1967 Jaguar XKE SI 4.2 Roadster
Lot # S160 1967 Jaguar XKE SI 4.2 Roadster; S/N 1E15251; Opalescent Silver Blue/Dark Blue leather; Dark Blue top; Estimate $225,000 – $260,000; Recent restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $220,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $242,000. With Reserve. – Centerlock wire wheels, woodrim steering wheel, Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. – Small repaired scratches in the paint aft of the bonnet on the passenger’s side. Paint is otherwise gorgeous. A few light scratches in the chrome. The windshield is just starting to delaminate in the left front. Top is well fitted. Driver’s seat is lightly wrinkled. Gauges are clear and bright and the steering wheel looks new. Engine bay is clean. Recently restored by Classic Showcase, just 100 miles ago. – Sold at RM Monterey last year for $198,000. Classic Showcase, who restored this XKE, does an exceptional job and has brought some value curve-bending results. The SI 4.2 XKE market has been on a roll recently as shown by this transaction which is a supply-side quandary: there is no shortage of SI 4.2 XKEs and it’s surprising that attracted by prices like this they haven’t flooded the market. There is an overhang of supply that threatens to engulf demand.

1993 Jaguar XJ 220 Coupe
Lot # S674 1993 Jaguar XJ 220 Coupe; S/N SAJJEAEX8AX220667; Maroon/Tan leather; Unrestored original, 2+ condition; Hammered Sold at $420,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $462,000. With Reserve. – Bridgestone Expedia tires, Alpine radio and cassette player, power windows, air conditioning, fire extinguisher. – Canadian delivery car. An 871-km example with unblemished original paint, immaculate mechanicals and unused interior. A wonderfully preserved example in a striking color combination. – Yes, it’s 871 km from new and impeccably maintained. This is still the most expensive XJ 220 in history and not by a small margin, either. It is $77,000 more than RM got for s/n 0619 (albeit with 6,880 km) in Arizona in January. That’s a lot to pay for low miles bragging rights.

1966 Jaguar E-Type SI 4.2 Roadster
Lot # 12 1966 Jaguar XKE SI 4.2 Roadster; S/N 1E13101; Engine # 7E9162-9; Dark Blue/Biscuit leather; Tan top; Estimate $200,000 – $250,000; Older restoration, 2+ condition; Hammered Sold at $230,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $253,000. With Reserve. – Chrome centerlock wire wheels, Dunlop SP Sport tires, woodrim steering wheel, Blaupunkt pushbutton radio. – Very good paint, chrome and interior. Gorgeous, detailed and restored underneath. Looks like a new car. Really nothing to pick on, even though it was restored over 10 years ago. – Sold at RM Monterey in 2003 just after restoration for $101,200 when its odometer (now at 2,995) showed only 327 miles. The quality of this car’s restoration trumps its age, and it won’t need anything for some time. The result here was right on the money in today’s E-Type market and the seller got a handsome return for 13 years of ownership and even enjoyed it to the tune of 2,600 miles..
1954 Jaguar XK 120M Roadster
Lot # 46 1954 Jaguar XK 120M Roadster; S/N S674322; Engine # F1093-8S; Red/Black leather; Black cloth top; Estimate $140,000 – $180,000; Older restoration, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $110,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $121,000. No Reserve. – 3442/210hp, 5-speed, chrome centerlock wire wheels, Dunlop Racing tires, black cloth tonneau cover, Wilwood disc brakes up front, stock drums in rear. Represented with upgraded brakes, transmission and starter. – Represented as matching numbers engine. Originally green. Good chrome. Good older paint. Long crack behind the left edge of the hood. Same on the other side. Microblisters on the front left edge of the hood. Uneven door gaps. Trunk sticks out a little bit at the bottom. Exhaust tips are painted black. Very good cleaned up wheels. Very good, lightly worn interior. Used but tidy underneath. Restored in the 1990s. Given the upgrades and the older restored condition, this is absolutely a driver rather than a collectible. – An attractive and very usable XK 120, particularly with the M engine and 5-speed that make it especially attractive for tours. It’s especially attractive at this price with its discount for non-originality. An astute purchase.
1962 Jaguar XKE SI Roadster
Lot # 104 1962 Jaguar XKE SI Roadster; S/N 876479; Engine # R3444-9; Black, , Black hardtop/Red leather; Black vinyl top; Estimate $250,000 – $325,000; Older restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $180,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $198,000. With Reserve. – Chrome centerlock wire wheels, Firestone tires, both tops, woodrim steering wheel, ‘chrome-like’ polished stainless steel exhaust. – An early flat floor, welded louver car restored in its original colors. Chrome is older. Paint is very good and probably show quality at one point but no longer. Excellent interior. Excellent underneath. Even gaps and fits that align without a break across the car. A concours restoration showing a little age but still exceptional. – The only thing missing from the ultimate XKE presentation are the outside bonnet latches of the very earliest cars. This one retains the constricted flat footwells and uncomfortable seats that can be endured on trips of less than 50 miles. A stratum of collectors think these are desirable; drivers think of them as detriments. The result here was an appropriate one, although on a 200 mile drive it might seem excessive.

A sound and presentable older restoration with plenty of subsequent use. – This Jag is represented to have been with its present owner since 1996, but is shown as being sold by Bonhams at the Goodwood Revival in 2001 for $74,105 (GBP 38,900). That was a reasonable price then; this is a reasonable price now.
1967 Jaguar XKE SI 4.2 2 + 2
Lot # 224 1967 Jaguar XKE SI 4.2 2 + 2; S/N 1E76006; Engine # 7E1231-9; Silver-Grey/Black leather; Estimate $65,000 – $75,000; Visually maintained, largely original, 3 condition; Hammered Sold at $57,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $62,700.

Original underbody; tires last replaced in 1968. A pretty used car. – Exceptionally well maintained and fully documented from new with invoices, warranty card, manuals, invoices and correspondence. Cars like this don’t come up very often, particularly desirable ones like a Series 1 4.2 E-type, and the new owner was both astute and fortunate to acquire it for this price, a sound value even if the top is fixed over room enough for four.
1950 Jaguar XK 120 Roadster Competition
Lot # 235 1950 Jaguar XK 120 Roadster Competition; S/N 660214; White/Brown leather; Estimate $60,000 – $90,000; Competition car, original as-raced, 3- condition; Hammered Sold at $75,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $82,500.

Aged instrument panel. – Sold at Bonhams Quail Lodge sale in 2005 for $46,000, then at Quail in 2010 for an undisclosed price before the recent competition preparation. This Jag has great potential as a vintage racer, continuing the career that began in Australia in the 50’s, and isn’t expensive at this price.

  1. These old Jags are beautiful cars, especially when restored and maintained by those who can afford them. My experience with Jag ownership was short and bittersweet. In 1976 I bought a ’67 XKE, yellow, with only 42K miles showing on the gauges. I discovered quickly the cost of driving a beast with way too many moving parts heating up the 9 quarts or so motor oil during the south Florida summer. I became very poor very quickly, but did enjoy some great driving moments in my Jag. The best was letting a Brit flyboy off the Ark Royal have a drive during Fort Lauderdale’s bicentennial celebration and blasting through the Kinney tunnel, top down and well lubricated, before the overheating 4.2 required a lengthy stoppage and visit to Norman of England to add another cooling fan. My Jag had three! Unfortunately, I had to get rid of the Jag because it clearly was not designed for urban use in the Tropics. It was not until 2007 did I find the car the old Jag should have been- a Honda S2000, the best affordable sports car ever built.
