West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and rust free example of this 1969 Jaguar XKE E-Type Series II Convertible/Roadster with it's original matching # 6 cylinder 4.2L/246HP engine and 4 speed manual transmission with only 34K original but undocumented miles and finished in 'Signal Red' color paint with a black leather interior and a black soft top and with five chrome 'knock-off' wire wheels, jack, knock-off mallet, handbooks, wooden steering wheel and tonneau cover etc!
The car is reported to have only some 34K original miles and was purchased by the most recent owner in 1/2009 with an original 33,200 miles which was recorded as actual on the NJ title. The car is an older restoration in 'Signal Red' color with a beautiful black leather interior. Please note that this particular car is one of the few examples which was delivered direct from the factory with a rare and desirable Series 1.5 hood!
The Series II was built between 1969-71 and had open headlights without glass covers, a wrap around rear bumper, repositioned and larger front indicators and the tail lights were positioned below the rear bumper instead of above it as with the Series 1 & 1.5. The car had an improved cooling system with an enlarged 'mouth' and twin electric fans and better brakes. Detuned for the US with twin 'Stromberg' carburetors instead of the triple which the European models boasted (although please note that this particular car has been upgraded to three SU carburetors from a '67 car for superior performance as per the European models!). The Series II models were also easily identifiable with 'ribbed' cam covers instead of the earlier 'polished' covers and a redesigned interior with new seats and 'rocker' switches instead of the earlier' toggle' switches on the dashboard. AC and Power Steering were also now available as factory options.
The floor boards and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free! The car has no signs of any accidents of any kind and has a very straight body with no rust. It's 'Signal Red' color paint is in exceptionally fine condition and the car looks extremely impressive with a lovely black leather interior which is in complete and mostly original condition apart from an after market CD player and with the front seats, door panels, headliner, dashboard and carpets all in very fine condition throughout with no real flaws. The car has four chrome knock off wire wheels and also a chrome wire spare wheel located in the trunk.
The car drives as nice as they come with no known mechanical issues whatsoever. This particular car must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - a seriously striking example which turns heads wherever she goes showing pride of ownership throughout the years! The engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no noticeable oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and restored and rust free example of a 1969 Jaguar XKE Series II 4.2L roadster with its original matching #'s engine in exceptionally fine condition throughout being offered as a great daily driver or collectible classic car for any British classic car enthusiast or European classic car lover!
