Rides From the Readers: 1967 Jaguar E-Type

Today we have the privilege of ogling a ’67 E-Type, William Lyons’ masterpiece and, quite possibly, the most recognizable and celebrated Jaguar design ever. These gorgeous cars were equally at home on the street or the track, and though later cars would get a righteous V-12, the original inline-six engine (either a 3.8- or 4.2-liter unit) still made the lightweight cars forces to be reckoned with.
This beautiful green Series I, 4.2-liter Jaguar E-Type has belonged to its current owner, Tom Taylor of West Linn, Oregon, since his college years. Between 1985 and 1988 the car got a restoration and, judging by the best-of-show award at a local concours in 2019, it’s still looking sharp. This drop-top Brit isn’t simply eye candy, either. Taylor shared with us his dream summer road trip: wandering the nearby winding mountain roads laced with wineries and beautiful estates. Sounds like a pretty good gig to us.
