Description for Jaguar E-Type 1968

1968 Jaguar XKE Series 1.5. Open headlights with a Series 1 body.

I purchased the car in 2013 and brought it to Colorado. It is originally a South Carolina car. The original owner was Dr. I.M. Ibrahimof Clemson university. I believe I am the 4th owner of the car. I rate the car as a nice Driver Level car. I only drive it on fine days otherwise it is always garaged. It looks fantastic, drives well and gets a lot of attention. It is not a trailer queen, that said it presents very well and I regularly show it at the Colorado Conclave. The Head is not original to the car, it was replaced by a previous owner. The car also had a respray of the original primrose yellow, I would rate the paint as 7.5 out of 10. It shines well and is in good condition, however under close inspection, there are some dings and chips from normal use. I have tried to capture the ding in one of the photos, it is difficult to see unless the light is just right. Both Floor pans have been replaced by a Previous Owner. There is a small section of body filler in driver’s side sill just behind the battery box. It is not a problem, but something to keep an eye on if the car moves to a damp climate. I have captured it in one of the photos. The interior is in good condition. I believe the seats are the originals. The Armrest was professionally replaced last summer. The Soft Top is in good condition as is the Boot cover. Overall it is a wonderful car. The only reason I’m selling, is because I have too many cars (or so my wife says ????). I don’t have enough room, or time to drive and enjoy them all.

The car underwent significant Mechanical work in 2016 including:

  • · Engine re-build
  • · Transmission service
  • · Cooling system Flush
  • · Brake Service
  • · New Clutch master cylinder
  • · New Clutch Slave cylinder
  • · New Alternator
  • · New Electric Cooling Fan
  • · New Plugs
  • · New Plug Wires
  • · New Coil
  • · Carb rebuild & tune
  • · Choke wires
  • · New Muffler

The Engine rebuild was professionally done by “Thomas Vintage” in Boulder Colorado. I have receipts for approx. $21,000. The rebuilt engine has approx. 450 miles on it.

The car is being sold as-is where-is. I am offering the car locally and reserve the right to end the auction early. There are no warranties expressed or implied.

I require a non-refundable $1000 deposit within 24 hours of the end of the Auction. The car stays with me until all funds have cleared.

I will gladly answer questions and respond as quickly as I can. I also encourage personal inspection prior to the end of the auction. More Photos available upon request.

Thank you for looking and happy bidding !
