1967 Jaguar XKE E-Type

First introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 1961, the E-Type incorporated technical brilliance and advanced design. It was a direct evolution and road-going version of the Jaguar D-Type race car that was three-time winner of LeMans. The brain child of Malcolm Sayer—formerly a designer for the Bristol Airplane Company during World War II—principles of aerodynamic low drag were applied to its slippery shape. Likewise, the monocoque method of construction was aircraft inspired. The overall mechanical architecture included 4-wheel independent suspension, a dual overhead cam inline 6-cylinder engine, rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel disc brakes. The Series 1 E-Type produced from 1961-67. The 1965-1967 versions brought several welcomed improvements including the fully synchromesh 4-speed gearbox that replaced the crash first-gear style, the enlarged 4.2-liter engine (versus the previous 3.8-liter), and an alternator that replaced the old generator.

The Jaguar XKE E-Type was available as a convertible or coupe and in 1966, an enlarged 2+2 coupe was introduced. For 1967, the XKE received only minor updates and changes. Power was from a 4.2-liter twin-cam six-cylinder engine offering 265 horsepower. A four-speed manual gearbox was standard and an option dual-range Borg-Warner automatic was available.

The XK-E rested on a 96-inch wheelbase platform while the 2+2 Coupe was nine-inches longer, measuring 105 inches. Pricing for the Roadster began at $5,380 while the coupe cost an additional $200. The Coupe 2+2 sold for $5,870 which was nearly the same price as its stablemate, the 420 Sedan.
