1969 JAGUAR XKE E-TYPE COUPE (not a 2+2 coupe)
Listed for sale by Coventry Garage LLC is a numbers matching, 1969 JAGUAR E-TYPE or XKE COUPE with its original engine and drive train THAT IS IN BEAUTIFUL RUSTFREE CONDITION. This car just had a new (stripped to bare metal) paint job in the original Willow Green color. We are asking a very reasonable $41,000.00 for this car. This car has only 74900 miles on it and the VIN# is 1R26410.
This car has a brand new clutch and slave cylinder, oil and filter change, 5 new Bridgestone 205 X 15” tires, four new rear springs, 6 KONI shocks, new stainless steel exhaust, new rubber gaskets, new clutch bottles, new clutch hoses, new bottles and brake sending units, new brake flex hoses, radiator professionally flushed and pressure tested, new Otter switch on radiator to turn rad fans on, engine compartment detailed, engine tuned with Pertronix ignition and much more. The black leather interior is in very nice condition but is not new; the seats have been re-done in black leather as original, nice door panels, new carpets, no cracks in dash, just refinished console/arm rest that looks great and its original steering wheel in nice condition. The underside of the car is in near perfect condition with new floors and rocker panels welded in- no holes, no soft spots, very good definition on all metal surfaces- no rust issues underneath at all.
The body is in VERY nice condition- we have found no rust in the fenders, sills, doors, bonnet or trunk- NO RUST FOUND! NO EVIDENCE OF ANY ACCIDENTS EITHER. We have many more photos of the floors and trunk that we can send to you. We just had the car re-painted; our body man said that this is one of the best, most rust free British cars that he has ever worked on! He stripped the car to bare metal, primed, painted, and clear coated the car. IT LOOKS GREAT! This car is finished to a very nice driver quality standard.
Mechanically the car runs great; shifts easily, starts quickly, brakes nicely. The car only shows 74900 miles on the working odometer. The chrome is in nice condition but shows some scratches on the flat surfaces. The 5 chrome wire wheels are in nice condition but are original to the car and are not perfect. The car is missing one right rear tail light chrome clamshell finisher. The radio and its surround are missing and NOT with the car. The headliner is in nice original condition and not falling down but shows some wear. The dash has no cracks. The steering wheel has been recoated in polyurethane. The lights and gauges all work. This car has a brand new spare tire and original matching wire wheel and a car cover. No jack or tool kit. The exhaust manifolds have been JETCOATED.
The VIN# is1R26410 and you can see more history and photos on the "XKE DATA" website. We included many photos of the restoration process so you can see how far we went with the 20 month restoration process. We made this car a "driver" not a Concours trailer queen.

After first driving the 2014 Jaguar F-Type in Spain this spring, we came away mighty impressed. Of course, if you had to pin us down for a top three wish list of what improvements we'd like to see, we'd probably hit you with something like: 1) Less weight. 2) Less weight and 3) Less weight. Oh, and if we're feeling presumptuous, maybe some additional transmission choices.
Despite leveraging aluminum for the body and chassis, this Jaguar is still a bit of a fat cat compared to its rival models from Porsche. We never felt like it was lacking for power in any of its three supercharged trims, least of them the 495-horsepower V8 S, which is a genuine madman. We knew the variants would come, though - a quick look at the rest of Jag's lineup provides all the evidence you need of that. And so we're not surprised to see word of a hyper-powered F-Type on the horizon, an R-S version. What is surprising, however, is a new report that put its motivation at over 700 horsepower and its top speed at 200+ mph. Us? We're just hoping the latter figure comes at least partially as a result of a hardcore diet.
This F-Type R-S news comes according to the rumormongers at AutoExpress, who expect the high-power Brit to come in coupe form, at least initially. We still haven't seen the debut of the fixed-head F, but plenty of spy shots suggest its arrival is imminent. Wildly, AE posits that Jag won't look for more displacement to gain power, it will instead radically downsize by using a 1.6-liter turbo- and supercharged four-cylinder and an array of electric motors. If that sounds familiar, that's because AE suggests the high-tech powertrain will be scavenged from the defunct C-X75 supercar program (interestingly, earlier reports suggested this combination would only deliver about 500 horsepower).
Every automaker has its own agenda when it comes to concept cars. Some roll them out just to showcase where it's heading. Others create them to gauge public opinion for a potential production model. Still others only showcase a concept car to preview a model that's already well underway. Jaguar is just such a company.
In the last several years, Coventry has only produced a handful of concept cars, and each of them - the C-X16 that foreshadowed the F-Type, the C-X17 that previews the upcoming crossover and Project 7 that is now entering limited production - has led straight to the introduction of a new, commercially available model. Except for one: the C-X75.
The extreme lightweight supercar was set to succeed the XJ220 with a number of advanced technologies, but unfortunately Jaguar ended up pulling the plug to watch from the sidelines as McLaren, Ferrari and Porsche got all the attention for their new hybrid hypercars. But that doesn't mean that some of the technologies initially developed for the C-X75 won't find their way into other Jaguar products.
Oh look, another super-hot wagon that won't be making its way to the US. Awesome.
Actually, in all honesty, it really is awesome. Meet the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, a red-hot (or blue-hot?) version of the rakish XF wagon that originally bowed at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012. The formula here is pretty much plug-and-play: take the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 from the XFR-S and shove it in the wagon body, and add all of the necessary visual flair fitting of a properly powerful Jag. The end result is an estate that packs 542 horsepower, 502 pound-feet of torque, and the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour in a scant 4.6 seconds. Meow.
This Jaguar joins a growing segment of ultra-hot wagons in Europe, rounded out by offerings like the Audi RS6 Avant and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG longroof - the latter of which you can actually buy in North America. Sounds like the sort of comparison test we'd love to facilitate. Guess we'll have to leave that to our friends at Autocar, though.
