1965 JAGUAR XKE ROADSTER for sale. Motorcar Classics is now offering this incredible 1965 Jaguar XKE Roadster featured in Opalescent Silver Blue with Navy Blue leather interior and matching Navy Blue Haartz canvas soft top. The car has just completed an incredible and photo-documented nut and bolt restoration. The restoration was done on a sound car from dry Texas whose prior owner had the car for 28 years. Built on January 19th, 1965 it is an early car, the 502nd 4.2L LHD OTS built. JDHT Heritage Certificate included. All numbers match. For the XKE enthusiast, this car has the desirable combination of covered headlights, toggle switches, and eared knockoffs.
Max Weinbergs hero was bandleader/drummer Dave Clark, of the Dave Clark Five, who is photographed on the cover of Catch Us If You Can lying across the bonnet of an XKE. From then on, Max always said he would own an XKE of the same vintage, and this is the car.
Maxs car was originally Pale Primrose, but he changed it to period-correct Opalescent Silver Blue. In the restoration the brakes were upgraded to Wilwood all-around, and the engine runs ceramic headers. It is detailed to perfection in all respects and a thrill to drive.
