Harry's Thoughts

The coupe derivative of the E-Type accentuates the sleek lines of the iconic Jaguar.

THE ESSENTIALS

ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com.  This is a stunning older concours quality 1968 Jaguar Series II E-Type Coupe that has benefitted from a no expense spared restoration of a solid original motorcar.  With a total investment in excess of $300,000, this Jaguar is spectacular.

The restoration started with a solid original example having lived much of its life in Independence, Oregon.  The Jaguars previous owner was David Brook from Bremerton, WA and was bought by its present owner on November 24, 2013.

The restoration was completed in 2015 by Doctor Jag Technologies in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The purchase and parts alone cost in excess of $73,000, documented with numerous pages of single-spaced lines of accounting detail.  The stack of receipts is literally inches thick.  The labor value was $230,000 for the 2,100 hours the craftsmen and engineers spent rebuilding this incredible roadster.  This is part of a 70-car collection, including 26 Jaguars.

This E-Type has been beautifully finished in Light Blue and has the chrome wire wheels, giving it a spectacular look.  The paint, chrome and all the finish work are all in excellent condition.  This is ready to be competitive at concours events.  We love the sleek silhouette that only the coupe achieves.

The gorgeous dark Blue leather interior and matching blue carpeting is all new and without fault.  New Jaguar branded seatbelts have been installed and everything in the interior is as-new.  The dash, instruments and door panels are also either new or restored.  Everything works as it should.

The heart of this particular E-Type is what lies beneath the bonnet.  The engine has triple two-barrel Webers installed and headers with a big bore exhaust.  Of course, a highly capacity and efficient aluminum radiator is also installed.  This is a numbers matching motorcar that comes with its original data plate, receipts and records of the restoration and the Historical Society certificate.

An independent inspection was conducted and the report is available for your review.  It confirms the pristine condition of this roadster, as you would expect with a fresh restoration.  If you are interested in acquiring the ultimate E-Type that is essentially as-new or better than new, this may be your motorcar.

For more information and details, call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.  This Jaguar is located at the owner’s facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Jaguar XKE

Interesting Fact: This Jaguar model was only called the XKE in the North American market during the time of production. In Britain, where the car was manufactured, it was known as the Jaguar E-Type. Production on the Jaguar XKE occurred between 1961 and 1975 and a convertible, as well as hard top version were both offered. This sporty car boasts a top speed of 150 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 time that is under seven seconds. The body of the Jaguar XKE is based upon the Jaguar D-Type racing car which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for three consecutive years starting in 1955. When the Jaguar XKE was released in 1961, Enzo Ferrari called it “the most beautiful car ever made” and, in 2008, The Daily Telegraph listed the Jaguar XKE in its list of the 100 most beautiful cars of all time. Regardless of age, the Jaguar XKE holds up as one of the most stunning and high-performing vehicles in history!
