Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series 1 FHC

car description

About this Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Series 1 FHC 1964 brought the advent of a number of changes for the E-Type, namely the 4.2-litre engine. Although still offering the same 265 brake horsepower as the earlier 3.8-litre engine, the 4.2-litre motor now offered 83 more foot-pounds of torque. Another major change was the fitment of a new gearbox: a fully synchronized, four-speed manual transmission with a new Laycock diaphragm clutch. Engine cooling was also revised, and there was a new alternator to replace the generator. The brakes were improved with better power-assist, and the seatbacks were now adjustable. These changes greatly improved the overall feel and driving dynamics of the car, improving on Jaguar’s already brilliant design. Therefore with the above in mind, it is of popular opinion that the Series 1 4.2 is the E Type to buy as it retains the beauty of its predecessor (cowelled healamps etc) but has the huge benefit of the various modifications as listed above. This particular example has been modified to a fast road example and is fitted with sports triple Webber Carburetors for intake and a tubular stainless steel manifold for exhaust and an uprated aluminium radiator w
