1966 Jaguar E-Type XKE 4.2 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) LHD for sale
Location: Halifax, Canada
Serial number 1E32308
This is a solid driver kept in one family from 1987 to 2015 but could benefit from a restoration. Mileage indicates 53,062 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.
