Selling a 1963 Jaguar XKE Convertible

There were no major changes between the 1962 and 1963 Jaguar XKE Convertible and Fixed Head Coupe models. Glass-covered headlights would continue to be tucked away neatly in the fenders. The exaggerated curvature of the hood would continue to taper down to a small oval air intake. And, the original thin chrome bumpers, which were often described as cat whiskers, would continue to give the Jaguar a feline presence. Slightly more than the comparable Corvette model of the era, yet half the price of a Ferrari, the Jaguar XKE Convertible would have a strong market presence. In total, 1,913 examples of the 1963 Jaguar XKE Convertible would be manufactured. Today, classic car enthusiasts and Jaguar collectors continue to search for these early model Jaguar XKE examples of all conditions. If you’re looking to sell your classic Jaguar XKE Convertible or Fixed Head Coupe model, the Alex Manos team encourages you to contact them today.


1963 Jaguar XKE Convertible Seller’s Guide

Characterized by its open-air driving experience, the 1963 Jaguar XKE Convertible was and continues to be popular among buyers who appreciate the feeling of the wind blowing in their hair and the sun hitting their face. Part of Jaguar’s Series I production that would run from 1961 to 1967, the 1963 XKE often has one serious issue: rust. These early models received little to no rust protection; many were not undercoated and none were galvanized. Their trip across the ocean on the decks of freightliners exposed to salt did not help the situation. Today, when selling your 1963 Jaguar XKE Convertible, be sure to give buyers a fair assessment of the overall condition of your example. Remember that buyers are looking for all types of XKE models – some for restoration, some for parts, some as pristine examples – and that rust may not deter a buyer from purchasing. Buyers will, however, expect that your asking price accurately reflect the condition of the car.
