1961 Jaguar XKE Convertible

One of the most iconic symbols of the glory days of British racing, the Jaguar XKE would become the automaker’s most iconic and recognizable car. Debuted in 1961, the 1961 Jaguar XKE Convertible married exceptional styling with unparalleled performance and affordable pricing. It was the product of more than five-years of development and owed much of its technology to the Jaguar racecars of the era, particularly the D-Type that was being made in Coventry at the time. Boasting monococque construction and an independent rear suspension, a style of construction that would be seen in Jaguars until the mid-1990s, the Jaguar XKE was an instant success. Available as both a Convertible or Roadster and as a Fixed Head Coupe, many of today’s Jaguar collectors and enthusiasts would love to own a 1961 Jaguar XKE Convertible for its open-air driving experience.


1961 Jaguar XKE Convertible Seller’s Guide

Because of the open-air experience of the 1961 Jaguar XKE Convertible, many of these models feature interiors that have seen better days, thanks to their exposure to the elements. Leather and wood trim can often fade and wear out quicker on these models. If you’re looking to sell a 1961 Jaguar XKE Convertible, be sure to give buyers a fair assessment of the overall condition of the car, particular these areas that are susceptible to more damage. Additionally, rust plays a large role in these classic Jaguars, so be sure to provide buyers with documentation regarding any areas of concern or areas where there may have been previous rust repair. As with any classic car, be sure to reflect the overall condition of the car in your asking price. Based in Los Angeles, but with partners across the country, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to learn more about your classic.
