Selling a 1968 Jaguar XKE Convertible
Part of the unofficial transitional Series 1 ½ Jaguar XKE models that were manufactured in 1967 and 1968, the 1968 Jaguar XKE Convertible featured a handful of changes that were implemented during this time to conform with new safety and emissions regulations in the United States. Some of the most important visual changes compared to the Series I XKE models would include the loss of the original Le Mans-style glass-covered headlights and cam covers that were ribbed and painted black. Mechanically, two emission-calibrated Zenith carburetors would stand in the place of three SU carburetors and twin electric fans were fitted to help engine cooling. These emissions changes did cause power to decrease slightly from 265 horsepower to 246 horsepower. These are just a few ways that a 1968 Jaguar XKE can be identified, although the best method is always to check the engine and chassis numbers against the records of Jaguar. When selling your 1968 Jaguar Convertible, always be ready to provide buyers with this information.
