This intriguing 'barn discovery' XKE Open Two Seater has recently emerged from long term slumber in an Arizona garage.

Originally supplied to the U.S. market, it was built on the February 12, 1963 and dispatched from the factory at the end of that month. Imported through Jaguar Cars New York, as new it was liveried in cream paint, with a red interior and black top. Its original owner is recorded on the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate that accompanies the car as C. K. Ward.

At some point the car migrated west to California, as when found it still sported early 'black plate' license tags before settling in Arizona. In the course of its life it has received a 'blow over' of sky blue metallic paint, though its original scheme is clearly visible in the engine bay and other areas.

Complete with a factory hard top, this recent find is confirmed as a matched chassis and engine car from factory records, and appears to be both sound and straight. Owing to its relatively early production date it retains one of the more appealing aspects of these cars being its aluminum center console and dash. Its interior appears predominantly original and retains a period radio, while the exterior carries the popular period accessory of oval bumper bars/overriders.

These cars never looked better than in open form. With a hard top fitted, this desirable addition, it represents a great opportunity to restore an early example of the breed.

Please note this car is titled under chassis no. J63879037.

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?
