The Jaguar E-Type was introduced to the public in 1961 and continued in Series I, II, and III variants until 1975, with Series I Jaguars remaining the most desirable and tastefully designed of the bunch. It was initially shown as a two-seater fixed head coupe and also as a two-seater convertible. The latter model became known as a roadster and was by far the most popular of Jaguar"s models at the time. Motoring enthusiasts instantly adored it for its sleek styling and outstanding performance. Series I E-Types are immediately recognizable for their covered headlamps, delicate two-piece bumpers, slender tail lamps, and a more streamlined, elegantly styled front end. The Series I XKE is renowned for being one of the most beautiful cars in the world, with performance to match its sleek, sporting design. This 1964 Jaguar XKE Roadster is a fantastic example of the platform. Coming from long-term ownership, the current owner purchased this XKE in 1967 and has lovingly maintained the car for the last 53 years. The car is finished in an attractive Opalescent Dark Blue over a black leather interior with a matching convertible top. It is a striking color combination that perfectly suits the elegant lines of the Series I bodywork. This numbers-matching car retains its original 3.8L inline-6, producing 265 hp and sending power through a 4-speed manual transmission. Mechanically, this XKE wants for nothing. Engine and transmission perform as designed, perfectly encapsulating the quintessential mid-century British motoring experience. It is a beautiful turn-key, driver-quality car ready to be enjoyed by its next owner, and has been treaded to significant recent service, including a brand new convertible top.
