Jaguar : XKE

1969 E Type Convertible

Miles: 64000 Doors: 2 doors

Transmission: Manual Interior: Black

Engine: 6 - Cyl. Year: 1969

VIN Number: 1R 8956 Exterior: Green

Vehicle Description: 1969 JAGUAR 4.2 S2 XKE CONVERTIBLE. Rebuilt in 1998 by a retired engineer, the body is straight, all metal and no rust. All the body and mechanical components have been stripped, cleaned, rebuilt or replaced and painted as necessary. The body paint is British Racing Green, both the chrome and convertible top are good. The dashboard is from an S1, so it retains the starter button and the toggle switches. All gauges are present and work correctly, except the tachometer which seems to run at half speed. The original interior has been replaced with black leather from Bassetts, including the reclining seats, though the trunk retains the original Cinnamon. The odometer is showing 64K miles, but the true mileage is unknown. The engine has a replacement block, the engine compartment has been detailed, including the firewall. The chrome wire wheels are in excellent condition with almost new Michelin X tires, except the spare. Car has current safety inspection sticker.

The car starts on the button, it runs well but the Stromberg carburettors could use another rebuild. The clutch, gearbox and differential are in good condition and the car drives and stops in a straight line. During the restoration, the original doors were replaced with doors cut down from an XKE coupe by removing the glass frame, which means that the chrome finishers usually found on an XKE convertible do not fit. The fitted doors are in excellent condition, though the drivers’ side glass needs a little help to lift correctly. The sale includes a set of rusted original doors with all the correct hardware including the window lifts, the chrome finishers and replacement door skins. Convertible doors are also available used from yards around the country, or new from Hutson Motor Company in the UK.

Check out the photos for a detailed look at the quality of this car , this is a 6 cylinder Jaguar convertible that you can afford to buy, drive, enjoy and work on if you choose.

Ebay item 8/3/22

www.ebay.com/itm/125435871863

Current bid $5,601 reserve not met 9 bids 1 day left in auction 27k miles, car now in Morgantown, Pennsylvania, previously Boston, Massachusetts, buy it now price $110,000.

Note: this car brings into question the green car posted in '03, today's auction includes a photo of the VIN 1R8956, that said it was 19 years ago, cars can change color.

Seller's description:

Exterior

Signs of prior bodywork, as stated by our consignor, are slightly evident in the cracked and checked respray of Pale Primrose that bathes the steel body of this sporty Brit. It still retains its shine, and the steel panels retain their consistent gaps. Nice thin wrap-around bumpers are in very good condition adorn the front and rear and the pesky government hasn't intervened yet with their mandated 5mph crash bumpers. A side view is candy for the eyes as the line in this car is unmatched. On top, a black vinyl roof is on that presents with a heavily yellowed rear plastic window, a few small tears and some seam separation. 15-inch chrome wire wheels with knock off Jaguar badged center hubs are wrapped with older 185R15 thin red stripe rubber, (no Avons here). No visible rust, just beautiful lines accentuated by near perfect chromed trimmings.

Interior

Jaguar hit the mark on this interior, making use of fine leathers and interior surfaces just as original and our consignor has kept it that way. Two nearly pristine buckets, recovered not long after our consignor purchased the car, sit in a spacious driver and passenger compartment, and are backed by a large carpeted storage area, which also doubles as top storage when the roof is lowered. These buckets are finished in a tan tuck and roll leather with smooth bolsters. The leather remains crack free but there is some wear noted on the driver's upper outside facing bolster. Fronting the buckets is a pristine black leather padded dash, which is peppered with various Smiths gauges, toggle switches, and sliders for cool air, fan speeds, and lighting. A matching leather center console rises to the dash and contains the obligatory ashtray as well as the shifter and chrome parking brake handle. Noted is a cigar lighter just above the aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette player, as smoking those "fags" is so pedestrian! Tan carpeting covers the floors and is protected by Coco style floor mats. Of note, a few spots of heavy rust are seen in the rear of each of the door jambs.

Drivetrain

Pulling the bonnet forward we can reveal the entire engine bay and front suspension and have unlimited access to all areas. Neatly inside the patinaed engine bay is an original 4.2 Liter DOHC inline 6 cylinder, which is fed by 2 Stromberg carburetors and is capable of making 245hp. An original 4-speed manual transmission is on back, and the rear axle sports 3.54 gears. Surfaces display a nice patina and light surface rust with light corrosion.

Undercarriage

Looking good underneath with rust free components, and nice straight steel frame and floor pans. There is some rust beginning on the pinch weld area of both rocker panels and surface rust is noted on some suspension and braking parts but all else is coated in a liberal application of black undercoating. Independent coil spring suspension is all around with the rear being a quad coilover set up, as are disc brakes. A dual exhaust is seen and has some surface rust but remains solid and leak free.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
