This 1973 Jaguar XKE is a Series III roadster that was built on June 12, 1973, and first distributed via British Leyland Motors of New York. It spent approximately 32 years in Pennsylvania and was acquired by the selling dealer in 2020. The car is finished in Dark Blue with a black soft top over French Blue leather upholstery, and power comes from a numbers-matching 5.3-liter V12 paired with a four-speed manual gearbox. Features include a color-matched hardtop, air conditioning, a British Leyland AM/FM radio, AMCO bumper bars, and a Moto-Lita steering wheel. A compression test was performed in preparation for the sale, but further sorting may be required due to several years in storage. This XKE is now offered with factory books, tools, keys, a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, service records, car show plaques, and a clean Texas title.

The car was delivered from the factory in Dark Blue and features chrome bumpers with impact bumper blocks and AMCO bumper bars, a driver-side mirror, and a quad-outlet exhaust. Imperfections in the finish can be seen up close in the gallery, along with paint meter readings, lenses, and glass etchings.

Chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels wear older Dunlop and Michelin whitewall tires that should be replaced due to age. A matching spare wheel is mounted below the trunk floor. The black soft top features a plastic rear window and a matching boot. A color-matched hardtop and stand is included.

The cabin features bucket seats trimmed in French Blue leather with a matching center armrest, door panels, and carpets. Amenities include air conditioning, a British Leyland AM/FM radio, and an AMCO shift knob and rubber floor mats. The leather is said to have been re-dyed during previous ownership.

The wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel fronts factory Smiths instrumentation including a 7k-rpm tachometer, a 160-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges that extend across the dashboard. The five-digit odometer shows just over 38k miles.

The 5.3-liter V12 features single overhead camshafts for each cylinder bank along with four Zenith-Stromberg carburetors. The results of a compression test performed by the selling dealer are provided and additional service is recommended following several years in storage.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. Straight exhaust pipes are fitted, and undercoating was reportedly applied to the floor pans and wheel wells by the factory.

The engine stamping and chassis numbers correspond to the included Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.

Factory books, keys, tools, and service records are included in the sale, along with several car show plaques from previous ownership, including the 1988 Mid-Ohio Salute to Jaguar and the 1991 Pittsburgh Grand Prix.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
