More Gears: ’70 Jaguar XKE OTS
Any XKE is a beautiful thing to behold and to drive. There are loads of them on the market at any given time and some are really nicely restored cars, well-kept cars with a cosmetic refresh or nice drivers. Then there are the fright pigs that we need to avoid at all costs because they will destroy your bank account and make you hate automobiles forever. When we came across this one, we thought it was a notch above the rest and worthy of Mint space. It is a 1-owner California car with 66,000 original miles that has been treated to a sympathetic refresh. In the process, it sprouted an extra gear making it a 5-speed and a better all around highway cruiser. It now has triple-laced chrome wire wheels to support a wider tire. If you meet the seller’s asking price of $49,500 you get the original factory hard top in the deal. Contact the seller by clicking here.
