4.2 I6 NUMBERS MATCHING SERIES II, SAME FAMILY OWNED FOR 28 YEARS, NICE SURVIVOR
This car is everything you want in a 1970 Jaguar XKE Series II roadster – an interesting color, great options, the original six-cylinder, and an unbeatable price.
The E-Type (ok, XKE if you stick to the USA designation) is the icon that tops many lists of the most beautiful car ever produced. Jaguar wanted to utilize the strength of the racing-inspired monocoque chassis. Today you can see that on this example that remains solid with doors you can still shut with authority. But form outshines the function on this car. Even with today's modern metal practices, it is nearly impossible to duplicate the mixture of aggressive deign with gentle curves on this boutique classic. As a desirable Series II car, it comes with all those delicate touches that made it an icon – the petite oval opening at the front, uninterrupted side lines, and the thin chrome bumpers that hug the body. Take some time to really look this one over because all the delicate and expensive details are complete on this one.
Beneath the black folding roof is a cool mint green and black interior that coordinates nicely with the exterior. The newer roof and seat covers give this iconic roadster a fresh feeling on the inside. And this is furthered by door panels, carpeting, center console, and a dash that present just as nicely. There's plenty of great interior features, including an AM/FM/cassette stereo and provisions for air conditioning. Besides comfort, it feels great when you grab the iconic wood-rimmed steering wheel and wood gearshift knob. Beyond this is a full set of Smiths gauges to keep you focused on those trips down the backroads.
Tilt the clamshell hood (bonnet) forward, and check out this Jag's original motor. For drivers, the Series II cars are really the ones to own. The larger 4.2 liter inline-six provides deep reserves of torque that are very friendly for U.S. roads, and the recently rebuilt dual Stromberg carburetors will keep this power delivery reliable for years to come. The suspension is an unsurpassed combination of handling and ride comfort and the E-Type benefits from the innovative independent rear suspension with inboard disc brakes for reduced unsprung weight. The dual exhaust system sounds spectacular and chrome wire wheels are genuine knock-offs with grippy Michelin tires.
You know how valuable a numbers-matching, complete XKE is worth. That's why you know how good a deal this one is, and how quick you're going to need to be to grab it. Call today!!!
