1973 JAGUAR XKE-V/12 ROADSTER
Our car is one of those later, more powerful cars. It was purchased new by the patron of a local family and remained with him at the family estate, moving to their Florida home in winters, until we were able to purchase the car from him in 2009, then with @46,000 miles. We then sold the car to another local (Bedminster) enthusiast who drove the car sparingly, covering an additional 3,000 miles until 2013 at which we sold it to another local British car collector, a transplanted Brit from Mountain Lakes. He recently sent the car to Hibernia Auto Restorations to individualize it a bit and make it as close to new condition as possible. They have repainted the car in its original Carmen Red, installed new—as original-- Biscuit leather, had the original engine fully rebuilt, installed a new 5-speed Tremac transmission—a preferred replacement for the original 4-speed unit--and had a couple of interior touches individualized for himself. The “butterfly” rocker switches have been replaced with toggle switches, reminiscent of those on the original Series I XKE, and engine-turned metal has been installed behind those switches and on the top of the console. In a nod to the original E-Type, the original 4 Stromberg carburetors have been replaced with 4 new SU units, similar to the 3 SU's with which the original E-Types were fitted (the originals have been kept with the car.) Additionally, the rather cumbersome bumper guards which were fitted in 1973 and 1974 have been replaced with pretty chrome overriders, again reminiscent of the E-Types of the earlier years. The car now drives beautifully with wonderful cosmetics to match. Original manuals and records accompany the car along with, of course, the full local provenance of the car since new. 52,245 miles. $95,000.
