1970 Jaguar XKE Series II Roadster 4-Speed
This 1970 Jaguar XKE is a Series II roadster that was produced in March 1970 and is finished in Willow Green over a Suede Green interior. Power comes from a 4.2-liter inline-six mated to a four-speed manual gearbox, and equipment includes a black soft top, dual Stromberg carburetors, and chrome wire wheels. A top-end rebuild and overhauls of the carburetors were conducted under prior ownership, while the servicing of the fuel, cooling, and suspension systems were conducted in preparation for the sale. Award recognition includes multiple JCNA best-in-class awards.
The body was partially refinished in its factory color of Willow Green during prior ownership and is paired with a black soft top. Additional features include exposed headlights, chrome-finished bumpers with guards, and tail lights positioned below the bumpers. Imperfections are noted in the chrome bumpers, over-riders, and soft top.
Chrome-finished 15” wire wheels are secured with two-eared knock-offs and wear 205/70 Michelin Defender tires installed in 2018. A matching spare wheel fitted with a Michelin redline tire is stored in the rear compartment, and braking is managed by four-wheel discs.
Cabin finishes include Suede Green upholstery accompanied by matching door panels and carpeting as well as a black dashboard. A functioning Panasonic radio is linked to speakers fitted within the center stack, and lap belts are provided for both occupants.
The 4.2-liter XK inline-six is equipped with a pair of rebuilt Stromberg carburetors and received a top-end rebuild under prior ownership. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox. Work completed in preparation for the sale included servicing of fuel tank, carburetors, and alternator wiring as well as replacement of the coolant hoses, steering rack mounts and bellows, and front suspension bushings.
All Scheduled Maintenance.
Very clean interior.
