1967 Jaguar XKE E-Type news, pictures, specifications, and information
The XKE was launched in 1961 as a replacement for the XK-100 series. Based on a design by Jaguar founder, Sir William Lyons and aerodynamic stylist, Malcolm Sayer, it created a sensation at automobile shows all over the world.

In 1967, the present owner drove his new car off the boat in Bayonne, NJ. It has been with him in Massachusetts and, following retirement in 1991, followed him to Florida.

It is probably the last XKE 4.2 to come into this country with the original SU carburetor setup, before Jaguar went to the Stombergs.

The Jaguar E-Type was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Salon in 1961. It was one of the purest transformations of sports racers to production sports car the world had ever seen. The revolutionary Xk120, introduced in 1948 at the London Show, later evolved into the XK140 and the KX150. The Jaguar E-Type continued the tradition of elegant and sporty design, and alluring buyers from around the world. The E-Type's underpinnings were directly descended from the three-time Le Mans-winning D-Type. Power was from an aluminum inline-6 twin overhead came engine and mated to a 4-speed gearbox. It had an all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. The bodywork was sensuous and the result of Jaguar founder William Lyons' instinctive grasp of aerodynamics.

This particular example is an unrestored 1967 Series 1 XKE Fixed Head Coupe. It has covered headlights, front and rear marker lights above the bumpers and center-exiting twin exhaust. Power is from its original 4.2-liter triple carbureted twin cam engine. It has its original Opalescent Maroon paint with a great patina and original Black interior complete with 160 MPH speedometer, Smith's gauges and wood-rimmed steering wheel.

The car was in the care of one family ownership from 1967 through 2013 and driven just 12,563 miles since new. It has the original books still in the original plastic packet.

The Jaguar E type, also known as the XK-E, brought style and performance together to create a mass-produced supercar. The road-going sports car was conceived in 1956 as a replacement for the D-type. In March of 1961 the E-Type was officially introduced to the world at the Geneva, Switzerland Motor show.
It's design was created by an aerodynamic engineer named Malcolm Sayer. The front engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle featured a moncoque body and a tubular front chassis. The six-cylinder double-cam engine had three SU carburetors and produced 265 horsepower. The suspension was independent with disc brakes on all four wheels. It brought together the best or aerodynamics, coupled with the latest technology and propelled by a potent engine. The vehicle was not only fast, it offered excellent performance and handling. Some of the most common complaints it received were the cabin being too cramped and it suffered from poor ventilation.

The E-Type was a popular vehicle. It was fast, performed well, and was competitively priced. Due to the United States safety and emission regulations, some of the horsepower was lost. The headlamp covers were also removed prior to the close of the 1960's.

A 4.2-liter engine and synchromesh gearbox was introduced in 1964. In 1966, the 2+2 coupe was introduced and featured a longer wheelbase. The Series II cars were not as quick as its predecessors. The Series III, however, was a different story. Powered by a V-12 engine they were once again able to propel the E-Type over 145 miles per hour.

Production for the E-Type ceased in 1975, after 72,520 examples being produced. It was replaced by the XJ-S; a vehicle that was larger, heavier, and not as visually appealing.
