    Ebay item 9/13/09
    cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jaguar-E-Type-XKE-1964-Jaguar-XKE-Convertible-3-8L-One-O ...
    Car has a buy it now price of $121,000 for 20 days.

    Sellers description:
    This 3.8 Liter 265 HP 6 cylinder 4-speed XKE Roadster is a true un-restored, un-molested, survivor with 20,102 documented original single owner miles - factory and showroom original in every way but newer tires (except original Dunlop spare) and maintenance components.

    This car comes with complete documentation from the moment of purchase, its entire service history, signed letters of authenticity, current condition report and boxes of brand new replacement gaskets, electrical system components, replacement oil drain plug washers and much more - all factory parts, not refurbished, not aftermarket, not replicas!

    By now you might have guessed that this car has been owned by an engineer. Yup, one of the most fastidious we've ever met. When not in use he's kept this Jag on jack stands (no weight on the suspension or tires) in a secure, climate controlled two-space collection room on epoxy flooring, and near-clean room conditions along with an equally awesome '31 Ford.

    In preparation for sale this Jag when through a thorough inspection and received extensive routine and preventive maintenance, including:

    * A compression test of the original un-rebuilt engine showing:
    o Cylinder 1 = 175 lbs
    o Cylinder 2 = 178 lbs
    o Cylinder 3 = 182 lbs
    o Cylinder 4 = 180 lbs
    o Cylinder 5 = 180 lbs
    o Cylinder 6 = 179 lbs

    Complete removal, flushing and cleaning of the entire fuel system, refurbishing the tank, new fuel pump, new level sensor, new sediment bowl and line filters, rebuilding of the triple SU carburetors, including new needles, and servicing the choke assembly.

    Complete service of the cooling system including flushing, new coolant tank, thermostat and coolant.

    Flushing the crankcase and refilling with Castrol 20W-50.

    Complete inspection and servicing of the electrical/ignition system, including a new battery.

    The transmission was completely inspected and serviced; functioning as new.

    The exhaust system is original and as new.

    The brake system has been inspected, is original and functions as new.

    All gauges, lights, wipers, horn and other accessories work as new.

    In all just under $4,000 was spent preparing this Jag for her second owner; perhaps that's you. This Jag purrs like a perfectly tuned feline waiting to pounce and runs exquisitely - as she was meant to.

    The frame, pans, suspension are all original and exactly as you would expect with just 20,102 road miles. The car was factory undercoated. The suspension bushings and body mounts are not torn or cracked, but are pliable and not compressed. The underside is as dry as any Series I Jag fresh from the factory. Even the factory assembly chalk marks are clearly visible. All ride on true and round factory wire wheels with 185 x 15 Pirelli Cinturato 5/8” white wall radials.

    The body is all original, undamaged, un-corroded and glistens as new. Minor paint work - which can be seen in certain light - was done by Jaguar at the US Port of Entry before the car was released to the selling dealership. This was disclosed to the buyer at the time of purchase and is reported and included in the documentation. The owner has made no attempt to correct this and believes, as we do, that this imperfection is part of the car's overall perfection. As a result, about 95% of the paint is absolutely factory original.

    Like many perfectionist-owners, this Jag's owner saw and repaired minor deterioration on the rear valence. Then he created two weep holes to allow both side trunk cavities to properly and fully drain any condensation. He drilled an additional set of weep holes in the dual exhaust pipes to allow for proper condensation evacuation. All have done their job to prevent deterioration of original components.

    All the door gaskets and body seals are as new. The sale includes brand new replacements should the time come for a change. The glass is original and one stone chip on the windscreen has been professionally serviced and is virtually invisible. All the surrounding window felt and seals are as new. All exterior chrome and brite-work is showroom clear and undamaged.

    The interior is as new, with no excuses or disclaimers. While this Jag has 20,102 original miles in the odometer, the passenger seat has been used less than 1,000 of those miles; maybe less. The wood wheel, padding, leather, carpeting, gauges, toggles, surrounds and brite-work are all original and showroom fresh. The top is original and like new. The Izen glass is clear and non-yellowed, but has very slight wear in the fold.

    Please note that this Jag came without a radio. But she comes complete with its tonneau cover, original tool kit, jack (with replacement pliers), brass and leather wheel mallet, owner's manuals, purchase documents, complete history, spare key and more.

    The exhaust resonators are not correct for this car, they are 4.2 versions. No explanation here. Not necessarily an issue, mufflers used to rust out quickly during leaded fuel days. But what else is non-original?

    I just saw Jerrys post about the 4.2 resonators, which is correct, and they were installed by the dealer, shame on them! The car had the header tank replaced, a couple of water hoses and there is a question of why there is one phillips head screw in the commision plate. At the time I took the pictures I had no idea that the car would be shortly sold, if so I would have taken many more pictures and inquired about several small things.
