For Sale: 1973 Jaguar XKE in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

Between 1961 and 1974 Jaguar designed and built the E-Type or XK-E for North
America, and quite literally might be one of the most gorgeous cars of all time,
even Enzo Ferrari thought so. If that is not saying something, I am not sure
about your stance. The E-Type was based on Jaguars D-Type racing car which
had won Le Mans three years in a row beginning in 1955. In addition to it being
beautiful, it ranked in the top tier of cars by most publications.

This particular excellent "driver quality" example that we are excited to
represent comes out of long-term ownership and has remained largely original
with what appears to be one re-paint years ago. The all-original interior and
convertible soft top show commensurate wear given this Jaguar celebrated its
50 th this year. This V-12, manual transmission E-Type convertible was purchased
many years ago, driven, enjoyed and maintained when something needed
attention. No, unfortunately we do not have a British Heritage Cert, but from
what I can tell the red is correct, the drivetrain appears to be correct and most
of all, this car starts very nicely, idles quietly, the choke works, lights and
gauges work as well. Heck, it even has an 8-track player with a Sonny and Cher
8-track still in it. I have personally driven this car and it is truly delightful,
smooth under both acceleration and braking, the synchro's in the transmission
seem good and there appears to be no rattling or clunking coming from
anywhere. The balanced, low-rumble of the V-12 under acceleration is truly
something to be enjoyed and will likely be regulated out of the new car market
in the years to come. The underside is presentable for that of a driver, the pans
are rust free as there is no major corrosion, just surface rust on some areas. In
my opinion, this car would be great to do a cosmetic restoration or better
yet....leave it alone and just continue to enjoy the timeless style and
sophistication of V-12 Jaguar life.
