Ebay item 10/23/10
Current bid $17,876 reserve not met, 10 bids 5 days left in auction. 96k miles.
This 1969 convertible has been my pride and joy for the last 12 years. As I have recently retired and am getting older, I simply cannot give her the attention she deserves. I am looking for a car enthusiast who can appreciate the beauty and prestige of the classic jag.
* Totally restored by previous owner in late eighties. 16,600k miles since then.
* All original records, receipts, description, parts used and service since 1985 through present
* Initial restoration done by Roger Worthington a well known restoration pro and included:
+ Engine transmission, crankshaft pulled and rebuilt
+ New valves, piston, headers, suspension
+ Interior, radiator, ANSA exhaust
+ Bodywork stripped, painted with chrome removed, etc. etc. etc
+ Black canvas top
+ Triple Weber performance carbs
+ Quick car
* I purchased from local owner in 1998
* In the last year I have updated or upgraded (all work professionally done):
+ Tie rods
+ Ball pinions
+ All total brake system and calipers
+ Rear end differential bearing
+ Clutch cylinder
+ Fuse boxes
+ steering rax
+ etc. etc. etc at a cost exceeding $10k
+ Carbs set at Summit Point Raceway last week (10/13/10)
The car is in tremendous shape but yes, it still needs work. It is mechanically sound - I have driven it around town and even on longer 250+ mile trips. It is a presentable car and this is an honest evaluation. It most likely needs (in the future)
* Minor body work on lower outside
* Footwells & under heater area
