Current bid $10,100 reserve not met, 13 bids, 6 days left in auction

Sellers description:
1969 Jaguar XKE 2+2, Auto Trans, A/C, 4.2L, 60,500 miles, Dual overhead Cam's, Twin Stromberg carbs, Red Leather seats, Chrome wire wheels, 4-wheel power disc brakes, New tires, New front carpet, No rust. No bondo, No accidents, Never smoked in. Never driven in snow. Always Garaged (since 1975), Runs great. The original owner could not make payments and reported it stolen. 3 years later (1975) a farmer was plowing his field and found the car under a canvas tarp in a wooded area in the middle of nowhere in rural Ohio. The police figured the original owner (or whoever stole it) was planning on moving the car out of state and selling it but got cold feet. This was before computerized VIN records. The car was in pristine condition. First National Bank took possession and sold the car at auction in Akron Ohio. It has been in my family ever since. My mother bought it, then gave it to me. The AC does not work. Sometime around 1998 one of the hoses blew. The shop said the Compressor, Condenser, and Evaporator were okay. They could not find a replacement hose at the time and I never followed through to get it fixed. One seam in the passenger's seat has come undone. The leather is intact. You need to remove the seat cover, turn it inside out, and stitch it back up. The car was originally rustproofed by Tuff-Kote with a lifetime warranty, but they are long gone. Not a big deal since there is no rust. I replaced the needles, seats and gaskets in both carb's in the late 70's. There is no catalytic converter. We have been using premium gas. When we bought the car it was overheating. We had the radiator rebuilt within the first month and the problem went away. It has twin cooling fans and you can drive it in the 90F heat of summer all day. Some areas of the headliner have come unstuck. I'm not sure of the correct way to fix that, so I left it alone. This car looks and runs Great! Everything is Original Equipment. Nothing has been restored.
