Description

E TYPE It was she who gave birth to the myth and ushered in the era of modern sports cars.
Beginning in 1964, with the switch to 4.2L, bucket seats gave way to more comfortable reclining seats, and the dashboard and center console were covered with Rexine, a black vinyl, instead of corked aluminum. The radiator, cooling system and fan are significantly improved on the 4.2 L, since the 3.8 L is equipped with an electric fan consisting of a wiper motor on which is mounted a piece of twisted iron as a propeller. This car is hardly usable in modern congested traffic without an auxiliary fan. The Moss gearbox has been replaced by a fully synchronized Jaguar gearbox, which is nicer if not efficient.
