1962 Jaguar XKE Series I Roadster, a MATCHING NUMBERS CAR, was completed in February 1962 and acquired by the former owner in 1980. A refurbishment in 1987 included rebuilding the 3.8-liter inline-six, four-speed manual transmission, and drivetrain components as well as repainting the car in blue and re-trimming the dark blue leather interior. Equipment includes triple SU carburetors, rack-and-pinion steering, a limited-slip differential, four-wheel disc brakes, a blue soft top, and 15″ wire wheels. Service in 2022 included overhauling the fuel system and replacing the steering column bushing and battery. This XKE is now offered by the seller with service records, manufacturer’s literature, a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, and a tool kit, and a clean South Carolina title.
The car left the factory finished in black and was repainted its current shade of Opalescent blue in 1987. Details include a blue soft top, a louvered clamshell hood, covered headlights, dual center-exit exhaust outlets, and wrap-around chrome bumpers with over riders and front and rear grille guards. Paint chips are shown in the gallery below.
Chrome-finished 15″ knock-off wire wheels are mounted with 195/75 Michelin XA4 Radial X tires. Braking is handled by servo-assisted four-wheel discs. The steering column bushing was replaced in November 2022.
The cockpit features bucket seats that were retrimmed in blue leather during the refurbishment along with the dashboard, door panels, and shift boot. Appointments include color-coordinated carpeting, an aluminum-trimmed center stack and console, an open glovebox, and lap belts.
The wood-rimmed steering wheel frames Smiths instrumentation including a 160-mph speedometer and a 6k-rpm tachometer, both of which were repaired in 1989. The clock needs repaired. Auxiliary gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel level, and amperage are mounted in the center stack. The five-digit odometer shows 11k miles. True mileage is unknown.
