1964 Jaguar XKE Coupe
The E-Type was introduced as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer in two-seater coupe form. Those made between 1961 and 1964 had 3.8-litre engines and partial synchromesh transmissions. Because of this, the 4.2-litre Type 1 generally became the most valuable form of the car. The Series 1 was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961. The domestic market launch came four months later in July 1961. These cars used the triple SU carburetted 3.8-litre six-cylinder Jaguar XK6 engine from the XK150S. The 3.8-litre engine was increased to 4.2 litres in October 1964. All E-Types featured independent coil spring rear suspension designed and developed with torsion bar front ends, and four wheel disc brakes, in-board at the rear, all power-assisted.
This is a matching number two seat coupe in opalescent blue exterior with dark blue interior. It has the 3.8 liter double overhead cam shaft six cylinder motor couple with the Moss 4 speed manual transmission.
This stunning XKE was professionally restored to JCNA concours standards by a noted Jaguar restoration shop in the southwest Chicago suburbs approximately 20 years ago. The current owner bought it in 2015 from the previous owner who had it restored. It was kept in a private collection in a climate controlled environment and driven on dry days. Northshore Sportscars has done all maintenance since 2015. It is complete with Heritage Certificate, tools, jack, owners handbook, and some records from previous ownership. The car looks and drives as new.
