27k: ReasonablE-Priced: 1968 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Convertible Series 1.5 Project

Our Sunday pick-me up celebration continues with a car that Jeremy Clarkson once famously called the “car of the century.”  “The beguiling, bewitching, beautiful E-Type Jag” isn’t often seen on the pages of DT because they are rare (supply) and sought after (demand) classics and typically live in the garages of the well-to-do.  That is not the case with this convertible that is currently bidding for around the MSRP of a well optioned Honda Accord.  Find this 1968 Jaguar E-Type for sale Watkinsville, GA and currently bidding on ebay for $27,000 with 3 hours to go.

This 1968 series 1.5 E-type is powered by a 4.2 liter inline-6 that was fed by two Zenith-Stromberg carburettors and rated at 265 horsepower.  It should be considerably more fun to drive around than that 2014 V6 Accord you were looking at…well..once you finish the restoration started 24 years ago, but these are details that shouldn’t scare away any well equipped Turismo-head.

Jack stands not included.
