Once called "the most beautiful car ever made" by Enzo Ferrari,
Jaguar introduced the XKE Series 1 in 1961 in both hardtop and
roadster forms. Initially, all cars came with the 3.8-liter
inline-6 engine previously used in the XK150s. By mid-1964, the
engine size increased to 4.2 liters, which remained the standard
engine all the way through the end of the Series II in 1970. Due to
the change in engine offering halfway through the production of the
Series 1, enthusiasts often refer to the 4.2 cars as "Series 1.5"
or "Series 1-1/2." This Jaguar is a true Series 1 equipped with a
3.8-liter engine and a 4-speed manual transmission. It's finished
in Carmen Red with a tan leather interior and a matching tan
soft-top. The interior features an original-spec wood steering
wheel and shift knob, as well as a working original-style radio.
It's equipped with original-style multi-spoke knock-off wheels with
original-style Michelin XVS tires. Refinish completed in August
2017. Comes with Heritage Certificate from Jaguar.
