Do we ever grow weary of gazing upon a beautiful XKE ? I think
not.I have traded these beautiful Cats for over four decades and I
still had to force myself to put down the camera! Every angle,high
and low, front and rear are beautiful lines that excite the
soul.This stunning example is a one owner, four speed ,a/c,wire
wheel car that is as straight as these cars come.The one owner was
not a restorer,or a speculator,or a concours participant,he was a
man that fell in love with the XKE in 1974,bought the car and did a
nice job preserving it.Consequently if you are looking for
perfection or a car void of that nasty old yellow glue the survivor
cars still have slopped all over them,this car is not for you.If
you are looking for a well preserved car with a few minor cosmetic
flaws,i.e. saggy sunvisors,choke tags,and a/c slats
missing,detailed engine compartment,then you should review these
pictures and contact me.The one and only owner states he never
drove the car in rain or snow and the car reflects that care.I just
returned from a 100 mile maiden voyage under my tutelage to a fall
British car concours,the day was hot,the car ran cool with strong
oil pressure.Is the car perfect,no,is it very high in
integrity,absolutely YES! The body panels are not only straight and
void of dings and dents but they also have perfect factory body
panel gap and fit.The car shows no signs of accident history or
rust history.Review the 59 pictures posted,if you are looking for a
lovely example that is not priced in the six figure price
tag,contact me at 615-971-4409.Independent inspections are welcomed
and encouraged.The car is located in the Nashville TN. metro
area.There will be an additional $299 assessed to final agreed upon
sale price for dealer doc fees.This and other European collectibles

It seems that the world must be filled with abandoned Jaguars waiting to be discovered in barns and garages and then pulled out and sold at auction.
Introduced in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show as the successor to the XK series, the Jaguar E-type, also known as the XK-E, was sleek and resembled the famous D-type race car.
The Jaguar E-Type has been universally hailed since new as one of the most beautiful cars ever constructed.
A musty “barn-find” 1963 Jaguar E-type coupe was the top seller at Classic Car Auctions’ sale last weekend at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre in the U.K.
After winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957 with its D-type, Jaguar was concerned that its newest technology had not passed down to its road cars.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, ClassicCars.com is feeling the love and asked readers to vote for the most romantic car.
All eyes in the collector-car world are focused on the auction today in Paris of one of the most spectacular “barn finds” in history.
The offerings range from a 1953 250 MM sports-racer to the latest in high-tech supercars
