1973 Jaguar XKE Series III (V-12) Roadster
1973 Jaguar XKE Roadster
This beautiful original California XKE Roadster has a smooth and powerful V12 engine. The combination of the British Racing Green exterior with tan leather interior, 4 speed manual transmission and air conditioning make this car the most desirable of all Series III’s. It has both a new soft top and hard top with hard top stand and cover and a CD stereo system. It is a multiple show winner including the Southern California regional Jaguar owner’s club 1st place trophy. This car is very reliable and has been on several 1,000 mile vintage motor tours in California always successfully finishing.
Since 1973’s no longer require California smog checks, the catalytic converter system and smog pumps have been removed for extra smoothness and power and an electronic ignition system has been added. It also has been modified with high speed electric fans and extra core radiator to keep it running cool even in the hottest Southern California summers. None of these changes deduct from its concours show quality. The brakes, tires and battery were replaced within the last 3 years or 6,000 miles and it comes with a tool kit , manuals and service history.
