THANK YOU. 1969 JAGUAR XKE COUPE Listed for sale by Coventry Garage LLC. is a 1969 JAGUAR XKE (E-Type) Coupe that is in absolutely wonderful condition. We are offering it for sale with the REDUCED "BUY IT NOW PRICE" OF $39. 50. 00. This car has only 43510 miles on it from new. (VIN# 1R 26127). This is a matching numbers car and has a very smooth shifting 4 speed manual transmission and 2 Stromberg carburetor 6 cylinder in line XK Jaguar engine. It is a dark blue exterior with brand new light gray leather seats. seat foams and seat diaphragms and new vinyl consol and arm rest. The entire cockpit has been insulated with closed cell padded aluminum foil insulation to reduce heat and sound insulate. The light blue carpets are new and not glued down so floors and insulation can be inspected. This car has 4 newer Dayton tubeless 6” wire wheels with brand new Kumho 205-70-15 tires. brand new gas tank. fuel pump and filter. This is a 2 DOOR SPORTS COUPE (not the 2+2 coupe) with a luggage area behind the front bucket seats. We have found NO RUST ON THIS CAR. The floors. doors. sills. trunk and bonnet are in great condition. We think that the floors and sills were re-done at some time and are in great condition. The previous owner had this car for approximately 20 years and here is some of the work he performed: repainted in 2005. chrome work 2005. new rubber gaskets-windows and doors. rebuilt head. recored radiator. GM alternator. new rotors and pads. new brake lines. new clutch assembly. new cooling hoses. new stainless exhaust system. new interior wiring harness and high capacity cooling fan on radiator. The previous owner told us that in 20 years he only put about 1500 miles on this car. All receipts from previous owner go with the car. IF YOU HAVE EVER WANTED TO OWN A BRITISH SPORTS CAR. this is the one to buy as the prices on all XKE'S keep on going up. This is a series 2 Jaguar E-Type fixed head coupe. This car runs great. starts quickly. shifts nicely and has a beautiful leather interior. The paint shines very well but has some imperfections- a few paint chips around the rear hatch. some scratches on the bulkhead. some water marks on the roof. and a few paint blend marks- none of which stand out. but they are there. The chrome wire wheels are in near perfect condition and most chrome has been re plated and looks great. The car is very presentable as it sits and a very nice “driver” condition car. The VIN# on this car is 1R 26127. We have just changed some of the radiator hoses and the antifreeze. changed the engine oil and oil filter and have installed the new gas tank and installed a new gasoline filter and take-up tube. The car runs very well. The car leaks some fluids as all British cars do. The car needs the brakes “loosened up”. The car sat for the past three years and the calipers tend to hang up- especially the rears. Our experience has been that the brake calipers loosen up and work better with driving. The entire rear end of this car was pulled out and detailed at some point- it is painted nicely and is very clean. The steering wheel is an aftermarket wooden steering wheel in nice condition. The radio housing and speakers come with the car but need installed. The rear luggage area has no luggage board runners and the rear hatch vinyl trim could be redone- we have extra gray vinyl that comes with the car. The dash cover is in nice condition; all glass is in very nice condition; the headliner is original- not sagging but never replaced. The visors need re-covered. All gauges work. all lights work and the car rides very well- and excellent daily driver XKE. The engine compartment could use some detail work- carb housings shined. metal work shined. valve covers brightened – nothing major- just being honest. We have tried to describe this car as accurately as possible; all the good and bad features have been addressed in this advertisement. If you come out to see this XKE we can put the car up on our lift for you so you can view the car from underneath.
