This 1968 Jaguar XKE Roadster is powered by its numbers-matching 4.2L twin-cam straight-six and was mechanically refurbished few years ago by the previous owner’s son. Built in May 1968, this example spent much of its life in New Mexico and Texas. The car was stored from 1985 until 2010, when it was refreshed with new brakes and suspension components, a carburetor and water pump rebuild, a new fuel tank, new tires, and more.
Rust was removed from both footwells and the floorpans were replaced.
15” wire wheels were fitted with Vredestein 185/70 tires within the last two years.
The dash top was recovered by the prior owner, and the 50k miles shown on the five-digit odometer are believed accurate. The original radio does not function and the tachometer is incorrect.
The original 4.2L straight-six is paired to a 4-speed manual gearbox. The dual Stromberg carburetors and water pump were rebuilt during the refurbishment. Servicing for the cooling system included cleaning and re-coring the radiator, sand blasting the expansion tank, installing a new fan switch, rebuilding the fan motors, and installing new hoses. A new fuel tank and lines were installed, and the heater box was rebuilt. A recent oil service and carb adjustment were performed, and compression test results showed 140-145 psi across all six cylinders.
Newer stainless steel exhaust system and suspension components.
Receipts include:
New brake calipers, discs, pads, master cylinder, lines
Sway bar bushings
Outer and inner Fulcrum bearings
Sway bar link bushings
Rear axle U-joint
Clutch slave and master cylinders
Tie rods
Voltage regulator
Steering rack boots
Rear shocks and new coilovers
Rear hub bearing kit
Runs perfect! Never having being in an accident! Offered with a clear title in my name.
I have tried to describe the condition of this car as accurately as I can, there is no doubt that this is a fabulous opportunity for the right person and a reluctant sale on my part.
Inspections are by appointment and welcome
