Designed by a noted aerodynamicist, Malcolm Sayer, the Jaguar XKE was designed to cheat the wind. From its long hood that curved slowly down to a small oval air intake to its glass headlights tucked neatly into the fenders, the Jaguar XKE was a huge sales success for the Jaguar brand. Released in 1961, the car quickly rose to be one of the most iconic British cars of the decade. In fact, Sports Car International Magazine has ranked the E-Type in the #1 spot on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960’s, while the Daily Telegraph ranks it on the list of the worlds 100 Most Beautiful Cars of all time. No matter what your reason for wanting to buy a 1962 Jaguar XKE, the Los Angeles classic car dealership professionals at The Beverly Hills Car Club look forward to providing you with a few Buyer’s Tips to make the process a bit easier.
If you’re looking to purchase a 1962 Jaguar XKE as an investment, originality should play a key role in your decision. Over the years, many XKE’s have been converted using alternative engines or perhaps a coupe or 2+2 was converted into a roadster. The long-term value of these autos will be less than that of a true original. Additionally, as these cars are decades old, many parts may be un-authentic aftermarket parts. You’ll want to ensure genuine Jaguar parts were used in any type of restoration if you are truly considering buying a Jaguar XKE as an investment. For those who are looking for a fun weekend car or an unfinished restoration project, this may not be much of a concern to you. Other items of consideration should be rust, as these cars are prone to rust, and any mechanical or electrical problems. As with any classic, having original documentation or owner history can also increase the value over time.
