Ebay item 1/24/23

www.ebay.com/itm/165902704726

Classified ad price: $150,000, seller gateway-classic-cars, 91k miles, car now in Tulsa, Oklahoma, previously Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Seller's description:

Gateway Classic Cars of Tulsa has done it again and are proud to present this gem of a 1963 Jaguar XKE Coupe. This particular XKE scored a 98.76 on the Official Concours d' Elegance Judging Score Sheet from the Jaguar Clubs Of North America. Truly a work of art. This XKE is powered by a fierce inline 6 with Twin overhead cam, 3SU carbs and mated with a 5 speed Manual Transmission. Painted in an intoxicating high gloss Opalescent Maroon, on the inside the bucket seats, door trim, headliner and cargo space are all wrapped in beige leather and wine red carpet in the floorboards with correct seam tubing. The console features the alloy top wrapped in beige leather. Bumpers and exterior trim are in good condition as well, with high-quality plating. Beautiful chrome throughout with the correct chrome spoke wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires. Finishing touches include a factory Smiths Radiomobile radio and a beautiful, original-type three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel. This example is thoughtfully prepared for road use, yet has strong cosmetics that make it well-suited for participation in any car show. With its gorgeous presentation and striking color combination, this striking E-Type coupe will surely reward its next keeper for years to come..

Lot #129205

This 1963 Jaguar XKE is a Series I coupe that was refurbished and modified under previous ownership before being acquired by the current owner three years ago. The car is finished in burgundy over beige leather and powered by a 3.8-liter inline-six mated to a replacement five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes chrome 15″ wire wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, triple SU carburetors, an aluminum radiator, chrome bumpers, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a Blaupunkt push-button radio. An oil change was performed in August 2022. This XKE is now offered by the owner’s grandson in Oklahoma with service and refurbishment records, literature, spare parts, a service manual, owner’s manuals, and a clean Idaho title.

The body was repainted in Opalescent Maroon during previous ownership, and exterior features include split chrome bumpers, triple windshield wipers, dual side mirrors, glass headlight covers, and dual exhaust outlets. Paint blemishes and a cracked rear seal on the trunk are visible.

Chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-off spinners and are mounted with 205/70 Pirelli P4 All Season tires. A spare is mounted in the rear cargo area. Braking is handled by four-wheel discs with inboard-mounted rear rotors.

The cabin features low-back seats retrimmed in beige leather upholstery with burgundy piping along with matching door panels, sills, sides of the console, and contrasting burgundy carpets. Textured aluminum trims the dashboard and center console, and additional equipment includes lap seatbelts, a heater, a cigar lighter, and a Blaupunkt push-button radio.

A wood-rimmed steering wheel shows cracks and sits ahead of Smiths instrumentation that includes a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, an analog clock, and centrally positioned auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 99k miles, approximately 3k of which have been added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 3.8-liter inline-six features triple SU side-draft carburetors and was factory rated at 265 horsepower. An aluminum radiator with an electric fan has been added. An oil change was performed in August 2022.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a replacement five-speed manual transmission.

An owner’s manual will accompany the car along with refurbishment records and photos, a service manual, a car cover, literature, artwork, judging sheets, and removed parts.
