Sellers description:
1966 series 1 Jaguar XKE 4.2 Coupe with triple carburetors in very good condition. I could call this a garage find, but that may be misleading since it was stored in my own garage. I bought over 30 years ago with the intent of restoring it. Shortly after I bought it, I changed the oil only to discover plenty of metal particles in the oil. I pulled the engine and did a complete rebuild, with new rings, bearings, and a valve hob.. I drove the car to work for a couple weeks, probably put something over 500 miles on the rebuild. Driving a car in the south during the summer without air conditioning is never fun, so I parked it in my garage with the intent of doing that restoration. I removed the bumpers and had them re-chromed. But, that's as far as I got. The car sat in my garage for the next 30 years. Recently, I removed the gas tank and sent it out for an acid wash, resealing, and painting. I cleaned out the fuel lines, rebuilt the fuel pump, rebuilt the carbs and replaced the condenser on the distributor, installed new spark plugs, and changed the engine oil. After that, the engine fired right up. But it was noisy, so I replaced the mufflers and resonators. The engine starts and runs, but could use some tuning. Since then I have sent all the caliper pistons out for rebuild, replaced the master cylinder with a new one, sent the brake booster out for rebuild, replaced all the brake pads with new, and turned the rotors. Because the IRS has to be removed to remove the rear rotors for turning, I went ahead and had it blasted and painted while it was out. The shocks were replaced when I parked the car 30 years ago. Tires have lots of tread, as they were new somewhere along the way.

The entire car is complete ( I believe nothing is missing) and very solid with a few dings and dents (mostly from being stored in my garage) but is in very good shape compared to most restoration projects. It is not full of bondo. I know of no bondo in this car. The trunk area is very solid and I've seen no rust holes anywhere. A good quality paint job would do this car wonders. The car had been re-sprayed the original color many years ago, but it was not a very good job.

It does not need floors, as they are very solid, nor does it need rockers. The carpet does not fit, as a friend of mine bought carpet on his way from England to the U.S. for a visit, and he bought it for the wrong car. So, replacement carpet is a must. The frame is straight with no kinks.

The manufacturers data plate is still on the car. I do have the original jack and spare wire wheel although there is no tire on the spare

Both the drivers window and the passenger are in excellent condition and function cranking up and down correctly. The original radio is in the car, I have not messed with it, and so I do not know if it works.

Let me say that this car has graced my garage for 30+ years and I have really wanted to keep her. So many times I've thought I could do her justice. However, too many other projects, and advancing age make it unlikely that I will ever do the restore, so I will let it go to the next proud owner.

Upon closer inspection, I discovered the point where the bonnet hinge attaches to the bonnet has been reinforced. This was done before I purchased the car. Yes, that is a dent on the passenger side of the bonnet. I have mentioned there are dings, dents, scratches, scrapes, etc. Not everything shows up in the photos.
