Up for sale is this 1968 Jaguar XK-E Series 1 ” Roadster, finished in Royal Blue with a blue vinyl top and blue leather interior, powered by a 4.2 liter inline six-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. This excellent example of the original XK is a two-owner car, with low mileage and a thoroughly documented history, is in concours-ready condition, needing nothing to be ready for the next owner. The Series 1.5’s, as they are referred to, was a transition model for the XK. They were the result of Jaguar working to accommodate various US safety and emissions regulations, and as unobtrusively as they could. Changes included removing the headlight covers, going with the smaller SU carburetors, and flat rocker switches on the control panel instead of the older toggle style found in Series 1’s. Between the slender bumpers and original style taillights mounted above them, these 1.5 XK’s are still close to the original shape that remains one of the most revered automotive designs in history, even for a company known for them. Originally purchased on March 2 nd , 1968, the owner covered 24,065 miles with this XK-E, keeping it garaged and stored for its entire life. When the second and current owner purchased it on February 24 th , 1989, it was kept in a climate controlled garage, and maintained by British specialty shops in the Carolinas. In 2003, a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration was performed by Von’s Restoration
