched to the ratios on the automatic gearbox and the car changes with fluidity both on kickdown and up and down its gears. The performance of the E-type is still outstanding, so many years after its launch, and is a superb driving experience. We have the Heritage Certificate for this car which shows the car was delivered on 10th April 1967 to its lady owner.
The black seats front and rear are in excellent condition and the whole interior belies the cars age. Headlining is intact and free of sagging, the carpets are very good, and the car benefits from having seat belts fitted for additional safety. The instruments and switch gear are all in working order, and the wood rimmed steering wheel is in excellent condition.
The car is finished in gleaming Red and the overall condition for its age is very good, with just a few age-related signs of wear and tear. It is an older restoration, having had significant money spent on it in 2002. Certainly nothing is required cosmetically for some time to come. The chrome spoked wheels are in superb condition and the car has good quality tyres on all four corners. Chromework is excellent and complete and this Jaguar is a real head-turner.
This car E-type Series 1 is a car with 6 owners including the last, and has folders full of invoices, receipts and history.

Since there there is a full service record through to a local customer of Roman Garages who traded in the car to us, having owned it for nearly six years.
