Selling a 1967 Jaguar XKE
The Jaguars from 1967 to 1968, which bridged the gap between the Series 1 and Series 2 cars, were unofficially known as the “Series 1 ½” models. While these cars were relatively similar to the previous models in appearance, strict federal regulations for safety and emissions required changes to the performance of the Jaguar. Mechanically, twin Zenith-Stromberg carburetors were fitted with a hot intake tube that ran off the exhaust manifold. This change – while reducing the Jaguar XKE’s horsepower – meant emissions standards were met and the car could continue to be sold in the American market. Often called the “federalized” cars, the 1967 Jaguar XKE can be recognized by its 4.2-litre engine fitted with carburetors, and the use of new cam covers with raised fins. There were several changes that took place inside the car as well, most dealing with safety. For example, the toggle switches were replaced with rocker switches and a collapsible steering column was implemented. Sadly to many purists, the 1967 also saw the end of the famous Jaguar starter button, which was replaced by a traditional start key.
