Car was bought by previous owner(s) in Grand Junction, Colorado in 1969. The son had it for 10 years until 1979 and then sold it to his mother who owned it until 2005. She told me that she belivd the mileage at sale ( 85,200) to be accurate.

Opening bid $20,000 reserve not met, no bids yet, 6 days left in auction.

Sellers description:
1E30053 was the 53rd Series 1 4.2 E Type coupe produced, built September 14, 1964 and delivered its first Colorado owner in Denver in December of 1964. The next record of a transaction was the sale to its first Grand Junction, Colorado owner in 1969. He kept it for about 10 years and then sold it to his mother, also in Grand Junction, in 1979, who kept the car for the next 25 years. She said she had taken it off the road and "put it up" in a heated garage in 1993 until the spring of 2004 when she sold it through her son to a Denver restoration dealer. The restoration shop had put the car into roadworthy condition and I aquired it 6 months later.

The former owner, now 79 years old, told me that she never drove it winters and always kept it in a heated garage. She also stated that it had never been in an accident while she or her son had it. The odometer indicates 88,300 miles and while this is not certified on the title she assured me that she was sure that this was correct given the mileage at the time she sold it and the amount of time (35 years) the car was in her family.

The car was originally cream white with a red interior and was painted twice while they had it, the latter paint job resulting in a color more white than cream. It's interior evolved over the years from red to blue, capped off currently by a new original specification Jaguar blue interior.

Having spent its life in Colorado, the car is totally rust free, although at some point the floors appear to have been replaced. The former owner informed me that there had been some rust in the spare tire well after her son had gotten it years ago, however they had the entire well replaced at that time. At present, there is no visible evidence of rust anywhere inside, outside or under of the car.

The car is registered with collector plates and driven regularly, having covered over 2000 miles in 2005. The engine in the car is still the original, apparantly never having been rebuilt, yet it still runs sufficiently cleanly to have passed Colorado's strict emissions. In February 2006 the clutch was replaced and flywheel resurfaced and the engine was resealed,top and bottom. The transmission was also completely resealed. Consequently at present the CAR DOES NOT LEAK A DROP. The ball joints, tie rod ends and steering linkage U joint have been replaced within the past year.

Honest, Solid, Unrestored Example with Matching Numbers 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Coupe S/N 1E30053 Engine No. 7E1147-9 White with Blue Leather Completed in late 1964, and first sold in 1965, this 4.2 E-Type was finished in cream with red interior and delivered to Mr. M.R. Waldgan of Colorado, USA. It is best described as a nicely kept, unrestored car which has been driven regularly and maintained as necessary by previous owners, and has enjoyed a dry climate throughout its life. While not a show car, it is clean, straight, and predominantly rust free. Mr. Waldgran sold this E-Type in 1969 to a family in Grand Junction, Colorado who kept this car for 35 years, not selling it unitl 2004. The former owner, now 79 years old, reports that she never drove it in winter and always kept it in a heated garage. She also stated that it had never been in an accident while it was in her family, and there is no evidence of accident damage about the car. As an early 4.2 series one car, it retains all of the beauty, grace and power of the early cars while providing the benefits afforded by a smooth shifting full synchro transmission, negative ground alternator driven electrical system, and the more comfortable adjustable seats of the later cars. S/N 1E30053 was the 53rd Series 1 4.2 E-Type coupe produced and retains much of the cosmetic appearance of the 3.8. Cosmetically, the car is presentable and could be easily enjoyed as is. The body is quite straight and the door and trunk gaps are good. The bonnet gaps are even, but the alignment is slightly off, such that the rearward gap is uniformly enlarged. The car has been repainted in a color slightly whiter than cream. The repaint was a good job appropriate for the value of the car at that time. The chrome, much of which appears to be original, is in good condition, consistent with a `driver`. The windshield is also probably original, showing some wear. The car sits on very good chrome wire wheels. The interior has been reupholstered, and the color changed from red to attractive dark blue. The headliner appears to be original and in very good condition, while the carpet, door panels, console, rear storage area, and seats upholstery was all redone at one time as part of a kit, and has very little wear. The engine bay is largely original and complete with often missing window washer bottle. It is clean, detailed, and appears to be free from any significant leaks. While probably not up to show standards, the engine bay is definitely above average. The under carriage is generally solid and predominately rust free. The passenger`s foot well has been replaced with an aftermarket unit, which the drivers side is original and in good condition considering its age. Both sides have small spots of deterioration about the size of a quarter at the low points, which is almost inevitable on these cars. The balance of the underside is straight, solid and remarkably dry. The odometer indicates 89,257 miles, which was confirmed as correct by the previous owner, given the mileage at the time she bought it, sold it, and the amount of time (35 years) the cars was in her family. The engine in the car is still the original, apparently never having been rebuilt, yet it still runs sufficiently, and cleanly, with good power. In 2005 ball joints and tie rods ends were replaced. In February 2006 the clutch was replaced and the engine and transmission removed from the car and resealed, top and bottom. The steering universal joint was also changed at this time. In July 2006, the alternator was rebuilt and the voltage regulator replaced. At present there are virtually no engine or transmission leaks. With the car come some records from the previous ownership period, The Heritage Trust Certificate from Jaguar confirming this as a matching numbers example, a jack and hammer, and the spare wheel with tire. Also included are an operator`s manual and a complete new hose set from XKs Unlimited. For the perfection minded buyer, this is the ultimate platform for an easy and straightforward restoration. For most, this car will represent a clean and straight driver that has no urgent needs mechanically and is ready to be enjoyed.

Sellers description:
A Colorado car from new, it was in salt-free Denver with its first owner, then spent the next 35 years in even less salty Grand Junction until leaving in 2004. Finished in Old English White with Blue leather interior and fitted with new chrome wire wheels, blackwall tires and a Pioneer cassette stereo, it is only the 53rd Series I 4.2 liter coupé built. Under the bonnet the presentation is uniformly tidy, with good exhaust header porcelain, polished cam covers and SU carb dashpots. The square frame tubes are correctly finished in the exterior Olde English White. It has a quality repaint, the interior has been replaced with new leather, the gauges and dash are sharp and crisp, the carpets are new and it has its original engine. It is not a show car. Rather it is as tight, smooth, clean and as tidy a driver as anyone could want to find in a Series I 4.2 liter Jaguar, a car that its next owner will be able to boast about and still not be reluctant to use and enjoy. XKEs like this are nearly impossible to find.
