1966 Jaguar E-Type Series I1966 JAGUAR XKE
Series I Coupe
Here at MissChiTown we are a marketing service on eBay to assist private car collectors to market their collectible vehicles. One of the genres that have been a shooting star in the market place recently in terms of interest and value have been the Jaguar XKE’s.
Certainly, the Series I with the covered headlights in this eBay auction, is considered among the most desirable of the XKE’s. The private seller has told us that this car has the 4.2 litre engine and the original transmission that were both rebuilt. The car is in everybody’s favorite color, the original Signal Red with a black leather interior. The private seller tells us that all the gauges are working, wind shield wipers are working and the heater is working. The radio is Alpine AM/FM/Cassette.
This car of course has been loved for 43 years by its owner who has owned it since 1973 when it had approximately 39,000 on the odometer.
When it came time to replace the exhaust he upgraded to a stainless-steel flow through exhaust. This Jaguar even has the original hammer and jack!
The private seller has told us that he would have no qualms about taking this car on a long trip. The owner has sorted this car out over the years and the currently has 86,865 loved miles. In 1995 the car was completely taken down to bare metal everything was done that was necessary to the body before it was primed and painted. Also the interior was done prior to 1980 with a GW Bartlett leather interior. The dashboard was redone.
The private seller in wanting to be forthcoming has mentioned that the interior light switch has a mind of its own and sometimes must be jiggled in order for the lights to turn on but sometimes the lights work fine. The chrome rear taillights were not done and have a little bit of pitting. The clock is not working. The directional is not original.
Tires are Bridgestone 70 series tires.
The private seller tells us that this is a very beautiful driver presentation and not a Concours 100-point car.
Here at MissChiTown we are car collectors ourselves and love all the XKE’s. We know that there are those that like a roadster but from our point of view for the true beauty of an XKE you need the hard top to give it the beautiful silhouette.As Mr Ferrari said when he saw his first XKE that in his opinion it was the most beautiful car that was ever made...that is certainly saying a lot from a man that up to that time had seen every beautiful car.
In summary, we would say that the XKE’s have been rising very quickly in value and there seems to be no stopping them. Besides all that they are just one beautiful car and are great fun to drive. They are very quick and nimble and always attract a crowd. If you are looking for an XKE coupe this could be the one that would look great in your garage. We encourage you ask all your questions prior to bidding and we prefer phone calls 847- 774-4857. We try to answer all questions promptly. Thank you for looking!
