Even Enzo Ferrari hailed it as "the most beautiful car ever made," and it's easy to see why when you lay eyes on this British Racing Green 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1. The car's sleek lines and low profile are accentuated by a shimmering coat of green that has been expertly applied during a meticulous repaint. It's not just any green; it's British Racing Green. Every inch is crafted to perfection, from the iconic front grille to the smoothly curved rear. The gleaming Dayton chrome wire knock-off wheels, sized at a perfect 15", complement the car's elegant stance, open headlights, while the dual exhaust tips give it that distinct Jaguar sound. Sporting power disc brakes on both ends further enhance its performance.
The fully restored light tan interior speaks volumes of luxury and comfort. The seats, adorned in supple leather, invite you to savor every moment of the ride. Every component, from the flawlessly clean dash pad to the pristine console, has been attended to with the utmost care. The stock gauges and steering wheel retain the classic Jaguar feel, while modern touches like the vintage-style AM/FM/AUX stereo provide convenience. It's an interior that envelops you in a class that only Jaguar owners know.
Underneath the polished bonnet lies pure power: a 4.2-liter engine, believed to be original, with a numbers-matching block according to the I.D. plate. Though the cylinder head has been replaced during the extensive restoration to achieve the correct 9:1 compression ratio, it doesn't detract from the car's authenticity. Fueled by triple S.U. carbs and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, this engine is a marvel of engineering. The car also features a factory-independent suspension equipped with a dual-circuit braking system.
