Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 For Sale

by Mike –

The Jaguar E-Type (or XKE) needs no introduction. It is well known that the E-Type is one of the most beautiful cars ever produced. Based on the D-Type, a very successful race car, the E-Type has the speed and acceleration to match its looks. It also inherited many of the performance features of its ancestors like disc brakes, monocoque construction, rack and pinion steering and independent front and rear suspension.

A perennially favorite on all the lists of best sports cars and most beautiful cars, the Jaguar E-Type will always be a great car to own and drive and it will always be a great collector car.

History

Introduced before the advent of the second generation of Jaguar’s brilliant E-Type, the aptly-named “Series 1½ or 1.5” E-Type combines the 4.2-liter engine and handsome body style of its predecessor, while incorporating many changes more commonly associated with its successor. These changes include twin Zenith-Stromberg carburetors, twin cooling fans, adjustable seats, and, most notably, open headlights. The car also includes four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes, with the rear discs fitted next to the differential to reduce un-sprung weight, and, most importantly, fully independent suspension on all four wheels.

The first owner of chassis number 1E 16192 was Edward S. Davis, who was the chairman of the New York City printing concern Davis-Delaney-Arrow Inc.

This Jaguar is a matching numbers car with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The original color was willow green with black interior.

This 1967 Series 1.5 E-Type Roadster is in excellent condition following a complete restoration, which was finished in late 2015. Before it was refinished in its period correct color combination of Golden Sand with a Tan leather interior and Biscuit soft top, the car was stripped to bare metal and every component was restored or replaced as needed. The results speak for themselves, this E-Type is a special Jaguar. Photos of the restoration and invoices are available.

    A great car, and as described by Mike. It is the road car inspired on the D-type Jaguar. The D-type of course is a competition car that shares many technical features of its predecessor, the C type, and is known for its big exploits at Le Mans, by winning it three consecutive times. (1955, 1956 and 1957)
    An interesting feature is that the XK120-C, also known as the C-type was fitted with disc brakes.
    The E-type series I.5 featured the 4.2 l engine as opposed to the inital 1 series fitted with its 3.8 l XK engine, whilst retaining its external body shape.
    Personally I think that Enzo Ferrari’s love for front engined sporrtscars made him declare that the described the E-type as the most beautiful sports car in the world.
    Therefore Enzo’s testimony is an extra contribution to justify the high price of the the E type.
    Furthermore, the more reliable and more powerfull 4.2 engine therefore make it the most sought after E type.
    However the initial E type should never been forgotten and we should be thankfull to the keepers of this car.

  2. Amazing Example !

  4. There is no such thing as a series 1.5 Jag. Jaguar cars only made three series of the E-Type. Your Heritage Certificate should state as such.

    Series 1 cars run from intro up to and through 1968. Series 2 begins in 1969…

    • The Heritage Certificate lists this car as a Series 1 4.2 Litre. But the seller wanting to be as accurate as possible correctly lists it as a series 1.5 because there are a few differences between the series 1 and the series 1.5 which he mentions in the first paragraph under “History”.

      Wikipedia says this,

      Later model updates of the E-Type were officially designated “Series 2” and “Series 3”, and over time the earlier cars have come to be referred to as “Series 1.” As with other largely hand made cars of the time, changes were incremental and ongoing, which has led to confusion over exactly what is a Series 1 car.

      Some transitional examples exist. For example, while Jaguar itself never recognised a “Series 1½” or “Series 1.5,” over time, this sub-category has been recognised by the Jaguar Owners Club of Great Britain and other leading authorities.
