1963 Jaguar XKE

The Jaguar XKE, as it was known in America, became an instant icon of the 1960’s when it launched in 1961. While it was widely known for its incredible styling and its sleek and attractive curvature, the 1963 Jaguar XKE, and other model-years, was also a joy to drive. Gaining much of its mechanics and beauty from the latest Jaguar race cars of the day, it was a fashionable yet capable car. Offering drivers more than 150mph, the 1963 XKE pushed the limits of sports cars costing twice the price. With its 3.8-litre, six-cylinder XK6 engine from the XK150 line, the XKE certainly held its own. As you can imagine, the car was widely popular and more than 77,000 XKE models were sold during its 13-year lifespan. In October 1964, the engine was increased to 4.2-litres and offered even higher performance.


1963 Jaguar XKE Seller’s Guide

Perhaps the most common issue with the 1963 Jaguar XKE that plagues both buyers and sellers is rust. While many of these cars were not undercoated, none were galvanized, making rust an inevitable part of ownership with the XKE. If you’re preparing to sell your 1963 Jaguar the team at recommends being prepared to allow buyers to conduct a rust inspection. They may ask for the car to be put up on a lift so the undercarriage can be inspected, as this would be common for purchasing a classic of any make and condition. They may also ask for the car to be inspected by a third-part to ensure its originality, authenticity, and if necessary, mechanics. As a seller, these are items that you should be prepared to allow. This is just one of the many Seller’s Tips that the team can provide to you when inquiring about the sale of your Jaguar XKE. As a California classic car dealership with a reputation for honest and fair car deals, their team would be happy to discuss your particular 1963 XKE and, should the car fit into their collection, would be happy to offer you top dollar, in cash, on the spot. They work in this market everyday and know the “going value” for cars of all makes, models and conditions. Let their team make you an offer for a smooth and successful transaction today.
