(SOLD) This numbers-matching 1973 Jaguar XKE Roadster Series 3 V12 is a highly original car that is a great candidate for a comprehensive restoration. Interior, paint, and miles are original. The car features 4 speed, wire wheels, A/C, and 2 tops.
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.
