1966 Jaguar XKE 4.2 Series I Coupe: A Matching Numbers Original Black Plate California Car This is an incredibly original matching numbers black plate California car. White with black interior. It's an extremely straight, solid, and undisturbed example, exuding originality. The car was never fully repainted. The undercarriage is rust free and there is no evidence of collision damage or repairs. The interior is also original. While the new owner will likely replace the upholstery on the seats, top of console, and headliner, cars boasting this level of originality are few and far between. From a driving perspective, the car has a very nice feel. It sits on chrome wire wheels with new tires, and has recently been fitted with a new exhaust. An excellent buy. Price: $87,500
It seems that the world must be filled with abandoned Jaguars waiting to be discovered in barns and garages and then pulled out and sold at auction.
Introduced in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show as the successor to the XK series, the Jaguar E-type, also known as the XK-E, was sleek and resembled the famous D-type race car.
The Jaguar E-Type has been universally hailed since new as one of the most beautiful cars ever constructed.
A musty “barn-find” 1963 Jaguar E-type coupe was the top seller at Classic Car Auctions’ sale last weekend at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre in the U.K.
After winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957 with its D-type, Jaguar was concerned that its newest technology had not passed down to its road cars.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, ClassicCars.com is feeling the love and asked readers to vote for the most romantic car.
