1963 Jaguar E-Type Coupe

Classics  /   /  By Jim Pickering  /  By Jim Pickering

Jaguar’s XKE was groundbreaking in the world of sports cars. It featured flowing lines, a stout monocoque frame, a triple-SU inline six engine, and four-wheel independent suspension for a base price of around $6,000—hardly inexpensive in its day, but a bargain for the performance it provided.

This ’63 XKE coupe (or E-Type, as they were called overseas) is described by the seller as an original California car that has just under 53k miles from new. It’s said to have resided with its last owner for nearly 30 years, and although it has been repainted a brighter shade of gold than its original Opalescent Silver Sand, it still has a great overall look. The seller says it’s rust and accident-free, is in good mechanical shape, and has been fitted with an all-synchro 4.2 gearbox, which he says is much easier to live with than the original 3.8 unit.

XKEs will always have a devoted following, and low-mile cars are getting harder and harder to come by. If you’re in the market, take a close look at this one.
