AutoRestoration: 1974 Jaguar XKE V12 Full Rebuild

This rebuild was kept in storage by a dealer, and ultimately qualified by its Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The XKE was originally finished in Regency Red with biscuit (aka camel) leather trim, and was, again, refinished with its red palette. It also came with an original factory hardtop when it was found during a ‘barn hunt’.

The restoration was a nuts and bolts effort including a complete refurb of the car’s V12 powerplant, plus a gearbox upgrade to a Gertrag 5 speed, the addition of power steering, and air conditioning.
