Car was sold at RM Sports & Classic Car Auction, Monterey, California, Saturday, August 14, 2004
Lot # 274 1962 Jaguar XKE SI
flat floor Roadster; S/N 876687; Engine
# ??357-9; Maroon/Biscuit leather,
Black cloth top; Estimate $80,000 -
$100,000; Older restoration, 3- condition;
Hammered Sold at $73,000 plus
commission of 10.00%; Final Price
$80,300 -- Chrome wire wheels, no radio,
later seats. A sound and presentable
XKE but showing the age of its restoration
with dented dashboard aluminum
trim, pitted exterior trim chrome and
interior showing age and use. Good paint
and impressively straight bodywork.
Clean underhood. Described in the catalog
as a 4.2 liter, by year and chassis
number this actually must be a 3.8 and
an early flat floor model as well. Considering
the mis-statement in the catalog the
Monterey bidders caught the mistake and
bid this Flat Floor E-type to a healthy
price appropriate to its specification, age
and somewhat aged presentation.

Additional information from above RM auction:
The desirable early 3.8 liter roadster offered here was purchased from a private European collection of highly collectable sports cars. Well maintained and kept in a climate-controlled environment this E-Type is in very good overall condition and is a solid driving example that the vendor reports is a fit and roadworthy car. A recent service has been performed which saw major detail given to the synchronized gearbox and brake system. This major tune-up included a rebuild of the brakes, carburetor and cooling system and replacement of all fluids. In addition, the seats have been upgraded for comfort.
Finished in classic maroon with biscuit interior and chrome wire wheels this E-Type has enjoyed careful maintenance and loving care, and should reward its new owner with the excellent performance and timeless good looks, just as Malcolm Sayer intended over 40 years ago.
