KURT TANNER RESTORATIONS offers for sale here on Ebay, a very nice Jaguar in good overall preserved condition. This car was just removed from storage from the last 21 years, and efforts were just taken to get it back on the road. This is a full matching numbers, complete 1963 Jaguar E-type 3.8 Liter Coupe. It has a license plate that shows it was last registered in 1993, and another one (the same) that shows 1978, both from the state of Washington. It appears to have had only one respray in it's current metallic green and a retrim in dark tan. The original color is Carmen Red as seen by the very nicely preserved engine bay, that would respond well to a detailing. This car has clearly lived a nice life indoors a garage.
It is has very straight and solid body with good-fitting panels. The bonnet is excellent with no rust or damage, not even under the front belly pan. The rockers and floors appear exceptionally original and rustfree. The doors and hatch lid fit well. There are a few minor dings and dents. The chrome overall is very good to excellent.
The car was retrimmed at some point in it's life, but still with leather seats. It is usable and decent for a driver, and still has a bit of use left in it. The dashboard is excellent, and all of the gauges are operating correctly.
The car starts up on the button. New carburetor jets were installed and the fuel system was cleaned. The engine is in excellent condition with fantastic oil pressure and no smoke at all. It revs hard and willingly like a good 3.8 should. No noises or issues, just a great, solid, engine that has just come to life after sitting in storage. The car runs, drives, shifts, stops and steers very decently. The brakes need a little attention, as they pull a bit to the right. The chrome wire wheels and tires are in great shape. The front and rear suspension feel nice and taught. The mufflers need replacing. Because of it's good mechanical health, the current mileage of 45,412 is very believable. The car still has it's original spare tire and rim in good condition.
Overall, this very decent driver Jaguar E-type can be put into use right away with a few small remedies. It is a nice looking and attractive car that can be driven and enjoyed as is, in an approachable clean condition. It is also an excellent candidate for a simple and straightforward cosmetic restoration, later on, if one would want to improve it. This matching numbers E-type 3.8 Liter Fixed Head Coupe offers excellent value when compared to a huge project car and it's associated current restoration costs. There is very good financial upside with just fresh paint and interior, for those who want a very nice car to use, avoiding the headache of the costly ground-up restoration...
It is sold with a clear and current CA title. $54,900.
