Ebay item 9/11/14
Car has a buy it now price of $27,900 for 20 days.
1966 JAGUAR E-TYPE XKE 2+2 COUPE. 4.2 LITERS. SERIES ONE. OLDE ENGLISH WHITE WITH ORIGINAL BLACK LEATHER TRIM. 3-SPEED AUTOMATIC. AIR CONDITIONING. CHROME WIRE WHEELS. 2-OWNER CALIFORNIA CAR. BELIEVED 57,699 ORIGINAL MILES. MATCHING NUMBERS.
Offered for sale, here on Ebay, by KURT TANNER RESTORATIONS, is a 1966 Jaguar E-type 2+2 coupe. This car was recently discovered in the San Diego area of California and was purchased from only the second owner. He purchased the car in the early 1970's and held the car in his possession for over the past 40 years! There are a few receipts in his name dated around the mid 70's... It is a very well-preserved, honest, original car that has a full matching numbers drivetrain. The factory air conditioning equipment in the engine compartment was removed early in it's life, but was saved and is included with the sale of the car (picture).
It is a very good running and driving car having benefitted from much recent mechanical work. This included a full braking system rebuild (front and rear calipers rebuilt in stainless steel, new master cylinder, servo, flex lines, pads, etc.), ignition system tune up, radiator rodding out, new cooling hoses, a complete fuel system service, new tires fitted and balanced on very nice chrome wheels, and an engine oil/filter/lube. As a result, the car starts quickly on the button with no smoke, has excellent oil pressure, and runs and drives very well with good acceleration and pickup. The gearbox shifts well with no issues. Some tappets could use some fine adjustment. But a very good driving car overall with no known mechanical issues.
This Jaguar left the factory in it's original color of Primrose Yellow with black trim. The engine compartment, framerails, and spare tire area still show signs of the original paint. The body on the car is very good to excellent overall, with only a couple scrapes and dings. All of the panels open and close well. The modest repaint is showing it's age in some areas with an area lifting in the middle of the hood and on the hatchlid. The chrome and glass appears to be decent and original.
The interior trim on the car is completely original and unrestored. Original leather to the front and rear seats, original carpets, door and quarter panels, Jaguar seat belts,etc. The headliner material has been removed. Some items could be saved and revived, others replaced. The dashboard switches and instruments appear functioning and all original.
Overall, a very nice, usable, matching numbers Series One 2+2 for easy improvement. This car offers the desirable and original triple carb setup mated to the 4.2 engine, covered glass headlamps, and other attractive Series One features. It is a very good, honest car with over $3700 recently spent on mechanical improvements to make it roadworthy. This car is located in Southern California and is sold with a clear California title. It can be viewed by appointment. $27,900.
