BAT description:
This 1965 Jaguar XKE fixed-head coupe is a Series 1 car with a matching-numbers 4.2-liter straight six and documented long-term ownership history from new. Restored with a bare-metal repaint in the mid 1990s, the car is original in appearance and presents well in the video below. The car has a few sensible upgrades to improve drivability, which include a 5-speed manual transmission (original 4-speed included), electric fan, spin-on oil filter, upgraded alternator, remote rear brake bleeders and more detailed below. The current owner has had the car for 22 years and driven it around 20k of its 97k miles. The sale includes a Jaguar Heritage Certificate along with show trophies, original ownership materials, books, and tools.

Documents show the car was purchased new in Santa Monica by Charles H. Older, who was an ace Flying Tigers fighter pilot and later the presiding judge in the Charles Manson murder trial. After 16 years of ownership it was sold to Older's next-door neighbor before its 1994 purchase by the seller's father, who is the fourth owner of 22 years.

Originally Opalescent Blue, the car's Malcolm Sayer-penned body was repainted white in 1975. In the mid 1990s, it was stripped to bare metal and repainted in the current silver over the course of two years. The finish still shines over panels showing good fit with even gaps. The seller says the car bears signs of use, but had no rust or filler when painted.

The dashboard top and headliner were replaced as were the carpets, which remain protected by matching tri-tone coco mats. Blue leather seats are unrestored and still show well with expected wear. Three-point seat belts have been fitted up front. Much of the rear interior is thought to be original.

The signature E-Type wood wheel is uncracked and in good shape with an unfaded horn button. Smiths gauges were freshened, while knobs, Series 1 toggle switches, and levers show minimal signs of use. The updated 5-speed retains the stock shifter and knob for an original look. The clock is inoperative as is the dealer-installed Blaupunkt radio.

The original 4.2-liter twincam inline six #7E5183-9 was reportedly rebuilt in the mid 1990s. With seven main bearings and fed by triple SU carburetors, it was good for 265 bhp and 283 lb·ft of torque when new.

A T5 five-speed manual transmission with 0.73:1 fifth gear replaced the original four-speed in 2004. The original numbers-matching gearbox #EJ4202 is included in the sale. Independent rear suspension was also overhauled, and the inboard rear disc brakes were fitted with remote bleeders.

Some interesting Background to this car in the Bat comments
From ED3000:

gparker10: I am one of the previous owners of this car (and recent purchaser on BAT of a beautiful MGB). I bought it around 1985-86, I believe (I'll have to dig and check what records I might still have). I bought it from Bob Kramer in Annapolis (Bob was a high-ranking rocket scientist at NASA who was making room in his garage for a Maserati Bora and who was also selling a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso). I left the Jag in care of my brother for three years (89-92) in Syracuse NY while I was in Italy. I then had it shipped to San Francisco where I lived for one year. I drove it from San Francisco to Washington DC in August 1993; the only issue was a broken fan belt somewhere in Minnesota. Eventually sold it to your father (I assume) in 1994 or 1995 (don't recall exactly) - I had no garage and had just bought a house, etc etc. I knew then I would kick myself, and of course I have ever since, and still miss it. It was white and had the original 4-speed transmission which had been rebuilt in the Washington area by the previous owner and which worked great. I also believe (but am not sure) that the seats (blue leather) were not original but had been redone beautifully. I recall vividly the interesting history of the first owner having been the Charles Manson judge (though the story I was told was that he had sold it because after the Manson trial his life was believed to be permanently in danger and the Jag was just too conspicuous) - I never communicated with Judge Older, but I see you did and got the real story! This is a spectacular car. It was always in great condition, and it is great to see that it has been brought to such a high level now! GLWTS. I of course would be willing to buy it back for up to twice what I sold it to your dad for (make that three times, no, five.) :-}
