The Coupe was then shipped from London to the States, where it’s first owner enjoyed the car through the early 70s before it’s 2nd owner in the San Diego region of Southern California took ownership of the XKE in 1974. Its most recent owner has taken great care of the XKE over the years, and the car includes a collection of Oregon and California DMV records, several maintenance records, as well as documentation from the Coupe’s original order and delivery in 1970!
