Ebay item 9/10/04
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll
Opening bid $30,000.00 (Reserve not met), no bids yet, 6 days left in auction.

Sellers description:
1968 Jaguar XKE Roadster
Virtually everything on this car has been either replaced or rebuilt. The car was originally rebuilt to be a vintage racer. I had an injury to my neck when the car was nearing completion. I then converted it for use on the street and in car shows. Many, many of the parts have been powder coated or polished. The car has been entered in 4 shows and it has won 4 times!

I have spent a lot of money on this car and my goals were to make sure it was fast, very reliable, easy to maintain and drop dead gorgeous. I purchased it from a police officer who had inherited it from his dad who was the original owner. It had an estimated 60,000 miles on it when I purchased it. I have maybe put another 2,000 miles on it since finishing the project. I’m am selling it now for business reasons. This XKE is better than virtually any other XKE I have ever driven or looked at. The car has a reserve price and will be sold as is where is. One other thing, the lucky winner will have to get used to crowds surrounding the car no matter where he/she takes it.

Questions from other buyers for this listing
Q: What tuning has been done to the engine, with what result? Answered on Sep-15-04
A: The engine was completely rebuilt by Classic Jag in Austin, Tx. It was supposed to produce 300 hp. I then had Rick Korn (a local vintage XKE racer) make changes to the car to make it streetable. He replaced the camshafts to PJ50 (Terry's Jag). The car has 10:1 compression and 235-240 lbs / cylinder. The car is very streetable and extremely fast.
Q: Jerry, What type of fuel injection (vendor, etc.) did you use? I may not be able to see the car before the auction is complete, but I am in Bothell WA so if for some reason it doesn't sell, I may be able to drop by and take a look. thanks! Answered on Sep-15-04
A: A really good person to talk to is Rick Korn (425-402-7878). He worked very hard on the system and i feel he should benefit in some way. Rick is in Bothell as well. Another advantage with EFI is a huge reduction in pollutants when compared to the original carb setups. I have never believed that just b/c you have a old car you should be allowed to pollute.
Q: BRAVO Good job. I am also building a 68 XKE but I am starting with a coupe and cutting the top so to use the shorter converable windscreen. I restored 6 now building to my specs. I would like to Email you direct. STVFLYNN@AOL.COM Answered on Sep-13-04
A: Thank you the car is absolutley awesome. I thought the car would look really good with a chopped wind screen. Matter of fact the two things i would do to the car would be supercharge the engine and chop the windsheild. It would have no difficulty in winning major custom car shows. My email is mike@amazinguniverse.com
Q: Do you additional pictures of this car? Would you assist in shipping to Annapolis, MD. I everything in place to have it street registered? adam Answered on Sep-13-04
A: Dear Adam, I can get some additional pictures however it is raining really hard right now, it will have to wait awhile. What do you mean by assist? There are lots of trucking companies that transport cars and you can find them in Hemmings. The car is registered for the street. Mike
Q: please email me pictures of the hardtop.does the original bonnet come with car? thanks Answered on Sep-12-04
A: I will send you pictures tomorrow. Because we were wanting to race the car we wanted to use a carbon fiber bonnet. It would have been a waste of money trying to fix the original bonnet and we destroyed it. Mike
Q: is this a dealer sale or private sale. whaT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN a CHEAP FIBERGLASS BONNET AND THE CARBON fiber one thanks Jerry mcglothin Answered on Sep-12-04
A: Dear Jerry. This is a private sale. Carbon fiber is much stronger than fiberglass. It is also less bulky. It is used in appliactions such as the space program, automobile racing were great strength is needed with the least weight. There are lots of information available at your libary or on the web on carbon fiber. The original bonnet was in poor shape and because we were going to race the car we wanted to use a carbon fiber bonnet. Carbon fiber parts are usually much more expensive than a comparable product made in fiberglass. Hopefully this helps. Mike
Q: Did you keep the original bonnet? Answered on Sep-10-04
A: No, we did not keep the original bonnet. It was in poor shape and we destroyed it.
Q: I assume the numbers do not match? Is this the standard Jag. 4.2 engine? Also, I see the bonnet is different...why the venting? Lastly, on the lower front...the front bumper??? Thanks..JEFF Answered on Sep-10-04
A: Ans. The numbers match. The bonnet is carbon fiber and is used extensively in vintage racing. The NASA intake funnels cool air to the velocity stacks. The car has no bumpers again b/c it was designed to be a vintage racer. It also looks much better (IMHO). I guess the car show wins would support that. Hopefully this helps

Car now offered at:
www.lbilimited.com/wp_car_dealer/1968-jaguar-e-type-roadster-series-1-5/

Sellers description:
The example on offer here, a 1968 Jaguar E-Type Roadster, Series 1.5, Chassis # 1E17567 started life as a Sable Brown over Saddle roadster. It was manufactured on April 8th, 1968, and dispatched exactly one month later destined for its new home here in the US. It's first owner was a Tank Mechanic for the US Army, located in Washington State. It remained here for many years until the son of the original owner acquired the vehicle and embarked on a restoration/freshening of the car. Towards the middle of 1998 however, the decision was made to simply sell the car. It was then that the new owner, with many interesting plans in mind, came across the car in the news paper (included in the sale) and offered to purchase the Jaguar. His intent at the time was to save it, but as the car grew on him quickly, it was the fuel injected lightweight cars that grabbed his attention, and it was soon to become something very interesting.

After the cars sale on 8/16/1998 to a Mr. Kitson also of Washington State, it was quickly sent to the marque specialists at Classic Jaguar of Austin, Texas; with the intent to turn the car into a full blown track car with all of the right modifications and alternations to turn this into a car that could go fast, handle, stop and perform like that of the lightweight of the 1960's. It wasn't far into the build that the owner had a change of plans, and the decision was made to keep on the path of a race car, but without putting numbers on the side and replacing the slicks for a set of Pirelli road tires. In short, this Jaguar E-Type is like none other extant. It has been correctly, thoroughly, and painstakingly modified and engineered to perform with precision while staying as true as possible to its lightweight roots, and of course, road legal.

The theme of this car is really modification, not correctness or following a JCNA judging book. It's about power, precision, and an interesting combination of factors that offer a thrill and experience like no other crumpet catcher can. The car was totally stripped and taken apart upon receiving it in Texas, parts were inventoried, and a long dialogue between the owner and folks at Classic Jaguar began to quote out and plan for the build (documented). The cosmetic alternations include bumper deletes, as well as a carbon-kevlar lightweight replica bonnet with a specialized air intake and brake cooling ducts. A hardtop was acquired as well, and the entirety of the car was properly prepped for the dark opalescent blue that was about to be applied. Afer a few coats and much wet sanding and buffing the finish was near flawless and easily show quality. While the rear end was out of the car it was completely stripped, powder coated and reassembled with polyurethane bushings throughout. In Addition the rear brakes were enlarged and wildwood calibers were utilized along with steel braded lines. The front end received the same treatment and all 4 corners received adjustable high performance shocks. All riding on a set of center laced Dayton wire wheels that are 205 wide. The engine bay is perhaps where this car shines, it is totally rebuilt, balanced, blue printed, and modified with cams, light weight pistons, electronic ignition, spin on oil filter and last but not least custom programmable Jenvy fuel injection flowing through a Redline intake manifold that has been ported and polished. All of which are compliments of the experts at Team CJ, a Jaguar only engine Development Company specializing in the 3.8 and 4.2 Motors. All things considered this car is producing 320HP on pump gas, and is properly tuned to perform.

Power to the ground is put through an aluminum flywheel, new clutch, and totally rebuilt transmission with these modifications in mind. Totally new U-Joints throughout as well as a Limited Slip Differential means the right combination of clutch and throttle can put a smile on the users face in an instant. Cooling the car is all aluminum radiator with series 2 fans.

The car handles just as well as it looks, HD torsion bars, adjustable height reaction plates, and HD sway bars ensure this cat can get around corners with minimal body roll. The exhaust note is also pleasant through the Jet Hot Coated aluminum headers and stainless steel big bore exhaust system.

The interior was hardly put to the side during the build as well. It included a totally redone interior to proper specifications with only minor subtle changes. New saddle hides and total interior kit were installed along with a stereo system that has been tastefully integrated. The dash was refurbished as necessary as were all of the chrome items on the car. Overall nicely done, and finished off with a slightly smaller but stock appearing steering wheel.

The list and receipts for this car continue all the way up to nearly $145,000 between the work completed and initial purchase price from the second ownership. It was treated as if it were being restored for the concours circuit and the race track. As such the craftsmanship, quality of work, and overall presentation of this example are impeccable with nothing skipped and only the best products and people utilized to create was is one of the more incredible road going E-Types we have ever driven. As it has been driven and enjoyed, it has also been well serviced and cared for with plenty of post restoration receipts. It also has a few minor blemishes to be noted here and there. Nothing of significance that warrants refinishing but still present. Such items as a touched up scratch on the bonnet on the front right, and two scratches on the hardtop that have been touched up as well. The interior shows a few signs of use, but again, nothing to worry about.

Offered with every receipt possible, books, tools, jack, EFI Programmer, and a very nice hardtop; This E-Type has been dialed in and is completely turn key for its next enthusiastic and brave owner. Built by professional and dreamt up from passion this example would be hard-pressed to be copied and is truly a one-off high performance opportunity.

I recently purchased this car (10/2013) and it now resides in Los Angeles, CA

The car is great, but the differential seems to be locked up. I am about to take it to be repaired. Does anyone who knows this car have a advise or comments?
