1967 Jaguar E-Type XKE 4.2 Coupe - Full Restoration

  • Опубликовано: 23 ноя 2018
  • Watch this 1967 Jaguar XKE - a numbers matching 4.2 coupé that was neglected for many years get transformed to its former glory. Originally finished in Old English White with red interior, the colors certainly did not bring out the fabulous curves of this iconic car. The owner decided that during restoration it would be re-sprayed in Jaguar Dorchester Gray with concours correct blue Conley leather interior to match.

    I actually like the alloy wheels but I think the ten square hole version look better. Fantastic looking car.

    You did a lovely job but why replace the wheels? The wire wheels looked great. The replacements looked cheap.

    AMAZING!!!!...BUT...I'd do the interior in red. Your "up-grades" are PERFECT & logical.
    A 1967, 12 cylinder, silver ( as this one ) with RED leather interior is my "dream" Jag.
    The GREATEST & MOST BEAUTIFUL car ever made.
    THANKS for saving this one & allowing it to live-on...as it TRULY deserves to do.
    Respectfully, Ben

      +brian hutchinson Good grief. It was meant as a light-hearted comment. It is clearly beyond dispute that how good looking something is is a matter of opinion not fact (although your opinion is certainly a minority one). I suggest you try to not to take silly comments from a complete stranger on RU-clip too seriously.
      By the way, feel free to express your opinion on me as rudely as you like. I have better things to worry about than what you think and you should have better things to worry about than what I think.
      You are wrong though.

    My favorite Jag of all time, left it mostly intact. Which is rare. Didn't like they changed the interior color. And what happened to those gorgeous wire wheels? The wire wheels is what makes that car. Sorry, but I'm a purist. I want it to look like the day it rolled the factory.

    Even though it looked rough, that was a decently solid Jag. Mine is much rougher and unfortunately has a small block Chevy lump. This one is a real beauty when she was finished!

    Absolutely stunning car indeed, the shape curves, lines and Chrome are breathtaking...WOW!!!
    If one opens the hood & Bonnet of a modern-day Mercedes and BMW you will be met by cheap nasty plastic.
    Plastic is the cheapest most dreadful material know to man.
    This E-Type is when engineering was an Artform and a passion, ownership was an absolute pleasure and pride.
    One will never get this quality craftsmanship from modern-day plastic throwaway cars.
    This is Art and Quality that will never be seen in modern-day car manufacturing.

    Wire wheels and British racing green, would have been soooo much better. It was a nice job looks cool but come on a classic style is always in fashion.

      Wire wheels and a Blue exterior to match the blue seats they used would have looked much more exciting than that boring gray. Those new Dunlap wheels they used DO NOT enhance that gorgeous car. Even the original white/red or your choice of British Racing Green is far more SHARP than the owner's choice, but hey, its his money to toss.

    Back when British engineering was at its peak, too bad the seventies with trade union strikes put these companies into dire straits. There has been somewhat of a recovery with companies like McLaren but who can afford that, the beauty of Jaguar was that it had Ferrari performance and good looks for about a third of the price.
