This 1962 Jaguar XKE project is a running Series I roadster that left the factory finished in Opalescent Bronze over a Tan interior. The car reportedly has been in the seller’s family since 1990 and resided in West Texas until recently being relocated to Fort Worth. Refurbishment work carried out between 1997 and 2000 is said to have included engine and transmission rebuilds and a partial exterior refinish. Recent work by the seller included a fuel-system overhaul, fitment of new ignition components, and installation of new front shocks.

The bucket seats have been re-trimmed in their original Tan color. The door panels, carpet, and trim are currently black and said to be in need of refurbishment. New aluminum trim accents for the dash and center console are included, and the shift boot and radio are absent.

A factory wood-rimmed steering wheel is retained and fronts Smiths instrumentation, which includes a 160-mph speedometer and a 6k-rpm tachometer. Just under 3k miles are shown on the five-digit odometer, approximately 100 of which were added by the seller and his family since 1990.

Power is from a replacement 3.8-liter inline-six that was reportedly sourced from a 1964 XKE and rebuilt in 2000. Shifting is through a four-speed manual transmission, and recent maintenance is said to have included an overhaul of the carburetors along with fitment of a new water pump, spark-plug wires, ignition coil, fuel lines, and fuel pump.
