The Series II XKE E-Type Jaguar was only built between the years 1969-71 and there were only 4,855 of these highly desirable FHC (Fixed Head Coupes) built, they are therefore far rarer than the 8,628 OTS (Open Two Seaters) built or the 5,326 Longer Wheel Base (9") and far less desirable 2+2 coupes. It is noteworthy that in the final Series III incarnation of the model there were no FHC built at all but some 7,990 OTS and 7,297 2+2's. Therefore the Series II FHC Coupes are some of the rarest and most collectible E-Type Jaguars available of this legendary marque.
This is therefore an extremely rare opportunity to own a very rare all original surviving example of an original southern California family owned all stock unmodified 1969 Jaguar XKE Series II 4.2L 2 seater coupe (not 2+2) with factory working air conditioning in exceptionally fine condition throughout being offered as a wonderful opportunity for the serious Jaguar collector or indeed for any British classic car lover!
