This unique 1966 E-Type has held limited ownership, and has been very well-cared-for. Featuring an exquisite color combination of Jaguar Dark Blue over a fiery Red leather interior, the roadster has received a rotisserie restoration performed by Jaguar professionals. The XKE was taken down to bare metal, metal finished, and painted in the spectacular finish you see today. On this inside, the E-Type’s interior was fully re-trimmed and included the addition of a well fit top to complement the entire look and feel of the car. In addition, an in-dash Kenwood AM/FM/CD radio and a sporty Nardi steering wheel are added to enhance the roadster’s steering and contribute to its spectacular look.
To enhance the roadster’s driving experience, its transmission was upgraded to a five-speed, along with a gear reduction starter, lightened flywheel, spin-on oil filter, improved cooling hoses, and a new set of high performance Weber carbs with special linkage. For improved dependability, an electronic ignition system, aluminum radiator (with auxiliary fan) and an alloy header tank were installed. The XKE sits atop a new set of six-inch wide Pirelli tires, complemented by deep-dish chrome wire wheels with knock-offs; even with all of its upgrades and enhancements, this XKE still maintains a stock appearance that is sure to please the Jaguar collector in search of a fine example of an iconic design.
Estimated to bring between $250,000 – $290,000, this exceptional car will be offered on March 28, at Auctions America’s Fort Lauderdale sale.
