Seen on eBay, 5/2003. Ad reads:

"1962 JAGUAR XKE SERIES I ROADSTER-- I GUESS IN THE JAGUAR CIRCLES THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER OF THE JAGS, KNOWN AS THE FLAT FLOOR, WELDED LOUVRE CAR. I AM LISTING THIS FOR A LONTIME FRIEND OF MINE WHO IS IN THE BUSINESS OF DOING RESTORATIONS. HE HAS DONE BOTH RESTORATION AND MECHANICAL WORK ON MY OWN PERSONAL CARS FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. HIS RESTORATIONS ARE KNOWN AS THE FINEST IN THE BUSINESS, BREAKING MANY WORLD RECORDS AT AUCTIONS. HE KNOWS CARS VERY WELL AND ONLY BUYS THE BEST FOR HIMSELF. HE PURCHASED THIS CAR TO DO ONE OF THOSE TYPE OF RESTORATIONS THAT DEMAND PRICES OF ABOUT $100,000.00 OR MORE AT AUCTIONS. AFTER PURCHASING THE CAR AND EXAMINING IT CLOSELY, AND DRIVING IT, IT WAS DETERMINED THIS CAR DID NOT NEED RESORATION, IT WAS WAY TO NICE TO START TEARING INTO. THE CAR IS IN JUST BEAUTIFUL CONDITION. OVER THE YEARS IT HAS BEEN REFURBISHED TO BETTER THAN DIVER QUALITY BY A BIT. THE CAR IS FINISHED IN ITS ORIGINAL RED FINISH AND IS JUST SUPERB, BODY IS AS STRAIGHT AS ANY CARS OF THIS TYPE I HAVE SEEN..THE BODY AND PAINT WORK WERE DONE IN A VERY PROFESSIONAL MANNOR.THE NOSE APPERARS TO BE FREE OF PAST DAMAGE, DING FREE, CHIP FREE ETC. NO DINGS, DENTS, OR DAMAGE.IN THE BODY.THERE DOES APPEAR TO BE SOME PAST REPAIRED DAMAGE, NOT SERIOUS AT ALL, ON THE INNER FENDER AREA OF THE FRONT PASSENGER QUARTER.THE REPAIR COULD HAVE BEEN DONE A LITTLE BETTER. IT IS IN AN AREA WHERE THE PIECE THAT SHOWS DAMAGE COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE, SO YOU SEE ITS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL. ALL THE CHROME, STAINLESS, BUMPERS ETC ARE IN EXTRAORDINARY CONDITION FOR ORIGINAL. YOU WOULD NOT THINK OF DOING ANY RECHROMING. THE WINDSHIELD FRAME IS BEAUTIFUL. UNDER THE HOOD IS SHOW QUALITY. YOU CAN DEFINITELY SHOW THIS CAR WITH THE HOOD OPEN AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE PHOTOS. A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT UNDER THE HOOD. I CANNOT TELL YOU WHETHER THE ENGINE HAS EVER BEEN REBUILT ALONG WITH ANY OF ITS RELATED PARTS, BUT IT RUNS AND DRIVES BEAUTIFULLY, EVERYTHING OPERATES PROPERLY AS IT SHOULD. BRAKES ARE EXCELLENT ETC. AT THE PRESENT TIME THE CAR DOES NOT NEED ANYTHING MECHANICALLY. ALL THE GLASS IS JUST ABOUT AS PERFECT AS YOU WILL FIND. THE TRUNK AREA IS COMPLETE WITH THE TOOLS, DETAILED, SPARE WHEEL ETC.THE INTERIOR IS REALLY BREATH-TAKING. I'M SURE IT WAS REDONE SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, BECAUSE THE SEAT MATERIAL DOOR PANELS LOOK ABOUT NEW. THE DASH AND CONSOLE AREA LOOK REMARKABLE. ALL THE GAUGES ETC WORK AS THEY SHOULD. THE STEERING WHEEL IS DAMAGE FREE.ALL THE NUMBERES SEEM TO MATCH AS THEY SHOULD. THE NUMBER ON THE DATA PLATE MATCHES THE ONE UP ON THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE, THE BODY PANELS , BONNETT ETC,MATCH THE PLATE STAMP IN THE TRUNK.(THERE ARE PICTURES OF ALL THESE NUMBERS) THE SERIAL NUMBER IS 876008. IT IS POWERED BY THE 3.8 LITRE OVERHEAD CAM ENGINE. THE FRAME APPEARS TO NEVER TO HAD ANY DAMAGE WHATSOEVER, ITS BEAUTIFUL. THE FLOOR PANS ARE VIRGIN, RUST FREE, NOT COVERED WITH A BUNCH OF UNDERCOATING HIDING DEFECTS. THEY ARE PROBABLY THE BEST ORIGINAL FLOOR PANS YOU WILL FIND. HEADLIGHT BUCKETS AND COVERS ARE IN SUPERB CONDITION. HAS A NEW SOFT TO WITH A NEW PLASTIC BACK WINDOW. IT HAS NOT BEEN UP IN A WHILE SO THE TOP IS HARD TO LATCH UNTIL YOU LEAVE IT OUT IN THE SUN FOR A WHILE. IT JUST NEEDS TO STRETCH A LITTLE. ALSO A UNRESTORED HARDTOP GOES WITH THE CAR. THIS IS A SUPERB DRIVER GRADE -SHOW TYPE OF CAR. IT RUNS GOOD AND LOOKS TERRIFIC. SURE DRAWS A LOT OF ATTENTION OUT ON THE ROAD, OR AT THE CRUISE NIGHTS.THE CAR PRESENTLY HAS AN ARIZONA TITLE SHOWING APPROXIMATELY 34000 MILES, WHICH ARE ASSUMED NOT ACTUAL.IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL DEAN AT 480-905-3707, CELL PHONE 480-363-4449. I WILL GET THE ANWSERS FOR YOU OR PUT YOU IN TOUCH WITH KEN, THE OWNER. THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET ANWSERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS IS BY PHONE. BECAUSE OF MY TRAVELS ,I USUALLY CANNOT GET BACK TO YOU IN A TIMELY MANNOR. PLEASE DO NOT ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, YOU WILL NOT GET AN ANWSER. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS THE PURCHASE OF THE CAR BEFORE THE AUCTION ENDS, PLEASE CALL SO WE CAN DISCUSS IT. WE CAN ONLY DISCUSS PURCHASING THIS VEHICLE IF YOU ARE PRESENTLY BIDDING ON THE CAR. IF YOU WANT THE CAR INSPECTED, OR HAVE TO ARRANGE FINANCING, PLEASE HAVE IT DONE DURING THE AUCTION PERIOD. AT THE END OF THE AUCTION IS NOT THE TIME TO HAVE THIS DONE. THANKS DEAN. ALL THE INFORMATION SUPPLIED ABOVE WAS OBTAINED BY VISUAL INSPECTION, AND VERBAL INFO DIRECTLY FROM THE OWNER. THE CAR IS BEING PURCHASED AS IS, NO WARRANTY."
