This 1965 Jaguar XKE is a Series I coupe that was refurbished in 2019 and acquired by the selling dealer in October 2022. Work performed during the refurbishment reportedly involved refinishing the body in black, installing replacement black leather upholstery, and overhauls of the engine, transmission, rear axle, brakes, and wiring. The car is powered by a 4.2-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and additional equipment includes 15″ wire wheels, chrome-finished bumpers, triple SU carburetors, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. Maintenance carried out in preparation for the sale is said to have included changing the oil and replacing the tires. This XKE is offered by the selling dealer in New York with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, service records, refurbishment photos, a tool kit, and a clean Arizona title.

A refurbishment carried out in 2019 by David Ferguson of Images Auto Body in Campbell, California, involved stripping the body, repairing the left-front subframe, installing a replacement steel bonnet, and refinishing the car in black. Exterior details include chrome-finished bumpers and trim, recessed headlamps with clear covers, a vented hood, a side-opening rear hatch, and central dual exhaust outlets.

Chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels feature two-eared knock-offs and wear BFGoodrich whitewall tires that were reportedly installed by the selling dealer. Work performed under previous ownership is said to have included overhauls of the four-wheel disc brakes and rear axle.

Replacement interior components from BAS Heritage of Palm Springs, California, include low-back bucket seats upholstered in black leather along with color-coordinated door panels and carpets. Equipment includes a heater, chrome-finished handles, an array of toggle switches for vehicle functions, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel.

A mix of Smiths and Lucas instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset clock, and gauges for water temperature, oil pressure, fuel level, and amperage. The five-digit odometer displays approximately 49k miles.

The 4.2-liter inline-six is equipped with triple SU carburetors and sends power to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission, both of which were reportedly overhauled by Richard Jenkins in 2019. The wiring is said to have also been refurbished.
