The last model-year to be included in the original Series I of production, the 1967 Jaguar XKE Convertible (and its sister models the Fixed Head Coupe and 2+2) would be the last to feature closed headlights. These headlights, which were covered by a glass lens like the Le Mans racing Jaguars of the era, had become the hallmark of the early models. Another popular indicator that a car was Series I was the positioning of the turn signals above the bumpers. Under the hood, the 1967 Jaguar XKE offered a 4.8L engine with a four-speed all synchromesh transmission. The 1967 XKE 2+2, on the other hand, often came with a three-speed automatic transmission. Inside the Series I Jaguar XKE, you’ll find toggle switches rather than the later rocker switches and on the later 4.2L cars, a center panel that was black rather than aluminum. When shopping for a 1967 Jaguar XKE Convertible, these are some of the features that can help you in your search for an original and authentic XKE.
Topping the list of numerous most beautiful cars lists, the Jaguar XKE is among the most popular classic cars in the market today. Whether you’re looking for a 1967 Jaguar XKE Convertible as your next restoration project, as your occasional driver, or for your private showroom, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be delighted to help you find the model you desire. From rolling chassis to fair condition classics that would be ideal as part donors, to brilliantly-restored examples of the XKE’s design and grace, they stand ready to assist you in finding the model that will suit your needs. Backed by years of experience in the classic car market, they always recommend having a third party inspection to check for originality, authenticity, overall condition and rust. Rust plays a major role in these classic Jaguars and, because of the car’s unitized construction, it is vitally important to understand the extent of any damage. Each panel on the Jaguar serves as both structural support and part of the design and appearance. A rusted out panel can be expensive to replace and repair. These are just a few tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club team recommends for the Jaguar XKE.
