DETAILS & STORY
Why buy one car when you can buy the whole collection? This 1964 XKE was one of the first purchases our friend, Tom bought when he decided to build a car collection. Tom had no experience as a collector, but he’d had 30 plus years in the high end furniture business which taught him about details.
Every car in Tom collection is all about the details and this XKE is no exception.
Our 1964 3.8 Roadster featured here is one exception and has been maticulaly restored. When we purchased the Jaguar and drove her up the street it became readily apparent the car was rarely driven and never properly sorted.
The crew at Road Scholars went to work and have spent way too many hours making sure she is a joy to drive. The 3.8 liter starts effortlessly and revs smoothly through out the RPM range making this a a true performer in its day with 0-60 times at 6.5 seconds obtainible. Every nut and bolt in the engine compartment is meticulously refiished and detailed, truly a work of art. The paint and bright work on the car was very good so it only needed a little love from Jason to really make her shine.
The interior and top were recovered and needed nothing. The sorting and adjusting and polishing took alot of time and the final product was well worth it, a show ready XKE that you can drive anywhere.
