Offered here is a 1965 Jaguar XKE E-Type Series I Open-Two-Seater (OTS). This is a numbers matching example, as verified by the Jaguar Heritage Trust COA, and within the first few hundred 4.2 E-Types built (Serial Number 10199). Signal Red with black interior and black Stayfast top and boot cover. When we acquired this car, it was in the midst of a full restoration and the owner who loved the car unfortunately was not in a position to finish it due to his failing health. Upon accepting delivery of the car to our facility, we put it through our exhaustive Cooper Classics Certification program and just recently we completed the full restoration. The result is a correct car that is ready to drive and be enjoyed. Serial Number 10199 starts instantly and runs just the way Jaguar intended. It shifts through all gears with ease with a solid suspension. Power is vast and smooth throughout the power band, with an impressive exhaust note coming from the correct porcelain headers, running its way through a stainless steel exhaust system. The carburetors are properly tuned and balanced, and the choke functions as it should. The car resided originally in Wisconsin at one point, eventually making its way to Illinois and from there, it came to New York, where we purchased it. As far as we know, this is the first time that this car has been offered for sale.
