A product of more than five years of development, and one which owed much of its styling and performance to the racing Jaguars of the time, the 1961 Jaguar XKE launched into the automotive scene at the Geneva Motor Show. At the time, even Enzo Ferrari referred to the car as “the most beautiful car ever made.” Using a monococque construction and at the rear, an independent suspension that was a separate unit in a sub frame, this type of construction would go on to be used well into the mid-1990’s on Jaguars of all types. The 1961 XKE was offered as a two-seater Roadster and a two-seater Fixed Head Coupe. Whether you’re the original owner of a 1961 Jaguar, have a restoration project you simply don’t have the time to finish, or are looking to sell several cars from your collection to make room for new classics, the team at is here to assist you in selling your auto – no matter what the condition, location, or model. Below they’ve provided a few Seller’s Tips that will help you prepare for the sale.


1961 Jaguar XKE Seller’s Guide

Because the XKE body is partially unitized, the body tub provides most of the structural strength for the car. For this and other obvious reasons, potential buyers of your 1961 Jaguar XKE will want to examine the extent of any rust that has formed on the car. You should be prepared to allow a complete third-party inspection of this and mechanics if needed. Potential buyers will also want to see documentation of any maintenance or restoration. If you are selling an unfinished restoration project, it is always wise to be prepared with a list of components that come with the car. This will help you show value. A California classic car dealership based in Los Angeles, the team at is always searching for new classics to add to their collection. They are happy to pay top dollar, in cash and on the spot for many European and American classic cars, and will gladly pick up from any location in the United States. They also understand the value and importance these cars have had to their owners and will work tirelessly to ensure this transition is smooth and successful for everyone.
