So you’re thinking about buying a Jaguar XKE. Perhaps it was the timeless lines, the power, speed and handling, or the prospect of owning a classic Jaguar that brought you to this conclusion. One thing is certain: you will not be disappointed by the Jaguar XKE’s near perfect aerodynamic body style, the timelessness of its beauty or the enjoyment you will find when driving any Jaguar XK-E or E-type Coupe or convertible. Like any classic car of its age, the Jaguar XKE requires maintenance and care, and a little babying here and there, but if given the opportunity, she will give you years of enjoyment.
When you’re look to buy classic Jaguar cars like the Jaguar XKE, there are a few things to remember. First and foremost, the E-Types are notorious for rusting. Rocker panels, the bottoms of the doors, points where the sub-frame attaches to the monocoque, around the rear hatch, and the spare-tire bay are all areas that are prone to rust and should be inspected thoroughly. While the most collectable are the early 3.8-liter Jaguar XKE convertibles, the Series I 4.2-liter two-seat coupe is a collectors bargain with prices found in the lower classic car price range. The most rare and coveted XKE cars are the Lightweights, of which only 10-14 were said to be built. Weighing nearly 500 pounds less than a production E-Type, Jaguar sold them to privateers for racing purposes.
