Car Catcher: Is a Convertible the E-Type at Its Best?

Sponsored article presented by Fantasy Junction.

 

Upon its release, the E-type was not just pleasing to the eye. It also featured a unibody construction, fully independent suspension, and disc brakes at all four corners—unusual compared to many of its contemporaries.

It's no wonder, then, that the E-type is often featured near the top of various "best sports cars" lists.

You too can enjoy everything the iconic two-seater has to offer with this 1965 Series 1 Jaguar E-type Roadster from Fantasy Junction for $129,500.

Finished in Carmen Red, this Jaguar is described as numbers-matching and reportedly received a comprehensive restoration "some years ago."

Under the hood sits Jaguar's "XK" 4.2-liter straight-six, which delivers a reported 265 horsepower and 283 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.

The listing notes that actual mileage is unknown, but the current odometer reads 5528 miles.

A leakdown test reveled low compression in cylinder one, and a borescope showed ring scoring in cylinders three and four.

Insuring your classic car investment may cost less than you think. Learn more.
