Car offered for sale at:
www.thecarnut.com/Jag63Red.html

Sellers description:
1963 Jaguar E-type Roadster
VIN: 879344
Engine: RA1868-9
Body: R6058
Gearbox: EB10026JS

This rust free and restored series 1 3.8 liter XKE roadster was delivered on May 18, 1963 to a gentleman in Los Angeles. The car has spent all its life in
California until very recently when the third owner moved from Los Angeles to Utah. This is a matching number car and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate is
included with the purchase.

The car recently went through a comprehensive mechanical restoration of the engine, cooling system, gearbox, brakes and suspension at a cost which
exceeded $23,000. The work was done by XKs Unlimited in San Luis Obispo, CA, a well known Jaguar restoration shop and parts supplier. Included are
photos and a ton of receipts document the mechanical restoration. The engine only has approximately 250 miles since the rebuilt and is very strong.

I am currently detailing the car and will be posting additional photos when completed.

Price: $48,900

The car recently went through a comprehensive mechanical restoration of the engine, cooling system, gearbox, and brakes at a cost of over $23,000. The
work was done by XKs Unlimited in San Luis Obispo, CA, a well known Jaguar restoration shop and parts supplier. Included are photos and a ton of
receipts documenting the mechanical restoration. The engine only has approximately 250 miles since the rebuilt and is very strong. When the engine was
rebuilt XKs Unlimited found that the head had never been removed, which would indicate the 63K miles shown on the odometer are accurate. In addition
there are other receipts for items such as the rebuilding of the front end suspension ($3500) ... just look at the engine bay photos as they speak for
themselves!

The paint and interior were restored about 10 years old and still look very good. According to the Heritage Certificate this car was originally silver blue. The
color conversion was extensive as you will find red in the trunk floor, around the engine, on the floors and even behind the instrument panel. There is one
small area on the right rear of the bonnet which the paint has been hand re-touched. Looks like someone may have left a tool and then closed the bonnet
chipping the paint, it is hardly noticeable. Other than that there are no dents or scratches .... I would say the paint is about an 8 of out 10. Door, bonnet and
trunk lid gaps are all very good. The chrome is excellent, including a new set of wire wheels with stainless spokes and new knock offs. Interior is very nice
with no tears or rips on the leather; seats show very little wear. The cloth soft top is in excellent condition with a clear back plastic This is an early car with
the aluminum dash console, which I really like.

Car comes with owner's manual, knock off hammer, jack and bag, and lubrication chart .... plus a TON of receipts documenting maintenance and restoration
work done.

Finding a straight and rust free early 3.8 liter e-type is not easy as so many of these cars have rusted away. This, being a southern California car all of its life,
has avoided the dreaded "rust bug". Overall this is a strong #2 condition car, ready to be driven and taken to Jaguar shows.

Price: $59,000
