Model History:

1961 thru mid-1962 the early E Types had very distinctive features to the early XKE’s. Including flat floors, welded louvered bonnets, aluminum dash with center console and early style bucket seats. The early coupes also featured a slightly different shaped rear glass on the hatch door. Jaguar’s E-type featured a monocoque passenger compartment and tail section, a tube-framed engine bay, and a tilting bonnet. With its well-appointed interior, civilized 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine, and a compliant suspension, the E-type was an ideal two-place sports car. The XKE has looks to die for, with sweeping lines and an aggressive yet undeniable sensual stance. All these features make it a very desirable XKE for the collector!
