As part of Jaguar's continuous development and improvement of the XKE, the Series II, which Jaguar introduced in late 1968, incorporated a number of changes; many of them needed to meet new U.S. safety regulations, and included a larger oval air intake and more robust bumpers and more prominent marker lights. The 4.2 liter engine and full synchromesh 4-speed transmission introduced in 1964 in the Series I had proved themselves entirely satisfactory, particularly to U.S. customers, and continued. This 1969 XKE Series II Roadster was bought in January 1972 by a Ford Motor Company engineer who owned it until just a few months ago. Its maintenance and continuous care reflects both his high standards and the satisfaction which he derived from his E-type. It was fully restored by its long term owner five years ago and may be the best running/driving XKE we've ever had, a fabulous automobile. A 4-speed car, it is finished in silver with tan leather, matching carpet and a black top and is fitted with chrome wire wheels, black wall tires and an aftermarket stereo. Its restoration is honest and professionally done to high standards of fit and finish, but most significantly its mechanical condition, setup and preparation are peerless. This is an XKE that the most demanding driver can own and enjoy, and feel confident and proud being seen at its wheel, an exceptional automobile.
