Following the E-Type Series 1 there was a series of cars built in 1967–68, unofficially called "Series 1½." Due to American pressure the new features were not just open headlights, but also different switches, black plastic rocker switches, ribbed cam covers painted black except for the top brushed aluminum ribbing, hood frames on the Roadster that have two bows, and other changes. Series 1½ cars also have twin cooling fans and adjustable seat backs. Series 2 features were gradually introduced into the Series 1, creating the unofficial Series 1½ cars, but always with the Series 1 body style. A United States federal safety law affecting 1968 model year cars sold in the US was the reason for the lack of headlight covers and change in dash switch design in the "Series 1.5" of 1968. An often overlooked change, is the wheel knock-off "nut." US safety law for 1968 models outlawed the winged-spinner knockoff, and any 1968 model year sold in the US, or earlier German delivery cars, should have a hexagonal knockoff nut, to be hammered on and off with the assistance of a special "socket" included with the car from the factory.
The 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 offered here is believed to be number 2 of the one and a half models and is almost all as a series one. The car comes with the Jaguar Heritage certificate that also shows it as a series one. The body and paint have been fully restored and the engine and gearbox have had a full rebuild and has only done about 1000 miles since rebuild. Described by the vendor as a very good car that runs and drives very well, with a rust free body and very smart paintwork. The engine is not the original but is the correct engine type for the year. A new wiring loom has also been fitted along with, wiper motor. Radiator, fan, crosswaite callipers, ventilated brakes, new chrome Jaguar old stock wire wheels and much more but too long to list. This is a genuine UK supplied right hand drive car in very good condition. All the work on the car has been carried out by the vendor and therefore there are no invoices, but a full list of work carried out will be supplied with the car.
