Specific description This is a only 2 owners car. It is has been with the current owner since 1970 as shows the title. It is a matching numbers car. The car comes with all maintenance records since 1970. The car has always been garaged and has never been involved in any accident. We very recently restored completely this great 1.5 E-type. It is now in perfect condition. The car has also been restored mechanically and drives great. Restoration includes new wheels, tires and stainless steel exhaust. All gauges and lights are in working order. Interior and carpets are very nice. Convertible top is like new and it has a booth cover.

Model description Following the Series 1 there was a transitional series of cars built in 1967–1968, unofficially called "Series 1½", which are externally similar to Series 1 cars. Due to American pressure the new features were open headlights, different switches, and some de-tuning (using two Zenith-Stromberg carburetters instead of the original three SUs) for US models. Some Series 1½ cars also have twin cooling fans and adjustable seat backs. Series 2 features were gradually introduced into the Series 1, creating the unofficial Series 1½ cars, but always with the Series 1 body style. A United States federal safety law affecting 1968 model year cars sold in the U.S. was the reason for the lack of headlight covers and change in switch design in the "Series 1.5" of 1968. An often overlooked change, one that is often "modified back" to the older style, is the wheel knock-off "nut." U.S. safety law for 1968 models also forbid the winged-spinner knockoff, and any 1968 model year sold in the U.S. should have a hexagonal knockoff nut, to be hammered on and off with the assistance of a special "socket" included with the car from the factory. This hexagonal nut carried on into the later Series 2 and 3.
