This car is everything you want in a 1970 Jaguar XKE Series II roadster a great color combo, a cold A/C interior, and a serious amount invested in keeping the world's prettiest car looking stunning. This car was restored around 1999 was crowned a JNCA (Jaguar Club of North America) champion in the early 2000's, before it received some modern updates mentioned below. The restoration has held up very well, and this car still looks freshly restored even today.
The E-Type (ok, XKE if you stick to the USA designation) is the icon that tops many lists of the most beautiful car ever produced. Jaguar wanted to utilize the strength of the racing-inspired monocoque chassis. Today you can see that on this example, because there has been a sizable investment in restoring it to a top quality condition. So the sheetmetal has precision gaps and the doors can be shut with authority. And the black paint is a more recent application where every inch still has a hard onyx-like shine. But form outshines the function on this car. Even with today's modern metal practices, it is nearly impossible to duplicate the mixture of aggressive deign with gentle curves on this boutique classic. As a desirable Series II car, it comes with all those delicate touches that made it an icon the petite oval opening at the front, uninterrupted side lines, and the thin chrome bumpers that hug the body. Take some time to really look this one over because all the delicate and expensive details are complete, which means it makes a memorable entrance everywhere.
Beneath the black folding roof is a supple tan leather interior. And they were so thoughtful in the restoration that you'll love the details, like how the piping in the seats matches the exterior. And this premium feeling is furthered by door panels, carpeting, center console, and a dash that present just as nicely. This one was built to be the one you can take everywhere in comfort thanks to features like the classic AM/FM radio, power windows, and modern R134a air conditioning. But more than just comfortable, you want this because of the way your heart skips a beat when you grab the classic wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel with leaping cat in the middle. And beyond that is a full set of Smiths gauges to keep you focused on those trips down the back roads.
Tilt the clamshell hood (bonnet) forward, and check out this Jag's beautiful motor. You can really tell the level of restoration just by the shine and detail of this iconic and long power house. For drivers, the Series II cars are really the ones to own. The larger 4.2 liter inline-six provides deep reserves of torque that are very friendly for U.S. roads. This engine was rebuilt during the restoration, with a slightly more aggressive cam added for a little extra punch. Plus, the control of the four-speed manual transmission and the correct dual Stromberg carburetors ensure the power delivery. There's even an upgrade to an aluminum radiator with electric fan, so this one can stay cool in traffic even with the A/C pumping something you can't say about XKEs. The suspension is an unsurpassed combination of handling and ride comfort and the E-Type benefits from the innovative independent rear suspension with inboard disc brakes for reduced unsprung weight. The dual exhaust system sounds spectacular and chrome wire wheels are genuine knock-offs with grippy Yokohama tires.
You're looking at a restored icon that has all the right investments to make it a great driver and an instant head-turner the moment you leave the showroom. That's why you know you need to hurry to grab this turn-key XKE. Call today!!!
