Description

1967 JAGUAR E-TYPE 4.2 LITER SERIES 1 ROADSTER:
--Opalescent Silver with Red leather interior, Red carpets and Black convertible top, Rotisserie Restoration by Marque Specialist, Performance upgrades and 5-speed gearbox, Air Conditioning, Bespoke stereo system, Concours condition, Chrome wire wheels, Matching Numbers, Certified by the Jaguar Heritage Trust.

This E-type Roadster is a matching numbers example. According to its Heritage Certificate it was delivered new to the U.S. market and sold new by Jaguar Cars New York to its first registered owner Mr. David Reimens of Wharton, Texas on July 17th, 1967.

This E-type has been a Texas car for almost all of its life with several documented owners. Purchased in 2012 by a Mr. J. King of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mr. King to send the E-type to Texas based Jaguar expert, Dan Mooney’s Classic Jaguar for a thorough nut-and-bolt restoration that also provided an upgraded level of performance while aiming for cosmetic authenticity a restoration to exacting concours standard.

The original matching-numbers engine was completely rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted. New high-performance camshafts, enlarged stainless steel valves, Forged pistons, lightweight flywheel, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator were fitted for improved performance. For better road holding and drivability, Classic Jaguar added a five-speed transmission, Wilwood brakes, Koni shocks, upgraded torsion bars and wider, polished Dayton wire wheels mounted with Dunlop performance tires. Cosmetically the choice was made to retrofit a Series 1 bonnet with covered headlamps. Although not significantly altered from its original configuration, this E-type boasts approximately 300 horsepower in its current form. A complete list of upgrades can be seen within the photos.

The restoration took over two years and upwards of $250,000.00. All receipts are available. Previously sold to a good client of Autosport Designs, it has since received the addition of air conditioning as well as a bespoke stereo system, by a well-known Pennsylvania vintage car specialist. It has also been maintained by this specialist regardless of use to remain ready for use and touring pleasure at a moment’s notice.

This E-type has been driven less than 2,000 miles since restoration. It is superb in every way!
