Description: The introduction of an all-new 4.2-litre engine mated to a new Jaguar all-synchromesh 4-speed gearbox brought with it many refinements over the original E-Type 3.8-litre model.

The introduction of an all-new 4.2-litre engine mated to a new Jaguar all-synchromesh 4-speed gearbox brought with it many refinements over the original 3.8-litre model.

Changes were made to the braking system that now used a conventional brake servo. The electrical system was converted to negative earth, an alternator replaced the dynamo, and a pre-engaged starter motor was a further improvement.

Inside, the most obvious change was the newly-designed seats replacing the ‘bucket style’ used in the 3.8-litre models. Externally the only change was the addition of an ‘E-Type’ and ‘4.2’ badge to the boot lid – all 3.8 models simply carried a Jaguar badge. Due to popular demand, in September 1965 Jaguar lengthened the wheelbase and doors by 23cm (9in) and raised the roof to make room for the addition of two small rear seats. This is known as the 2 + 2 model.

There were detailed changes throughout the model life, the most noticeable arriving in late l967 when the glass headlight covers were deleted at Roadster Chassis No. 864 for RHD models and Chassis No.5889 for the LHD models. Although there was never a change in model type designation, it has been retrospectively christened the ‘Series 11/2’.

Most RHD examples kept the Series 1 interior but as parts came on-stream for the soon-to-be introduced Series 2 model, items such as the altered dash and rocker switches and redesigned and recessed door handles began to be introduced. By then US-bound examples were also fitted with twin Stromberg carburettors which reduced power considerably. Most US examples were fitted with a 3.54 final drive ratio throughout the 4.2 production run, compared with the 3.07 ratio for European and home market cars. As a result, these examples can feel quite busy although top gear acceleration is naturally improved.
