An original left-hand-drive Series 1 roadster Beautifully finished and presented. in great colors Numbers-matching Engine Whether you referred to it as an E-Type or XKE. this Jaguar was most assuredly the sexiest car of the 1960s. It followed the Jaguar formula—sensational looks and sensational performance—which had been introduced so successfully with the XK 120 in 1949 that it was restated with vigor in 1961. The youthful curves of the XK 120 had matured with the XK 150. while the E-Type made Jaguar young and exciting once again. Replacing the voluptuousness of the former car was the sleekness of the new one. What remained. however. was the undeniable sex appeal of the Jaguar formula. The E-Type was preceded by the competition D-Type of the mid-1950s and its short-lived production version. the XK SS of 1957. Like the D-Type. the new car used monocoque construction. The front of the chassis featured a space-frame with steel tubes that supported the engine. front suspension. and hinged hood and fender assembly. which lifted to provide virtually unlimited engine access. The proven twin-cam inline six-cylinder engine of the former 150 S. a four-wheel independent suspension. and disc brakes at each corner were featured; additionally. 150 mph was promised—all of this for a price of only $6. 00! A comprehensive restoration. completed in 2004. including a finish in the factory shade of Opalescent Silver Blue. The color is striking against the dark blue leather interior and blue soft-top. as well as the chrome wire wheels shod in blackwall tires. The E-Type is still beautifully finished and presented. as well as retaining its original matching-numbers engine.
