History About Jaguar's XKE Series Models:
The XKE series Jaguar was an instant success from the moment it appeared at the automotive seen in 1961! As each new generation was improved from the last, the XKE Series continued to offer more and more to the buyers after the prestigious luxury sports car from England! This included improved brakes, better suspension, superior interior comfort, more significant cooling, and bigger displacement engines. By 1971, the short wheelbase offering was long gone in favor of a quality ride, and power steering was now a standard feature. The Series III was born with a V12 with quad Zenith-Stromberg carburetion under the bonnet, and only 7,990 convertibles were produced over the entire four-year production!

Details About Our XKE Series III Jaguar For Sale:
We are delighted to offer collectors the chance to purchase this beautiful 1973 Jaguar XKE Series III convertible finished in Sable Brown over a beautifully kept Biscuit Tan Leather interior with matching Tan cloth soft top! Options include a number matching 5.3L V12 engine, producing a powerful 272 horsepower, 4-speed synchromesh manual transmission, chrome 15" wire spoke wheels with Dunlop whitewall tires, Clarion AM/FM Stereo radio, quad outlet chrome exhaust, leather wrapped steering wheel & shift knob, remote outside mirror, and rubber floor mats! Standard options included a responsive 4-wheel independent suspension with matching disc brakes at all four corners, small front & rear bumper guards, and full Smiths dash instrumentation with tachometer!

This wonderfully survived example is showing just 27,354 miles which is believed to be original from new, although the St. Louis Car Museum was not provided enough evidence to support a true mileage claim. It has been repainted one time in the distant past while retaining it all original interior upholstery. Both present wonderfully in person with a genuinely original appeal. The convertible soft top is brand new while retaining the factory boot cover when stowed. Moreover, the body is exceptionally solid with factory gaps and fitment of all panels.

After arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum, an inspection of the exhaust system warranted a complete replacement. We opted for the complete Bell stainless steel system with stainless steel collectors. All exhaust manifold bolts were replaced in the process. This is an exceptional upgrade and should provide years of durable service. Our expert service team also replaced the outer tie-rod boots, anti-sway bar bushings, right front ball joint dust boot, fuel tank sump filter & seal, coolant rail gaskets, coolant hoses, new coolant, engine oil & filter, rear brake hose, brake reservoir cap, bled the brake system, installed a new breather tube, and tuned the carburetors.
It starts, runs, and drives with great bravado with a tremendously pure Jaguar sound from the new exhaust! The brakes and throttle are equally responsive, ready for a more spirited drive or a relaxing cruise on Sunday morning! It is an exceptional road car with ample power on tap!
