A great example of the 1969 Series II XKE. I have owned this car since 2012, it has been garage kept and well
maintained. I have put about 10,000 miles on it since I purchased it nine years ago, it is great fun to drive and
has always been dependable.

Interior and special options- This particular example is a four speed
manual, a rare option for 2+2s, and sports special ordered factory chrome plated steel wheels (wire wheels were
standard) as well as a Phillips FM radio which still works. All instruments, lights, and gauges work as they should
with the exception of the clock. The upholstery and carpets are 100% original and are starting to show their age a
bit. while clean, the carpets are a bit worn. the driver's seat has some cracking but is still holding together
on the whole. the passenger's seat and rear seats have seen very little use, and as such are in great shape
with the exception of a small stain on the rear seat which was present when I purchased the car. The trunk area is
very clean with no issues to note, as is the dash, with no cracks or warping. The headliner is in astonishingly
good condition with no signs of delamination from the roof. Exterior- Earlier in this car's life it had been a
concourse queen,

The paint is older but is still looking very good with no sun
damage and minimal oxidation. there are odd chips here and there but nothing severe, most notable is the one on the
nose of the hood which happened recently, I wanted to get it repaired but my body shop of choice has a two year
waiting list for new projects, and I just couldn't wait that long to get the car sold. Unfortunately a few
months ago it suffered a full delamination of the driver's side rear tire, which caused numerous small chips on
the rear quarter, it isn't glaring but it will definitely need to be addressed at some point. There is
absolutely zero rust in this car. Mechanical- I have had very few mechanical issues with this car over the years.
It did just receive a new brake master cylinder, plugs, plug wires, and distributor cap last year and the clutch
slave cylinder was replaced a few years ago. There is no smoke on startup and no noticeable oil consumption. It has
been known to drip a little oil if it sits without running for a while, which is normal. The dual electric cooling
fans work as they should, and the carburetors have never been temperamental, which is a blessing. It does have a
factory R12 air conditioning system but it is in need of a charge and probably re-sealing, the blower fan works
fine. The tires are brand new with less than 200 miles on them

Audi, Jag, Kia and Tesla top Strategic Vision 2014 Total Quality Index

Sun, 06 Jul 2014 13:03:00 EST

A couple weeks ago, J.D. Power released its latest Initial Quality Study, which gave high marks to Porsche, Hyundai and General Motors, with the latter earning more individual IQS awards than any other manufacturer. Now, it's Strategic Vision's turn, and it's doling out its praise not to Porsche, but to Tesla, which wasn't even included in the JD Power IQS.
The Model S was named the best vehicle overall in total quality, while Porsche's corporate brother and endurance-racing rival, Audi, was named the best premium brand, alongside Jaguar. Strategic Vision cited the Q5 and the ancient Q7 for individual segment awards, as well as the A5, which was a mere point off the top of its segment. SV also handed out compliments for the Audi's interior work. The win for the German brand is a nice improvement over its IQS score, with which it landed above the industry average, but solidly mid-pack.
Jaguar was without a segment winner, although SV did say that the Indian-owned English brand had a number of vehicles very near the top of their segments. This is the second significant win for Jag in two weeks, after it finished second overall on the JD Power IQS a few weeks ago.

Jaguar SUV mule doing Ring testing in Evoque clothes

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 14:15:00 EST

Jaguar has moved its Range Rover Evoque-bodied tests of the production C-X17 Concept from icy streets to the legendary Nürburgring, as work continues on the brand's first SUV.
Really, there's not a great deal of new stuff here. Based on the number plates, this is a different vehicle from the one we saw back in March, which we originally identified as the upcoming replacement for the Land Rover Freelander/LR2. The details, though, appear largely the same. The biggest distinction we can see between the March tests and this are the US-spec headlights, which add amber reflectors at their sides. Based on these shots, it does seem as if the C-X17 should be a fairly poised road vehicle, as the engineers hustle it around the 'Ring.
Of course, as soon our spies can capture images of a production-bodied C-X17, we'll be sure to pass those on to you. Until then, take a look up top for images of the Range Rover-bodied Jaguar as it tests at Germany's Nürburgring. You can also scroll down for our March images for the C-X17 mules testing on public roads.

Jaguar and Land Rover to consolidate dealerships

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 11:00:00 EST

Jaguar and Land Rover are set to merge their sales facilities, according to Inside Line. Jaguar Land Rover North America President Andy Gross says 45 percent of Jaguar owners also have an SUV in their stable, so it makes sense to give customers as much exposure to the cat's high-riding cousins and possible. The number of overall outlets will remain the same, and the brands will reportedly remain separate on the showroom floor, however.
So far, just one dealer has made the move to combine under the roof of one 68,000 square-foot facility in Paramus, New Jersey (above), though a further 20 are ready to make the shift and become Jaguar Land Rover outlets. Gross believes the shift is necessary so that his company's dealer network will accurately reflect the company's products. We'll see how cozy the brands are when Jaguar starts rolling out its own SUVs in a few years.
