1972 Jaguar XKE Coupe: SOLD

Two important words to introduce you to our 1972 E-Type Coupe:  One Owner.

This Sable Brown 2+2 Coupe brought us to California in search of this near-perfect example of one of Jaguar’s most iconic designs.  Sold to a Dr.who not only loved his Coupe, but did everything right for the next owner by keeping all the ORIGINAL documents including the VIN card and Window Sticker!  Finished in Sable Bown over Cinnamon and outfitted with Automatic Transmission ($269), Air Conditioning ($521), Tinted Glass ($90), Radial-Ply Dunlop Whitewalls ($45), AM/FM Radio Stereo ($235) and Front Bumper Guard ($34), this V12 Coupe was fully loaded in 1972 for $9,301.

Introduced in 1971, the Series 3 E-Type paved the way with an all new V12 .  This incredible powerplant allowed the Jaguar to leap to 60 miles per hour in under 7 seconds – in 1971! Offered primarily with the V12 engine and an Extended Wheelbase, the Series 3 E-Types came as either a Roadster or 2+2 Coupe.

All original ,with the exception of a CD Player installed, this is like traveling back in time to an era when design and driving intersected.  New for the Series 3, the 5.3 litre V12 Engine with 4 Zenith carburetors was originally developed to race in the LeMans series.  Our V12 Coupe starts up without fuss and purrs at idle before growling under full throttle.  All systems work as they should, and the Extended Wheelbase of the V12 body allows for more room throughout the cabin, including the 2 rear seats.  It’s not all just looks with this one, as it still pulls very strong and is equally at ease cutting apexes in back roads as cruising along at highway speeds thanks to the stretched proportions of the V12 body.

Stop looking.  Get this one before you miss out and spend the next decade comparing all others to this one ‘that got away’ that didn’t need anything at all, and came with full documentation.  Trust us – we went to California to get this one!
