1967 Jaguar E Type Coupe 4.2 4 Speed on 2040-cars

Year:1967 Mileage:72973

Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States

Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States

       Desirable 1967 E type Coupe.

       This is a somewhat familiar story. Car had a refurbishment started, client sadly became ill, years passed, car was never finished. I bought the car from the fellow who bought it from the restoration shop who had ended up buying the car from the client.

       Lot of the hard work is done but the car is a good ways from finished. It appears this was a decent driver level car when started. At some point it had been repainted and had had minor body work performed previously. The nose was lightly hit and repaired, but it was an amateur job. It still needs some tweaking. A little bit of mud was used in font and behind the rear wheel  on the lips. At this time it looks to have had the floors relatively recently replaced and some metal work on the driver's inner rocker/footwell area. It still needs the passenger area addressed. Over all the body is pretty clean. It appears most of the rust was from the carpet holding moisture from water intrusion. Exception being the passenger door lower skin needs replaced.

       The refurbishment looks to have mostly been done under the bonnet. The engine was rebuilt (Cyrille Leseller). New radiator. Some of the front suspension rebuilt. Front brakes refurbished (hoses ,pads, hardware, calipers, master cylinder), General tidying up and painting of the frame, etc. I wouldn't call it a concourse finish but overall nice looking.

       This is a numbers matching engine. It has not been fired. Fuel supply system is not yet restored or hooked up.

        The rear suspension is untouched.

        Chrome wire wheels in decent condition. With a serious meticulous cleaning they'd be quite nice. Tires look like unused Michelin Xs, but I'm sure they have been mounted for a good while.

       The interior is untouched, needing to probably be replaced if a general restoration is carried out. Some have said that they'd just clean it up, put in carpet and go with it. Your choice. Dash is intact, not split, gauges appear pretty clean. Everything is there and probably original.

       Chrome is probably all original (bumpers look newer or perhaps replated at some point) and shows it's age. Light pitting is present. A few folks said they'd just do the minimum body work and paint, buff the car out and live with that. Just make a driver out of it. Your choice. I don't see evidence of any serious previous damage, just the light bump to the nose.

       Windshield has one star on the passenger side, rear glass is cracked but a replacement is included, other glass is good. Windows crank up and down fine.

        Spare wheel is present, no rust in the wheel well (well, some surface rust perhaps).

        To summarize: a very desirable year, good bones to work with, a lot of the heavy lifting is done, nice project to finish as you like. You've probably noticed, series one Jags are getting pretty dear. Here's your shot at a mighty nice project car.

        Thanks for looking!  Personal inspection welcome.

New Jaguar crossover to be called 'XQ'?

Wed, 08 May 2013 14:16:00 EST

As part of its upcoming portfolio expansion, Jaguar will be adding two key models to its lineup in the next few years. The first is a small, 3 Series-fighting sedan tentatively called XS, and the other is said to be a new crossover, which may be dubbed XQ, as Edmunds reports. Jaguar filed a trademark application for the name "XQ" with the United States Patent and Trademark Office earlier this year, according to the report.
Jaguar executives have long said that the company is investigating new, higher-volume segments for the brand to compete in, and this certainly isn't the first time we've heard rumors of a CUV with a pouncing cat badge. Edmunds opines that since the Land Rover brand will no doubt continue to tackle the more traditional SUV segments, the Jaguar brand could easily house an offering in the luxury crossover market.
As for how a Jaguar CUV could come to fruition, Edmunds offers two suggestions. The first would be to build a vehicle on the smaller platform that will underpin the XS, as it will accommodate both rear- and all-wheel-drive applications and will be used for a number of differently sized vehicles. The second, more logical suggestion, is that the Jag CUV will ride on a version of the all-aluminum D7u platform used in the Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.

2014 Jaguar XFR-S super sedan is 550-HP worth of cool

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 14:30:00 EST

The 2014 Jaguar XFR-S was considered last year, teased last week and now has been totally let loose. The most powerful sedan the company has ever made and the newest addition to its line of R-S performance cars - following the XKR-S - and we'll be getting even fewer of them than we thought. 200 had been the rumored allotment for the US, but the official word now is that we'll see just 100.
Each XFR-S will use the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that powers the XKR-S, meaning a 40-horsepower and 41-pound-foot bump over the XFR for 550 hp and 502 lb-ft in total. Shifting through the adaptive, eight-speed ZF transmission gets it from standstill to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, but for all that, it gets the same gas mileage as the XFR, aided by its stop/start system, and so doesn't get hit with a gas guzzler tax.
Other XKR-S bits have made the jump, including an upgraded suspension front and rear, the near-straight pipes for the cracking exhaust note we drank up like ambrosia and twenty-inch, six-spoke lightweight wheels that are an inch wider than on the XFR. Lateral stiffness is up 30 percent, the electronic systems have been recalibrated to handle the extra oomph, throttle response has been sharpened and can be made even sharper by going into Dynamic Mode.

Jaguar takes bite out of Mercedes' Magic Body Control chicken ad

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 09:29:00 EST

We were quite impressed by Mercedes-Benz when it aired its Magic Body Control commercial, starring a group suitably funky chickens demonstrating their ability to jive to Diana Ross and the Supremes. Now, Jaguar has taken the opportunity to poke some fun at its German rival, releasing its own take on the Magic Body Control spot, and um, there's a big cat involved.
You'll really want to take a look at this video, which is just another sign that in terms of clever ads, Jaguar is doing quite well. We aren't sure if "Jaguar vs. Chicken" will make it onto TV any time soon, but it's still fun to see the British brand take the mickey out of Mercedes - it's rare to see automakers go after each other so bluntly in their marketing efforts. Scroll down to watch the video (we've also included a bonus video, Jag's recent "Cat In A Box" spot).
