Brighton Motorsports is proud to present this 1968 Jaguar XKE Roadster.
In 1968 Jaguar began the change to the Series II E Type, however the Series 1 body was still used so the 1968 E Types are referred to as Series 1 ½. The main differences between the Series 1 and the Series 1 ½ is the dashboard toggle switches were changed to rocker switches, the headlights are open instead of covered, the cam covers are finned and Stromberg carburetors were used instead of SU carburetors.
This Series 1 ½ Roadster has had a complete restoration by Classic Showcase of Oceanside California, a premier Jaguar restoration facility.
It is finished in the correct Old English White exterior and black leather interior and both are in stellar.
The car is powered by a numbers-matching 4.2 liter, inline 6 cylinder power plant mated to the correct Jaguar 4 speed manual transmission.
This car drives wonderfully and has a fantastic exhaust note. It needs nothing to be enjoyed right now!
Today the series 1 ½ Jaguars are appreciating quickly in value because of their similarity to the series 1 Jaguars which have risen greatly in value in recent years.
If you are looking for a stunning collector quality Jaguar Roadster for your driving enjoyment then you have found your car!
