This is a wonderful example of a 1962 Jaguar XKE Series 1 OTS
Roadster that benefitted from three long term owners and is in
gorgeous condition today. This Jaguar has been well cared for and
loved its entire life. While never receiving a complete
restoration, this has been restored as needed over the decades.
With its matching numbers 3.8-liter inline engine, 4-speed
transmission and vibrant color combination, this E-Type is perfect
for regional shows and tours. This Jaguar was built by the factory
on July 13, 1962, and dispatched to the New York distributor on the
8th of August 1962. According to her owner, this Jaguar remained
with its first owner for 23 years. She was acquired by her second
owner, Dell Lichtenburg in Boseman, MT, by about 1985. Mr.
Lichtenburg enjoyed her for six years. During that time, he
replaced her black Haartz cloth convertible top. Our client, Marvin
Brown from Billings, MT purchased her from Mr. Lichtenburg in 1992.
Mr. Brown added about 50 miles over the first 10 years of ownership
and then decided to store her on blocks to better preserve its
condition. He was advised that placing her on blocks would be ideal
to preserve the suspension, so he had her carefully professionally
decommissioned for storage. For the next 20 years, this Jaguar
remained on blocks in his air conditioned garage. In 2022, Mr.
Brown had her fully professionally recommissioned and detailed, and
today she runs and drives very well and looks fantastic. She is
accompanied by a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, which
confirms her to be an original Carmen Red and numbers matching
example. The exterior of this Jaguar is stunning. The Carmen Red
livery has excellent shine and luster and is in beautiful condition
today. The Carmen Red paint is its original and correct factory
color. The chrome and stainless-steel trim are also in beautiful
condition. Her black Haartz cloth convertible top is in excellent
condition. The Black canvas convertible top boot accompanies her.
The chrome plated knock-off wire wheels are wrapped in Riken Radial
tires of appropriate size and look. The wheels and tires are in
beautiful condition. Overall, the exterior is in excellent show
condition. The interior is complete in Black Leather and is
complimented by Black wool carpeting. The leather is soft and
supple and the interior shows very well overall. There is only
slight wear showing on the driver's side bolster and piping. The
black dashboard also shows well. The telescopic steering features
its teak steering wheel that is in beautiful condition. Overall,
the interior is very nice and perfect for touring or regional
shows. This Jaguar comes with its original numbers matching 3.8
liter inline 6-cylinder engine with a trio of Weber carburetors.
The 255hp is transmitted through its 4-speed manual transmission
with independent rear suspension, creating top speeds of nearly 150
mph. The engine compartment is detailed and shows fairly well. The
chassis and engine compartment have never been restored per se ,
but have been painted and cleaned over the years. This Jaguar
performs very well and its engine is very quiet and powerful.

Heritage Trust Certificate, jack and spare. We have this XKE priced
