An instant icon from its launch at the March 1961 Geneva Salon, Jaguars sexy projectile-shaped E-Type, known as the XKE in America, remains a design benchmark with race-bred performance and continues to captivate sports-car enthusiasts everywhere. As the successor to the glorious C- and D-Type sports racers that propelled Jaguar to 5 Le Mans victories in the 1950s, the E-Type was essentially a racing car for the road, advertised by Jaguar as the first series-production sports car to break the 150-mph barrier. Steady development brought improved interior comfort and from 1964, a larger 4.2-liter engine and synchromesh gearbox. Its original projectile-like styling was left undisturbed and remains universally acclaimed today as a design benchmark, with an E-Type on permanent display at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art.
This outstanding 1966 Jaguar XKE Series I 4.2-Litre roadster continues to benefit from a professional restoration carried out by the marque experts at Fourintune Garage during 2006 for the prior owner. Accompanied by the corresponding Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) certificate listing original data, this fully matching numbers XKE is an original left-hand drive model manufactured on 26 April 1966, originally finished in Carmen Red over Black and shipped to Jaguar Cars, New York for eventual sale on 9 May 1966. Subsequent known history resumes in April 1996, when the car was owned by Jesse Floyd of Columbus, South Carolina, followed by Jerry Bensinger of Hubbard, Ohio from whom the car was purchased by Chuck Webster of Manitowoc, Wisconsin in July 2006 as 66,000 indicated miles with full matching numbers components. As now offered, this outstanding 1966 Jaguar XKE Series I 4.2-Litre Roadster features telescopic steering and an upgraded Kenwood AM/FM CD stereo head unit with twin speakers for additional enjoyment. A Black convertible top and matching boot cover, knock-off wheel hammer and roadside jack are included, plus restoration receipts and the aforementioned JDHT certificate are included. As offered, this XKE is an investment-grade, yet highly enjoyable example of one of the best versions of Jaguars immensely collectible and fast-appreciating Series I XKE. Experience it yourself!
