Car sold for $46,440 at the 2004 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. Description:

"This car has had the same owner for 16 years. 59,000 original miles. Never wrecked, never rusted, straight. Numbers matching car. Total restoration was completed in 2002. Everything on it is either new or rebuilt. My goal was to bring the car up to near concours, yet still be able to drive and enjoy it. Restoration resulted in a very high standard car that drives as good as it looks."

Sports Car Monthly (4/05) comment from Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction 1/05: "Black/red leather. Odo: 60,193 miles. Perfect panel fit. Full restoration by previous owner in 2003. Near -perfect gaps. Chip in paint over left rear wheel. Minor scratches on driver's door chrome. Minor rippling in metal, but otherwise very nice black paint. Electric fans, aftermarket radio. Some mud underneath but looks clear of rust. Clean, tidy engine bay. Recent Interstate battery. Immaculate throughout; could be competitive in concours at a regional level with very little work but not a national contender without a total redo, Jaguar judging being as fanatic as it is. Cond: 2. Sold at $58,320. Purchased for $46,440 at last year's B-J auction by an SCM subscriber, with 59,780 miles showing. $11,880 gross profit probably translates into about breaking even plus a little after fees, commission, insurance, etc. are factored in. Hope the 413 miles covered were fun ones. Restoration costs haven't gone down in the past year, so this was not a crazy buy, but getting to the fully-priced level for a Series II."

This 1970 Jaguar XKE Series II roadster was refurbished around 2003 and was purchased by the current owner in late 2022, after which approximately $38k was spent performing maintenance and repairs, re-chroming trim, and replacing the tires. The car is finished in black with a black soft top over maroon leather upholstery. Powered by a 4.2-liter inline-six linked with a four-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential, the car is equipped with dual Zenith-Stromberg carburetors, a louvered clamshell hood, 15″ wire wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, an AM/FM radio, and Alpine speakers. This XKE roadster is now offered by the seller on behalf of the owner with service records from current and prior ownership, tire-changing tools, and a Pennsylvania title.

The body was stripped to bare metal and repainted in black around 2003 during the aforementioned refurbishment, when the black soft top was replaced. The bumpers were re-chromed in 2023. Exterior equipment includes a black top boot, a driver-side mirror, wraparound bumpers, bright trim, a louvered clamshell hood, and dual exhaust outlets.

Chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-off hubs and are mounted with Vredestein Sport Classic tires measuring 185VR15. The wheels were replaced in 2003, and the tires and inner tubes were replaced in 2023. Braking is provided by four-wheel discs with inboard rear rotors.

The cabin features bucket seats that were reupholstered in maroon leather in the early 2000s along with a color-coordinated center console, door panels, and carpeting. Interior appointments include a British Leyland–branded AM/FM radio, Alpine speakers, a wood shift knob, a heater, and a locking glovebox. Discoloration is noted on the reverse side of the driver seatback.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel sits ahead of Smiths instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 5k-rpm redline as well as an analog clock and gauges for voltage, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows less than 100 miles, approximately 50 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 4.2-liter inline-six was factory equipped with dual Zenith-Stromberg carburetors and rated at 246 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque when new. A replacement fuel pump and sending unit were installed in 2016.

The engine stamping pictured above matches what is shown on the identification plate located elsewhere in the engine compartment.

Power is routed to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. A leak from the limited-slip differential was addressed under current ownership.

Handwritten notes indicate that approximately $63k was spent on the early 2000s refurbishment, and roughly $38k in service and refurbishment records from current ownership will accompany the vehicle along with tire-changing tools.

The Pennsylvania title carries an “Antique” brand.

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?
