Selling a 1969 Jaguar XKE Convertible
Despite a wealth of safety and emissions regulations coming down from the United States during the 1967 and 1968 model-years, even more regulations would be seen in 1969. These regulations would cause more changes for the 1969 Jaguar XKE Convertible and the start of official Series II production. For one, the front turn signal lights and taillights were increased in size and were moved from above to below the bumper. Side marker lights were also incorporated into the design. To comply with safety concerns, the seats were also fitted with headrests. Brakes were upgraded and radial tires were now standard, and air conditioning and power steering would now become additional options. When selling your 1969 Jaguar XKE Convertible, these are just a few of the characteristics that will help set your classic Jaguar apart from the others.
1969 Jaguar XKE Convertible Seller’s Guide
When compared to the Fixed Head Coupe and Fixed Head Coupe 2+2 models, the Convertible is perhaps the more desired body style. During this particular model year, it is estimated that 3,477 of the 1969 Jaguar XKE Convertible models were released, while only 1,937 Coupes and 1,433 2+2 models were produced. Today, the Convertible continues to be popular for the same reasons it was attractive back then: an open-air driving experience, the appeal of being exposed to the elements, and the attractive design and elegance of the Convertible experience. Think back to the reasons why you purchased an XKE Convertible; these are the same reasons why buyers today would be attracted to your classic. When it comes time to sell your classic Jaguar, always be sure to take these considerations into account, yet be careful to be accurate with your overall assessment of condition and therefore price. You should also have as much documentation available as you can for potential buyers to view in order to build confidence about your model.
