Ebay item 7/23/15
www.ebay.com/itm/331610910686
Current bid US $37,100 reserve not met 4 bids 8 days left in auction.

Sellers description:
Beautiful, one owner, 1969 Jaguar XKE 4.2 roadster. I am not a dealer, I am a family friend of the original owner and I'm assisting her in selling her beloved Jaguar. The car was purchased new from Harrington Motors in Montgomery New York in 1969. It has always been garaged and for the most part is all original. It currently has 45,xxx original miles on it's all original, numbers matching drive train. The interior is all original from its black leather seats to it's mahogany steering wheel to its original Jaguar rubber floor mats. Some scuffs on the leather seats are present, the pad on the center console is a little worn and the clock in the dash does not work, the rear view mirror is cracked. The wood on the steering wheel is cracked but could be easily repaired.
The exterior of the car is in excellent condition for an original, forty-six year old car. The car was repainted in the 1970's due to a fender bender type accident but the Primrose Yellow paint has held up very well. It does have some small dings, chips and scuffs as you would expect of a forty year old paint job. One of the issues with the paint is that some of the trim pieces have traces of the repaint on them. The convertible top is in excellent condition. The original chrome wire wheels are in great shape with little rust and just a trace of peeling. The chrome trim is in nice shape.
The original engine runs great. It did have some work done last winter by Klaus Garage in Hopewell Junction New York. The carburetors were rebuilt, the gas tank was replaced, clutch slave cylinder, new battery, brake fluid reservoir, brake master and servo unit, fuel pump, basic tune-up etc work along with a passed New York State inspection. The car runs great, This past May, the car was driven fifty plus miles from my house in Hopewell Junction NY to the Royals Car Show at Lime Rock Racetrack in CT without a problem.
I have a couple of short YouTube videos of the car on the road. I can email the links upon request.
Please keep in mind that this is a 46 year old, unrestored car. There are some minor issues with the car. The exhaust could use some work, the Dunlop radials should be replaced, some of the rubber trim should be replaced etc. but how many world class automobiles of this age, in this condition, are presented for sale by the original owner? This is a rare opportunity to purchase a 'time capsule car'.

Car to return to auction 12/17

Auction description;
NEC Classic Motor Show Sale 2017
1968 Jaguar E-Type series 2 4.2 Manual
Lot No.: 630
Registration: NOVA Issued
Chassis Number: 1R7140
Engine Number: 7R1297-9
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 4200
Year of Manufacture: 1968
RHD/LHD: Left Hand Drive
Estimate (£): 90,000 - 110,000

"One lady owner from new" is a well-used expression that has pervaded the motor trade for decades and refers to the mythical situation where suddenly a car becomes available that has covered very few miles, is in wonderful condition, and has only been lightly used and kept warm and dry by its one lady owner. A rare occurrence, never really happens you might think, but, it's not a myth, it does happen, and this E-Type is the perfect example.

According to its accompanying Heritage Certificate, this left-hand drive, Series 2 Jaguar E-Type OTS was originally finished in Pale Primrose Yellow with a Black interior - the colour scheme it pleasingly wears today. Manufactured on 22nd August 1968, it was dispatched to Herrington Motors of Montgomery, New York State and purchased by its first and only private keeper, a Miss Sarah J Hammer. The car was indeed used lightly for the first 17 years covering only 45,000 miles until, in 1985, a long-term illness prevented Miss Hammer from driving her beloved E-Type and it was put into storage. There it was to remain for the next 29 years until its inevitable sale. There is a letter with the car from Miss Hammer in late August 2015 confirming her sole ownership and the mileage of 45,063 at that point.

Prior to its return to the UK the car was subject to a mechanical overhaul by Klaus Motors of New York. On its arrival here it was treated to a full service with fresh fluids and fitted with a new brake servo, brake and clutch master cylinders, a stainless steel exhaust, five new period-correct Dunlop tyres, and a new hood and carpets by Aldridge Trimmers.

A matching chassis and engine numbers example, the car is accompanied by the aforementioned Heritage Certificate, a collection of invoices, handbooks, original wallet with service book, and the original jack and hammer in their bag. The original advisory sticker is still on the speedo and 70's service stickers have been left in place on the B-post. There is also a NOVA document confirming all taxes paid and a current MOT with 'no advisories'.

This is indeed a rare opportunity. A 'one lady owner from new' low mileage, Primrose E-Type with perfect provenance and a chance to become its second keeper. Form an orderly queue.
