Selling a 1962 Jaguar XKE Convertible
First debuted in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar XKE was the brainchild of Malcolm Gilbert Sayer. Having spent more than twenty years of his life working at Jaguar, Sayer would combine his love of art and mathematics to bring the Jaguar XKE to the road. His vision would be to build an aerodynamic and mathematically perfect car; a vision that many would agree he fulfilled. Today, the classic Jaguar XKE continues to be one of the most desired classic cars in the market, with its classic styling and timeless beauty. In fact, Sayer’s influence can be seen even on today’s Jaguars. Your 1962 Jaguar XKE Convertible is a beautiful example of this era’s classics and is widely sought-after in the classic car market today. In total, only 2,749 units of the 1962 XKE Convertible (also known as the Jaguar XKE Roadster) would be manufactured and it is difficult to approximate how many are still in existence today.
1962 Jaguar XKE Convertible Seller’s Guide
If you’re thinking about selling your 1962 Jaguar XKE Convertible, it is important to remember that many buyers will be searching for the most authentic and original model they can purchase within their budget. They will also be concerned with the overall condition of the XKE, as rust was a particular problem with these early models. Because the Jaguar boasts a partially unitized construction, body panels serve for both beauty and structural support. Extensive damage can be quite costly, and buyers will take this into account. One of the best steps you can take prior to listing your Jaguar XKE for sale is to prepare yourself with all the documents and history you can find on the car. This may include ownership history, restoration and repair documentation, restoration receipts, copies of the engine and chassis number, and anything else you have that may show the car’s history and authenticity. You’ll also want to have current pictures of the car that show the overall condition and point out any areas of concern. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that will help you when it comes time to sell your classic Jaguar.
