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

The XE may prove to be the most vital new model to Jaguar's expansion. But to date we've only really seen it in top-spec, supercharged XE S form. That ends right here and now, however, as Jaguar releases details, photos and even a brief video clip showing the entire range - including those most customers are bound to buy.
Globally speaking - or at least in its home market - Jaguar will offer the XE with five different engines and in four different trim levels. The new Ingenium engine family includes two diesels and two turbocharged gasoline options along with the top-of-the-line supercharged V6 that will serve as the XE's performance flagship model, at least until a new SVR version comes along. Both six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions are on offer, and overseas buyers will also be able to choose between base SE, mid-range Prestige, opulent Portfolio, dynamic R-Sport and range-topping S trim levels.
Of course not every engine is available in each trim level and with either transmission, so instead of 40 combinations we're looking at 22. Once the XE reaches American showrooms, we'll likely be looking at even fewer, as we're not expecting the manual and diesel versions to be offered Stateside. Stay tuned as well for our live impressions from the floor of the Paris Motor Show. But in the meantime you can scope out all the details and UK specifications in the press release below, along with the short video and the gallery of 74 high-resolution images above.
For athletes, the cold is often a powerful ally in treating injures, with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) a popular means of treating muscle pulls, bruising and other common forms of discomfort. Did you know, though, that frosty temps are also popular tools for simply recovering from a rough training session?
Well, we're guessing Jaguar Land Rover knew that, as the British company was kind enough to loan out its climactic testing chamber to Jaco van Gass and Luke Darlington, a pair of veterans wounded in their service to Queen and Country. Van Gass, a former private in the Royal Army, and Darlington, a Royal Marine, are attempting to earn a spot on the British Armed Forces cycling team for the upcoming Invictus Games.
The Games, inspired by the Warrior Games held in the United States, are a sporting competition reserved for injured servicemen and women, either active duty or veterans, and is slated to take place from September 10 to 14 in London's former Olympic venues. Van Gass lost his left arm below the elbow after getting hit by a rocket-propelled grenade (he also suffered from a collapsed lung, punctured internal organs, severe shrapnel and blast wounds, a broken tibia and a fractured knee). Darlington, meanwhile, suffered a traumatic brain injury during action in Afghanistan, and he now suffers from weakness in his right side and cognitive issues.
While the debut of the XFR-S is likely fresh on everyone's minds and browser windows, the other big story of late at Jaguar is the F-Type coupe and convertible. Originally unveiled in Paris, the LA show was the first opportunity that the sub-XK performance machine will be seen Stateside. However, it was not just the same news that we first heard in Paris, as Jaguar used LA to showcase its newly available "Black" design pack.
This styling package includes gloss black finishes for the grill surround, side vents, a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel, gloss black interior touches, and instrument panel rings. This package is available with Ultimate Black, Polaris White, Italian Racing Red, Rhodium Silver, Grey and Firesand (seen above) body colors.
The Black pack can be had on either the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 model, or the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 version. Specific additional "Black" tweaks are available based on which derivative you select. Specifically, a gloss-black rear valence is a V6-only modification.
