This matching-numbers, unrestored 1971 Jaguar E-Type Series II XKE roadster, with its rare and beautiful color combination of Dark Blue over red leather interior, has 8,466 original miles (the mileage is documented with 19 pieces of documentation).
With a well-known history from new, this highly authentic car participated at the prestigious Forest Grove Concours d'Elegance 15 times from 1976 through 2001, bringing home a total of 18 awards with ribbons and plaques. Its 15 show display cards from the concours, as well as 15 entry packets with corresponding dated letters, envelopes and show books from the concours are included.
This unrestored survivor is still wearing its original Dunlop SP whitewall radial tires, original interior that still smells like new, many original tags, factory chalk marks, paint dabs, original spark plug wires, original Oregon license plates and dealership frames and many original components throughout. This XKE roadster is optioned as listed on the original Window Sticker with a base cost of $5,803 and optional accessories, including chrome wire wheels for $165, whitewall tires for $36, radio for $230, and delivery, prep and handling for $125, leaving a total suggested retail price of $6,359.
It is powered by its original matching-numbers 4.2-liter 6-cylinder engine mated to its matching-numbers 4-speed manual transmission, and also has its original AM-SW-FM Phillips radio, telescopic steering column and 4-wheel disc brakes.
