Leap into this Leaper on Leap Year Day!

There's no denying the fact that the E-Type/XKE is one of the most beautiful Jaguar ever made and it's easily one of the most beautiful cars ever made, and this 1965 Jaguar XKE is definitely a pristine example. Fresh off a rotisserie restoration, this Jaguar should be one of the best cars that will be offered up by GAA Classic Cars on Saturday, February 29, 2020 (Leap Year Day!).

Where to start on this gorgeous Jag? Perhaps the most unique aspect of this car is that it has just two owners and just under 100,000 miles dating back to when it was purchased brand new back in 1965 in Riverside, California. After spending the 43 years with its first owner who is said to have driven the car daily, it was then sold to a marine stationed at Camp Pendleton where it continued to be driven and shown.

In 2017, this car underwent a three-year restoration that saw the body and monocoque brought down to bare metal and the powertrain being professionally rebuilt. The original engine and cylinder head were replaced by the car's first owner, but the replacements were sourced from another '65 XKE. This Jaguar was repainted in its original Carmen Red paint job with spectacular chrome and 15-inch knock-off wheels. Finishing off the incredible condition of this XKE, the car will also be sold with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate and the original tool roll kit.
