Ebay item 7/14/14
Car has a buy it now price of $43,900 for 20 days. 21k miles.
1969 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES TWO ROADSTER. RED/BLACK. 4-SPEED. CHROME WIRE WHEELS.
Up for sale here on Ebay is a very decent 1969 Jaguar E-type Series Two Roadster.
It has just been removed from storage for a period of about 20 years. The car looks very good cosmetically from about 10 feet, but close up the paint is showing some signs of it's age with some checking on the hood and trunk lid.
The interior appears very decent and usable. The seats are trimmed in leather, and would only require some conditioning. The softtop is a replacement type with no rips or tears and a very nice back window. There is a newer tonneau cover included. The chrome and glass look very nice overall. The chrome wire wheels present well, but the tires should be changed out as a safety precaution. The wood portion of the original steering wheel is starting to separate from the aluminum. All of the gauges and switchgear appear in good order and original.
Jacked up, the car looks solid underneath. The underside of the bonnet at the front looks really good, no damage. The hood could use some minor alignment - adjustment for a perfect fit along the bulkhead. The doors open and shut fine. The trunk lid sits a little proud, like most cars do.
This car has been fitted with a 3.8 Triple Carb Series One E-type engine and gearbox, engine number RA3203-9. The previous owner, who was very forthright, started the engine up with a battery and fuel that he gravity fed into the carbs. The car was yard driven for a short period around his property with great results. The car ran very well and strong, with good oil pressure. It currently needs some brakework and a fuel system cleanout at this point to make it a nice driver. He used the handbrake to stop the car, afraid that pushing the brake pedal could seize the brakes after the long storage period...
Overall, this car presents a good opportunity to secure a very decent Jaguar E-type 6-cylinder Roadster. With a little bit of mechanical recommissioning and minor efforts, one could turn this car into a very usable and attractive road car. This car is located in Southern California
