Really flaunting every nip and tuck in the fluid body is a rare Opalescent Maroon, the original color of this British classic. A restoration involved a complete strip and refinishing, plus replacement of all chrome. New Dunlop chrome wire wheels and tires similar to what this car originally used have been installed as well. The result is what you see now, which will surely impress as you cruise through town or show up at any event.
Also original in its presentation, the black interior is complete and in excellent condition. Various instruments had to be rebuilt during the restoration, so everything including the clock works. Even the original Blaupunkt AM/FM radio is whole and works. All the weather seals are newer. Fresh black leather shows essentially zero wear, matching the carpets and black convertible top.
For the 1965 model year, Jaguar made some strategic improvements to the XKE, namely bumping engine displacement to 4.2 liters. The transmission was also improved with a new design which fitted it with a synchro first gear. Other changes, like more comfortable seats and some cosmetic details were also included.
This particular car comes with the extra reassurance of a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, ensuring the engine, cylinder head, and chassis are all numbers-matching. Records and receipts for maintenance and other work performed on this vehicle will be supplied. They include the professional restoration performed about ten years ago.
