*Please note that this 1966 E-Type is for sale only as a Classic Showcase restoration project. Please see our restoration page for further information.
This XKE has held long term ownership in one family since 1972, and is showing 93k - which is believed to be original. The E-Type has mostly original interior, and a replacement soft top, and comes complete with service receipts totaling over $7,000 in work. The best part here is - it is a matching numbers example that is a solid car with just minor metalwork needing to be completed. The XKE is running and driving condition now, and is an excellent candidate for a comprehensive restoration to show or show/driver level.
During the course of the restoration, the roadster will receive the following: the vehicle will be stripped to bare metal, placed on a rotisserie, metal finished, leaded, all body parts fitted to the car and chrome, prepared for primer, sealer, paint, base, clear, color sanded and buffed to a fabulous finish. The car has not yet been painted, so the color is open to the desire of the purchaser. All systems will be gone through and the engine will be rebuilt back to factory specifications. The transmission, clutch system, hydraulic system will be restored and the car will receive all new rubber. All chrome will be re-plated. The car will receive a complete new custom tailored and fit interior in the correct materials by our upholstery department. An MP4 video of the restoration process will accompany the vehicle. Upon completion of the restoration this Jaguar will be a great example to drive, enjoy and compete in shows.
