Every time I make a blanket statement, I get in trouble. Arrgg…I just did it again. The statement I made the other day was something about kit cars being mostly replica Cobras and things based on Volkswagen Beetle chassis and that the Jag kit was interesting and unique…and then we got a tip for another Jag kit car, this one based on an RX-7, complete with 13B rotary power? Whaaa?? Why didn’t I know about this? Who wouldn’t want the nimble reflexes of an FB RX-7 mated with the gorgeous looks of an E-Type convertible…even if it is a “gasp” kit car. Find this 1967 Jaguar XKE E-Type Kit offered for $22500 in West Babylon, NY via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

1967 Jaquar XKE E-Type replica kit car done with a Wildcat body which is very rare as they made very few of them. If this were a real 1967 XKE it would cost somewhere in the $125k range, so for a fraction of the price here is a better driving and more dependable one! Very expensive replica with many, many real Jaquar parts, as you can see, and they weren’t cheap! It was built on a 1984 Mazda Rx-7 GS chassis with original 13B fuel injected rotary engine (first year for this excellent motor I believe) and 5 speed transmission. The gauges are very close to the real car, the top is Jaquar, tail lights, steering wheel is pretty close with real horn button and bumpers. This car runs and drives awesome! The paint and fit and finish is very nice for a kit car for sure! The interior is very nice and just look at the gauges. The underside is rust free, of course, and it is pretty nice actually. This kit with labor cost $70k + after buying the car! This is a very rare kit and, I personally, have never seen another one. I have the instruction booklet on building it and the Mazda owners manual along with the Chilton book for the RX-7 and a few other books and manuals! The windshield has a crack on the passenger side and the drivers window is difficult to roll up and down, other than that everything is in nice shape.
