The Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe is a distinguished model within the E-Type series, celebrated for its refined performance and timeless design. Crafted by Jaguar Cars Ltd, this classic sports car is known for its iconic appearance and engaging driving dynamics.
Powered by a 4.2-litre inline-six engine, the E-Type Series 1 4.2 FHC delivers a balanced and potent performance, representing an enhancement over its predecessors. The Fixed Head Coupe variant, featuring a fixed hardtop roof, contributes to a sleek and elegant aesthetic. Distinctive design elements such as covered headlights, an elongated bonnet, and a well-appointed interior with leather seats and a wooden dashboard characterise this model.
The E-Type underwent significant updates, including the adoption of the 4.2-litre engine and improvements in features like comfier reclining seats and uprated braking systems. These changes mark a pivotal moment in the evolution of the E-Type series.
Beyond its design and performance, the E-Type Series 1 4.2 FHC holds historical significance and is recognised as a sought-after collectable. Its enduring appeal lies in the combination of timeless design, robust performance, and limited production numbers.
Available to purchase at Hilton & Moss, at our Bishops Stortford showroom, this 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 FHC is finished in stunning Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior trim. Notably, this particular model distinguishes itself with the inclusion of chrome wire wheels, replacing the standard painted wire wheels. The chrome wire wheels not only enhance the car's aesthetic appeal but also introduce a touch of sophistication to its exterior.
Originally registered in the UK in April 1967 as a home-market original RHD car, this vehicle has undergone meticulous care, including £34,600 worth of work completed since 2020, the car is presented in fabulous condition. Recent major invoices from the Hilton & Moss team include comprehensive engine bay refinement and detailing, brake system overhaul, perishable hoses and rubbers renewed, new battery, new seatbelts, new carpets, full paint correction, gearbox rebuild, new door seals, new tyres, new engine mounts and a full carburettor tune to name just a few key works. The car also comes with Jaguar Heritage Trust certification.
Importantly, this particular model retains its authenticity as a matching numbers vehicle, with the exception of a recent upgrade to a 5-speed fully synchronised gearbox, providing enhanced grand touring capabilities, while preserving the car's originality. The car also benefits from upgraded Cooper Craft front brakes. These upgrades elevate the driving experience, providing smoother transitions between gears and greater stopping power.
This E-Type not only looks stunning but is also a very useable car, reflecting the commitment to both aesthetic and mechanical excellence. Underside inspection can be arranged upon request for additional peace of mind during the purchasing process.
