Impeccably restored and updated by a passionate Jaguar collector. Matching numbers drivetrain. One of the finest examples of the rare covered-headlamp 2+2 available today.
This exceptional 1967 E-Type is arguably one of the finest restored first series 2+2s extant. This remarkable automobile has been treated to a ground-up, nut-and-bolt restoration performed by a noted Jaguar collector and enthusiast who has no fewer than five JCNA National Championship restorations under his belt. This example is one of just a handful of Series 1 2+2s to be equipped from new with the Borg-Warner automatic transmission, as indicated by the “BW” suffix on the serial number. A host of sensible upgrades improve the driving experience, without sacrificing the factory-correct appearance.
According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate, this US-specification car was delivered new in May 1966, with the first owner listed as Winifred H. Hahn. The current owner acquired the car in original condition over 30 years ago, and he has since transformed it into one of the finest examples of the 2+2 in the country. Fresh from a meticulous restoration, it is now finished in a striking color combination of black over red leather. In the process, the body was stripped down to a bare shell, and any corrosion corrected with high-quality, factory-correct panels. Bodywork is absolutely straight and crisp, with excellent fit and alignment of the doors, bonnet, and hatch. The black paintwork is impeccable, highlighted by freshly restored chrome trim and fittings. It rides on gorgeous chrome wire wheels, shod with period-look 185-15 redline radial tires. Over the course of the project, every screw, washer, and piece of hardware has been painstakingly restored to show-quality standards, and the results are outstanding.
