Absolutely stunning numbers matching 1966 Jaguar XKE Series 1, 2+2 Automatic for sale. Same family since purchased from it's original San Francisco owner in 1975 with only 54k miles at the time. It's new owner drove it sparingly on the weekends until 1982 and put into storage with only around 55k miles on the car. Six years later he removed from storage and began to once again use from time to time, clocking only a few hundred miles over the next two decades. In late 2009 after retiring, he finally had the time to restore his beloved Jaguar.

The car was completely disassembled, professionally prepped and painted in basecoat/clearcoat then color sanded and polished to perfection. All exterior chrome was re-plated (including the glass frames) and all rubber was replaced along with new lenses and windscreen. As the photos show below, the paint is so much nicer than the finish Jaguar provided from the factory.

During this process the seating was sent out for rebuilding and treated to brand new, high quality leather hides. The engine compartment was tidied up, new suspension components installed, new stainless exhaust system, rebuilt heater system. Just few hundred miles before the transmission was rebuilt. Needless to say, the car starts at the first push of the button and purrs beautifully. The handling is as tight as the day it was new along with responsive braking and perfect shifting. During the last photo session I did it was 94 degrees outside and with the car running over an hour it never went above 195f. Over $44,000 was spent just on the cosmetic part of this restoration.

This beautiful Jaguar is several cuts above the others of it's type out there. Be sure to take a look at the photos during the restoration in the slideshow along with the other 250+ photos provided. There are also videos available to see and hear her run.

Thank you for visiting!
