Tell me please which one of the following sentences is correct. If both are correct, then what is the difference.

Kate asked me if I could lend her one of my cars, and I said, that she could take each.

Kate asked me if I could lend her one of my cars, and I said, that she could take either.

By the way, should be each/either or each one/either one?

Kate asked me if I could lend her one of my cars, and I said, that she could take each.

Each would only work if Kate took them in sequence. Kate is asking to borrow one of the cars, so it wouldn't really work in this situation (there are others where it might though)

Kate asked me if I could lend her one of my cars, and I said, that she could take either.

This only works if there are two cars. For three or more consider:

Kate asked me if I could lend her one of my cars, and I said, that she could take any [of them] [she liked].

(Props to Weathervane for any)
