Ebay item 7/5/05
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll
Opening bid $45,000, no bids yet, 5 days left in auction. Auto trans.

Sellers description:
Here is the story of our recently finished XKE. In the fall of 2003 we saw this car sitting in the garage of some friends. The car had 3 flat tires and was being used as a shelf. It had been sitting for 12 years. The folks that owned this timeless piece of British auto history were the second owners, since 1976, I believe. The first owner was the selling dealers wife (Continental Cars, St. Louis). Before we left my wife told the wife of the owner that if they ever wanted to sell to let us know. About six weeks later their daughter called my daughter and said her mother was ready to get it out of the garage. On Sat. 11/8/03 I took the shop owner who would be rehabbing this Cat for me to look at and assess its needs. On Sun. 11/9/03 I trailered the XKE home. On Mon. 11/10/03 I delivered it to the auto shop to begin the project. Wed. morning 11/12/03 I called the shop owner to discuss something relative a 72 Oldsmobile he was working on for me and mentioned that I would like to be there when it came time to fire up the Jag that had been sitting for 12 years. Wed. 11/12/03 3 days after taking delievery of our XKE he had it running. Over the next 12 months this XKE received the following: Fresh original Old English White paint on the body and hard top - New biscuit tan leather interior and soft top (originally red interior with black top) - New wire wheels and new Michelins - All fluids, filters and necessary seals and gaskets changed. We were unable to locate the factory style bumper over riders ( we have originals). The engine was not pulled, the shop owner did not think it necessary or cost effective because the car was running fine and has just under 43,000 original miles. In retrospect I wish we would have pulled it and done a frame off. The engine has a small leak ( this can be seen in one of the pictures) the spots on the board represent months of sitting in my garage. The reason for selling the Jag is this: The classic car hobby is fun but can be costly for someone with little or no automotive mechanical ability. That's me, little or no auto knowledge or ability, plus I already have 2 other classics in the garage. Keep in mind this is a 31 year old car. It is very, very nice but not concourse or pristine. I am very proud to own this vechile as anyone would be. This car took a 1st place in the only show its been in so far. It also attracted more attention in 1 day at that show than my 72 Oldsmobile ( which is a National 1st place car) has in 3 years of shows. I also have some pictures of the restoration that will go with the car but they are not on a disk so I can't e-mail those. This car looks great, starts easy and runs like a bat out of hell. With a little knowledge, tweaking and tlc this will become a high dollar investment for the new owner. On Friday 4/29/05 this XKE went to Moore Jaguar in St. Louis for 3 weeks to have the gas tank pulled and all 4 carbs rebuilt and balanced. I also found out the hard way on the way home from this trip to the Jag dealer that the gas gauge is not accurate. As I said before I know very little about cars and less about Jags, so if you have any technical questions I'll do my best but don't be upset if I say "I don't know".

Car has a buy it now price of $65,000 for 6 days, seller lbilimited, car now said to be in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 51k miles.

Sellers description:
The example on offer is a 1974 Jaguar E-Type Roadster, chassis number UE1S26005BW, engine number 7S15401, with 51,913 miles on the odometer. We know that the car was originally delivered as a US car per its equipment and was originally white with a Red interior, and also an Automatic. Documentation present with the car shows that in 2003, we see that this example changed hands from a Ms. Carol Artman of St. Louis Missouri to a Mr. Daniel Breen of Foristell, Missouri on November 9, 2003. Mr. Breen executed a complete restoration of the vehicle in 2003 as documented by photos and some receipts. In 2010, with it's most recent owner, the car received a $15,000+ sorting and freshening by marque specialist Ragtops & Roadster of Perkasie, PA.

The ivory paint shows nicely having few acceptable flaws from use, but nothing major. This E-Type has excellent panel fitment, showing proper clearness form panel to panel. Looking closely at the at the edges of the front bonnet, one will note the paint is chipped in a few areas as well as having developed several small cracks. This is a common occurrence with older restorations and is not nearly severe enough to warrant any refinishing.

All the metal is free of any notable dents or dings, the chrome presents well, and all the rubber items appear supple and unharmed. In the center of the front windscreen is a minor stone chip, which is subtle and requires no repairs. The tan convertible top is flawless in both presentation and fitment. The chrome wire wheels are well kept, mounted on a fresh set of Dunlop tires.

The interior of this E-Type is upholstered in tan leather and lacks any major blemishes. Either of the door jams are free of significant inconsistencies, with the factory stickers still preserved. Inspecting the seats, the bolsters are still in good shape, as is the rest of the interior.

The dash is flawless, the gauges are fully operable, and door panels show nicely. An aftermarket wooden Nardi steering wheel has replaced the original unit, which is a relief to most and much easier to live with in a driver. Glancing down at the tan rugs, they are in line with an older restoration but are a bit dingy in the driver side foot-well from use. This could be remedied with a professional cleaning.

Open the front bonnet and one is presented with a very tidy engine bay. All finishes are in good and correct condition and related engine components appearing in like new condition. The engine bay shows signs of recent sorting and servicing, all items in order and done so within the guises of correctness. The factory stampings and data tags are also present and accounted for. The trunk area is incredibly original with original glue still holding the sound deadening in the spare wheel compartment; correct clamps and overall rust/accident free presentation and as one would hope for.

The undercarriage shows no severe inconsistencies but more so typical attributes of use. Some of the exposed metal surfaces and bolt head have a light layer of corrosion and certain finishes have begun to fade here and there. Structurally, the frame shows straight down the body of the car, suspension components are in order, and all the metal is solid. Factory or dealer undercoating is still in place likely from new, but everything appears to be solid and factory welds noted throughout.

The maintenance records for this example outline extensive mechanical servicing and sorting. Between June 2010 and December 2013; a new camshaft was installed, valves adjusted, carbs removed-reinstalled and tuned, rear exhaust replaced, fuel system serviced, front and rear shocks replaced, front sway bar links replaced, and windscreen wiper motor repaired. Additionally, a new modern 5-Speed transmission was installed and done to a very high standard. This has resulted in a mechanically sound example that is turn-key.

The 12-cylinder power plant starts from cold with little effort and idles smoothly. During hard use, the engine performs flawlessly, pulling strong. The steering feels tight, brakes provide sufficient stopping power, and clutch functioning, as it should. When coming to a stop, the right rear brake pads intermediately make a soft humming noise. It requires no immediate attention but perhaps something to note for the next routine service.

The 1974 Jaguar E-Type Roadster on offer is a well-rounded and honest car that has seen comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical refreshing. This is an excellent opportunity to take a sound, entry level E-Type into ownership that is ready to be driven, toured, and enjoyed. Offered with this sale is the books, tools, jack, spare wheel, soft top boot, and knock off hammer.
