Roadster
Chassis #: 1E16781
Engine # 7E15711-9
Gearbox #: EE2243
High bid of $62,500 at 2007 Vintage Motor Car Auction at Meadow Brook Hall. (did not sell)
Sold for $60,500 at 2008 Automobiles of Amelia Island, RM Auctions.
This vehicle is a 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 1/2 Roadster. There were only 771 examples of the Series 1.5 Roadster ever made. The Series 1 1/2 added many improvements in drivability including a 4.2-liter engine upgrade and improved synchromesh gearbox. The cockpit was enlarged and the convertible top was more leak-proof. The cooling system increased in capacity which eliminated overheating in warm climates.

This 1968 Jaguar E-Type has been treated to a nut-and-bolt concours quality restoration. It was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook where it was estimated to sell between $70,000 - $90,000. At auction, the high bid of $62,500 failed to satisfy reserve and the car was left unsold. In 2008 it was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it had the same estimated value. It was sold for a high bid of $60,500 including buyer's premium.
