(SOLD) This is a limited ownership car that was purchased from a long term Jaguar Club member in Southern California, and has recently undergone a restoration. The car was dissembled, body work was performed as needed, and then a reassemble was performed. It has received a complete and total repaint including wet sand and buff, it had a professional upholstery kit installed which was done with all the correct materials including the headliner, seats, panels and carpet etc…; a new stainless steel exhaust system was installed, a new correct Triplex tinted windshield was installed, along with a new battery and tires. The mechanicals were attended to by the engine being rebuilt, going thru all the systems, replacing all worn or unrestorable parts, the britework was rechromed or replaced as needed, and all new rubber and seals were installed. It had always been garage kept and well cared for. There are only a few test miles on the car after completion. This car features factory A/C, 4 speed, power steering, wire wheels, and a Sony AM/FM CD player. A Heritage Certificate verifying its authenticity will accompany the car. This car would be an excellent driving and touring XKE and a great addition to any Jaguar Lovers collection.
Launched in 1961 at the international motor show in Geneva, the E-type, or XKE, echoed the sensation of the XK-120, perhaps even more. An astonishing performance package, with amazing speed and handling, the XKE’s brand new 4-wheel independent suspension system was so well conceived, it was used by Jaguar for over thirty years. In 1971, a new 5.3 liter 12-cylinder Jaguar V-12 engine was introduced, with upgraded brakes and standard power steering and was available only as a convertible and a 2+2 coupe. This is the second to last year that Jaguar produced the E-type. The convertible used the longer-wheelbase 2+2 floor plan. It is easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12.
