Mellow: ’68 Jaguar XKE FHC
This is a mellow yellow Jaguar XKE Fixed Head Coupe. When Enzo Ferrari said he thought the Jaguar E-Type was the most beautiful car in the world we are sure he was referring to the Coupe. The current owner of 20 years had this Jag re-sprayed in the original color and then refitted the interior with new leather seats. The rest of the car looks as it should or as best as we can ascertain from the photos. This is the last of the Series that has the beautiful and small rear tailights positioned above the rear bumper. This is a no-reserve eBay auction so the pricing of this could be all over the place. What we can say is that Hagerty saw a price drop of some significance from a high point in 2006 of almost $100,000 for a perfect Coupe. Current pricing of the same car in relative terms shows a price of $60,000. Now this car is not perfect (what car is?) but looks like a great driver-quality car. The color may hurt it just a little bit. We sort of like Primrose but that’s just us. Click here for the eBay auction.
