This 1965 Jaguar XKE OTS (open two-seater) is Series 1 model, incorporating dozens of performance and reliability improvements compared to the earlier cars, and unquestionably more handsome than the later models, making it one of the most desirable E-Types of all. If you’re looking for a Jag to drive and enjoy, this is your E-ticket ride. Note the small grille opening, covered headlights, slender bumpers, and tail lights still perched above the rear bumpers, all indicative of the Series 1 cars and making it one of the prettiest of all. The biscuit leather buckets invite you to come in and stay a while, and with the 1965 upgrades, they became more comfortable for longer trips. The 4-speed manual gearbox is almost as silky as the bodywork. Toggle switches control all the secondary functions, and big, round Smiths gauges are a right British way to monitor the engine. That Moto-Lita steering wheel is real wood, and sumptuous carpets give it a plush, luxurious feeling inside. This car also includes a rare Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. There’s not a lot of trunk space, but enough for a weekend getaway, and the black convertible top fits snugly when you need it in an emergency. It comes with an original hardtop, unrestored but nice.
