Selling a 1969 Jaguar XKE
Marking the release of the Jaguar Type-E Series 2 line was the 1969 Jaguar XKE, complete with all the changes and modifications that needed to be made to meet new emissions and safety standards presented by the United States. Throughout the two model-years prior, Jaguar had implemented a number of changes that would help the XKE comply and rolled out all the official changes with the 1969 XKE. A larger grill opening and the repositioning of the signal lights at the front of the car can help you recognize models from 1969. Brakes on these models were also upgraded and radial tires became standard equipment. Perhaps the biggest change that came in 1969 – and one that is often modified back to the style of previous years – is the wheel knock-off “nut.” Due to safety concerns the winged-spinner knock-off was no longer allowed in U.S. markets, therefore all U.S. bound cars would receive a hexagonal knock-off nut, which was hammered on and off with a special socket. This special socket was included with the car. While many have been lost or damaged over time, having the original tools can increase the value of your 1969 XKE. This type of nut would be used for the Series 2 and Series 3 cars, and would eventually be standard on cars for the home market as well.
