This 1969 Jaguar XKE is a Series II coupe that was reportedly kept within the same family from new until 2005 and was acquired by the seller 4 years ago. The car is finished in its original Willow Green over tan leather, and power comes from a 4.2L inline-six paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes chrome wire wheels, a period trio-band radio, and a modern aluminum radiator added prior to current ownership. This XKE has a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.
Willow Green is the original color according to the Heritage Certificate below. The seller describes several areas repaired with subpar paint blends and notes there is other cosmetic blemishes. Brightwork includes dual-exit exhausts and chrome 15″ knock-off wire wheels, which are currently mounted with a matching set of 205/70 series Pirelli P400 tires. A walk-around video can be viewed above.
The cabin is trimmed in beige leather and retains a wood-rimmed steering wheel as well as a period tri-band radio. The dash-mounted clock is currently inoperable, and the brake warning light stays illuminated according to the seller. Approximately 35k miles are indicated on the 5-digit odometer.
The 4.2L twin-cam inline-six features dual Stromberg carburetors and ribbed cam covers. An aftermarket aluminum radiator has been fitted in place of the stock item. Shifting is through a 4-speed manual gearbox.
The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate states that the car was completed on April 3, 1969 in Willow Green with Beige upholstery and dispatched to New York on May 4, 1969. A driving video can be viewed below:
