Ebay item 7/29/04
Current bid $19,000.00 (Reserve met), 10 bids, 9 days left in auction.
Offered for sale is my 1967 Jaguar E-Type (XKE), Series 1, 4.2-liter roadster. The car is painted with red metallic lacquer, and the interior is black Connolly leather. This is an unrestored, driven car, and is not a show car. I have owned the car for almost 19 years, purchasing it in Valencia, California in 1985 from the previous owner. From registration records, I believe the car was originally sold in Oklahoma on July 7, 1967. The chassis number is 1E13194, and the car has 68,290 original miles. It has always been driven, although not very much in recent years. It has been registered in Texas, and has passed the Texas State Automobile Inspection every year of my ownership. The car has been my hobby, and over the years it has been selectively restored in many areas and has many new parts. I have garage notes, records, receipts, and documents from my years of ownership and from two previous owners. The car has always been garaged and covered under a car cover. This is an original car with all correct numbers. The car has covered glass headlights and all of the other classic features of the Series 1, 4.2-liter, E type roadsters. Although much of the car is in excellent condition, the car has some flaws and it is not perfect. I had originally planned on keeping the car, and completing the restoration as a retirement project. However, the car has suffered from lack of attention for the past few years and I have now lost enthusiasm to work on the car. This is a very beautiful car that will make someone a very fine driven car, or a complete car to restore. I know of nothing that is missing from this car. Every part on the car is either original or new original. Included with the car are many spare parts, which include: an E-Type repair manual, owners manual, the original jack, two knock off spinner hammers, bubble-type wheel balancing tool, and a replica E-Type tool kit. I have tried to be as accurate as possible about the condition of the car. I have set the reserve price quite low for this model E-Type roadster. This may be a rare opportunity to own one of the most beautiful cars of all time, and a true classic that will continue to appreciate in value.
PAINT: The paint is non-original red metallic lacquer. The car was painted in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the 1970's by one of the previous owners. The paint does have some very small chips and cracks around the edges of the bonnet, trunk and passenger door. There is also, a 3-inch shallow dent and chip in the bonnet close to the driver's side headlight. In general, the paint is bright and shinny and has not lost any of its original luster. BODY AND SHEET METAL: Overall I would rate the body of the car about a 6 - 7 out of 10. The bonnet is in mostly good condition, but if you look closely, you can see signs of previous repair work toward the front end. As noted above, the bonnet also has a shallow 3-inch crease at the front by the driver side headlight. The body sill panels below the doors, and the adjacent undercarriage sheet metal around the rear suspension anchor points, have signs of some rust, and there is also a small door ding in the passenger door. The remaining majority of the body is in very good to excellent condition. The original floor foot pans were dented, and were replaced with new original pans some years ago and are still in new condition. The engine frame work and most exposed metal components around the engine, including the firewall and battery compartment, have been refurbished and painted with rust preventative paint. Also, the entire trunk interior was repainted before new carpets and side panels were installed. CONVIRTIBLE TOP: The vinyl convertible top was almost new when I purchased the car. It was cleaned and refurbished and it looks very good today. It has no holes or rips and still has a shinny appearance. There is a faint brown line across the middle of the rear window, but otherwise it is in good shape. The metal top frame was repainted several years ago and still looks very good. All name plates and parts to the top frame, including new rubber around the side windows, has been replaced and is in like new condition. The top should last several more years of normal wear before replacement. There is also a full tonneau cover that covers the entire passenger compartment when the top is down, and a padded vinyl front-end cover, included with the car. WINDOW GLASS AND CHROME: The front windshield is original. It is in good condition but has small pits and wiper marks from almost 40 years of wear. The door window glass is new on both sides. All chrome on the car is in excellent condition. I have re-chromed many small parts. The bumpers were in excellent condition when I purchased the car and are still very good today. The chrome resonator pipes are several years old, but they are still in excellent condition. All other chrome is in excellent original condition. INTERIOR OF CAR: The interior is in like new condition. All interior parts including seat covers, seat cushions, carpets, door panels, vinyl coverings, etc etc. has been replaced with new original materials. All dash top and under-dash materials were replaced with new. Most of the rubber seals around windows, doors, trunk, and inside bonnet, have been replaced. The gauges and switches have been refurbished or replaced with new. The original radio has been repaired, but still has low volume. The clock in the tachometer does not work. All materials in the trunk are new. The entire interior of the car looks like a show car. WHEELS AND TIRES: The chrome wire wheels are in excellent shape. All 5 wheels have been refurbished, and there are no broken spokes. Some wheels where totally restored by British Wire Wheels Co., in California. The chrome on all wheels is excellent. The tires are Pirelli size 705/70/15, and are in like new condition. The knock-off spinners for the wheels are in good original condition. MECHANICALS: The car always starts and runs very well. The engine will sometime have a slight "ping" when I don't drive the car very often. There has always been a slight timing chain rattle in the engine, which seems to diminish when the car runs for awhile. The original distributor was replaced with a Mallory dual point distributor several years ago. The original distributor is available with the car. The clutch hydraulic cylinders, fuel pump, steering column bushings, water pump, and alternator have all been replaced or rebuilt. The entire exhaust system from the header pipes to tail pipes was replaced a few years ago, and is in almost new condition. The exhaust manifold has been porcelain coated and is in like new condition. The engine, transmission, and drive train are all sound. There is a slight noise in the clutch when shifting between gears. This noise has been present through my 19 years of ownership, and does not effect the performance of the car. The brakes, although fine, probably need service. The steering is tight and true, but I suspect needs inspection for ball joint and bushing service. Overall the car runs fine, but it would benefit from a complete service and a tune up.
