Lot Description 1970 JAGUAR XKE 2+2 COUPE
Chassis No 1R43373
Engine No. 7R35041-9
Willow green with tan leather
Engine: 210bhp dual overhead camshaft inline 4,235cc six-cylinder, three SU side draft carburetors; Gearbox: 4-speed manual; Suspension: front, independent with torsion bars, rear, independent with coil springs; Brakes: four-wheel hydraulically-actuated discs. Left hand drive.
The 1970 Jaguar XKE Series II 2+2 Coupe offered here was last road-registered in 1978, three decades ago. It is equipped with the desirable synchromesh 4-speed manual gearbox and is largely complete and sound although for obvious reasons in need of a complete restoration. Powered by Jaguar's smooth, powerful and reliable 4.2 liter dual overhead camshaft six-cylinder engine, it will make a highly desirable car for shows, tours and open road events, with room for children, luggage, golf clubs or very supple adults in the back.
One of Jaguar's most commercially successful models, this 1970 XKE Series II 2+2 Coupe will be a rewarding project with satisfying results that continue well beyond the completion date of its restoration.
