The original jaguar XKE suffered from many early problems including brake fade, overheating, restrictive foot room, and below par seating comfort.



The later 4.2 engine series I and II cars eliminated these complaints with larger brakes, improved cooling, and a spacious interior. The second series also addressed U.S. safety requirements of the time with larger tail lamps and open style headlamps, while emissions were reduced which improved drivability. The series II cars retained the same stunning appearances as the first XKE’s that hit the market in 1961 at the Paris Motor Show.



The car presented is a 1969 Series II 4.2L. This XKE under went a full engine rebuild in 2003. The owner who sat out to do a full rebuild lost his job and this Jaguar sat in his garage for 5 years. It was then sold to the next owner who received most of the parts in boxes. He then began to put the car back together along with a few part that were required to make it run. Chassis# 1R10199 received: new tires, new soft-top, and added cushion to the seats, a plexiglass rear window and a rare hard-top that was later repainted to match the body.



Excellent for someone looking for a good driver or restoration candidate!
