The 1970 model-year would be the last in which Series II Jaguar XKE models would be sold in significant quantity. From the front, the Series II models could be recognized by a larger grille opening and repositioned front turn signals. Brakes were also upgraded, radial tires became standard, and interior toggle switches were changed to rocker switches for safety. The 1970 Jaguar XKE Convertible would run alongside both a Fixed Head Coupe and a Fixed Head Coupe 2+2 model. During this time, air conditioning and power steering would also become available options, while a larger wrap-around bumper could be found in the rear. In total, it is estimated that 3,477 of the 1970 Jaguar XKE Convertible models were produced, while 1,937 Coupes and 1,433 2+2 Coupes were produced during the same time.
If you’re looking to buy a 1970 Jaguar XKE Convertible, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be happy to share a few Buyer’s Tips with you. First and foremost, rust can be a problem for these classic Jaguars. Always be sure to thoroughly check for rust damage along problem areas such as floor panels, under the battery and along the fenders and doorsills. The team at The Beverly Hills Car Club always recommends having a third party inspection to ensure that you are fully aware of the condition of any potential purchase, including rust. Next, particularly for the Convertible model, you’ll want to inspect the condition of the soft top as well as the mechanics that assist the top in raising and lowering. While there are many companies that can help you restore or replace the canvas top, it can be expensive. You should take this expense into account. As with all classic cars, be sure to ask to see any documentation regarding ownership history, maintenance and/or restoration. These documents can give you clues into the car’s history.
