1971 Jaguar XKE Series II 4.2L Coupe For Sale - Tastefully Upgraded, Concours Winner LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1971 Jaguar XKE Series II 4.2L Fixed Head Coupe Federal regulations in the United States, Jaguar’s most important market, drove some of the Series II’s changes, including revised lighting and the shift to a pair of Stromberg carburetors in place of the three SU units of earlier E-Types. Externally, the air intake substantially increased in size, a change masked by larger, full-width bumpers that were matched at the rear to meet U.S. low-speed impact requirements. The well-proven 4.2-liter XK six-cylinder engine was little changed, although a higher-capacity water pump was fitted, taking advantage of the enlarged radiator air intake and better adapting the E-Type to warmer climates. The chassis got bigger Girling brakes with three-piston calipers at the front and two-piston calipers at the rear, while the interior now included reclining seats as standard equipment. In short, the steady evolution of the E-Type meant that buyers of the Series II got a much better, more comfortable and reliable Jaguar—attributes that complemented its already well-established reputation for superior performance, handling, and appearance.
