Lot #108575

This 1962 Jaguar XKE Series I Roadster is said to have been purchased by the seller’s father in 1966, and a refurbishment in the 1990s involved body repairs, a repaint in Opalescent Gunmetal, and an interior re-trim in black leather. The car is powered by a 3.8-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and additional equipment includes a black soft top, 15” knockoff wire wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, covered headlights, split chrome bumpers, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. Work performed in 2022 reportedly involved overhauling the triple SU carburetors, installing a battery cutoff switch, and replacing the fuel pump. This Series I XKE is now offered with manufacturer’s literature, a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.

Finished from the factory in Opalescent Gunmetal, the car is said to have been repainted during a refurbishment in the mid-1990s after several decades of storage. Work reportedly involved repairing left-side accident damage sustained in the 1960s, as well as re-plating the bright exterior trim. Exterior features include a black soft top, a louvered clamshell hood, covered headlights, dual center-exit exhaust outlets, and split chrome bumpers with overriders.

Chrome-finished 15″ knockoff wire wheels are retained via two-eared spinners and mounted with 205/70 Cooper CS5 Grand Touring tires. Stopping power is provided by servo-assisted four-wheel disc brakes with inboard-mounted units at the rear. The seller notes a vibration while driving at higher speeds.

The cabin features bucket seats trimmed in black leather with color-coordinated door panels and carpets. Bright metal trim adorns the dash and center console. The car is not equipped with a radio, and has wear on interior surfaces.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel fronts Smiths instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer and a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset clock, while auxiliary gauges are mounted in the center of the dash. The five-digit odometer shows 45k miles, approximately 3k of which have been added since the refurbishment. Total mileage is unknown.

The 3.8-liter inline-six features triple SU carburetors that were overhauled in 2022, per the seller. The fuel pump and engine oil were also replaced at that time, and a battery cutoff switch has been added. The seller notes an oil leak.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.

A Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate shows the original configuration and colors along with identification numbers for the chassis, engine, body, and gearbox.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
