This 1972 Jaguar XKE roadster is a Canadian-market example that was imported to the US in May 1972 and is finished in its original color combination of British Racing Green over Suede Green upholstery. The seller’s mother purchased the car in 1999 and has since added approximately 1k of its 20,600 indicated miles. Power comes from a 5.3-liter V12 paired with a four-speed manual gearbox. This Series III E-Type roadster is now offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, factory manuals, a repair manual, a knock-off wheel wrench, removed emissions equipment, and a clean Pennsylvania title in the seller’s mother’s name.
The British Racing Green exterior details imperfections including paint chips, one area of crazing, and whitish blemishes that resemble water spots but do not clean off.
Two-eared knockoffs secure the 15″ chromed wire wheels, which are mounted with 205/70 Pirelli P4000 tires. A black soft top is equipped, and a matching boot cover accompanies the sale.
Suede Green is the car’s original upholstery color, according to the Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate. The seat material can be seen above, and the headrests could use new stuffing. The seller notes that a screw is missing from the passenger sun visor and also points out a tear on the inner side of the passenger seat.
The cabin retains factory equipment such as a three-spoke steering wheel, center switchgear and auxiliary instrumentation, and an AM/FM radio. The radio is said to power on but cannot change stations. An added accessory switch turns on the radiator fans. The five-digit Smiths odometer shows less than 20,600 miles, approximately 1k of which reportedly have been added under current ownership.
The 5.3-liter V12 features four Stromberg carburetors and is linked to a four-speed manual gearbox. Approximately 10 years and 300 miles ago the car reportedly was serviced by Bobby Rahal Jaguar in Wexford, Pennsylvania, which included rebuilding and tuning of the carburetors, a brake-system flush, moving the ignition box from its factory location, and replacing the rubber doorsills. An ignition amplifier has been installed. Some removed factory emissions equipment is included in the sale.
Per the accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, this car was manufactured on March 22, 1972 and distributed through British Leyland, Canada. The original colors, serial numbers, and dispatch date are also listed.
Factory manuals and paperwork from early in the car’s life are further detailed in the gallery, along with the included literature and the wooden wheel wrench.
