Car description

1970 Jaguar XKE E Type Series 2 OTS One Owner Original Paint Cotswold Blue

I am pleased to offer this very original 1970 Jaguar XKE E Type OTS. The car is an beautiful time capsule back to 1970 with original paint, original interior etc. and just 28,979 +/- original miles. It is technically a one owner car since the current owner (second) has an open title in the original owner’s name. The original owner owned the car for 47 years and the current owner purchased the car in January of 2017.

It has the original Cotswold blue paint w/ Navy blue leather interior, Navy blue carpeting, and a black convertible top. It came from Lafayette, IN and spent its 47 winters in a heated warehouse.

Scratch touched up at front top of bonnet

Paint buffed down to primer on gas tank door

Several minor parking lot door dings – all candidates for paintless dent removal

Chrome Wire Wheels: look perfect

Chrome trim– all excellent

Chrome bumpers: rear bumper has a little dent right in the middle but chrome is good, front bumper very slightly bent but has 10” long area around center medallion where chrome has peeled from being bent – medallion ok – all 4 side chrome bumper pieces good

Tires: new looking Goodyear GT Radials – 185/70HR15

Rubber trim: front bumper and windshield trim OK, rear bumper trim marginal at center of boot lid -side window trim needs to be replaced

Glass: all good, window cranks work

Exhaust: quiet, chrome rear pipes excellent

Hand brake works fine

More Notes (from the owner): The body is in good condition except for “parking lot dings” that can easily be removed by paintless dent repair. The panel under the front bumper has a “divot” and there is also a scratch, not dent, on the front bonnet and one on the RF fender. Chrome is excellent except for the middle section of the front bumper which is dented and the center section of the rear bumper which has one tiny ding (both bumpers are in 3 sections). Seats show normal age cracks but are not torn. I just spent over $3000 having the brakes re-done with a new master cylinder, brake servo cylinder, hoses, the system flushed and the brake fluid replaced w/ Castrol Silicone DOT 4 fluid. I also had the carbs rebuilt and a new fuel pump, temperature sending unit, spark plugs, and air filter installed.
