Its slinky, shapely body still captures attention, even in 2+2 form. This E-Type is one of 5,326 examples made between 1968 and 1971 and was made in Jaguar’s Coventry, England factory. Finished in Opalescent Maroon (code 2662), the car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The car’s bodywork is straight and solid and its curved, chrome bumpers look fantastic as they blend with the body lines. The car’s engine bay is very tidy, the battery appears to be new, the cargo area is in very good order. This Jag rolls on Vredstein Sprint Classic radials, size 185 HR15 at all four wheels. Each radial is mounted to a factory wire wheel. The wheels and tires remain in overall very good order. Under the massive bonnet is Jaguar’s 4.2L straight six-cylinder engine. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial “ribbed” appearance. It was de-tuned in the US with twin Strombergs and larger valve clearances, but in the UK retained triple SUs and the much tighter valve clearances. The 4.2 produced the same power as the previous 3.8L and reached the same top speed but increased torque approximately 10 percent. Acceleration remained pretty much the same but maximum power was now reached at 5,400 rpm instead of 5,500 rpm on the 3.8-litre. That meant better throttle response for drivers that did not want to shift down gears. The 4.2-litre’s block was completely redesigned, made longer to accommodate five mm larger bores, and the crankshaft modified to use newer bearings. Other engine upgrades included a new alternator/generator and an electric cooling fan for the radiator. Backing this motor is a four-speed transmission and a 3.54:1 rear end. Driver convenience features include independent front and rear suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and Girling four-wheel disc brakes. Inside, the car’s Cinnamon Connolly leather seats are in very good order, while the matching Wilton wool carpet is in good, original order, as is the neutral-colored headliner. The thin-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel with its circular holes in the spokes is symbolic of the “mod” era. The Cinnamon inner door panels and contrasting black instrument panel are all in very good order. Completing the interior are the floor shifter and an Alpine AM/FM stereo with cassette deck. A 2+2 version of the fastback coupé was added in 1966. The body is nine inches longer and the roof angles are different. The roadster and the non 2+2 FHC (Fixed Head Coupé) remained as two-seaters. The Series II introduced a number of design changes, largely due to U.S. design legislation. The most distinctive exterior feature is the absence of the glass headlight covers, which affected several other imported cars, like the Citroën DS, as well. Unlike other cars, this step was applied worldwide for the E-Type, not just to Americans living under the authority of the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. Other hallmarks of Series II cars are a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, an enlarged “mouth” which aided cooling, twin electric fans, plastic rocker switches in place of the Series I toggle switches, and a downgrading in performance resulting from a switch from the three SU carburetors used in Series I models to a mere two “smogged” Stromberg carbs. A combination steering lock and ignition key was fitted to the steering column, which replaced the dashboard mounted ignition switch and charismatic push button starter. A new steering column was fitted with a collapsible section in the event of an accident. New seats were fitted which allowed the fitment of head restraints, as required by U.S. law beginning in 1969. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned; rocker switches that met US health and safety regulations were substituted for toggle switches. The dashboard switches also lost their symmetrical layout. Its combination of beauty, high performance, and competitive pricing established the model as an icon of the motoring world. The E-Type’s 150 mph top speed, sub-seven-second 0 to 60 mph acceleration, monocoque construction, disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension distinguished the car and spurred industry-wide changes. On its release in March 1961 Enzo Ferrari called it “the most beautiful car ever made.” In 2004, Sports Car International magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in The Daily Telegraph online list of the World’s “100 most beautiful cars” of all time. Outside automotive circles, the E-type received prominent placement in Diabolik comic series, Austin Powers films and the television series Mad Men. Documentation includes original operating maintenance and service handbook, original Passport to Service, carrying case, original, fold-out chassis diagram with maintenance intervals and lubrication guide, and other information. Competition to this E-Type in 1969 included AMC’s AMX and Javelin coupes, Chevrolet’s Camaro and Corvette, De Tomaso’s Mangusta, Dodge’s Charger, Ford’s Mustang, Iso’s Grifo and Rivolta, Lotus’ Elan S4, Mercury’s Cougar and Cyclone, Shelby’s Mustang GT 350, Plymouth’s Barracuda, Pontiac’s Firebird and Porsche’s 911S coupe.
