Ebay item 9/13/10
Current bid $17,300, reserve not met, 4 bids 6 days left in auction.
1967 Jaguar XKE roadster. This automobile was completely restored in 1997 and has been used on a regular basis since. It is in very good condition, it is original and a matching number car. This car has regular state of NJ license plates and has passed NJ motor vehicle inspection every other year as required. I restored this car and will try to relate what I can in this description.
The total milage is 135,355. I have put on 51,000 miles in almost 14 years since the restoration.
The following work was completed when the car was restored in 1997 - The car was completely disassembled and rebuilt, details of the work performed when the car was restored follows:
Body - paint stripped and painted with red laquer paint. No clear coat - hand polished to obtain the finish. New recessed floor pans were welded in - seamed, not spot welded. Other rust spots were welded before using any filler and sanding. The car can be jacked up by the lift points, it is a solid car.
Chrome - original - presentable but not re-chromed.
Engine: Head - new exhaust valves, valve springs, valve guides and cam bearings - head milled and valve job completed.
Engine: Block - crank cut, new oversize 9 to 1 compression pistons. Hepolite if I recall, new hastings rings installed ( better than what comes with the piston set, block bored. New oil pump, all new bearings ( rod and main) wrist pins come with the pistons, timing chains, tensioners, etc. Gaskets and seals - assembled to specifications. - 3 carburetors rebuilt.
Transmission; Original - new pressure plate, clutch, throw-out bearing and pilot bearing. Slave cylinder is new and the clutch master was rebuilt - also re-sleeved first.
Rear: completely taken down, (not the differential itself) new swing bearings, everything cleaned and checked at the time.
Brakes: all calipers rebuilt, the cylinders were re-sleeved, prior to being assembled . Master cylinder also re-sleeved prior to rebuilding. Power booster unit rebuilt also. Dot 5 - silicone brake fluid used throughout including as a lubricant for assembly. All new rotors, brake lines & hoses.
Radiator: New Martin Robi original
Emergency brake: cleaned, lubed - new pads
Interior - New Bartlett leather interior kit. Includes wool rugs, door pads, foam, etc.
Top : New German canvas top and Boot (roof bows re-painted in silver)
Trunk: New trunk kit
Wheels: New Dayton wire wheels with stainless steel spokes - Spare is original - correct series 1 style
Body seals: all new including door felt
Exhaust: Falcon stainless steel exhaust - an excellent system
Windshield: New, including rubber seal
Radio system: Alpine AM/FM/cd player with an Alpine 6 cd changer mounted in the Trunk. Infinity speakers installed in the left and right front factory recess’s and rear speakers installed in leather covered boxes behind each seat, no holes in the body except for the screws. - (see pictures)
Electrical: Alternator and starter motor rebuilt - wiring harness is original - no need to replace it
Front End: all new ball joints, tie rod ends, upper and lower control arm bushings and shocks.
Tires: recently purchased 185x15 original size Vredestine radial tires. - see pictures
The electric cooling fan is aftermarket, since the original fan was always too weak to provide much air flow. The aftermarket fan is attached to the radiator, but not using anything that would touch the core!
The paint has stone chips on the nose of the bonnet and heat, age cracks in the laquer paint near the louvers. This is not all that visible in the pictures, but it can be seen when looking at the car. I have a spare gallon of the same paint that will go with the car, permitting an exact match. ( Re-painting of the center section of the bonnet would be a good idea. I have tried to include a couple of close-up pictures of the nose and louvers. This may help to see what I am referring to.)
There is a recess behind the passenger door where settling took place. It has been there since the work was performed - Not bad (see pictures)
The tach stopped working recently, might be the tach generator, but I have not attempted to check it out.
The engine has an oil leak ( typical Jaguar) - have not tried to fix it.
The engine has always run hotter than I would like, about 3/4 or more but has never over heated. I believe that a five core radiator rather than the original should solve that.
Comments: An original Jack, Hammer, and Tool kit are included with this car. Also there is a tan soft indoor car cover, not shown.
The pictures were taken within one week of listing this car on two different days.
I have placed a reserve on this car that I believe is fair. This is a reliable car that has been well cared for and carefully restored. The restoration is now an older restoration and some things, as mentioned, would need attending to. I believe that I have noted all known problem areas.
If anyone is near my area of NJ and would like to see this car, you are welcome to.
