“Designed by a noted aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer, the E-type was meant to cheat the wind, but its glass covered headlights, long hood, short rear deck and compound curves also coincidentally looked great. With a 0-60 time of around seven seconds and a 150 mph top speed, the Series I E-type was near the top of the early 1960s food chain. A 2+2 coupe was added to the coupe and convertible body styles in 1966. The 2+2 was the first E-type to be available with an automatic transmission. Parts are easy to find and not terribly expensive for any version of the E-type.” – hemmings.com

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this highly original example of the 1966 Jaguar XKE for your consideration. This vehicle has come to the United States since being ordered new and has not been available for sale since its inception! Brought to live in California the majority of its life, this is a highly unmolested example of one of the most iconic vehicles of its time and is in good running condition. We are told that it still has its original straight six-cylinder engine and all-synchromesh four-speed manual transmission. The exterior is of driver quality with what appears to be the original paint, original bumpers, even its original wheels and tires. Within this time capsule you will see the original black leather interior, the dash is in good shape with the pull starter system, beautiful slim line handles get you into the cockpit and the rumble as you start the car makes the power almost palpable.

This vehicle was one of the first of its time to feature the independent coil spring rear suspension and had the added bonus of torsion bar front ends. The factory also provided 4-wheel disc brakes which were all power-assisted. The vehicle is most recognized by its glass-covered headlights which this model still has and in great shape and the top speed of 150 mph which was registered when this vehicle first came out, this is certainly enough even for modern standards! Call or email us for a closer look at your new favorite ride today!
