77,950 MILES
ON EBAY 04/07
SELLER WRITES:

1972 Jaguar V12 XKE Coupe 2+2 Vin: 1S72578



You are viewing a very nice West Coast, Series 3 Jaguar V12 E-TYPE Coupe, in a great color combination: Dark Blue over Gray Leather - with the desirable four-speed manual transmission, wire wheels, and cold air conditioning.



This is the E-Type Coupe you have been waiting for!



A nicely restored and well sorted sports car; simply twist the key and enjoy.



Additional information and photos of this car can be found on my website, along with information about who I am. Bid with confidence, I have a 100% eBay rating.

Current mileage from new: 77,950



It is getting very hard to find nice, quality Jaguar XKE V12 Series 3 Coupes anymore, particularly in the condition of this fine example. With remarkable mechanicals and beautiful cosmetic details, this is one of the best looking V12 coupes I have seen in a very, very long time. A car to be very proud of - good enough to show, but not so perfect you would not want to drive it. And driving this drop dead gorgeous car is the best part! Wonderful V12 engine sounds and a robust exhaust note will fill your Saturday morning drives. Or, make your short commute to work more interesting! The air conditioning blows cold, the heat blows hot…why not.



The four speed transmission keeps you entertained like a proper sports car should, yet the car is comfortable and civilized enough for you to not feel fatigued - once you have arrived at your destination. Good thing, as you will need some energy to answer questions from admiring fans, many eager to provide approval for a shape loved by everyone who sees it. A simple trip to the gas station becomes an event, with discussions with those who remember this Jaguar from their youth. The convertibles are beautiful, but the shape of the Coupe is stunning….and sighting of these cars are very rare these days.



Unfortunately, many of the Series 3 Coupes were not viewed as collectible - and therefore as valuable as their convertible siblings. Routine maintenance and quality restorations common on the convertibles – seemed to have missed many of the coupes over the last 35 years, leaving them worn out and used up. But not this one!



A quality “engine out” re-spray in Dark Blue was applied in October of 1997 at the 60,400 mile mark, which has held up nicely. The interior is clean and original with gray leather over navy blue carpets. You will not be disappointed here, as the pictures tell the story for me. While the engine was out, the maintenance records indicate the clutch and related components were refreshed - thank you Jesus – as this was the proper time and only way to complete this maintenance. The clutch and four speed transmission operate properly and without issue. In fact, the entire car functions quite nicely and everything works - including the original German Kienzle electric clock. Sure the German made time piece does not hold the best time anymore – but that’s the beauty of it. It loses about a half an hour a week – which makes me laugh, but its simple to adjust every so often. (The original owner’s manual actually reads: The instrument is regulated at the factory and should not require further adjustment…. : > )



I am the third owner of the car, which sold new from British Motor Car Distributors, Inc. in Portland Oregon on 6/13/1972 - for a total cost of $8,762.00. The original buyers order lists the options at the time of sale to be:



Chrome wire wheels $276.14

Whitewall tires (now gone) 44.35

Air Conditioning 54.67

Tinted Glass 47.24

Heated Backlite 58.10

AM + FM Radio 230.00

Grill Guard 60.00



Interesting dollar amounts…..



The cars second owner lived in the San Francisco Bay and purchased the car in approximately 1996. I purchased the car in October of 2006. I am a small dealer and appreciator of really nice and unusual sports cars. I only buy cars that I love; I play with them first, giving them any attention they need and then sell them. Hey, someone has to do it! My day job is actually with Jaguar Cars in the Marketing Department at our headquarters in Irvine, CA. I displayed this car will some fair fare at the opening of our new Jaguar Land Rover Dealership in Mission Viejo, CA this past January.



The service and restoration records reveal constant attention from caring owners. A large sum of money has been spent over time to keep this car operating optimally and looking fresh. Receipts from the vehicles second owner are quiet extensive and interesting. This owner exercised the car often and can be credited for giving the car its second life so to speak.



The air conditioning system has received attention over the years and cools down the car very nicely for a foreign car manufactured in 12/1971. All three fan speeds, low, medium, and high blow cold air – with the high speed being quite strong. The cooler knob controls the length of time the compressor stays on – and therefore controls refrigeration.



The original AM/FM Radio and power antenna are now mated with a Sony six disc CD changer hidden under the passenger seat and controlled via a small remote. Allowing the best of both worlds, the sound system is not very impressive, but does allow for modern listening when desired.



Recent maintenance includes a new alternator, spark plugs, miscellaneous light bulb replacements, mechanical adjustments, and a fresh lube, oil, and filter change. Garaged and covered when not in use - this car is ready to drive or show.



Negatives: Not many, the paint is really very nice, but the car has been driven so there are a few minor rock chips on the nose and wheel well areas. The passenger door had one chip that really bothered me, a few inches below the door handle. I had the blemish filled by an automotive paint specialist I have used before - with a single stage paint matched to the gas filler door. The plan was to apply the paint a few times, allowing it to dry for a full week in between each application, and then wet sand the area, hopefully leaving it virtually undetectable. However, after a single application of paint, the blemish became quite acceptable to me. So I stopped there, never completing the additional applications or wet sanding. I simply did not want to risk having anything go wrong. If I did not say anything, you would need to walk around the car a few times before you would spot it, and I was not able to capture it in photographs.



The Avon tires are about 50 – 60%. The brake pads are about 50%. The wire wheels appear to be original and have a few dings in the knock offs, but they look great and this adds some patina. The car did not appear to leak anything when I bought it home. I was kind of amazed. I switched to synthetic oil which now seeps a little leaving a few coin drops over time. The front hood / bonnet fit is actually very good. In some of the photos, I forgot to latch the bonnet on the drivers side after taking the photos of the engine. Once properly latched, there are no gaps. Mechanically I cannot think of anything that needs immediate attention – if it needed anything, I already completed it, and the previous owner appears to have done the same.



I have done my best to provide an accurate and honest evaluation of this car – if you have any questions, please call Ken at 949-842-9198. Bid with confidence – I do not believe you will be disappointed.

1972 XKE V12 Coupe with the rare and desirable 4-speed manual transmission, cold A/C and wonderful color combination.
This is the one you have been waiting for; Vin is: 1S72578, with less than 77,950 original miles. I sold this car to its current owner, Jay in April of 2007. While he enjoyed owning, showing, and looking the car - he did not drive it very much; only 250 miles since he took delivery. He recently phoned asking if I would sell the car on his behalf, as he had his eye on a new vehicle purchase. This vehicle is being sold on consignment via its current owner. The Jaguar is in Bend, Oregon.

I know the car very well and can stand up for it being in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically. This car has very nice details, and has received quality maintenance, and restoration during its life time. The car is complete, needs nothing and comes with history and records of work completed. Since the Jaguar has not traveled very far in the last two years, it is the same car, in the same condition from when I first sold it. She now lives indoors in the lovely community of Bend, Oregon.

Your are viewing an exceptionally clean and well maintained 1972 Jaguar XKE V12 Coupe 2+2, with the rare and desirable 4-Speed manual transmission and cold A/C. The mileage is 78,250 from new, and this car has been on the West Coast its entire life. There are no rust issues and the Navy blue paint is very nice.

I sold this car to its current owner, Jay in April of 2007. While he enjoyed owning it, showing it, and looking at it - he did not drive it very much since he took delivery. He now has his eye on something else and has asked me for my assistance with selling it. I am a small sports car dealer in Southern California. The current owner and his Jaguar live in Bend, Oregon.

I know this car very well and can stand up for it being in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. This car has very nice details, and has received quality maintenance, and restoration during its life time. The car is complete, needs nothing and comes with history and records of work completed.

The Jaguar was recently received a nice cosmetic detail in preparation for the photographs in this listing.

With four speed manual transmission, cold air conditioning, wire wheels and great color combination (Navy blue w/ grey leather interior & navy carpets), this is the one you have been waiting for. The Jaguar currently needs nothing. Simply twist the key and enjoy.

Purchased in 11/09. The drive from Bend Oregon to the Reno NV area and home put more miles on this car than the previous owner did in 2 plus years!! Great trip with only one issue, oil pressure gauge. The wire to the sender was only touching it and not actually hooked up. Quick fix and a great run home.
