Please see the car currently live on Bring a Trailer Auction:  1963 Jaguar XKE Series I Roadster for sale on BaT Auctions - ending January 27 (Lot #64,407) | Bring a Trailer

This 1963 Jaguar XKE is a Series I roadster that was acquired by the current owner in 2004 and subsequently refurbished by Lippincotts Garage of Sinking Springs, Pennsylvania, between early 2011 and August 2012. Work included repairing and refinishing the body in red, reupholstering the black leather interior, and rebuilding the 3.8-liter inline-six. Equipment includes a later XKE-sourced four-speed manual transmission, 15 chrome wire wheels, Koni shock absorbers, a black soft top, and a cassette stereo. This XKE roadster is now offered for sale with a tool kit, spare parts, records and photographs from the refurbishment, and a clean title.

During the refurbishment completed in 2012, the body was disassembled, stripped, and repainted in its current shade of Signal Red. The hood was replaced during the refurbishment, at which time corrosion on the body was patched and repaired. Features include a drivers door mirror, split chrome bumpers, headlight covers, a vented hood, and a black soft top with a matching boot cover.

Chrome-finished 15 Dayton wire wheels are secured with two-eared knockoffs and mounted with 205/70 Pirelli P4000 SuperTouring tires, which were installed during the refurbishment. A full-size spare and a tool kit, hammer, and jack are stored under the trunk floor, which was replaced during the refurbishment. Braking is handled by four-wheel discs with inboard rear rotors, and Koni shock absorbers have been fitted. The brake fluid was changed in December 2021.

The twin bucket seats have been reupholstered in black leather, which is complemented by a color-coordinated dashboard, door panels, and carpeting, the latter of which is protected by leaper-branded floor mats. Equipment includes a polished aluminum center stack and console, a wooden shift knob, lap belts, toggle switches, and a cassette stereo.

The replacement wood-rimmed steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer and a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset analog clock. Additional instrumentation in the center stack includes gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, fuel level, and amperage. The five-digit odometer shows 83k miles, fewer than 100 of which were added by the previous owner. The removed steering wheel is included in the sale.

The numbers-matching 3.8L inline-six was overhauled during the refurbishment performed by Lippincotts Garage of Sinking Springs, Pennsylvania. Additional service performed at that time included rebuilding the SU carburetors and distributor, replacing the spark plugs and wires, and installing a high-torque starter. Services performed in December 2021 include an oil and coolant change as well as synchronizing the carburetors.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a replacement four-speed manual transmission sourced from a later XKE 4.2 model. A replacement exhaust system was fitted during the refurbishment, and additional images of the underside are provided in the gallery.
