When the cars were new, XKE roadsters far outsold the coupes, but
today, because there's fewer of them, coupes are in high demand
(but not the 2+2s). This car's Heritage Certificate confirms it was
built in Jaguar's Carmen Red/with unusual matching Red interior and
that it still has its original engine (which was rebuilt 2K miles
ago). The car has lived a quiet, accident and rust-free life here
in Colorado and is very much a survivor. We believe the 68K is
actual mileage and it's had only three owners. We sold the car to
the present owner ten years ago and have helped care for it
Our shop did a complete interior restoration a few years ago,
replacing all the leather, carpets, headliner and door cards to a
very high level and it still presents as new.The paint is largely
original, but has some fade, scratches & minor dings, but still
polished up pretty well. Although the car could certainly be
enjoyed as-is for a while longer, we assume the next owner will be
thinking of not only new paint, but likely a color change as well.
The red interior will lend itself dramatically to a new exterior in
dark blue, metallic gray, black or even white for great contrast
Of course, our shop would be a great choice for a paint job once
you're ready to undertake that project. The original Dunlop chrome
wire wheels are in great condition, but the tires are aged (new
ones are included), plus we will be doing a general tune-up and
servicing. We did the rear suspension & brakes a few years ago,
including calipers & rotors. The engine runs well with great oil
pressure and the transmission-being the later style with synchro
1st gear-shifts nicely and had a new clutch 2K miles ago. A late
Series I covered-headlight XKE coupe is a rare find these days and
with this one you can make it exactly like the one you visualize in
your head late at night.
(The car will be undergoing the included work over the next few
weeks so it's not ready to go, but we wanted to get it listed
