This Jaguar XKE Series III has a silver exterior complemented by a black interior. It is powered by a V12 engine mated to an automatic transmission with increased horsepower, smaller chrome bumperettes, full instrumentation, newly installed air conditioning components as well as a recent service. This E-Type was a one-family owned car since new. It was locally serviced and maintained by Carlsbad British Motorcars of Carlsbad, CA. Classic Showcase recently acquired the E-Type from the family and has performed numerous services and aesthetic improvements. The upholstery department restored the interior of the XKE, the seats received new foam and new diaphragms, and the seat covers were then reinstalled; the center console was also restored.

The window mechanisms were lubricated and serviced, and the E-Types steering wheel was cleaned and refurbished. Some scratches and small scrapes were spot-painted followed by a wet-sanding and buffing to the car. The bonnet required cleaning, stripping, caulking, and then prime, paint and a clear coat. A servicing of the XKEs engine was performed, sorting all the electrical wiring and installing new rubber on the splash panels. There was a full service to the cars air conditioning system that included installing a new compressor, switch, evaporator, seals, evacuated, flushed the system, installed new 134-A freon, restoring cooling fans, the cowl assembly, changed fluids, filters, hoses, clamps and air filters, as well as performing a comprehensive cleanup and repaint of components.
