The 1974 Jaguar XKE Convertible and Fixed Head Coupe 2+2 models would be the last of Series III production, effectively ending the thirteen-year production history of the Jaguar XKE. Boasting Jaguar’s most powerful engine, a 5.3L V12 with four Zenith carburetors, the 1974 Jaguar XKE would see approximately 2,862 XKE Convertibles roll off the production floor. Interestingly, another 50 XKE Convertibles were made in 1975, of which all were black and featured a special plaque on the glove box door. The last Jaguar XKE built was chassis number IS 2872, which is owned by Jaguar today. If you’re thinking about buying a 1974 Jaguar XKE Convertible, always be sure to have a third party inspection performed to ensure you know as much about the car as possible. You may also want to ask the seller for any documentation they have regarding ownership history, maintenance and repair, and restoration, as these records can give you great insight into the history of the classic.
While the end of production for the Jaguar XKE was primarily due to new competition in the market and the oil-crunch of the early 1970s, over 72,000 XKE models had been produced and Jaguar had permanently left its mark on the automotive world. One of the most recognized sports cars ever manufactured, the classic Jaguar XKE continues to be highly desired among collectors and Jaguar enthusiasts alike.
