The online auctions ends May 7th.

A remarkable 1968 Jaguar XKE Series 1.5 Coupe, extensively modified and restored, is set to turn heads at an upcoming specialty auto auction. This unique vehicle, which blends classic elegance with modern enhancements, has undergone a comprehensive transformation that includes styling cues from the E-Type Lightweight cars famed for their Le Mans appearances in the 1960s. The car now sports an opalescent blue finish, complemented by an RS Panels wide rear fender kit and Le Mans-style sill end extensions, making it a standout piece for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

During its meticulous restoration, which spanned from the late 2010s to 2020, the vehicle was stripped to bare metal, refinished, and outfitted with modern performance upgrades. These include GAZ adjustable shocks, electric power steering, and 15-inch Dunlop-style wheels, ensuring that the car’s performance is as striking as its appearance.

The interior has not been overlooked, featuring GTS Classics fixed-back bucket seats, Crow multi-point harnesses, and a Retro-Air air conditioning system for a blend of comfort and vintage style. Powered by a robust 4.2-liter inline-six engine, equipped with triple Weber carburetors, this Jaguar promises exhilarating performance. The selling dealer, offering the car with a clean Arizona title, confirms the car's excellent driving condition and show-quality presentation. This 1968 Jaguar XKE is more than just a car; it's a testament to the enduring allure of blending classic design with contemporary performance enhancements.
