1971 Jaguar E-Type 2+2 description
1971 Jaguar Coupe 2+2
XKE’s seem to be one of the most popular post-war foreign sports car collector items of the day.They have been appreciating at a very rapid pace and it is hard to find one that is reasonably priced.
The 1971 Jaguar XKE 2+2 V12 in this eBay ad is one of the few that is reasonably priced.It is a car that can be described as very nice street/touring condition.It is not a show car but has had much work done to it over the years to keep it in good running condition.The car was repainted in the late 1980s in the current “Carolina Blue” color and the interior was redone about this same time.
The odometer is reading 49,782 but there is no verification as to ascertain if this is original miles.The engine had a rebuild five years ago along with the original carburetor and a new aluminum radiator.Again, the car runs quite well and has good oil pressure and runs cool in the summer.Shifts as it should.The air conditioning needs works, the blower is quite noisy.It should be noted that the radio/cassette player is not original and may need some work.The new replacement clock comes with the car but has not been installed.The overall paint looks great but there are some imperfections as you might expect.In 2016 the suspension and the shocks were gone through.
This car should be considered a good entry car for somebody who wants to get into the XKE world and not have it cost a ton of money.After all, it is the V12 with a 3-speed automatic transmission with factory air (again, note that it does need some work) and good working electronics.No apparent rust and no apparent accidents.The V12 engine which is not a numbers matching engine is in excellent running condition in view of the fact that it was rebuilt within the last five years.If you are looking an XKE with plenty of room and plenty of power and draws a crowd every time you stop to get gas at a price/reserve that is unbelievable low – this could be the XKE that you have been looking for!
