1969 Jaguar XKE Roadster
In classic color combination of British Racing Green with Black interior. The car is located in North East USA and onsite inspections are welcomed.
With only 77,000 original miles the car is perfectly tuned, smooth and fast. The car has never been in an accident and comes with full documentation, including the original owner’s pamphlet, and matching numbers. The paint job done in June of 2000, which was done as an off-body paint job, in is in beautiful condition. The entire body was painted including the engine and truck compartment and under carriage. There is no rust evident and the off body paint job did not uncover any. The interior Connolly leather seats are soft and supple and with no cracks.
With a recent new canvas roof boot cover and interior all done with in the last 5 to 8 years, a seasoned observer will have to look very closely for flaws with the the paint, chrome, glass or leather interior which are all in beautiful shape as demonstrated by the accompanying pictures.
The car needs nothing to preform and drive like it should. The car handles excellently on the highway and back country roads. There are no apparent engine leaks. The car is stored in a heated garage year round. I have owned this car for over 20 years and have all of the maintenance records and clear title in hand. This is one of the most beautiful cars ever made and is being offer in as is condition.
The car shifts through all 4 gears without hesitation, the clutch and breaks operate without issue. All the instruments are original and operate with the exception of the clock. All safety lights operate (headlights (low and high beam), break lights, backup lights, signals) as do the dash lights.
The 3 wiper blade metal attachments and blades are new and operate as does the interior heater. Air conditioning was not offered as an option. The radio is original and picks up local AM and FM stations although I have found the radio’s frequency to be limited. Both speakers are fine.
The tube tires have been replaced with air-sealed tires and new wire rims and knock-offs which are all in excellent shape. The spear tire retains the original rim and knock-off which are in fair shape but I have never had to use it. The car comes with the original Car Jack and Knock off tool but I would recommend a modern jack be used and the tires changed and balanced by a professional.
This car is an excellent example of forethought in design and engineering during the early 1960’s. The new owner will find many years of satisfying ownership and driving.
So if you are looking for one of the most beautiful cars ever designed, at least according to Mr. Ferrari who is famously quoted as saying that he thought the Jaguar E-type was the most beautiful car in the world, you should give this car serious consideration. The car is in everybody’s favorite color of British Racing Green, which may be the best color you can paint an XKE, it is in fantastic driving condition and while it is not a trailer queen it is only a few notches down.
