Selling a 1967 Jaguar XKE Fixed Head Coupe
The late 1960’s and early 1970’s brought about a wealth of changes to the automotive industry pertaining to safety and emissions regulations that were being passed in the United States at the time. Automakers across the globe where having to make changes to their cars – big and small – to make sure they were in compliance with these new regulations. The Jaguar XKE was no exception. During this particular model-year, the 1967 Jaguar XKE Fixed Head Coupe and Open Two Seater would receive changes thanks to these new requirements. Jaguar would introduce twin Zenith carburetors fitted with a hot intake tube connected to the exhaust manifold. While this would reduce the horsepower slightly, the change was necessary to continue selling the XKE in the American market – one of the biggest purchasers of the XKE. Additional changes like new switches inside the cabin, the elimination of the headlight’s glass cover, and a new collapsible steering column were also changes related directly to regulations. In fact, the Jaguar XKE models from this era are sometimes called the “federalized” cars.
