    Car listed on EBay:

    cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll

    Description: Jaguar : XKE
    1969 Jaguar XKE ONE OWNER LOW MILES

    Miles: 36000 Doors: 2 doors
    Transmission: Manual Interior: Black
    Engine: 6 - Cyl. Year: 1969
    VIN Number: 1R7130 Exterior: Yellow

    Vehicle Description: Here is an opportunity of a lifetime to own the most desirable ORIGINAL Series II, E-Type from my private collection. This roadster only has 36000 original miles. The same family has owned this E-Type since 1969. The person that I purchased it from said that his father-in law bought it, than gave it to his daughter (his wife) when he passed and when she passed he decided to sell this long time family heirloom. This is one of few Jaguars I have ever owned that is like a time capsule and runs & drives like a champ. With out hesitation I can say you can hop in this car and drive it with no problem. I am selling this car to complete some longtime overdue ongoing projects. The car starts on a dime and does not smoke oil pressure is 50 PSI plus. The paint has some blemishes like flaking on the doors and spider webbing and nicks. Also the numbers that I can see like the engine match the ID plate. The worse thing about this car is the paint but it is the original color and no rust. The interior is in excellent condition and the top is the same only with a small tear near the seam of the side window (it is unnoticeable and can be repaired). This is a car that you can drive or show and win respectable notoriety.

    The original engine in this car was completely overhauled and finished in 2008. Every part except the block, head, crankshaft and both camshafts were renewed. Head was planed, as was flywheel. Then in 2010 the entire rear end was taken off the car and all parts brought up to new-like standards. This work was done in Pensacola first by Ian Brown, formerly Jaguar's North American tech rep, and when he died halfway through the rear end work, the rear end was reworked and assembled by James Michael Bamford. This car alternates driving chores with my '91 Corvette. Not only is the rear and engine in top notch condition, but so is the body which was repainted in 2004 in its original color, Pale Primrose, but with 3 color coats and 3 clear coats. The car was purchased in 2003. The upholstery in the interior and the boot were renewed in 2004. This car may be one of the very best running E types in the USA.

    This car is driven since its restoration. Engine, front end, clutch and complete rear end have been totally restored. As of this date, 24 Feb 11, car has only 2000 miles since engine restoration and 400 miles since rear restoration. Interior has been restored as has the boot. Of course, new paint on body. Probably the best running E Type in North America.

As of July 2017 car is in like-new condition. Has been garaged since purchase in 2003.
