This Serie 1 1/2 Jag has a Serie 2 Bonnet. I believe it is not original.
Am I right?

I believe the hood is correct because the air intake is smaller than Series 2 and the turn lights are mounted above the bumper. The open headlights are correct for a Series 1.5

Hi,
yes that's NOT a S2 bonnet, but a S1/S1.5 bonnet. BTW in UK English "hood" is the top of a convertible.
The headlamp "Eyebrows" looked to be as if they would be S2, I think it would have been possible to mount the S2 headlamps and headlamp buckets and chrome trim to a S1 bonnet, the headlamp will be a bit further to the front, but I am unsure based on these photos as I'm no expert on the S 1.5 headlamp chrome trim and eyebrows. As this car is RHD and clearly S 1.5 MY1968 the bonnet is most likely original and even the headlamps could be as well. The S2 bumbers, radiator intake opening and sidelamps/indicators are all different. Cheers!

Hy
I agree, this is a S1/S1.5 bonnet. The headlamps are clearly S2, they are a bit further in front than S1.5, and the eyebrows are bigger than S1.5. Would the car delivered in this configuration in 1968. I don't think so....
It would be interesting to have an expert's opinion.
Cheers.

More evidence work has been done in the headlight area is the open seam below the sugar scoops, those were leaded in on S1 cars with open headlights. The car would have had open headlights originally, no idea why the S2 style fixtures were installed. No question the so called S1.5 fixtures will be very rare, perhaps that's why.

1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Litre 2+2 Coupé
Registration no. WGC 136F Chassis no. 1E51267BW Engine no. 7E-54938-9
£23,000 - 26,000
€32,000 - 36,000

Manufactured in 1968 during this transitional period, this 'Series 1½' 2+2 Coupé has the Series 2 steering column lock (never connected) and the Series 1 dashboard. The car was purchased by the current vendor from the deceased owner's son in March 2012, minus engine and gearbox. His father had sold the original engine and automatic transmission and was in the process of fitting a more modern engine and five-speed manual 'box. There are invoices on file totalling £13,418 for work carried out between 1992 and 2007. Since acquisition, a Jaguar 420 engine and four-speed manual gearbox have been fitted, the former being re-stamped with original's number: '7E-54938-9'. The car has also been fitted with wider wheels/tyres, XJ6 rear brakes and a stainless steel exhaust. Parts renewed during the recent restoration include the clutch; six-branch manifold; main and big-end bearings; timing chains; piston rings; brake, servo and clutch seals; brake pipes; disc pads, carpets, etc while the oil pump has been refaced (oil pressure is said to be excellent). Total expenditure since 2102 amounts to £7,160, which does not include any labour, making the total since 1992 over £20,500. During that period the car has covered fewer than 7,000 miles. There is a full photographic record on file of work carried out since 2012 together with a Heritage Certificate, DVLA ownership records, some expired MoTs and two old tax discs. The E-Type also comes with a handbook in Jaguar folder; tool roll and tools (almost complete); and a new Thor mallet. Finished in British Racing Green with black part-leather interior, the latter equipped with Pioneer radio/CD player and speakers, the car is described as in generally very good condition and offered with a current MoT and V5C document.
