This 1973 Jaguar XKE is a 2+2 Series III coupe equipped with its numbers-matching 5.3-liter V12 linked to an automatic transmission. The car was purchased by the seller from the estate of its longterm previous owner in New Mexico last year. Maintenance records begin in 1996 and cover a cosmetic refurbishment in 1999 that reportedly included a repaint and interior refreshment. Recent work performed by the seller included rebuilding the carburetors as well as installing new inboard rear brakes, front calipers, and a master cylinder. This XKE is now being offered for sale in New Mexico with a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, service records, owner’s manuals, and a clean Texas title. This example was repainted red in 1999.
Chrome 15” wire wheels are equipped with earless spinners and Pirelli P4000 tires. The rear inboard brakes, front calipers, and master cylinder were replaced during the seller’s ownership, while service records document additional brake and suspension work over the years.
The 2+2 cabin is equipped with black upholstery and rubber floor mats. The dash features late-model rocker switches, and the factory AM/FM radio was recently repaired. A new heater valve and control cable were installed, while the factory air-conditioning does not currently blow cold. Over 68k miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer, approximately 400 of which were added by the seller.
Power is supplied by a 5.3L V12 paired with an automatic transmission. Maintenance performed by the seller’s private mechanic in 2018 is said to have included a tune-up and a rebuild of the carburetors, as well as the installation of a new radiator, thermostat, heater control valve and control cable. The engine bay and undercarriage were recently detailed.
Engine stamping #7S10142LB matches the chassis plate as well as the Heritage Trust certificate shown below.
The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate shows a build date of January 18, 1973 and confirms the factory colors as well as the chassis, engine, and body numbers.
