This 1965 Jaguar XKE roadster was built in October 1964 and is said to have been traded for a Shelby Cobra in 1976, after which it was stored in Piedmont, California for decades. The car was discovered in storage by the seller’s friend more than 20 years ago, and in February 2020 the seller purchased it from the family of its late owner and subsequently washed and waxed the exterior. The non-running car is finished in Cream with a black soft top over red leather, and its numbers-matching 4.2-liter inline-six is paired with a four-speed manual gearbox. Additional equipment includes 15″ wire wheels and an AM/FM radio. The paintwork is cracking, the soft top is torn and missing its rear window, the interior is worn and the seatbacks are ruined, and the car reportedly has not been been running or driving since the 1970s. This XKE roadster project is now offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, a tool roll, a knock-off hammer, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The car was delivered new in Cream white with a black soft top, and the seller states that the hood appears to have been refinished. The torn soft top is missing its rear window, the trunk lid exhibits corrosion, and the paintwork is cracked and discolored. Additional features include headlight covers as well as chrome-finished bumpers with guards.
Rust-covered 15″ wire wheels with two-ear Jaguar knockoffs wear aged and cracked radial tires. A 1993 registration tag is affixed to the black California license plate at the rear of the car, and a matching plate is attached to the lower front fascia.
The car left the factory with a Red Connolly leather interior, which now shows tears, cracking, and other signs of age. The seatbacks have been torn apart, and mold is present in the cabin. A period AM/FM radio with a gold face is mounted in the factory location.
The wood-rimmed steering wheel wears a Jaguar center crest and sits ahead of a black dashboard. Factory Smiths instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer with an inset analog clock, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 9,500 miles, and no mileage records are available. Gauges for coolant temperature and coolant pressure have been added.
The 4.2-liter inline-six features triple SU carburetors and is paired with a four-speed manual gearbox. The seller has not attempted to start the engine.
The serial-number stamping on the engine block reads 7E 1317-9, which matches the data plate affixed to the car as well as the accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate. Matching chassis and body stampings.
The Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate shows an October 1964 build date, the factory Cream over Red color scheme with a black top, and delivery to US distributor Jaguar Cars in New York.

This is my new car. Dry California car with original panels and no welding or replacement needed. Had it running within an hour of receiving it. 9500 miles doesn't seem to be right but also not 109,500! Would love to know more history on this car.
