(SOLD) It is hard to find rare cars such as these, that have only 25,001 original documented miles. A wonderful running and driving car, this is a solid, accident free Jaguar. This very original, matching numbers 1971 XKE 4.2 Series II roadster would be a wonderful car to start, or add to your collection. In an elegant color combination of British Racing Green with a Biscuit interior, it is fitted with a fresh set of custom made Dunlop tires, purchased from Vintage Tyres in the U.K. It comes with a full spare, and 5 chrome wire wheels as well. This Jaguar has a treasure trove of documentation such as its original Jaguar Passport, the original sales receipt, original owner’s manual, Heritage Certificate, work receipts/records, Jaguar judging sheets, and tools. An original car with excellent chrome, and good body and panel fit. This is from the end of the XKE 6 cylinder era, where shortly after this model, Jaguar made the XKE 12 cylinder, making this a very collectible car to own.
The Series II XKE is very desirable because of its comfortable reclining seats, improved cooling system, and dual fans on the radiator. This is the end of the 6 cylinder XKE era. Leaping cat emblems were only placed on the side of the 1971 XKE bonnet and are a very unique addition and symbol of this series. While the Series II E-type was more radically altered than its interim predecessor, the essential construction remained the same and the body work differed only in detail. Modifications were made to the front of the bonnet, increasing the size considerably, the headlamp scoops were altered so that the inner walls now splayed inwards and the side/flasher were rather larger and positioned below the raised bumper. The vehicle also received heavier front bumper blades, motif bar, front and rear over-riders were changed, new square number plate at the rear, a different grille was used in the rear of the bonnet bulge, and the washer jets were finished in satin chrome to avoid the risk of dangerous reflections. This is your golden opportunity to buy one of the last 6 cylinders made in 1971 before the 12 cylinder replaced it.
