Specific description 1971 Jaguar XKE SII Roadster 4.2 liter with Matching Numbers. The car has been in the same family for 35 years. Complete restoration was completed in October 2014. Car has been driven less than 1000 miles since the complete restoration. The entire car was redone - body repainted, interior redone and engine, transmission and clutch rebuilt. Interior is special from Bass and it cost €4.000. The restoration and history of the car is very well documented. We have all the North Carolina registration cards. Car runs and drives excellent. Car comes with 2 tops - new convertible top and a fiberglass hard top. Car comes with heritage certificate and the original operating, maintenance and service handbook as well as the owners guide. The car has also its original steering wheel. Overall an “extremely” nice car.

Model description Following the Series 1 there was a transitional series of cars built in 1967–1968, unofficially called "Series 1½", which are externally similar to Series 1 cars. Due to American pressure the new features were open headlights, different switches, and some de-tuning (using two Zenith-Stromberg carburetters instead of the original three SUs) for US models. Some Series 1½ cars also have twin cooling fans and adjustable seat backs. Series 2 features were gradually introduced into the Series 1, creating the unofficial Series 1½ cars, but always with the Series 1 body style. A United States federal safety law affecting 1968 model year cars sold in the U.S. was the reason for the lack of headlight covers and change in switch design in the "Series 1.5" of 1968. An often overlooked change, one that is often "modified back" to the older style, is the wheel knock-off "nut." U.S. safety law for 1968 models also forbid the winged-spinner knockoff, and any 1968 model year sold in the U.S. should have a hexagonal knockoff nut, to be hammered on and off with the assistance of a special "socket" included with the car from the factory. This hexagonal nut carried on into the later Series 2 and 3.
