Vehicle Description

Gorgeous Series III XKE with automatic transmission and air conditioning! Only 55,800 miles on the odometer and a perfect color combination!  Great driver with all the right options and all numbers matching drive train! The XKE series Jaguar was an instant success from the moment it appeared at the automotive seen in 1961! As each new generation was improved from the last, it continued to offer more and more to the buyers after the prestigious luxury sports car from England! This included improved brakes, better suspension, superior interior comfort, more significant cooling, and bigger displacement engines!  By 1971, the short wheel base offering was long gone in favor of a quality ride, and power steering was now a standard feature.  The Series III was born with a V12 with quad Zenith-Stromberg carburetion under the bonnet, and only 7,990 convertible were produced over the entire four year production! We are delighted to offer this beautiful 1972 Jaguar XKE Series III convertible finished in Pale Primrose Yellow over beautifully kept Black Leather interior and Black cloth soft top! Options include number matching 5.3L V12 engine producing a powerful 272 horsepower, automatic transmission, functional air conditioning already converted to R134a that blows cold, 72-spoke chrome 15” wire spoke wheels with Coker Classic redline tires, British Leyland AM/FM radio, quad tip chrome exhaust, leather wrapped steering wheel, remote outside mirror, and more!  Standard options included a responsive 4-wheel independent suspension with matching disc brakes at all four corners, front &rear bumper guards, and full Smiths dash instrumentation with electric clock! This wonderfully example is showing just 55,860 miles which is believed to be original from new, although the St. Louis Car Museum was not provided enough evidence to support a true mileage claim. It starts, runs, and drives with great bravado and a pure Jaguar sound from the exhaust!  The brakes and throttle are equally responsive for spirited drives or relaxing cruises on Sunday mornings!  We quickly noted a fully rebuilt front suspension utilizing better polyurethane style bushing for the control arms & sway bar, new upper & lower ball joints, fresh shocks all around, and braided stainless steel brake lines.  It will come complete with Jaguar Heritage Certificate, owner’s manual, two sets of keys, and a parts manual on disc.  Please feel free to call with questions or to schedule an opportunity to see this vehicle in person.
