beautiful 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Convertible. The paint is in excellent condition and it is apparent that this car was garaged and meticulously-maintained. The interior is virtually flawless and is equipped with all the right options. 45,871 miles. You can’t go wrong with this fabulous vehicle! 265 bhp, 4,235 cc DOHC inline six-cylinder engine with triple SU carburetors, four-speed manual transmission with full synchromesh, independent front suspension with transverse wishbones, torsion bars, telescopic shocks, and an anti-roll bar, independent rear suspension with lower transverse tubular links and twin coil springs, and four-wheel Dunlop twin-circuit hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 96 in. Jaguar had enjoyed great success with its XK series of sports cars, but the E-Type was not, as might have been expected, a continuation of the XK150. Instead, the XKE (as it was dubbed in the U.S.) was based largely upon a pair of prototype racing cars, E1A and E2A, which themselves borrowed heavily from the very successful monocoque-bodied D-Type racing chassis. In fact, E2A was the intended replacement for the D. Following earlier precedent, there would be two versions of the new E-Type, an open two-seater, or roadster, and a fixed head coupe, both with sleek and curvaceous bodies designed by Malcolm Sayer, a pioneer in automotive aerodynamics.
