Jaguar E-type OTS Series 1.5 1968 for sale
The Jaguar E-Type, a British sports car manufactured from 1961 to 1975, is an automotive icon celebrated for its timeless design and outstanding performance. Revered for its aerodynamic elegance, powerful engines, and cutting-edge features such as independent suspension and disc brakes, the E-Type quickly became a symbol of automotive excellence. Often hailed as one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the E-Type legacy endures as a testament to Jaguar's commitment to blending style and performance in a truly iconic package. The Series 1.5 Jaguar E-Type, produced in 1968, represents a transitional phase in the iconic sports car's evolution. A blend between the series 1 and series 2, in some ways offering the best of both worlds.

Interior: The Jaguar E-Type's interior presents a simple, clean, and elegant black leather design. While the seats have been reupholstered at some point, they today exhibit a nice worn in aesthetic. As a Series 1.5 E-Type, it combines the timeless exterior of early models with a more comfortable and accommodating interior. The adjustable backrest, a feature not seen in earlier models, adds to the comfort. Being a convertible, it offers easier entry and exit, making it a more accommodating choice, especially for taller individuals. Additionally, the car is equipped with seatbelts for added safety. Other interior details such as gauges, dashboard, and buttons are in good condition.

Exterior: Finished in the classic Primrose Yellow, the exterior of this 1968 Jaguar Series 1.5 E-Type showcases a timeless appeal. The paint is in good condition, suitable for a nice driver's car. Chrome parts have been restored and are in excellent shape. Notably, the Series 1.5 exterior retains the side markers and taillights from earlier Series 1 cars but features unique headlights exclusive to this model year.

Engine and Mechanics: The car's mechanics are in excellent condition, delivering a satisfying driving experience. The steering feels responsive, and the 4.2-liter straight-six engine produces a beautiful exhaust note. With enough power to keep up with modern traffic, the engine and gearbox contribute to the overall enjoyable performance of this classic Jaguar.

History and Documentation: Originally sold in the USA, this Jaguar E-Type made its way to Sweden in 1969. Throughout its journey, caring owners have meticulously documented the car's history, with impressive records including MOT papers dating back to the '70s and numerous old service records. The current owner, having had the car for six years, has embarked on extensive journeys, including a trip back to the car's home in the UK.
