1967 Jaguar E-Type FHC: Gorgeous, Mechanically Strong Series I Fixed Head Coupe for sale
Offered for sale is an absolutely beautiful. rust-free. numbers matching and fantastically original 1967 Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) finished in Carmen Red over black leather. The recipient of a single. decade old repaint in its factory correct color. the car is otherwise original. a solid and mechanically strong example that is ready to be enjoyed as is. or as an exceptional platform for a concours level restoration.
This is not a fully restored example – something that's actually becoming somewhat scarce in Series I cars – and accordingly the car has its share of imperfections (soft dings. a scratch here and there – all minor). but as the pictures exhibit. the car remains exceptionally attractive. The paint is still deep and lustrous. polishing up nicely and cloaking an entirely original body that's free of bondo or any evidence of accident repairs.
The panel fits and gaps are all consistent and correct and rust has clearly never been allowed to invade either the car's body or its undercarriage. which is entirely original and solid. The brightwork is in excellent original condition. as is all the original glass and rubber. and the original chrome knock off wheels are wrapped in radial tires with plenty of remaining tread.
The car's interior is equally as clean. Despite the car's age the black leather seats. interior panels and dark carpets are all in excellent original condition. showing merely the patina one would expect of a well-cared-for. original example. The headliner is immaculate. as is the center console and dash. housing all of the original toggle switches and the original radio.
Mechanically the car is a joy to drive. the venerable. 4. 2L inline 6 cylinder engine firing up easily. idling consistently and pulling strongly and smoothly through each of the gearbox's four gears. Compression is excellent and the dual exhaust emits the requisite “big cat” howl. ensuring that every driver's experience is thrilling from behind the wheel. Ride quality is exceptionally good. with straight and true braking and entirely solid handling. yielding a car that's a joy to drive. especially on wide-open back roads.
This represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a rapidly appreciating classic that has all the right things going for it: numbers matching. rust-free. extremely original and mechanically sound. finished in a desirable. factory correct livery. As the market on Series I cars continues to rise at dizzying rates. acquiring what is arguably the most desirable model year of the run (the final year of the 4. 2L engine. closed headlamps. enlarged cockpit. etc. ) is sure to be a wise and grin-inducing decision. regardless of whether you intend on enjoying it as a gorgeous weekend driver or as a truly fantastic platform for a concours level restoration.

We've always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we'd personally be interested in owning and generally only sell them to make room for other acquisitions. That time has come for this Jaguar (if the price is right. of course – this isn't a fire sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling. but we're enthusiasts. not experts. and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding. as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.
For U. S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction's end. the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction's end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction's end. Buyer is responsible for shipping. however we'd be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction's end. Thanks for your interest.
