Ebay item 10/2/14
www.ebay.com/itm/Jaguar-E-Type-Two-Seat-1966-e-type-xke-coupe-w-5-speed-tremec-c ...
Car has a buy it now price of $69,950 for 6 days. Car now said to be in Lizella, Georgia. 99k miles.

Sellers description:
1966 Jaguar E Type Coupe.

I purchased this XKE Coupe a couple of years ago at a British car show in Atlanta, Georgia. The previous owner had the car for over six years and it was always garaged and well maintained. This is mostly a survivor having never been restored, but always registered and driven for its 48 year life. The color is Regency Red and was re-pained once from its original British Racing Green. This is a fully matching numbers car. The engine and cylinder head are original to the car and match the original data plate. The car has approximately 99k miles as per the odometer. This may or may not be accurate, but seems reasonable.

In my ownership, I have spent near to $25k on upgrades and repairs:

5-Speed Transmission:
If you have never owned an E Type you would not know that the gearing is not suitable to today's higher speeds and Interstate driving. Since the clutch was starting to slip and the original 4-speed gearbox was leaking some gear lube, I decided to retrofit the state-of-the-art Tremec 5-speed gearbox conversion. This is the "racer preferred" Medatronics conversion which included a brand new balanced driveshaft assembly, speedo cable and mounts. I had them build it with close ratio gears with .80:1 overdrive 5th so that all gears are spaced evenly which gives the best overall driving experience. The standard .63:1 has a taller overdrive which has a tendency to be too wide a gap between 4th to 5th gears and lugs the engine in urban driving conditions. This is the ultimate driving experience for the Jaguar XKE. Now, cruising on the Interstate is pleasurable. The slave cylinder is brand new as well as the hydraulic hose. This is a $5000 upgrade not including labor of which there is very much. A new balanced clutch and resurfaced flywheel refitted, a new water pump was installed, the distributor was cleaned, vacuum advance weights unstuck and lubed and then all adjusted, the triple SU carburetors were cleaned and adjusted, the radiator was back-flushed and new coolant was installed. The starter was upgraded to a brand new gear reduction unit and the battery was replaced with a brand new Interstate brand. All hoses and belts were replaced. New spark plugs and 8mm wires were installed. A new, high volume pusher electric fan was installed for the hot Southern climate. The original fan and shroud is still in place.

The engine is original and never rebuilt. The oil pressure is high (70 psi cold start, 60 warm). No smoke from the tailpipes other than a little on start-up which quickly dissipates. The engine runs well, but it could benefit from a valve adjustment. I had plans to remove the head eventually and have it thoroughly rebuilt with hardened valve guides and valves, so I didn't get into adjusting the valve because it requires special shims that Jaguar specialists keep on hand for swapping about. She runs well and I have enjoyed the overall driving experience as it is. You can always spend more to make these cars better.

Overall, the car is a driver. The paint is old and cracking in places, but looks great from ten feet away. I had an area on the passenger side inner bonnet near the hinge that had some rust professionally repaired by a Jaguar specialist. The bonnet nylon hinge bushings were all replaced as they tend to get worn and cause alignment problems. I had the rear bumpers and over riders re-chromed and they look brand new and are original to the car rather than cheap reproductions that don't fit. I replaced the dealer optional "dinged and dented" Amco grill surround (it did its job protecting the body) with a used surround that is perfect, no dings, and perfect chrome. The rear bumpers did not have a surround, but I located a nice one that will be included with the car. All of the glass is in good shape. No chips or scratches. Any lenses that needed replacing were replaced with genuine OEM Lucas parts that match the patina of the car. Doors and hatch open and close easily and have proper gaps. The only rust to speak of is under the battery on the driver's side rocker panel. Overall structurally sound. There is some rust and this is the typical area that gets this because of battery corrosion over the years. I have wire brushed cleaned and keep the area clean. Remember, this is a Southern car and has not been exposed to the harsh winters of the salt belt or North East. I'm sure there is filler in the car after 48 years, this is a given, but this car has been wearing this paint job for probably 30 years or more.

The interior is very presentable. The leather seat covers have been replaced and have no tears or unsightly issues. The headliner is all original and looks nice. The original wood steering wheel is still on the car which is a rarity. There are some cracks, but the finish is excellent. These are very fragile and get pulled on getting in and out, so it's a wonder that it has survived. All gauges are working, even the gauge lighting. New leather and foam kit on arm rest.

The exhaust had been replaced and the muffler is brand new, so she sounds like an XKE is supposed to. The wire wheels have been upgraded to Daytons which don't rust like the older Dunlops. I replaced two of the four spinners with new ones from Jaguar. The gas tank was removed and cleaned. In my ownership, I have not done any suspension or brake work. It appears original with typical underbody dirt that you would expect from an original 99k mile survivor car. It feels tight driving and handling is very good.

The car drives straight down the highway (no pulling left or right). The steering wheel is centered (recent alignment).The brakes will stop you well...but I must say that the 5-speed transmission conversion transforms the car. The gear change is precise and easy. The lever is bright and shiny chrome and the shift knob is a vintage dealer option Amco walnut wood knob with the Jaguar porcelain logo to match and compliment the steering wheel perfectly. This is just my personal preference, but is feels warm and inviting in your hand. You can cruise at high speeds in comfort with the overdrive. This is the way that the cars need to be in the 21 century.

Overall condition is very good. I would say that she is a work in progress. She is beautiful garage art and will fulfill your desire to own a dream car at an affordable price.

Lot: 17
1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Fixed-Head Coupe

Estimate: $110,000 - $145,000

Chassis Number: 1E32122
Engine: 4.2L DOHC, 265 bhp, Twin Overhead Cam, Straight-Six Engine
Triple SU Side-Draft Carburetors
Jaguar Four-Speed Manual Transmission
Four-Wheel Power Disk Brakes
Odometer: 99,233 Miles Showing

• Elegant XKE Series 1 in Black on Black with New Chrome

• Matching Numbers Car Ready to Show or Go

• Desirable Five-Speed Gearbox with Original Gearbox Included

The Car: Absolutely stunning in black over black, this E-Type is fresh from a sympathetic engine-out cosmetic restoration resulting in a beautiful deep black finish. The chrome details are freshly replated as well. This car retains its factory original engine which starts and drives well having benefitted from a complete fresh carburetor rebuild, time and re-tune. This E-Type benefits greatly from the discrete fitment of a Tremec five-speed manual transmission with a high-ratio fifth gear for relaxed interstate cruising. The hard-to-source original matching-number Jaguar transmission accompanies this car. Fresh exhaust components and new Dayton tubeless wire wheels complete the drive train. The handling received equal attention in the form of a complete restoration of braking and suspension systems that included overhaul of the rear IRS assembly, new disks, calipers and shocks all the way around. A high-capacity aluminum radiator keeps everything cool. The restoration preserved as many original interior components as possible including the original teak steering wheel. A fresh set of black carpets keep the cockpit looking sharp. An extensive file of receipts document the recent work. Collectors have caught on to the sublime looks of the E-Type coupe in recent years. This car in stunning black with subtle drive-train upgrades checks every box. Don't miss the opportunity to make this one yours.
