1968 Jaguar XKE Series 1½ Coupe
Chassis no. 1E 35763
At the very beginning of production of the Series II XKE in 1968, (generally referred as the “Series 1 ½”) Jaguar kept many of the cosmetic details of the wildly popular Series I model. Side marker lights, the size of the grille opening in the bonnet, the dashboard switches… all remained as they were on the later Series I cars. That makes the Series 1 ½ cars vastly more desirable than the slightly later Series II which changed all of those details to something most aficionados agree is less attractive.

This wonderful example of the Series 1 ½ coupe is an incredibly original car showing just 60,000 miles from new. It has the ultra rare and desirable factory option of air conditioning which blows ice cold. The engine was replaced in 1968, as records show, with a correct and proper series engine for the model, and it runs without fault. While repainted once in its life in the original Primrose Yellow, the body is original and completely rust free, the interior leather, carpets and door panels are all original and in superb condition.

This great original car has been extensively road tested, over many, many miles over the last few months and we can attest that it is a superb running car ready now for spirited summer touring.
