It's Alive Automotive is proud to offer this outstanding example of
the most affordable version of the classic Jaguar E-Type or XKE as
they're known in the U.S. This 1969 E-type 2+2 is a rarity on
multiple counts. For one it has the most desirable combination of
2+2 equipment having both the four speed manual transmission and
air conditioning. Even more of a rarity and setting it apart from
most other examples is its highly original state. The interior is
incredible, showing only the patina of years of careful use and
loving care. Whether headliner, dash, side panels, seats, or
carpets, the condition is a sterling testament to what an
unrestored survivor car should be. The body is free of rust and has
always been that way. This is not a car that has been taken apart,
patched, and put back together. The paint is very nice with only
the smallest of minor faults. The car is a pleasure to drive. It
has the tight, taught feel of a well maintained car. The engine
runs perfectly with great oil pressure, great power, and no
discernible faults. It shifts smoothly with excellent smooth clutch
action. Even the air conditioning works! Our car's chrome wire
wheels are in stellar condition and shod with Michelin red line
tires. Michelin has not made red line X tires for many years and
these show little wear. On the plus side, that confirms how
sparingly the car has been used. However, due to their age, the
next caretaker may want to consider new tires before operating the
car at speeds its capable of. Lastly, the odometer indicates just
under 25.000 miles. While many aspects of this car's condition
support such low mileage, we are not suggesting that is the case.
Our staff is currently tracing the car's history for more
information and will update our site based on our findings.
Regardless of the car's actual mileage, it is truly a fine example
and we think an excellent opportunity to acquire a beautiful Jaguar
at a most reasonable cost. For more information or to arrange
inspection and a test drive, please call or text Mike at
