The Jaguar E-Type models included in Series 1.5 have some common features with the Series I and Series II models. For example, the model has open headlights like the Series II, but there are features of the Series I, such as a smaller opening in the front grille, modified taillights, and turn indicators at the corners of the front bumper.

Other key exterior features include a brown padded top, a hood with blinds, and a chrome-plated driver’s side mirror. Polished 15-inch wire wheels with tires with red stripes make a great sports car.

For those who don’t know, the E-Type is the same as the XKE, it was just sold as the XKE in the USA. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cars ever created. This particular copy was included in the list of service books dating back to 1970, manufacturer’s documentation, and a clean title in California.

It was originally painted in a shade dubbed Sable but was repainted in the current shade of dark green. Contrasting elements of the exterior are the seats covered with brown leather, and the door panels to match.

Power is provided by a 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine equipped with two SU carburetors and producing 246 hp and 356 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a four-speed manual transmission that drives the rear wheels.

The car has traveled about 64,000 km since its release from the factory.
