1962 Jaguar XKE Series I Fixed Head Coupe
Original California Black Plate
Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate
Concours Nut And Bolt Restoration
Flash Drive with photos of the comprehensive restoration
This very special matching numbers 1962 Jaguar XKE Series I has been completely restored with no expense spared to concours condition. The meticulous nut and bolt restoration started with a 55,000 mile Southern California car. Detailed photo album documenting the entire restoration is included along with the original maintenance booklet. This car has spent its entire life in Southern California and was originally delivered to Beverly Hills. Essentially a one owner car with documents dating back to 1978. It was professionally repainted to the original Opalescent Dark Blue and currently has a light gray interior. The car drives and performs better than new since it has a four speed synchromesh transmission from a 4.2 XKE. The original transmission comes with the car. A brilliant new stainless exhaust system matches the pristine engine bay confirming the incredible attention to detail throughout. The car also comes with the original jack, tools, and owners manual.

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.
