    Sellers description:
    In 1968, Jaguar introduced the Series II E-Types, building on the growing legend that began with the Series I cars in 1961. It was the first year for uncovered headlamps, dual Stromberg carburetors (to meet US emissions regulations), and an alternator instead of a generator. A larger grille opening, a cross flow radiator and twin electric fans helped quell previous overheating problems, and higher rear-end gear ratios that improved off the line performance. The svelte cat pictured here is shown in Light Blue on beige, and is a premium example of the breed. It is believed to have original miles, and has excellent documentation to support its pedigree. This unrestored beauty is almost completely original, with its (original color) paintwork, completed in 1992, still showing impeccably today. The interior is original (sans a new carpet set) with some expected aging (no rips or tears), and looks stunning to this day. If a collectible auto is in your future, do not just by a car, but make a solid investment in a timeless Jaguar E-Type.

    *Beautifully restored example of the classic Jaguar E-Type
    *Lovely Cotswold Blue over Biscuit livery
    *Equipped with air conditioning and period radio
    *Accompanied by history file, tools and owner's manual

    This late-production Series 1 - colloquially known as a Series 1½ - Jaguar E-Type Roadster was built during the winter of 1967/68 and left the Browns Lane Jaguar factory in Coventry not long after. While the car's early history remains unknown, it is believed to have been delivered new to Jaguar's biggest market for these exceptional sports cars; North America. As a transitional car built in between the Series 1 and 2 production, it features the more delicate Series 1 type tail lights but has the upgraded rocker switches mounted in the dash and the open headlights fitted out front. This left-hand drive Roadster has received a comprehensive restoration which appears to have covered both the mechanical and cosmetic parts of the car and is finished in the very appropriate Cotswold Blue exterior color over a Biscuit leather interior. A black soft top is fitted, and chrome and brightwork shines beautifully. Chrome wire wheels are mounted in each corner and shod on appropriate radial tires. The Series 1½ retains the good looks and style of the Series 1 E-Type, with the upgraded 4.2-liter powerplant and improved gearbox present. This elegant E-Type Roadster is accompanied by a comprehensive history file, owner's manual, tools and convertible top boot, and is optioned with the rare air conditioning system, a period radio, and back up light. A great car for tours and rallies, where an ear-to-ear grin is virtually guaranteed once out on the open road with the top down.

    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
