Jaguar E type series 1 covered headlamp

This is the last of my four part series on this magnificent motorcar. The Jaguar E-type Series 1 has glass-covered headlamps which form a perfect aerodynamic shape. And they look spectacular. Unfortunately, they failed to meet the 1968 DOT headlamp requirements, and were replaced with uncovered sealed beam units. The new headlamps, while brighter, lack the timeless beauty of these on the Series 1.

Best viewed large. Tomorrow, we will look at a Series 2 E-type to see the dramatic difference the DOT -approved headlamps made to the appearance of this stunning motorcar.
Fabulous capture.
