This 1962 Jaguar XKE Series I coupe was acquired by the current owner in 2018 as a non-running project that is said to have remained in storage for over 25 years. It subsequently underwent a mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment that is noted to have involved repainting the body, re-trimming the interior, and overhauling the engine, differential, suspension, and brakes. The car is finished in metallic blue over black leather and is powered by a 3.8-liter inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Further equipment includes an electronic ignition system, triple SU carburetors, Gaz shocks, and 15” wire wheels as well as a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a heater, and an AM/FM radio. This Series I coupe is now offered with an extra set of four 15″ wire wheels, a collection of spare and removed parts, and a Utah title in the seller’s name listing the car as a 1963 model.
The car is said to have left the factory finished in Opalescent Silver Blue and was repainted under current ownership after installation of replacement floor panels. Equipment includes a louvered hood, headlight covers, split chrome bumpers, and a stainless-steel exhaust system with twin central outlets.
Chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-off spinners and are mounted with Vercelli Classic 787 thin whitewall tires. A full-size spare is stowed in the trunk. Gaz shocks were fitted and the suspension was overhauled as part of the refurbishment along with the four-wheel disc brakes, according to the seller.
The cabin houses low-back bucket seats that have been re-trimmed in black leather. A Jaguar-branded push-button AM/FM radio is installed within the center stack, and the car is equipped with a heater as well as lap belts for the driver and passenger.
A wood-rimmed steering wheel frames a Smiths tachometer with a 5,500-rpm redline accompanied by a 160-mph speedometer. Smiths and Lucas auxiliary gauges are centrally mounted, and the analog clock is inoperative. The five-digit odometer shows 66k miles, approximately 350 of which have been added under current ownership.
The 3.8-liter inline-six was reportedly rebuilt as part of the refurbishment. It is equipped with triple SU carburetors as well as a high-output starter, a CoolCat fan, and an electronic ignition system. The seller notes an engine run-on condition after the engine is turned off.
The serial number stamping on the cylinder head is shown above, and a photo of the engine block stamping is presented in the gallery.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. The differential is said to have been overhauled by the seller.
A selection of spare and removed parts are included in the sale along with paint and an additional set of 15″ wire wheels.
The Utah title is listed as a corrected title.
