1971 Jaguar XKE Coupe 2+2 V12 Series III Automatic Green with Tan Leather
If you are searching for a “good, solid driver” that you can enjoy going to the local shows with, we think you will really like this one!
Who doesn’t love a British Racing Green E Type Jag? Perfectly complimented with the “natural” tan leather interior. It seems to have enjoyed a rather pampered and easy life with its previous stewards over the past 50 years, although it has never had a full restoration. And to that point, it is clearly not a trailer queen or high-end show car.
Our seller is a very long-time customer with an eclectic interest in collectible vehicles. His enjoyment comes from driving and using them, He purchased this E Type in South Carolina four years ago and rarely drove it after his retirement, thus, the reason for his selling now.
The Mileage is confirmed by the last two owners to be the original at 43,744. Because of its time idle in storage, it was taken to an expert mechanic and sorted to include draining the tank and putting in fresh gas before rebuilding the four carburetors, new plugs, and ignition wires, the trans leak was fixed and a trans service was done. It’s ready for the open road now.
Options include Wire Wheels, Automatic transmission, and AirConditioning (A/C has not been used for many years and will require sorting!). The radio had been removed by a previous owner and was never replaced (with the sound of a V12, who needs one?). The paint is at least 10 years old and even with the expected flaws from age and use, it still looks great overall.
Mechanically, it’s ready to turn the key and enjoy. It starts with ease and runs, drives, and handles as you would hope for and expect.
