Technical specifications, photos and description:
1966 Jaguar E-Type XKE 4. 2 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) LHD for sale
Location: Halifax. Canada
Serial number 1E32308
The most desirable combination of iconic and undiluted Jaguar style. power. and refinement. Aside from being heralded as the most beautiful car of all time. the 1965 to 1967 series 1 FHC also boasted the larger capacity and torquier triple SU carb 4. 2 engine and synchromesh gearbox. The lovely glass covered headlamps and the cockpit's toggle switch gear were retained from previous model years. There were only 4. 49 E-Type FHCs produced in LHD between 1965 and 1967. according to XKEdata. significantly rarer than OTS roadsters of the same vintage.
This is a solid driver kept in one family from 1987 to 2015 but could benefit from a restoration. Mileage indicates 53. 62 but may have ticked over.
Mechanically sound. over $20k in work has been undertaken over the last 600 miles driven. This includes 4 new tires. coils. plugs. clutch. rad fan. valve job. engine seals. SU carbs float / valve / gasket / jet / diaphragm. brake servo / master. water pump. v-belt. distributor rotor / cap. fuel pump. front rotors / pads / caliper rebuild. coolant hoses. battery. fluid changes. etc. Cylinder head is non-matching. indicative of an engine swap at some point in its life. Unfortunately the matching engine is long gone.
According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. the original color was opalescent maroon and during a refresh some years ago it was painted old English white. There are many imperfections with the paint finish including bubbling in places. but nice enough to the untrained eye. The floor panels are solid with no major rust evident but there is surface oxidation in the foot wells and most likely more rust lurking in hidden cracks and seams.
Still a sporty driver. this E Type could continue as such. or a worthwhile restoration project that could include performance upgrades.
Please message me with any further questions. and I am happy to respond.
