This Series 1 E-type looks like a sleek and sexy driver. As a ’67, it offers the best of both worlds – you get the smaller bumpers of the earlier cars without the pollution controls that robbed some of the performance of the later ones. And on top of that, it’s in a great color combination, even if it was originally British Racing Green.
The seller says the paint is in generally good condition and that the body gaps are consistent throughout the car. There’s no rust to speak of, and the beige leather interior has been redone at some point and is still in pretty nice shape. The clutch and transmission are both in good working order too, which is a big deal, since replacing the clutch in one of these requires pulling the engine — not a small job.
In terms of the overall sports car experience, there isn’t much that can touch an open E-type. You get great performance from the fully independent suspension, a snarling six breathing through triple carbs, decent disc brakes, and more. And since this one is nice but not perfect, you won’t be afraid to actually take it out and use it.
