35 miles since restoration.
This E-Types body lines are accentuated by the exceptional bright work, and complemented by a black convertible top and interior. The well preserved interior has a touch of patina, showing the spirited past of this classic. The black leather seats wrap you in comfort when touring, and provide a little extra safety with headrests and shoulder belts as mandated for ’70. This series II features the new style rocker switches, a British Leyland Radio, and the famous Jaguar wood steering wheel.
This XKE’s 4.2 Liter straight six sports three Weber carburetors & a Stainless header pipes which adds to the pleasure of driving this E-Type. The engine was removed for the restoration and serviced, at which time TLD restored and refreshed any and all components possible under the bonnet. The syncro-mesh 4-speed gear box makes for crisp shifts as the fully independent suspension and the 4 wheel disc brakes help control this stunning roadster. An updated cooling system works via an enlarged "mouth" and twin electric fans, helping this Jag stay cool.
