Super Original Jaguar XKE

Last fall, a customer asked me to check out a cool 1966 Jaguar XKE Roadster on Ebay. I contacted the seller who told me that his father purchased the car when new and it has never been out of the family. We bought the car, shipped it to the shop and did a bunch of work to make it a perfect driving yet very original example. The interior is incredibly well preserved but the carpets were a few random threads so we replaced the main carpets and left the rest of the original “Hardura” and that velvety stuff in the back area. We have spent a ton of time behind the wheel of this XKE and it is one of the best we have had. It has a supple original feel while feeling super crisp and responsive. Everything works perfectly on this car except the original hazy window in the convertible top that you can’t see through. This is a very special matching numbers example with a perfect original tool roll and lots of little details that would make a Jaguar expert very happy. Even though the owner loves this car, he has some college expenses coming up and is ready to sell the car.

I have tons of photos of this car including the tool kit and other details so let me know if you would like more information or specific shots. The tool roll is like a little treasure that you have to carefully unwrap to see the delicate Dunlop tin brake bleeder kit and all of the clunky tools. So cool.
