For Sale: 1968 Jaguar XKE in Ridgeland, Mississippi

Vehicle Description

This 1968 Jaguar XKE is a Series 1.5 2+2 coupe that was reportedly acquired by the current owner in 2019 from a family member following approximately 15 years of storage. Subsequent recommissioning is said to have included servicing the brakes and carburetors, refreshing the interior, and replacing the windshield, blower motor, water pump, fuel sending unit, and front shocks. The car has been repainted red over cream vinyl upholstery and is powered by a 4.2-liter inline-six equipped with dual carburetors and paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes a wood-rimmed Nardi steering wheel, 15″ wire knock-off wheels, a heater, and an aftermarket stereo. This XKE 2+2 is offered by the seller on behalf of the current owner with service records and a clean Mississippi title. Extensive service records. Notable flaws only include light pitting on the bight work and nonfunctioning windshield wipers. An excellent cruiser with room for friends. What an iconic classic!!!
