According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file, this particular XKE Coupe was constructed on August 20, 1965. It was originally primrose with black interior. Like many XKE's, this particular example was built for export and dispatched to Jaguar Cars, in New York. The first owner of this XK was not recorded.
In the 1990s the car passed to a collector based in the Pacific Northwest. At this time the car had been restored and painted in its current color scheme of red with a black interior. It would remain in the hands of this collector until his passing recently when it was acquired by the consignor.
Today, the car is in good running or order having been with a single caring owner for over half its life. At some point in time, the car had its engine replaced. The current unit and cylinder head numbers indicate it is from a series 1 2+2 car, which is to the identical specification as the original.
The paintwork and upholstery present very well. E-Type coupes make wonderful road cars and are fantastic event cars. This particular example is in good order and would be a great car for weekend shows or drivers events.
