Car description

1972 Jaguar XKE V12 RoadsterSeries III

It has been said many times before but it is in my opinion always worth repeating that Enzo Ferrari who made some of the most beautiful cars ever, when he saw the first XKE he called it the most beautiful car ever made.Certainly the XKE run produced some of the most interesting cars for today’s collectors.

The 1972 Jaguar XKE in this listing is the last of the series of XKEs and with the V12 engine and its extra long wheel base it not only retains all the beauty of the XKE but makes it a much better driver for comfort and touring.It is of course equipped with the 5.3 litre aluminum V12 engine that is as responsive as when the car was born.The power steering and power disc brakes make this a pleasure to drive in heavy traffic.The V12 makes it a delight to travel on the open road at cruising speeds (well over any speed limits).

Purchased the car in 1991

The seats have been recovered with black Connolly leather.

The wire wheels are attached to Michelin radial tires inflated to 35 psi.Comes with a full-size wire spoke spare wheel.

The radiator has been upgraded to a high-volume alloy radiator.

In 2007 the car was stripped and repainted in white.

The black convertible top is canvas.

For safe, the fuel tank has been pressure tested and a new fuel pump was installed in 2012.

Important to note the transmission has been upgraded to a TDM American Powertrain E-Type conversion 5-speed manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch.For those that know, this conversion makes the car more responsive and more fun to drive.

This car has a separate oil cooler.

No air conditioning.

Many, manymore photos, don't hesitate to ask for more photos.

While this car is not a show car it has always been highly maintained and has not seen rust and is an excellent driver.

The reserve is low (please don’t ask).

XKE’s should always be viewed as a thing of beauty and great driving pleasure.It is true that most people would agree that the two fastest appreciating collector sports cars are Porsche and all the XKE roadsters and coupes.
