As a strict "MoPar or No Car" guy, I have always thought the Series 1 XKE was the sexiest car ever built. I could not pass the opportunity to purchase my '63 OTS in 2006. It was under construction and had been for nearly 20 years. I completed the interior & top installation Fall 2007 to finish this stunning example. (email)

Freshly complete after an extensive restoration that spanned nearly 20 years. This beauty has only 75 test miles and is ready for a new home.

Sellers description:
Built in May 1964, this car is only 361 cars from the end of the 3.8 Liter Series 1 production. Only 1,274 E-Type convertibles were exported from England in 1964. Although this car was dispatched in May of 1964, and it's first owner took possession in July of 1964, it is titled as a 1963 model. I have complete owner history of the car from 1973 to present. This car has been beautifully finished in Carmen Red with Biscuit interior and a Black Sun-Fast cloth top and boot cover. The original chrome wire wheels have been meticulously cleaned and polished and fitted with new knock-offs. The previous owner of this superb E-Type began purchasing parts and restoring the car in 1989. I have his receipts for parts and labor purchased between 1989 and 1999 for engine rebuilding, transmission and rear axle rebuilding, chrome work, powder coating, new trim parts, misc components, gaskets and seals, wiring harnesses, and instrument restoration. The gorgeous bodywork and paint was also applied during this same time frame. Literally every nut and bolt of this E-Type has been removed to be restored or replaced. Although a few liberties have been taken, this car has been restored back to original appearance with upgrades such as powder coated parts to extend the life and look of the suspension. When I purchased the car in 2006 it was almost completely assembled with exception of the whole interior, headlamp assemblies, top assembly, windshield trim, and miscellaneous trim. The engine, transmission, and rear axle assembly are original to the car with numbers matching those found on the body plate. These were rebuilt to original specification by qualified shops and the engine purrs like a kitten. There are less than 200 test miles on the completed restoration. Ratchet the choke lever up, turn the key, and push the starter button to bring the 3.8 to life. The engine displays great oil pressure and has never exceeded 90 C on even the hottest days in traffic. On the road the cooling is maintained at a constant 75 C. It does like the open road! All mechanicals seem to operate perfectly. The cam covers have been chromed to provide a lasting shine. The exhaust manifolds have been ceramic coated just like original. All suspension components have been powder coated either silver or black to provide superior wear. Correct components have replaced originals wherever possible. The interior kit is from BAS Jaguar Trim and is as correct as they come. Wilton wool carpets and Connolly leather adorn the seats and console trim. Seat frames were stripped and powder coated before all wood trim and tack strips were replaced. All new foam and seat cushions were installed for a firm and comfortable ride. Seat mounting rails were zinc plated and allow for proper seat adjustment. Jaguar floor mats have been installed since new to keep the rugs free from contamination. Jaguar logo seat belts were added for safety. A new 15" wheel has been installed to help with occupant egress. The original will be included with the sale. All gauges were refinished and calibrated. The odometer was zeroed at the time, so original mileage is not known. The clock worked for the first 6 months but has since stopped functioning. Both clock reset and trip meter reset cables are installed. New speakers have been installed in the radio console but I have not installed a radio. This is left to the new owner and his choice of stereo. The ash receiver has been re-plated and a outfitted with a new knob and trim bezel. All toggle switch arms have been replaced with new components. All chrome trim was either re-plated or purchased new. Original side glass was retained. The top frame assembly was dipped to remove both oxidation and paint before the grey enamel was applied. A new header bow was installed along with all new latches and mounting hardware. New leather straps and chrome top canopy bezels were installed. New and re-plated original fasteners were used to complete the assembly. Correct Lift-the-Dot studs were installed to secure the boot cover. The suspension and floor pan detail on this car is spectacular. Most parts powder coated to provide a durable and cleanable surface. I know, I know, the resonators are Series 2. Included within the boot is a matching new spare, tool kit, scissor jack with bag, and spinner removal tool. New boot boards cover the new fuel tank and lines. Finished boot area displays the Jaguar Service Manual and Complete Official Jaguar "E" provided with the purchase. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate verifies all engine and body numbers to be original. Also provides original owner information.
