This 1968 Jaguar XKE roadster was built on December 19, 1967, and distributed through Jaguar Cars, New York. The seller acquired it in 2010, and a subsequent refurbishment reportedly included a repaint in metallic silver, a replacement black convertible top, an interior refresh with black leather upholstery, and a rebuild of the 4.2-liter inline-six. The engine is paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and additional equipment includes four-wheel disc brakes, headlight covers, 15″ knock-off wire wheels, four-wheel independent suspension, dual Stromberg carburetors, a Bell stainless exhaust system, and a RetroSound stereo with a digital display. This Series 1.5 XKE roadster is now offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate and a clean Michigan title in the seller’s name.
Originally Primrose Yellow, the body was refinished in metallic silver during current ownership, and cracks in the body were repaired at that time. Features include a black Haartz convertible soft top, split front and rear bumpers, headlight covers, and chrome moldings. The seller states that refurbishment work during current ownership included a replacement windshield as well as re-plating the chrome bumpers and moldings.
15″ knock-off wire wheels are wrapped in Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. Four-wheel disc brakes with inboard-mounted rear rotors were standard equipment, and the car rides on four-wheel independent suspension with torsion bars up front and coil springs at the rear. The seller states that the braking and suspension systems were overhauled during current ownership.
The interior features low-back bucket seats upholstered in black leather, matching door panels, black carpets, and a black dash pad. The seller states that the chassis wiring harness was replaced during the refurbishment, and a RetroSound stereo is installed.
The wood-rimmed steering wheel frames Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer and a 6k-rpm tachometer. Ancillary gauges for battery voltage, oil pressure, fuel level, and water temperature are mounted in the center of the dash along with an analog clock. The five-digit odometer shows 52k miles, approximately 1k of which were added by the seller since 2010. True mileage is unknown.
The 4.2-liter inline-six is equipped with dual Stromberg carburetors and was factory rated at 246 horsepower. The seller states that the engine was rebuilt during current ownership and that the fuel system was overhauled at that time.
The engine block stamping “7E15398-9” matches the engine number on the underhood data tag as well as the engine number noted on the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission, and a Bell stainless exhaust system is fitted.
The Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate lists factory colors and identification numbers and shows a manufacture date of December 19, 1967.
