Car at auction 4/18
Current Bid: $30,000 Ends In: 3 days
This 1973 Jaguar XKE was acquired by the selling dealer six months ago from the previous owner of 20 years. The car was originally built as a 2+2 coupe and was converted to a roadster sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s. It is powered by its matching-numbers 5.3-liter V-12, which sends power to the rear wheels though a 3-speed automatic transmission. Nearly $9k of work was completed in late 2017 and early 2018, including a new steering rack, fuel pump, brake lines, tires, vacuum hoses, valve cover gaskets, belts, and more as described in the listing. The carburetors were also tuned and a compression test was performed. This series III XKE is now being offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, records back to 2004, and a clean North Carolina title.
The car is believed to have been repainted in its original White at some point and was recently buffed, polished, and cleaned in preparation of the sale. The bonnet was repainted in order to repair a dent, and bodywork was performed on the back-half of the car during the roadster conversion.
15″ chrome wire wheels wear fresh 205/70 Michelin tires. The seller notes that the soft top boot has a tear near the tie-downs and a chrome piece is missing from the front of the top itself, which is shown in a image.
The black leather interior looks well-preserved with only light creasing shown in gallery photos. Driver controls consist of a three-spoke leather-rimmed steering wheel, Smiths gauges, and center-mounted toggle switches on the dash. A period aftermarket head unit replaces the original item.
The air conditioning was recently converted to use R134a refrigerant, though the system only operates when set to the middle position. A new receiver/drier was also installed. The odometer shows 45k miles, about 80 of which have been added by the seller.
The 5.3-liter V-12 is equipped with two carburetors per cylinder bank and is backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission. A January 2018 service of $6k+ was performed by a Jaguar specialist. Work conducted during the recent maintenance as well as over the last two years included the following items:
Valve cover gaskets
Oil and filter
Synchronize and tune carburetors
Spark plugs and wires
Under-hood electrical wiring sorted
Front timing cover
Assorted drive belts
Cooling hose kit
Stamping #7S9757LA can be seen above, confirming the engine as original. A compression test conducted during the January 2018 service reportedly showed between 125-145 psi on all 12 cylinders.
A few photos of the underbody can be seen detailing the chassis and a newer stainless steel exhaust system. Recent work also included draining the fuel tank, replacing brake lines, a new fuel pump, installing rear shocks, replacing the differential mounts, radius arm bushings, resealing the speedometer driver, and fresh differential fluid.
The included Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate shows a build date of December 1972 and notes the original color scheme. Chassis number 1S 74328 BW, body number 4S 55963, and engine number 7S 9757 LA are recorded.

Ebay item 5/9/18
Motorcartrader.com is pleased to offer another great Jaguar E-type. This beautiful Jaguar E-type Series III V12 Roadster was previously owned for over 20 years. The car was originally built on December 22 of 1972 and dispatched on January 19 of 1973. It currently is finished in its original color combination of white with black interior. Furthermore, it is all matching numbers as per the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. This is a wonderful driving car with only 45,436 miles which we understand to be original. We have invested over $9,000.00 into this car in late 2017 and early 2018 to improve this car both mechanically and cosmetically. It needs nothing to be enjoyed as a driver.
