1966 Jaguar Series I FHC 4.2.Litre
Beautifully Restored and Finished in Striking Black / Red Leather / Dunlop Alloy Wheels
Heritage Certificate, Upgraded 4.2 Litre 6-Cylinder, Maintenance Records
This desirable Series I Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) is being offered as part of an extensive collection of European vehicles. The Jaguar has a history of ownership by prominent, affluent enthusiasts, and vintage race drivers.
The XKE is finished in a stunning color combination of black with a red leather interior. The Jaguar was manufactured on December 9, 1965 as a USA export. The Jaguar Heritage Certificate, #38948, documents the cars original numbers as follows:
– Engine # 7E 7160-9
– Chassis # 1E 32330
– Body # 4E 23481
– Gearbox # EJ 6346
The XKE retains the factory correct chassis and body number documented by a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Originally factory produced in Sherwood Green with beige interior, the Jaguar received a high quality, complete re-spray to its current and more pleasing black with red leather interior.
Cosmetically, the car is striking, with quality paint over very straight panels. Despite the restoration being completed several years ago, the paint has held up extremely well in part due to the cars minimal use. The paint has very few blemishes, with any slight imperfections not detracting from its overall appearance. The undercarriage is solid and clean with the appearance of originality, including spot welds on the rockers, and other locations. The bright-work is excellent with no pitting, or damage. The lenses and glass are similarly nice, with a few extremely small marks in the windscreen, but no other significant issues. The covered headlights and surrounding trim are in equally nice condition. Rubber trim is excellent and supports a trim removed, quality respray. Rubber window trim and surrounding chrome is excellent, emblems are free from damage, and side glass and trim in lovely condition.
The interior is in lovely condition and in its correct factory configuration. The leather seating surfaces are free from damage showing the patina of fine leather. The wool carpets are in very nice condition, covered by Jaguar rubber mats along with a set of virtually new red & black cocoa mats. The dashboard, switches, controls, and instruments are all excellent and correct. There is a radio blanking plate and the interior shows no significant departures from how the interior would have originally been trimmed from jaguar. The correct material on the kick panels has been fitted, and the headliner is excellent wool broadcloth. The steering wheel is in beautiful shape, with a pleasant finish and no cracks. The load space was nicely redone to match the rest of the interior and the area beneath the trunk floor is free from damage and clean.
As a 4.2 liter, later SI, the Jaguar was rated at 265hp by the factory. Previous owners report this car receiving the benefit of a high compression head and upgraded pistons, raising horsepower to an estimated 300hp. In a car with a weight of ~2,700 lbs., performance is exhilarating.
The file of repairs/maintenance completed by the cars current owner is including and supports the care that the car has received. While the file is too extensive to list in detail, highlights of repairs within the past ~1,000 miles is as follows:
Safety inspections, rotate tires, adjust belt tensions, complete oil service
