*Long-Term Collectors Ownership
This beautiful S-I 4.2 Coupe is an excitingly original car with a clean history from accidents or rust. Recently out of a long-term Jaguar collection in a dry Colorado garage, this car has benefited from great care and maintenance as needed to keep everything in good order and numbers matching throughout.
Worn over the years, the Opalescent Blue metallic paint on this car is completely original, less the black stripe added years ago. The blue interior isn’t shy of its age either; showing all original, aside from having the seats recovered and a replacement of carpet. Lifting the bonnet reveals a startlingly original appearance – right down to the original washer bottle strap! Lighting off with no qualms, she purrs smoothly having benefited from a fairly recent cylinder head refurbishment. Running and driving present no challenges either, and a light service with the addition of fresh tires is all that separates this cat from the open road once again.
These S-I coupes are extremely hard to find in original condition and coupes, in general, are rarer by the day. This is a wonderful example of the car that changed the world. Enzo Ferrari himself claimed the S-I XKE to be “the most beautiful car ever made…”
