1962 Jaguar XKE. Drives and shifts  beautifully. All system were rebuilt a few years  ago and very few miles put on the car since. All numbers match. I had the car repainted with a 2 stage, base coat, clear coat finish. Vredestein radial tires. Starts easily. I upgraded the Lucas starter to a high torque starter and the Lucas generator to a small, high output, aircraft type alternator for reliability. The original units will come with the car. Also added was a nice sound system with a multi disc cd changer in the trunk and 2 speakers mounted behind the seats and two in the console below the center gauges,  the rears being barely visible unless you go in search of them. Rust free car and was restored from a very solid car to begin the restoration.

I removed the front bumper with motif bar. I have it and it comes with the car. I simply prefer the look of the front nose this way, similar to the competition lightweight E Types of the early 60's. Very simple to put it back on.

I am selling the car to make room for a new project that is nearing completion and need the garage space. I still need to take a photo or two of the car with the top up. I have never had to put it up as I have never taken the car out on a bad day. Always kept in a dry garage.

All electrics work fine, and all systems function perfectly. Great brakes, all rebuilt when restored, along with the entire drivetrain and carbs. I had not started the car for a few months. Today I checked all fluids, pulled up the choke, turned on the key, hit the start button and the car started immediately. It always has. The triple ,2 inch carbs are all set perfectly and the car idles smoothly at 800 rpm with oil pressure at idle of some 60 lbs.

The floors are not the early flat floor style, but this is one of the first few cars that came with floor pans for more leg room. It is not the original style steering wheel. I changed it to this smaller wheel but have the Motolita wheel that came with the car when I bought it and it will come with the car.. I like this smaller steering wheel for ease of cornering and more leg room.

A beautiful car and a great investment.



I had a request for additional photos of the engine bay and underneath the car. I did not clean it up underneath as it is 100 degrees today, so forgive the bit of dirt and a couple of cob webs.

Playmate of the Year Raquel Pomplun gets a Jaguar F-Type

Sun, 12 May 2013 20:01:00 EST

The Jaguar F-Type is slinking its way into vastly divergent corners of the celebrity world. Lana del Rey is its songstress, Englishman-playing-American-terrorist Damien Lewis lead its cinematic debut in Desire, San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick gets the athletic endorsement, and now it's just been driven behind the "Adults Only" doors at the Playboy Mansion: Raquel Pomplun was gifted a year's use of an F-Type for being named 2013 Playmate of the Year.
There's a video below of Pomplun and her F-Type getting 'camera ready,' and a press release below that in case you want to, you know, "read the article."

Jaguar F-Type coupe to cost more than convertible?

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 10:59:00 EST

Jaguar may price the much-rumored F-Type Coupe above the F-Type Convertible, if a report from Australia's Drive is to be believed. What makes Jag think that such a pricing strategy would work? Porsche. Take a look at the German manufacturer's consumer site, and you'll notice that the Boxster is less expensive than the Cayman, despite being essentially the same car.
It's a fair point, and a price premium does a good job of emphasizing the sporting chops of the coupe over the open-air experience that normally entitles convertibles to higher MSRPs. It's unclear just how closely Jaguar will follow Porsche's example, though.
Both the Cayman and Cayman S boast an extra ten horsepower over a Boxster or Boxster S, and while this bump in grunt is negligible in every situation but an argument over which is "best," it isn't something to be ignored in the F-Type, particularly as cranking more power out of its supercharged engines should be a rather simple matter.
