    Sellers comment:
    This is a 1967/ 68 Series 1.5 E-Type Jaguar 2+2 with a 4 speed manual. I chose a 2+2 because of my height; I wanted more leg and headroom. In my opinion this car has all the best features and equipment of 1967 series one and 1969 series 2 cars. 4.2 liter straight 6 and the early smooth cam covers. Inside it has the toggle switches, not the rocker switches of other series 1.5 cars. British racing green with a biscuit ,( beige ) interior.


    Vehicle Condition

    This car was a complete frame off restoration and no expense was spared. Every aspect of this car was gone over in a 3-year professional restoration by the multi award winning restoration shop Classic European. The restoration was completed in 1998 at a total cost of $72,218.42 OUCH! That doesn’t include the cost of the car. I have driven the car on and off over that time only in Southern California. The odometer reads 91,761miles less than 10,000 miles since the restoration. The car is beautiful, a head turner every time I drive it. I have added a 6CD changer and modern AM FM stereo cassette system, but don’t worry; it is seamlessly hidden in the car. The stereo and changer are mounted under the front seats (Both reachable by the driver) on brackets that a sandwiched between the seat brackets and seat rails, so no holes where drilled in the car. The removable face of the stereo has been removed and wired so it operates remotely. It is hidden on the backside of the driver’s sun visor and upholstered in. So when the sun visor is up, there is no sign of any system. The sun visor frames have been fabricated out of aluminum, so they don’t sag and warp with the heat like the original fiberboard ones did. The original stereo is still installed where the factory put it. The front speakers have been replaced by top of the line 51/2-inch models and the 6x9’s are again hidden out of site, yet in plain sight. Look at the trunk photo of the backside of the back seat. That beige fabric panel is hiding the two top of the line 6x9”s. Again, I didn’t want the car damaged, so they are mounted on an aluminum panel that clips over the top of the rear seat articulation bar and the bottom of the panel clips into a small grove in the rubber luggage pad rails. The stereo system rocks. The engine runs stronger than it did new. The car has brand new slightly wider than stock wire wheels and tires at a cost of $1,752.00 Brand new hex nuts across the top of the engine. Brand new wiring harness. Almost every single part of the car was pulled apart cleaned, repainted, replated and rebuilt. I have receipts for over $17,000.00 in parts and over 1200 hours of labor. I have a complete folder of invoices on everything that was worked on and a photo book of the restoration that will go with the car. I also have the original Talbot racing mirrors that where on the car when I bought it, but I never got around to welding the small crack in one of them. I’ll include these as well.

    I do not drive the car much anymore and I need room in the garage.

    Added other numbers from data plate based upon reply from current owner/seller. I did not enter his gearbox number as it doesn't make sense at all.

    His E-mail included the following details:

    Yes, the ones I can read (Body, Head) match. The restoration paperwork
    lists the same numbers as well.
    Engine # 7E 53326-8
    Gearbox # IE 13212
    Body # 4E 53705
    I think have owned the car since 1993 or 1994 (I have to look at the
    purchase date. It was bought in Van Nuys California)
    I believe I am the second or maybe the third owner. I was told it was a
    California car. When the car was stripped only minor surface rust was
    found. It has new undercoating, epoxy primer and baked paint.
    I have many of the original records at my shop and they will go with the
    car of course.

    Comment on YouTube "This is a really nicely restored 2+2 Jag for sale that gets driven up a 6 mile long mountain dirt road on it's way home. Further complicating matters is the construction going on above the building. Saw dust is everywhere! It was far too cold to wash this car before my January east coast inspection, and the owner never got to cleaning it up at the end of the driving season. New chrome, new paint, rebuilt number's matching engine, rebuilt trans-axle, all in the past 5000 miles. Restored knock offs, recent Coker Redlines, rebuilt brakes and some suspension work completed on a very solid underbody. The interior needs a thorough scrubbing and cleaning, but shows virtually no real wear. The cost of the restoration exceeded $50,000. Inspected personally by Jason Phillips, certified auto appraiser and owner of www.autoappraise.com. The car has just been consigned to us to represent. We are asking $35,000. A car of this caliber could not be built for that kind of money. Since the time of the video, it has been detailed up and looks very nice. 810-694-2008. 810-691-2664."

    Car to return to auction 6/13
    www.bonhams.com/auctions/21153/lot/372/[%27-value_low%27]&back_to_year=2003&date_range=future&main_index=lot&department=&query=jaguar&create_facets=False&value_data_range_display=

    Auction description:
    2 Jun 2013 12:30 EDT Greenwich
    Motorcars
    Lot 372
    1967 Jaguar XKE Series 1½ 2+2 Coupe
    Chassis no. 1E 77695
    Engine no. 7E 53326-8
    -Offered from a Private Collection
    -Former California restoration
    -Popular British Racing Green scheme

    Believed to have been delivered new to California, this XKE Coupe was acquired by the former owner there in Van Nuys, in around 1993/4, at which point it was stated to be only a one or two owner car. A restoration was subsequently carried out at Classic European in California, with work reportedly tallying some $70,000 in parts and labor, and completed in 1998.

    The current owners purchased the 'E' Type in 2004, by which time some 10,000 miles had been added to the odometer and restoration. It has continued to see use, albeit more modestly, and at the same time it has gained some recent light localized damage to the hood and rear quarter panels. The interior would benefit from a professional cleaning. Regardless of these small detriments, the car started without fuss when it was photographed and seemed to be running well.

    In archetypal British Racing Green livery, this is an entry level XKE with stick shift and space for two and two.
    Estimate:
    US$ 28,000 - 35,000

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
