1970 Jaguar XKE Roadster -- Additional Info:

This car is everything you want in a 1970 Jaguar XKE Series II Roadster. It has been given an exceptional restoration and barely traveled 500 miles since. That means an unbeatable color combo, fresh leather interior, the original motor, and much more. The E-Type (ok, XKE if you stick to the USA designation) is the icon that tops many lists of the most beautiful car ever produced. Jaguar wanted to utilize the strength of the racing-inspired monocoque chassis....Today you can see that on this example, because there has been a sizable investment in restoring it to a top quality condition. So the sheetmetal has precision gaps and the doors can be shut with authority. And the red paint is a modern clearcoat application that radiates a terrific shine. But form outshines the function on this car. Even with today's modern metal practices, it is nearly impossible to duplicate the mixture of aggressive deign with gentle curves on this boutique classic. As a desirable Series II car, it comes with all those delicate touches that made it an icon - the petite oval opening at the front, uninterrupted trim lines, and the thin chrome bumpers that hug the body. Take some time to really look this one over because all the delicate and expensive details are complete, which means it makes a memorable entrance everywhere. Beneath the snug tan folding roof is a supple tan leather interior. This has a premium feeling because the door panels, carpeting, center console, and dash present a total quality package. This one was built to be the one you can take everywhere in comfort thanks to features like the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. But more than just comfortable, you want this because of the way your heart skips a beat when you grab the classic leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel with leaping cat in the middle. And beyond that is a full set of crisp Smiths gauges to keep you focused on those trips down the back roads. Tilt the clamshell hood (bonnet) forward, and check out this Jag's beautiful motor. You can really tell the level of restoration just by the shine and detail of this iconic and long powerhouse. So you'll proudly show it off while also touting it's the original motor installed by Coventry nearly half a century ago. For drivers, the Series II cars are really the ones to own. The larger 4.2 liter inline-six provides deep reserves of torque that are very friendly for U.S. roads. The suspension is an unsurpassed combination of handling and ride comfort, and the E-Type benefits from the innovative independent rear suspension with inboard disc brakes for reduced unsprung weight. The dual exhaust system sounds spectacular as you take full control with the four-speed manual transmission. And chrome wire wheels have genuine knock-offs with grippy Dunlop tires. Complete with build receipts and restoration photos, you're looking at a restored icon that has all the right investments to make it a great driver and an instant head-turner the moment you leave the showroom. That's why you know you need to hurry to grab this turn-key XKE. Call today!!!
