For Sale: 1973 Jaguar XK in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

Nicely survived Jaguar Series III 2+2 Coupe with same former owners for 23 years with only 51,600 miles! Nicely equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning, power steering, and more! Recent comprehensive mechanical servicing and new interior upholstery! Very nice driver!

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, it 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 7,297 2+2 Coupes were produced over the entire four-year production!

We are delighted to offer this very sharp 1973 Jaguar XKE Series III 2+2 finished in Signal Red over new Black Leather interior! Options include number matching 5.3L V12 engine producing a powerful 272 horsepower, automatic transmission, air conditioning (R134a converted), chrome 15" wire spoke wheels with radial redline tires, upgraded AM/FM/CD/XM Alpine radio, quad fan-tip chrome exhaust, leather wrapped steering wheel, telescoping column, remote outside mirror, rear defrost, and tinted window glass! Standard options included a responsive 4-wheel independent suspension with disc brakes at all four corners, power rack and pinion steering, front & rear bumper guards, along with full dash instrumentation with electric tachometer!

This gently used Jaguar 2+2 shows 51,606 miles on the odometer today, with an older repaint to the exterior that continues to show quite well today, with patina along the rear hood and driver door edges that have been touched up. Upon acquisition by the St. Louis Car Museum, it would undergo a full mechanical service to include a comprehensive overhaul of all four Stromberg carburetors including floats, bypass diaphragms, and vacuum lines; new fuel filter & air filters; complete engine cooling hose kit & clamps along with all new coolant & radiator cap; new ball joint boots (4); new steering rack dust boots; new exhaust flange gaskets, extension pipes, front mufflers, mounts & clamps; an alternator charging conversion with new volt gauge; new battery; new NGK Copper sparks plugs, plug wires, distributor cap & rotor with upgraded Crane Cams Fireball XR700 electric ignition; rebuilt tachometer; engine oil and filter change; brand new 205/70R15 red stripe radial tires from Diamond Back; new wiper blades among a few smaller items.

The interior was all original with the front leather seats showing their age, particularly the common issue of the shrinking foam inside the headrests. Our upholstery shop rebuilt both front seats with new foams, leather seat covers from World Upholstery along with both headrests and center armrest. They also contributed replacement of the interior carpeting and complete headliner with new sun visors! New door sill rubbers were installed as well as rear door hinge covers. The results really gave new life to the deserving interior cabin! It remains a remarkable boulevard cruiser with excellent Jaguar style lines and coupe comforts! Please call to schedule a chance to see it person to discuss the chance to add it to your collection. Thanks for looking!
