    Sellers description:
    1962 Jaguar XKE. Drives and shifts beautifully. All system were rebuilt a few years ago and very few miles put on the car since. All numbers match. I had the car repainted with a 2 stage, base coat, clear coat finish. Vredestein radial tires. Starts easily. I upgraded the Lucas starter to a high torque starter and the Lucas generator to a small, high output, aircraft type alternator for reliability. The original units will come with the car. Also added was a nice sound system with a multi disc cd changer in the trunk and 2 speakers mounted behind the seats and two in the console below the center gauges, the rears being barely visible unless you go in search of them. Rust free car and was restored from a very solid car to begin the restoration.

    I removed the front bumper with motif bar. I have it and it comes with the car. I simply prefer the look of the front nose this way, similar to the competition lightweight E Types of the early 60's. Very simple to put it back on.

    I still need to take a photo or two of the car with the top up. I have never had to put it up as I have never taken the car out on a bad day. Always kept in a dry garage.

    All electrics work fine, and all systems function perfectly. Great brakes, all rebuilt when restored, along with the entire drivetrain and carbs. I had not started the car for a few months. Today I checked all fluids, pulled up the choke, turned on the key, hit the start button and the car started immediately. It always has. The triple, 2 inch carbs are all set perfectly and the car idles smoothly at 800 rpm with oil pressure at idle of some 60 lbs.

    The floors are not the early flat floor style, but this is one of the first few cars that came with floor pans for more leg room. It is not the original style steering wheel. I changed it to this smaller wheel but have the Motolita wheel that came with the car when I bought it and it will come with the car.. I like this smaller steering wheel for ease of cornering and more leg room.

    A beautiful car and a great investment.

    Sellers description:
    Our XKE is an older restoration, of some 10 years. It has always been in a dry, heated garage. It has only been driven on sunny days, locally.

    All numbers match as per original manufacture.

    New tires and new Dayton stainlees/ chrome wire wheels are a just couple of years old, and still as new and run true. Very little mileage on the car since restoration, and only taken out 3 or 4 times last summer. Drives excellent. All systems work fine- brakes, cooling fuel, electric. All systems of the XKE were completely restored. I will post a few scanned photos of the car during restoration. Everything was gone over, rebuilt or replaced. Stainless steel exhaust system and an upgrade to a high torque starter motor ( original Lucas starter comes with the car).

    I changed the Lucas generator out for a very highly efficient, small aircraft alternator about 5 years ago and it has worked flawlessly. I still have the Lucas generator. It needs a rebuild and comes with the car. I also have the stock wood steering wheel that comes with the car, in great shape. I just prefer a smaller wheel The tires are the proper stock size, Vredesteins. I have the front bumpers and will put them for a new owner if they so wish. I just like 'the lightweight e-type' look, as was the Jag racing team cars of the early 60's.

    All the chrome was redone, seats redone, wiring, carbs, differential, engine, gearbox, brakes . It runs out straight and strong. I don't think I have ever put up the top. Rust free body. This was a clean car before the restoration was done.

    I love this car but have to scale down on my cars now as I age, and it would be nice to free up a garage space.
