1966 Jaguar E-Type
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
The E-type Jaguar is the most significant British sports car of the post-war years. Derived from the Le Mans winning D-type, it was also the fastest road-going Jaguar of its day and the firms most successful two-seater. Not only was the car competitively priced but, above all, the E-type could only be a Jaguar, such was the sheer beauty and assurance of its unique lines. The E-type was a head turner when it was new, and it still is today. Announced at the 1961 Geneva Show, the E-type brought together the best elements from its ancestors, cloaked in the legendary coachwork designed by Malcon Sayer and, of course, inspired by Sir William Lyons. The shape, expressing both feline and masculine character, was not only style but calculated mathematically by Sayer for aerodynamic efficiency.
Initially equipped with a 3.8L engine, after three years of production, Jaguar was ready to upgrade and improve the E-type. 1965 brought no new model per se; there were virtually no major styling changes, and the same coupe and roadster comprise the line-up. The major changes were mechanical, centering primarily around a larger version of the now-venerable XK powerplant with a 4.2L engine, a new transmission, and some upgrading in the electrical system. The new engine, dubbed the 4.2, was actually 4235 cc, or 258 ci.
