This 1967 Jaguar XKE is a Series I coupe that is said to have spent time in Colorado and Iowa prior to its acquisition in 2007 by the current owner, who commissioned a subsequent refurbishment. The car is finished in Opalescent Gunmetal Grey over red leather upholstery, and power is provided by a 4.2-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Features include an aftermarket AM/FM CD stereo, triple SU carburetors, glass headlight covers, four-wheel disc brakes with inboard-mounted rears, and chrome knock-off wire wheels. This XKE is being offered by the seller on behalf of the current owner with a tool kit, manufacturer’s literature, photos from the refurbishment, and a clean Missouri title in the name of the owner’s trust.
The car was stripped to bare metal and underwent repairs to the driver-side rear quarter panel prior to a repaint in its current shade of Opalescent Gunmetal Grey during the refurbishment. Exterior features include a louvered hood, glass headlight covers, and chrome bumpers with overriders. Paint cracks, rock chips, scratches, and an area of blistering are noted by the seller and can be seen up close in the gallery below.
Chrome 15” wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-off spinners and mounted with 185/70 Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. A full-size spare is found in the rear storage area. Braking is through four-wheel discs with inboard-mounted rears.
The cabin houses seats trimmed in red leather with matching door panels, carpets, and a black dashboard. Equipment includes lap belts for both occupants, Jaguar-branded black rubber floor mats, toggle switches for vehicle functions, and an aftermarket push-button AM/FM CD stereo with Bluetooth connectivity.
A wood-rimmed steering wheel sits ahead of Smiths instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset analog clock, and auxiliary gauges in the center stack. The five-digit odometer was reset to zero during the refurbishment and now shows approximately 10k miles. Total mileage is unknown.
The 4.2-liter inline-six is equipped with triple SU carburetors and was rated at 265 horsepower and 283 lb-ft of torque when new. A CoolCat electric fan has been installed. An oil change was performed in preparation for the sale.
The cylinder head stamping can be seen above, and a photo of the engine block stamping is provided in the gallery.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Additional underbody photos are viewable in the gallery below, along with images taken during various stages of the refurbishment.
